TODAY’S PATENT- SANDAL OR SLIP-ON FOOTWEAR WITH IMPROVED OPTIONAL-USE HEEL STRAP AND RELATED METHODS
The slipper was improved by Stephen Arnold, patented by the USPTO on 14th of April, 2020. It bears the patent number US10617170B1. It falls under the Boot and Shoe Retaining Patents (Class 36/58.5).
Slip-on sandals, like flip-flops are a stylish and cozy style of footwear. However, slip-on sandals are typically not secured to a user’s heel and, as a result, this style of footwear can either make it difficult for a user to make abrupt and complicated footsteps or else easily slip-off during undesirable circumstances. So, some slip-on sandals are provided with an optional-use heel-strap.
In view of the foregoing, an object of this specification is to disclose slip-on footwear with an improved optional-use heel strap. It is a further objective of the invention to provide an optional use heel strap to slip-on footwear without damaging the footwear. It is another objective of this invention to describe footwear with a heel strap that can be used or not used without substantially altering the aesthetic appearance of the footwear. Finally, it is an objective of this invention to highlight slip-on footwear with a concealable heel strap that is heavily padded.
The present invention is comparatively better than a conventional slipper as it retains the aesthetic appearance, doesn’t compromise on comfort and provides an improved optional-use heel strap.
