Title (EN) FOOTWEAR LACE LOCKING ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE DE SERRAGE DE LACET POUR CHAUSSURE
Abstract:
(EN) This lacing assembly is for use with an article of footwear (10) and includes lower and upper vamp sections (26 and 30) connected by a single continuous lace (36). The lower vamp section (26) includes opposed vamp portions (28) having lace-receiving eyelets (42) including opposed upper end locking eyelets (44). The upper vamp section (30) includes opposed vamp portions (32) having lace receiving eyelets (46) including opposed lower end locking eyelets (48). The locking eyelets (44 and 48) include a locking member (50) having an eyelet opening (54) and a communicating slit (60) which receives the lace (36) in locked relation. The locking eyelets (44 and 48) permit the fit of the lower vamp section (26) to be adjusted selectively and independently of the upper vamp section (30).
