Pronunciation: |hɑːd| |ʃɛl|

Sentence: Julie was a tough nut for the craic. She needed to be tough on account of her choice of footwear. The only thing tougher than Julie was Julie's feet, bulletproof they where. Very hardshell feet and a weakness for Gucci shoes or any strapless 6" heel, that's our Julie.

Etymology: Loose association of Hard sell and hard shell...which only makes sense to me, and in the context outlined above.

Pronunciation: san dal us

Sentence: Penny Loafer had no sole. She bought every pair of shoe in sight, whether she could afford them or not. She could not toe the line until she was strapped. Her boyfriend, Spike Oxford, thought she talked with a brogue and was about to give her the boot, as her behaviour became more sandalous. But Penny realized that if she pumped herself up, became less of a sneaker and held her tongue, she could over come this disease that Dr. Scholl specialized in. She was moved by the good doctor's words..."When you leave your footsteps in the sand, make sure they are not the mark of a heel!"

Etymology: Scandalous (giving offense to moral sensibilities and injurious to reputation) & Sandals (a shoe consisting of a sole fastened by straps to the foot)

Pronunciation: stil-let-toe-sis

Sentence: Stilettosis is a chronic condition that afflicts a vast number of women, manifesting at first as a penchant for cute shoes then metastasizing throughout the entire budget to include matching outfits, purses and, in extreme cases, jewelry. Women who show signs of this condition should immediately seek help from their banker. In advanced stages a pursectomy may be needed to remove the credit card.

Etymology: stiletto: (from the Italian word for dagger or switchblade) is an uncomfortable shoe with a high thin heel that women think look sexy but can lead to all kinds of foot and back maladies + osis: (suffix) a chronic or abnormal condition
