French term or phrase: escarpin, trotteurs, godasse, escafignons
and French/English

It is well knowns that the French have many words for shoes. But how to say escarpin, trotteur, godasse or escafignon in English and German? I do not like the word 'pump' in English for escarpin.
Would appreciate your suggestions.

Galoschen, Latschen, Schlappen,


Explanation:
that's typical but not very elegant!

"Escarpin" = Tanzschuh

diese Ausdrücke sind zwar sehr populär aber nicht sehr fein....

Damenschuh, Galoschen, Schlappen...


Explanation:
escarpin is a very common word for a lady's shoe, usually with a high heel. godasse is a slang word for a shoe and it can be translated with Galoschen, Schlappen or, less "slang-ish", with Treter (I think this one is the best solution). In Berlin, "Botten" is also a common slang word for shoes.
