English Abstract




A one-piece quarter for a lasted skate boot. It comprises a quarter medial
portion (11), and a quarter lateral portion (13). The quarter medial portion
and lateral portion comprise respectively a foxing medial (12) and lateral
portions (14). The junction line (15) between the lateral and medial portions
defines a symmetry line. A tendon guard (20) is disposed in the upper portion
of the quarter. This tendon guard is preferably sewn to the quarter. The guard
is therefore attached to the quarter, along with the junction line (21).
According to the invention, with a quarter consisting of only one piece, there
is no sewing line along the symmetry line. The skate boot provided with such a
quarter features a stronger heel portion, without any risk of broken sewing
line. It is less expensive to manufacture, with at least one sewing step
eliminated.


French Abstract

L'invention concerne un quartier formé d'une seule pièce pour une chaussure de patin montée. Ce quartier comprend une partie médiane de quartier et une partie latérale de quartier (1). La partie médiane de quartier et la partie latérale (13) comprennent, respectivement, des parties médiane (12) et latérale (14) de bande d'enrobage. La ligne de jonction (15) entre les parties latérale et médiane définit une ligne de symétrie. Un protège-tendon (20) est prévu dans la partie supérieure du quartier. Ce protège-tendon est, de préférence, cousu au quartier. Le protège-tendon est par conséquent fixé au quartier, avec la ligne de jonction (21). Le quartier selon l'invention, composé d'une seule pièce, ne présente plus de ligne de couture le long de la ligne de symétrie. La chaussure de patin pourvue d'un quartier de ce type présente une partie de talon plus résistance, sans risque de rupture de la ligne de couture. Elle est, en outre, moins onéreuse à fabriquer, et il est possible de supprimer au moins une étape de couture.


Note: Claims are shown in the official language in which they were submitted.


1- A skate boot comprising a sole, a front portion for enclosing a wearer's
toes, a rear portion for Enclosing a wearer's heel and ankle, and a medial
and lateral portion for enclosing the sides of a wearer's foot, said rear
portion and said medial and lateral portions comprising:
-a quarter medial portion and a quarter lateral portion integrally connected
together in a one piece construction and being folded at a symmetry line
to form a U-shaped skate boot structure, each said quarter portions
extending upwardly along said symmetry line defining a heel and ankle
portion of said skate boot structure and extending outwardly from said
symmetry line in a narrowing profile for defining both sides of said skate
boot structure; and
- a tendon guard secured to said quarter medial portion and quarter lateral
portion at a junction line in a side-by-side fashion thereby resulting in said
rear portion of said skate boot having an angular profile defined by said
tendon guard and said quarter medial and lateral portions at said junction
line.
2- A skate boot as defined in claim 1 wherein an upper edge of said quarter
medial portion defines with an upper edge of said quarter lateral portion,
an angle which is different than an angle defined by a lower edge of said
tendon guard such that when said tendon guard is secured to said quarter
medial portion and said quarter lateral portion in a side-by-side fashion,
said tendon guard defines an obtuse angle with said quarter medial
portion and quarter lateral portion.
3- A skate boot as defined in claim 2 wherein said angle defined by the upper
edges of said quarter lateral and medial portions is less than 180 degrees
and said angle defined by said lower edge of said tendon guard is at least
180 degrees.

4- A skate boot as defined in claim 2 further comprising a medial foxing
portion and a lateral foxing portion in a lower area of their respective
quarter portions, said foxing portions being sewn together after said
quarter lateral and medial portions has been shaped, to form a curved
heel profile.
5- A skate boot as defined in claim 1 wherein said tendon guard, when
assembled with said U-shaped skate boot structure defines an obtuse
angle at said junction line.
6- A skate boot as defined in claim 2 wherein said angle defined by the upper
edges of said quarter lateral and medial portions is more than 180
degrees and said angle defined by said lower edge of said tendon guard is
less than 180 degrees.
7- A method of fabricating a skate boot comprising the steps of:
-cutting a one-piece element comprising a quarter medial portion, a
quarter lateral portion, a medial foxing portion and a lateral foxing portion,
said quarter medial portion and said quarter lateral portion, together
defining an upper edge of said one-piece element;
-cutting a tendon guard having a lower edge;
-folding said one-piece element at a symmetry line to form a U-shaped
structure;
-sewing said lower edge of said tendon guard to said upper edge of said
one-piece element end to end to form a butt joint at a junction line, such
that said tendon guard defines an obtuse angle with said one-piece
element;
-sewing together said medial foxing portion and lateral foxing portion to
form a curved heel profile.
