Title: SHOES
Abstract:
These shoes (34) comprise a sole (32) and an upper (33). The upper (33) is configured from a fabric with a knit structure and has integrated fiber-reinforced sections (23, 24, 25) at specified locations of the upper (33). The fiber-reinforced sections (23, 24, 25) are float-stitched using multiple float-stitch threads (19). Stretching of the upper to an appropriate degree as a result of being configured from a fabric with a knit structure gives the user's foot an appropriate feeling of fit. Providing integrated fiber-reinforced sections at specified locations of the upper also makes it possible for the fiber-reinforced sections to adequately hold the foot in a specific desired position even when the direction of the force of the foot is changed suddenly while the sole is in contact with the ground. Provided thereby are shoes that have an appropriate degree of holding ability while maintaining good fit.
