The brake shoe is part of a brake system which carries a brake lining in a drum brake for an automobile or a brake block in a train brake and a bicycle brake.
The brake shoe carries the brake lining, which is riveted or glued to the shoe. When the brake is applied, the shoe moves and presses the pad against the inside of the drum. The friction between the lining and the rollers provides the braking force. Energy dissipates as heat.
Modern cars use full disc brakes, or front discs, rear drums. The advantage of discs is that they can dissipate heat more quickly than drums and therefore have less risk of overheating.
The reason for keeping the drum at rear is that the drum is more effective than the disc that is the parking brake.
Brake shoes are used in drum brake systems, with the lined shoe pressing against the inside of the drum to stop it moving. The drum is attached to the wheel, making it a pretty clever way of getting the car to stop.
Brakes are something which can't be neglected - they're by far the least painful way of stopping from speed, so you need to make sure they're kept in good working order.
