The broken lines immediately adjacent to the shaded area represent unclaimed boundaries of the design. The unshaded regions surrounded by a broken line perimeter and the unshaded regions between the broken line shapes and the adjacent solid line claim boundary form no part of the claimed design. The broken lines showing the remainder of the shoe are for environmental purposes only and form no part of the claimed design.
