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

FIG. 2 is a rear perspective view thereof; and,

FIG. 3 is a bottom view thereof.

The broken lines immediately adjacent to the bottom of the shaded areas represent unclaimed boundaries of the design. The broken line detail on each of the rear four cleat projections is for environmental purposes only and forms 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.
