Title (EN) A SHOE AND A SOLE THEREFOR
(FR) CHAUSSURE ET SEMELLE POUR CETTE CHAUSSURE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention provides a shoe having an outer sole (16) moulded in rubber that undercuts the arch of the foot on the ground and extends upwards above the midsole level following the contour of the foot in a crescent shape. The undercut section is reinforced with ribs or webs (19) moulded into the arch area bridging the arch in a longitudinal plane. This provides support to the arch when stationary and in moderate usage yet allows progressive flexing to accommodate collapse of the arch during running or walking by partial stretching of the ribs or webs which then resume their original shape when pressure is released.
(FR) L'invention concerne une chaussure munie d'une semelle externe (16) en caoutchouc moulé qui passe sous la voûte plantaire et remonte plus haut que la moitié de la hauteur de la semelle en suivant le contour du pied et en décrivant une forme de croissant. La partie qui passe sous la voûte plantaire est renforcée de nervures ou de côtes (19) moulées qui supportent la voûte plantaire dans un plan longitudinal. Ce système permet de soutenir la voûte à l'arrêt ou pendant une utilisation modérée, mais autorise une flexion progressive pour permettre l'affaissement de la voûte plantaire pendant la marche ou la course grâce à une élongation partielle des nervures ou des côtes, qui reprennent leur forme originale lorque la pression cesse.
