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

FIG. 3 is a side view thereof.

The uneven broken line immediately adjacent to the shaded area represents an unclaimed boundary of the design. The broken line showing of the remainder of the shoe is for illustrative purposes only and forms no part of the claimed design.
