FIG. 1 is a front perspective view of a shoe upper showing my new design;

FIG. 2 is a side view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a rear perspective view thereof; and,

FIG. 4 is a front perspective view of my new design shown in an alternate unclaimed environment.

The solid line extending beyond the shaded area is claimed. The broken lines immediately adjacent to the shaded area define the bounds of the claimed design and form no part thereof. The two eyelet regions within the shaded area that are demarcated by broken lines 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.
