FIG. 2 is a left side view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a right side view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a top view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a front view thereof; and,

FIG. 6 is a rear view thereof.

The surface shading on the claimed portion is provided only to indicate the character and/or any contour or curvature of the surfaces. They do not indicate color, texture, markings that actually exist thereon, indicia, graphic representations, surface treatment, or any other ornamentation applied to the article.

The long and short broken lines are boundary lines, which define bounds of the claimed design. These boundaries do not exist in reality in the article embodying the design. It is understood that the claimed design extends to these boundaries but does not include the boundaries. The evenly spaced broken lines showing the rest of the shoe beyond the claimed design and the unshaded regions therein are for environmental purposes only and form no part of the claimed design.
