Parts of a Dress Shoe

If you have ordered a shoe using our online 3D platform, you are familiar with these terms, as they will appear on the lower left corner of the page as you design your shoe. This article is a written description of the parts that make a dress shoe. Some shoes might not have all of those parts, depending on style. The entire shoe, except the sole, is called the base or the upper. The shoe parts listed below all come together to form the base or upper of the shoe.
