Entry from US English dictionary
Definition of shootie in English:
A woman’s ankle-high bootlike shoe.
- There are styles of shooties that are more shoe or more boot, but I bought this pair because it most closely resembles a pair I literally wore to pieces.
- By definition, the upper part of a shootie ends at or near one's ankle, and there's usually (although not always) a substantial heel.
- From shooties that hit right at the ankle to short boots that don't quite reach the calf, there's a bootie in the house for everybody's style.
Late 19th century: blend of shoe and bootie.
