I made up the noun form of this onomatopoetic perfectly cromulent word while out for a walk with Alison and Newton:
smick-smack, noun.  A flat, backless rubber sandal secured to the foot by a thong passing between the first two toes, a flip-flop.
So, of course I had to develop a verb form:
smick-smack, verb.  To suddenly reverse one's direction, position, or attitude, to flip-flop.
Example:  The senator smick-smacked on the question of subsidising American smick-smack production.
