BUTTON-HOOK HOLDER FOR SHOES.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 317,451, dated May 5, 1885.
Application filed February 14, 1885. (No model.)
T0 at whom, it may concern.-
Be it known that I, MAMIE F. FREY, of Indianapolis, Marion county, Indiana, have invented a new and Improved Button-Hook Holder for Shoes, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
The object of my invention is to provide a new and improved attachment for shoes, for the purpose of holding the button hook on the shoe.
The invention consists in the combination, with a shoe, of a band on the leg portion of the shoe, an incision, through which the buttonhook can be passed, being provided in the leather below the said band, all as hereinafter fully described, and pointed out in the claim.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
Figure 1 is a side view of a shoe provided with my improved button-hook holder. Fig. 2 shows a modification of the same.
A band, A, is sewed or otherwise secured on the outer side of the leg part of the shoe B, and behind the ankle and below the band a small incision, O, is made. The button-hook D is passed under the band and through the incision, the button-hook passing bet ween the leather and lining, and the eye or ring E of the hook being between the band and leather.
The band A may be made of leather or of elastic material.
In place of securing the band on the shoe, the band may be formed by making two cuts, a, in the leather, as shown in Fig. 2.
The button-hook is held securely, is always at hand, cannot be lost, and does not interfere with walking, jumping, dancing, &c.
Having thus described myinvention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters-Patent-- A shoe provided with a band on the outer surface of the leg portion, and having an incision below the band, substantially asherein shown and described.
MAMIE F. FREY.
