Shoohoh

Created by: wordmeister

Pronunciation: shoo-hoh

Sentence: 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)

I wonder if she can even shoewhoren in to those old pumps.

I've done a bit of shoewhoren myself, and it is a bit tricky when you've got six inchers on...
