Word of the day: plimsoll

The word of the day is plimsoll:

a canvas shoe with a rubber sole; gym shoe; sneaker. (

"She likes to feel the ground under her feet, and goes without shoes whenever she can, but on the cliffs she endures plimsolls to protect her soles from the granite."

 - M. L. Stedman, The Light Between Oceans (2012)
