Etymology[edit]

From a trademark "Mono", registered in 1932 by Lahden Saapas- ja Lapikasteollisuus O.Y, since 1943 Mono Oy. The name was chosen as result of a contest. The winner justified the name by explaining that it came from Ancient Greek μόνος (mónos, unique), which described the positioning of the skiing shoes of the firm on the market. It didn't probably harm that the founder of the firm was Jussi Mononen.

Noun[edit]

mono

  1. (colloquial) skiing shoe
