(FR) CHAUSSURE FORMEE D'UNE TIGE AVEC UNE COUCHE MATRICIELLE
Abstract:
(EN) An article of footwear (10) is disclosed that includes an upper (20) and a sole structure (30). The upper (20) includes a matrix structure (40) that defines a plurality of apertures (43). The apertures (43) may have an elongate configuration to impart differences in the extensibility of the upper (20) in different directions. For example, the matrix layer (40) may be formed from a plurality of segments (41) that cross each other to define the apertures (43). A method of manufacturing the article of footwear (10) is also disclosed.
(FR) L'invention concerne une chaussure comprenant une tige et une structure de semelle. La tige comprend une structure matricielle définissant une pluralité d'ouvertures. Les ouvertures peuvent présenter une configuration allongée conférant des différences d'extensibilité de la tige dans différentes directions. La couche matricielle peut, par exemple, être formée d'une pluralité de segments se croisant pour définir les ouvertures. L'invention concerne également un procédé de fabrication de la chaussure.
