quarters

sections of a shoe upper covering (medial, lateral and dorsal aspects of) midfoot, and (medial and lateral aspects of) rearfoot (without impinging on inferior malleolar margins) and heel; heel quarters are reinforced by the heel counter, to enhance midtarsal and subtalar joint function, and prevent mediolateral or anteroposterior rearfoot drift during gait; closeness of fit of the quarters is complemented by the shoe-retaining mechanism; shoe fit is always compromised if quarters have become worn (see Figure 1 and F6)
