The Stickfast Hex (Colloshoo)[1] was a hex that stuck the target's shoes to the ground, causing them to trip if they attempt to move.[1]

Etymology

Like Colloportus, Colloshoo is comprised of the prefix "collo-" deriving from Latin colligo meaning "to bind together" or possibly Greek κολλάω, κολλώ (collo) which means "to glue, stick". The suffix "shoo" is a misspelling of the English noun "shoe".
