Justh's patent "relates to a method of arming the soles of boots and shoes with metallic plates, applied in sections, so as to preserve the flexibility of the soles, and at points where the soles are most subject to wear, the plates being slightly raised above the surface of the sole, so that the space between two adjacent plates will be protected from wear." Plates, stamped out of sheet metal, are specified. (Patent Number 169,006)
