I found an interesting footwear glossary in different languages which confirms my translation:

agree  Olga Buongiorno: Sono due tipi di linguette come dici tu. Ieri ci ho perso tanto tempo x una traduzione che le distinguesse, poi ho desistito. Mi ero fermata a bellow+ tongue. Penso che bellow tongue+tongue sia la soluzione + giusta. Brava
