There is a specific term to describe this hand-sized detachable leather flap that attaches on top of golf shoes with same laces that close the shoe. The original purpose of flap was probably to protect shoes at lace opening. Now, it’s used more as a classic touch on saddle shoes, whether for golf or street “school girl” shoes. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT FLAP IS CALLED???
