On this day in 1899, the rubber heel was patented by Humphrey O'Sullivan. As the story goes, Humphrey was working at a printing shop that has a stone floor so he brought in a rubber mat to stand on while working. The problem was, his fellow employees continually "borrowed" his mat. Humphrey decided to cut pieces out from the mat the size of his shoe heels and tacked them to his heels for permanent cushioning. He began selling his rubber heels to local shoe makers and his business began. After starting his O'Sullivan Rubber Company with $7,000, Humphrey sold it just 11 years later for $4 million. The company is still in business more than 100 years later.
