'oz me. l



To' all 'whom t may concern: Be it known that I, PETER IAGULLI, a sub- ]ect of the King of Italy, and a resident of the city of Boston, in the county of Suf-- folk and Commonwealth of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Means for Attaching Heels', of which the following is a full, clear, and exact specication. -1 rlhe object of my invention is the effecting of improved means for attaching heels Vof the so-called French and Cuban types, and heels of other forms as well, tothe shoes worn by ladies and misses.

Heels as attached'to shoes previous to my invention are `Aquite insecure, being verfy liable to getting pulled olf by catching in some crack in the paving. Further, there'V is constant danger from the tacks ordinarily driven down through the sole' into the heel for fastening the latter inplace. The heads of these tacks or nails quickly become rusted from the moisture of the feet, and stain and rot the hose, and become liable to infectthe wearer with lock-.j aw or blood poisoning hrough a scratch which they may give in the eet. Y

In addition to the tacks or nailsusually employed, the heels are glued to the shoesoles, the same being done before the tacks are driven in. Consequently, clamps have to be used for tightly confining the heels to the soles until the glue has become thoroughly hardened, frequently entailing a. delay of a day before the clamps can be removed and applied to other shoes.

Moreover, in thus applying heels to satin shoes, or silk shoes or those all white or with white heels, the glue is very liable to spread over onto the delicate surfaces and ruin the shoes.

In my improved construction, I provide an attaching means which saves the delay caused by waiting for glue to dry, which permits o f the omission of glue for shoes or heels having delicate surfaces, which has no tack-heads liable to injure the hose or feet, and which will hold the heels firmly against accidental disconnection.

Referring to the drawings forming part of this specification, Figure 1 is a side sectional view of a shoe of 'the pump style having its heel attached thereto by my improved means. Fig. 2 is a face view of a gage used in accurately locating the heel`l a portion of the under surface of the shoe and of the Specification Vof Letters Patent.

Fig. 6 is 'a side sectional view of a leather heel and its attaching'means.- Fig. 7 lis Ia side-sectional View Cuban heel :to a shoe.` Figs. 8: and 9 are perspective views of said means. Q f

f Considering first the French' heel shown in Fig. 1, the reference numeral 1 designates the shoe upper, 2 the inner sole, Qand'S-'the heel. To the under surface of theinner sole is attached a metal plate 4c by means of tacks or nails 8 driven throughv the holes 5,- 6 into the innerl sole. At the approximatecenter ofthe plate l isa square hole 7 for the pas'- sage of a nail 9, `which is :made similar Vinl cross section but which'tapers 'to a pointg-as 2 illustrated inFig. 4. The head 10' ofu this nail is preferably circular and-comparatively' large in diameter, but thin and fiat. k

By having the'y nail 9 thus made square in cross section, it holds with miichlgreaterftenacity when driven into the wood of which the heels are now most. generally composed and it also cuts its'waymoieY easily intothe small hole which has been drilledfor. itin `.For accurately locatingv the heel on thel sole, I employ a gage 12, shown in Figs 2 and 3, consisting of al Vthin body of metal :or other suitable material, whose edge corresponds in outline to the heel portion of the insole 2, and through 'whose'approxiniate center is a hole 13 approximately fitting the base of the'nail 9, butslightly longer than it is wide. Between this hole and the edge 14; is a transverse slot 15.

This gage is used as follows: It is necessary to bore a hole in the heel 3 at a point to receive the nail 9, and for this purpose the gage is laid upon the heel with the edges of both coinciding, so that the hole can be accurately located by drilling through the hole 13.

The gage is then used for accurately locating the nail 9 on the shoe, this being done by first putting the nail .through the hole 7,

the outline of the heel portion of the sole. The slot 15 being located to leave the small holes 6 of the plate 4 exposed, small nails or tacks are driven through these holes into the shoe sole, after which the gagel can be removed without disturbingthe metal plate.

4After driving small nails through the holes 5 into the sole, by which the plate, and hence the nail, are firmly secured to the shoe, the point of the nailvis introduced in the hole drilled in the heel, and driven forcibly in until sole and heel are snugly together. In doing this it is well to meisten the nail before driving it in, both to render it easier in driving, and to make it hold more securely by means of the rust which Y Will'form thereon. Finally a couple of nails 16 are driven through the overhang 1.7 into the sole, and the task of attaching the heel is practically complete. If still greater security is desired, glue can be applied to the y surfaces before fastening them together.

For leather heels 20, a metal plate is dispensed with, and three nails 9 like that above described, are inserted through the rear part ofthe outerl sole 21 before it is applied to the insole 2, .a gage similar to that above described being employed for correctly locating the `nails both in the heel and outer sole. The two `soles are secured together by tacks or nails in the usual 1nan- Y in Fig. e.

For the attachment of the Cuban heel 25 illustrated in Fig. 7, a metal plate l and the sole is forced down upon the heel, these nail ends are driven into the shoe sole, and so take the place of the nails 16.

IVhat I claim is:

1. The combination with a shoe or the like having an inner sole, of a flatly extended member attached to said inner sole, a taperedy nail projecting from said member and having a thin extended head between said member and inner sole, and a heel penetrated by said nail vand mainly held in place by the same.

2. The combination with a shoe or the like having an inner sole, of a flatly -eX tended member attached to said inner sole, a tapered nail projecting from said member and having a thin extended head between Vsaid member and inner sole, and a heel penetrated by said nail, said nail being .Y

square in cross section.

3. The combination with a shoe or the like, of a metal plate having small nail holes near its edge and a central larger hole, the plate being fastened to the shoesole by suitable devices passing through said small holes, a tapered nail passing through said central hole and having a thin flat head between the plate and shoe-sole, and a heel penetrated by said nail.

Il. The combination with a shoe or the like, having a sole, of a metal plate having small holes near its edge and a central square hole, nails passing through said small holes into the shoe-sole, a nail sharply pyramidal and square in cross section to fit said square hole at its base, the nail having a thin flat extended -head between said plate and sole, and a heel penetrated by said nail and mainly fastened thereby to the shoe.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing invention, I have hereunto set my hand this 7th day of May, 1918.
