Title (EN) APPARATUSES AND SYSTEMS FOR CLOSURE OF FOOTWEAR

Abstract:
(EN) Methods and apparatuses are provided for closure of footwear. According to an example embodiment, an article of footwear that automatically secures to a user's foot includes a sole and a closure mechanism with a first portion and a second portion. The first portion of the closure mechanism is attached to the sole. The second portion extends away from the sole. Deformation of a surface of the closure mechanism actuates the closure mechanism such that it automatically moves from a first stable position to a second stable position. In the second stable position, the closure mechanism conforms to and applies a force to at least one of an upper surface of the article of footwear and an upper surface of a foot of a user of the article of footwear.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et des appareils de fermeture de chaussure. Selon un mode de réalisation donné à titre d'exemple, un article chaussant qui se fixe automatiquement au pied d'un utilisateur comprend une semelle et un mécanisme de fermeture comportant une première partie et une seconde partie. La première partie du mécanisme de fermeture est attachée à la semelle. La seconde partie s'étend à partir de la semelle. La déformation de la surface du mécanisme de fermeture actionne le mécanisme de fermeture de sorte qu'il se déplace automatiquement d'une première position stable à une seconde position stable. Dans la seconde position stable, le mécanisme de fermeture s'adapte à une surface supérieure de l'article chaussant et/ou à une surface supérieure du pied d'un utilisateur de l'article chaussant et applique une force sur ces surfaces.
