(54) Title (EN): SPORTS SHOE WITH LEG-PIECE HINGED ON THE SHELL
(54) Title (FR): CHAUSSURE DE SPORT COMPRENANT UNE TIGE FIXEE A CHARNIERE SUR LA COQUE

(57) Abstract:
(EN): Sports shoe having a zone (ZE) on the outer side and a zone (ZI) on the inner side relative to the longitudinal centre plane (M), in which the leg-piece (20) is arranged overlapping a part (12) of the shell (10) and this part (12) has, joined to it, adjustable hinging means (52, 53) which define an axis about which the leg-piece (20) is able to perform a flexing movement of controlled amplitude along the centre plane (M). The invention envisages in the overlapping zones (ZE, ZI) means (42, 41; 47) provided on the outer surfaces of the leg-piece (20), allowing selective insertion and subsequent locking of at least one of the said hinging means (52, 53) in any one of the matching seats (33, 34, 35, 36; 34', 36') provided on the said upwardly extending part (12) of the shell (10). The hinging axis is thus able to assume at least two different angular positions (X1, X2, X3, X4) relative to the longitudinal centre plane (M) of the shoe, as required by the user.
(FR): L'invention concerne une chaussure de sport caractérisée en ce qu'elle comprend une zone (ZE) sur son côté extérieur et une zone (ZI) sur son côté intérieur par rapport au plan médian longitudinal (M), en ce que la tige (20) est placée de manière à chevaucher une partie (12) de la coque (10), et en ce que ce des moyens de charnière réglables (52, 53) ont été assemblés à ladite partie (12), qui définissent un axe autour duquel la tige (20) peut exécuter un mouvement de flexion d'amplitude réglée, le long du plan médian (M). L'invention concerne également, dans les zones de chevauchement (ZE, ZI), des moyens (42, 41; 47) montés sur les surfaces extérieures de la tige (20), permettant l'introduction sélective, puis le blocage, d'au moins l'un des moyens de charnière (52, 53) dans l'un quelconque des logements correspondants (33, 34, 35, 36; 37; 34', 36'), ménagés dans ladite partie s'étendant vers le haut (12) de la coque (10). L'axe d'articulation peut ainsi prendre au moins deux positions angulaires différentes (X1, X2, X3, X4) par rapport au plan médian longitudinal de la chaussure, selon les désirs de l'utilisateur.
