The brake shoes are critical components in your vehicle's drum brake system. They're steel pieces that are shaped like crescents, and have a resistant surface material covering them. That material is what helps to produce the friction, or resistance, that slows the rotation of your wheels.
The brake shoes are usually placed inside the brake drums, where they push against the drum to create resistance after you've pushed against the brake pedal. However, there are other types of brake shoes that operate slightly differently. For instance, clasp brakes press against the drum's exterior. In a pinch drum brake system, the brake drum is literally pinched between two brake shoes. Lastly, a band drum brake features a flexible belt that wraps around the brake drum.
