THE FOOT PROBLEM SOLVED
Dr. Sawyer's Cushion Sole Shoes
NEW SCIENTIFIC CONSTRUCTION
A man whose every step brings a twinge of pain is a cripple.
Rheumatism and gout wrongly receive most of the blame for
this pain in the foot. Rheumatism is still a puzzle, both to the laity and to the medical profession. Rheuma
tism of the foot is commonly located in the ankle, joint. But the cause of distress is, in ninety per cent of cases,
nothing but poor-fitting and faulty constructed shoes. With the DR. SAWYER CUSHION SOLE SHOE
the feet are kept at a natural temperature. The cushion conforms to and fills every curve, of the foot, distributes
the weight evenly and admits of perfect blood circulation.

The shoe is welted to the felt, doing away with leather inner solemaking this shoe a flexible solp shoe. This felt is covered with a specially prepared Crorae leather sock lining, which is perspiration
proof, and the only lining of its kind used in any shoe. The felt inner sole is made from unwashed Australian wool felt, specially prepared and nonabsorbent to dampness, also a nonconductor of
heat, cold, and electricity, and will not creep up under the toes. Next to the felt insole is cork one-eighth of an inch thick. Cork is also nonabsorbent of moisture, nonconductor of electridty, heat and
cold, and is held in place by shellac, which makes this to all practical purposes a waterproof shoe.

FOOT COMFORT A
With the ordinary shoe the friction of the
foot on the hard inner sole is the cause of many
foot ailments; corns, bunions, enlarged joints,

and in winter dampness and cold result in rheu
matism, neuralgia, &c. DR. SAWYER CUSH

afflictions. The fiber cushion is comfortable to
both feet, and is built into and becomes a part
of the shoe and is a nonconductor of either
heat or cold. DR. SAWYER CUSHION SOLE
SHOES are made in all leathers, but the best
selling leathers are kangaroo, vici kid, and gun
metal calf. Single sole or double sole can be
had in every styje.
