Title (EN) FOOTWEAR SECUREMENT SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE MAINTIEN POUR CHAUSSURES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A footwear securement system for closed footwear implements a strap (100) having an X-configuration across the instep of the wearer's foot. The X-configuration instep strap (100) acts to secure the entire circumference of a wearer's foot to the footwear sole. Further, the X-configuration instep strap (100) allows for contraction and expansion of the ankle when the foot's main tendon that travels down the front of the leg and across the instep of the foot is cyclically tightened and loosened during walking or running. The X-strap (100) may optionally travel through a channel (130) located in the sole to allow for further strap adjustment during activity.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un système de maintien pour chaussures destiné à des chaussures fermées, présentant une bride (100) ayant une configuration formant un X en travers du cou-de-pied de la personne portant la chaussure. La bride de cou-de-pied à configuration en X (100) sert à maintenir sur la semelle de la chaussure, toute la circonférence du pieds de la personne portant la chaussure. De plus, la bride de cou-de-pied à configuration en X (100) permet la contraction et l'expansion de la cheville lorsque le tendon principal du pieds, qui se déplace vers le bas de l'avant de la jambe et en travers du cou-de-pied, est tendu et relâché de manière cyclique durant la marche et la course. La bride en X (100) peut éventuellement se déplacer à travers un canal (130) se trouvant dans la semelle afin de permettre le réajustement de la bride durant l'activité.
