It’s been a while since I posted a “Word of the Week”. I’m sorry! So I’m making it up to you by not only posting a new word, but posting an original, self-created word: shoestruction. Here’s what it’s all about:
shoe · struc · tion [shoo-struck-shun] – noun.
1. knowledge or information imparted concerning shoes, such as industry terms, fashion trends, history, etc.
2. the act or practice of educating about such knowledge or information.
3. Origin: a compound of the words “shoe + instruction” or “shoe + structure + education”, coined by the authors of this blog to refer to our compendium of shoe terms, trend definitions, and more.
I’m going a little above and beyond the average “Word of the Week“ today because I’m trying a little something new. For the next few weeks, I’ll be developing a collection of terms and definitions that we use on Solestruck and Solevoice. Some might call it a glossary, but a born wordsmith like myself finds such a common word insufficient
Anyhoo, keep checking back for future Shoestruction posts from yours truly, and if you have any special requests, send ‘em on over! You can reach me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
