shoe is okeno (revisited)

okeno = shoe (noun) (some things Google found for "okeno": an uncommon to unusual term; Okeno Sushi restaurant in Shirley, NY; name of a harbor city in the Pathfinder fantasy roleplaying game universe; an unusual to rare last name that can be Kenyan or can be Japanese; a rare first name)

Word derivation for "shoe":
Basque = oinetako, Finnish = kenkä
Miresua = okeno

This is a revision. My previous Miresua conlang word for shoe was oikenä. I made this modification to avoid ending this word in -Ä.

Another word for shoe in Basque is zapata, which is the word for shoe in Spanish. In Basque oin means foot.

The plural of shoe, shoes, appears seven times in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the first occurrence is in this quote:
"Good-bye, feet!" (for when she looked down at her feet, they seemed to be almost out of sight, they were getting so far off). "Oh, my poor little feet, I wonder who will put on your shoes and stockings for you now, dears?"
This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for shoe is now okenko.
