Title (EN) ATHLETIC SHOE
(FR) CHAUSSURE DE SPORT
Abstract:
(EN) An improved golf shoe (10) includes an upper portion (12) and a sole portion (20) having one or more flexible grooves or channels (22, 23, 24, 25) formed laterally to bend or flex about the ball of a user's foot when walking to provide for flexibility. The sole (20) also includes one or more slots (76) laterally formed therethrough to receive corresponding slides (40), each of which have one or more golf spikes (42) formed therein. The slides (40) can easily be removed from the shoe (10) to facilitate changing of spikes (42) when the slide (40) is inserted into the slot (76) and a clamping engagement is formed so as to provide for lateral support when a golfer is swinging a golf club while providing great flexibility when walking.
(FR) Une chaussure (10) de golf améliorée comprend une partie supérieure (12) et une semelle (20) avec un ou plusierus canaux ou rainures flexibles (22, 23, 24, 25) latéralement formés de façon à se courber autour de la plante du pied de l'utilisateur pendant la marche, assurant une plus grande flexibilité. La semelle (20) comprend également une ou plusieurs fentes (76) qui la traversent latéralement afin de recevoir des coulisses correspondantes (40) dans lesquelles sont formés un ou plusieurs crampons de golf (42). On peut aisément enlever les coulisses (40) de la chaussure (10), ce qui facilite le remplacement des crampons (42), lorsque l'on insère la coulisse (40) dans la fente (76). Le serrage est conçu de façon à assurer un support latéral lorsque le golfeur effectue un swing avec la crosse de golf, tout en assurant une plus grande flexibilité pendant la marche.
