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 even-length broken lines represent stitching which forms part of the claimed design. The uneven-length broken lines immediately adjacent to the shaded area define the bounds of the claimed design, and form no part thereof. The uneven-length broken lines showing the remainder of the shoe are for environmental purposes only and form no part of the claimed design.
