1. The ornamental design for an upper portion of footwear, as shown and described.


FIG. 1 is a front view of an upper portion of footwear showing my new design;

FIG. 2 is a rear view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a right side view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a left side view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a top view thereof;

FIG. 6 is a bottom view thereof;

FIG. 7 is a top, front, and right side perspective view thereof;

FIG. 8 is a bottom, rear, and left side perspective view thereof;

FIG. 9 is another top, front, and right side perspective view thereof, with the interior tabs pushed in an outward position; and,

FIG. 10 is another top, front, and right side perspective view thereof, in a used condition with an outsole shown in broken lines.

The present article is an upper portion of footwear. As shown in Reference Drawing 1, the footwear includes the upper portion, an insole and an outsole. The upper portion can be changed. The upper portion is joined into the outsole by inserting the insertion pieces of the upper portion into insertion holes of the outsole.

The portions of the design shown in broken lines in FIGS. 1-10 are for the purpose of illustrating the environment only and form no part of the claimed design.

The portions of the design shown in dashed-dotted lines in FIGS. 1-5 and 7-10 are for the purpose of illustrating a boundary between the claimed design and environmental features.
