He is a shoe in for the job. The location for her new store is a shoe in. Their idea for solving the personnel problem is a shoe in. a no brainer a give me goes without saying obvious for certain by Lo'Ki Apr 9, 2007 share this 2. shoe in 6 up, 1 down buy shoe in mugs, tshirts and magnets Also spelt 'shoo in'. The converse of 'shoo away'. Originally referred to a racehorse which only required minimum urging to finish first. Now relates to anything or anybody that is a foregone conclusion to win. He is a shoe in for the new job.
Dear Word Detective: My teenager is telling me of the "new" slang expression he learned while playing basketball: his side being "a shoe-in." He explained that this was a slurred pronunciation of "sure win." I told him that the expression had been around for years, and that I remember it as being popular in horse racing -- and had assumed that it came from 'shoo' -- the gesture of gently waving a stray animal to get it to move in some direction -- and "in" as into the finish. In the 1960s Broadway Musical "Subways are for Sleeping," Paula Prentiss played a beauty contest entrant whose traditional Southern values made her turn down a questionable proposition from one of the judges. She sings that otherwise she would have been "a shoo-in winner from Mississippi." I suspect that there are many earlier uses. Damon Runyon? So the question: is it shoe-in from "sure win" or shoo-in as to shoo the horse over the finish line? -- Will Roberts, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.
Your teenager is correct. All that other stuff you think you remember is just evidence that you're getting old and your brain, consequently, is clunking like a '72 Ford Pinto after ten laps at Le Mans.
Just kidding -- you're absolutely right. "Shoo in," as it is properly spelled, was originally a racetrack term, and was (and still is) applied to a horse expected to easily win a race, and, by extension, to any contestant expected to win an easy victory. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the first use of the term in print dates back to 1928, and the original sense of the term was not as innocent as you'd think. A "shoo in" was originally a horse that was expected to win a race, not by virtue of its speed or endurance, but because the race was fixed. The sardonic "subtext" of the original usage, now lost, was that the designated horse would win even if it were so lackadaisical in its performance that it simply wandered somehow up to the finish line and had to be "shooed in" to victory.
