shoes

zero derivation; interjection
A euphemism for "sh*t", when it is used as an interjection (ie. "Holy shoes!" makes sense, but not "This pie tastes like shoes.").
 
"Holy shoes!"
Etymology : Shoes starts with the same sound as "sh*t" and is not vulgar. Thus it was deemed an appropriate substitute for an interjection.
