The Heel Cap
Also called the heel counter or backstay.
The heel counter refers to an extra insert at the back of the shoe. It is a stiff piece of material that helps to maintain the shape of the shoe. A good heel cap will straighten the foot during walking to distribute weight equally across the bottom of the foot. With a good heel cap, the foot will be anchored to the sole of the shoe.
