Brake Shoes are only used inside brake drum systems and perform a similar function to brake pads. They are used to carry the brake lining into the brake drum. When the brake pedal is depressed the pressure on the brake line causes the brake shoe to move outwards against the brake drum, creating friction between the two and leading to car slowing. Brake shoes need to be replaced less frequently than the more common brake pad and rotor systems and are often sturdy enough to last several thousand kilometres. However, despite this they should be checked and serviced regularly, and their condition monitored if braking begins to act differently.
