Shoe dictionary - letter Q
Quarter - In shoes, the rear two side parts of the upper are calledquarters. These surround the slip-in of the shoe and merge into the lacing.
Cross cap - The cross cap is a toe cap that rests on the upper and serves to decorate and reinforce the shoe. It shows a straight finish over the back of the toe, it runs across the toe of the shoe, so to speak. This is where the toe cap gets its name. It can be found, for example, in half brogues (see Brogues).
