Today’s Patent- Basketball Shoe
On 12th June, 1944, John T Riddle was awarded with a Patent for his invention “Basketball Shoe”. This patent was granted by USPTO, with registration number US1962526.
As a reason of which, today on 12th June, 2018, we are remembering one of the early Patents on Basketball Shoe, by making it our “Today’s Patent”. This patent talks about first “Basketball specific shoe”. The patent describes the improvement in the earlier patents by simply describing affixation of a rubber sole to a leather sole. Which reduces slipping and can be used under stressful usage, like basketball. The Company owned by Riddle, makes sports related athletic gear, but does not make basketball shoe anymore.
