Shoe uppers primarily are made of outside will be more fully understood from the follow ing description, when read in conjunction with layers and inside linings. The outside layer is the accompanying drawing, in which: usually grosgrain bound, and the binding is turned.

The shoe upper A is constructed so that a It is, therefore, an object of my invention to 35 foot opening I4 is defined therein, and it may construct a lining wherein the heavy top lines are eliminated. It is another object of my invention to manu facture a pump upper wherein the number of operations in manufacture are reduced.
