Shoohoh: /shoo-hoh/ It started innocently enough at her high school prom, when Melissa's mother loaned her a pair of pink pumps. Two inches may not seem like much, but the height was exhilarating, and immediately addictive. Before too long she couldn’t even go to the beach without wearing platform sandals. And then she jumped up to hardcore. Now she’s a total shoehoh, wobbling around the shopping mall in six-inch stilettos, begging for her next fix. Etymology: shoe + ho (whore) Created by: wordmeister.
