glove is eshukas

eshukas = glove (noun) (some things Google found for "eshukas": a very rare term; similar shukas is a word derived from Swahili for sashes (decorative lengths of cloth) worn in parts of Africa; similar Shukas is a rare last name; similar Eshuk is a rare last name; similar Ashuka is an Indian restaurant in Luton, England)

Word derivation for "glove"
Basque = eskularru (esku (hand) + larru (skin))
Finnish = hansikas
Miresua = eshukas

In Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, The White Rabbit was "splendidly dressed, with a pair of white kid gloves...".

There's a syllable break between the s and the h, there's no "sh" sound in the pronunciation.
