Shoemaker (formerly known as Teague Ring) is an impact structure (or astrobleme), the deeply eroded remnant of a former impact crater, situated in arid central Western Australia, about 100 km north-northeast of Wiluna. It is named in honour of planetary geologist Eugene Shoemaker.

The area contains a number of seasonal salt lakes, the largest being Lake Teague.
