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

FIG. 2 is a side view thereof;

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

FIG. 4 is an enlarged perspective view of the region identified by section lines 4-4 of FIG. 1 and shown in isolation for clarity.

The broken line immediately adjacent to the bottom of the shaded area represents an unclaimed boundary of the design. The even-length broken lines seen in the FIG. 4 view are for purposes of illustrating the boundaries of the enlarged portion of the full claimed design as shown in FIG. 1. These boundaries also 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.
