The Tongue

The shoe tongue is a strip of material located under the laces of a shoe. The tongue sits on the top center part of the shoe. It’s attached to the vamp in front of the shoe and the quarter in the back of the shoe. It protects the top of the foot and prevents laces from rubbing against the foot. The type of material that the tongue is made out of depends on the type of shoe. Athletic shoes have thick, padded tongues to protect the foot while dress shoes often have thin, leather tongues. An extra insert called a tongue pad can be used to correct asymmetrical feet by placing it under the tongue of the smaller foot.
