gzb has {wĭm-plâŋ} "bag-foot" for sock, {kyl-plâŋ} "box-foot" for
shoe.  I suppose "glove" would be {wĭm-mâŋ} "bag-hand" but I don't
think I've had occasion to use it yet (it's only rarely we get weather
cold enough for gloves around here).  And {wĭm-tâlm} would be a ski
mask, which I'm even less likely to ever wear, but might as well add
to the lexicon because why not?
