|20130133225||FOOTWEAR ASSEMBLIES HAVING DIAGONALLY OPPOSING REINFORCED INSOLE PORTIONS AND ASSOCIATED METHODS - A footwear assembly has a sole assembly with an insole board having a peripheral edge, a heel portion, a forefoot portion, and an arch portion. The insole board has a lateral side, a medial side, a top surface, and a bottom surface facing away from the top surface. The footwear assembly has an upper with a lower side portion having a lateral forefoot flange, a lateral arch flange, a lateral heel flange, a medial forefoot flange, a medial arch flange, and a medial heel flange. The lateral forefoot flange is stitched to the top surface of the insole board along the forefoot portion, and the lateral arch flange and the lateral heel flange wrap around the peripheral edge along the insole board's lateral side and are attached to the bottom surface at the arch portion and heel portion without being stitched to the insole board's top surface. The medial heel flange is stitched to the top surface of the insole board along the heel portion portion, and the medial arch flange and the medial forefoot flange are wrapped around peripheral edge along the insole board's lateral side and are attached to the bottom surface at the arch portion and forefoot portion without being stitched to the insole board's top surface.||05-30-2013|
|20130061494||FOOTWEAR WITH SOLE ASSEMBLY HAVING MIDSOLE PLATE AND HEEL INSERT AND ASSOCIATED METHODS - Footwear sole assemblies including a midsole plate and a heel insert and associated methods are disclosed herein. In one embodiment, for example, a sole assembly includes an outsole coupled to a midsole plate. The midsole plate can include a first plate portion and a second plate portion spaced apart from one another to define a cavity at a heel portion of the midsole plate. The cavity can be configured to receive an insert. The second plate portion can be proximate to the outsole, and the first plate portion can be spaced apart from the outsole. The first plate portion can include an opening extending through the heel portion. The sole assembly can further include a midsole pad coupled to the midsole plate and configured to contact the insert via the opening.||03-14-2013|
|20120304495||FOOTWEAR HAVING A SOLE ASSEMBLY WITH A CONCAVE CHASSIS FOR A WELT CONSTRUCTION AND ASSOCIATED METHODS - Footwear assemblies with a light weight sole assembly securely attached to an upper and associated methods are described herein. In one embodiment, a footwear assembly includes an upper connected to a light weight sole assembly, wherein the sole assembly has a durable outsole securely attached to a lightweight midsole, and a lightweight cradle style chassis is attached to the midsole. The chassis has a body and sidewalls extending upwardly from the lateral and medial side portions of the body to define a concave structure that receives a portion of the upper therein. At least a portion of the upper is cemented to the chassis, and edge portions of the upper are stitched to the sidewalls of the chassis.||12-06-2012|
