If your detail object is separate you can deform it with modifiers:

  • Create a plane, subdivide it a bit, make it a bit larger than your detail, give it a Shrinkwrap modifier, don't activate the modifier for the moment:

enter image description here

  • Give a Surface Deform modifier to your detail with the plane as Target, click on the Bind button:

enter image description here

  • Make the Shrinkwrap of the plane visible, the detail will deform, move it towards the shoe so that it sticks:

enter image description here

Or use the Knife Project tool:

  • Create your detail, remove the faces only, choose the front view, select your shoe, switch to Edit mode, Ctrl left click to select the detail:

enter image description here

  • Go into the Mesh panel > Knife Project:

enter image description here

  • It has cut the detail shape on the surface of the shoe:

  • Extrude the selection:
