FIG. 1 is a front perspective view of a portion of a shoe
upper showing my new design;

The broken line eyelets in the figures represent an unclaimed
portion of the design. The uneven broken line bounding the
shaded area of the design in the figures represents an
unclaimed boundary of the design. The heavy even broken

line showing of the remainder of the shoe is for illustrative
purposes only and forms no part of the claimed design.
