Pronunciation: man olo man ik

Sentence: Carrie had become a Manolomanic. Although she had already blown thousands on her collection of the flimsy, expensive Manolo Blahnik spikes, she could not get enough. She had run off with her boyfriend Cleat, who was a loafer with a cute brogue who had created a sandal when he did a sneaker and became a runner the day of their wedding. He did a flip-flop and decided to go through with the wedding even though he had no sole, was a heel with a loose tongue and had a permanent wedgie. Luckily Carrie was not too Jimmy Choo-sey and they lived happily on a shoestring ever after!

Etymology: Manolo Blahnik (Expensive,Designer shoe name, made more famous on Sex In The City) & Manic (affected with or marked by frenzy or mania uncontrolled by reason).
