Origin of galoshe

  • From Middle English galoche, galache, galage (meaning shoe), from Old French galoche, perhaps altered from Latin gallica (meaning a Gallic shoe), or from Late Latin calopedia (meaning wooden shoe, or shoe with a wooden sole), from Ancient Greek diminutive of καλόπους (kalopous, “a shoemaker's last; wood + foot”).
