A manufacturer of seamless felt shoes and slippers, Feick's patent objective "is to stretch the felted shoes or slippers in the process of manufacture, so they will not stretch much, if any more, when they come to be worn." The construction of the last enables it to stretch the felt while wet and easily removed when dried. (Patent Number 154,326)
