Description



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

FIG. 2 is a side view thereof; and,

FIG. 3 is a rear perspective view thereof.

The broken lines immediately adjacent to the shaded area represent unclaimed boundaries of the design. The broken line showing of the outer perimeters of the three toroid-shaped regions surrounding the lace openings is for environmental purposes only and form no part of the claimed design. The unshaded regions between the inner solid line and the outer broken line of the three toroid-shaped regions 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.
