Collar

The collar is the top rim portion of the shoe.  In athletic shoes the collar is referred to as the padded part of the topline.  Depending on

the height, collars can be functionally supportive and padded for comfort and protection against lateral movements.  Some collars assist in the prevention of ankle injuries.
