- n. Same as galoche.
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 ("a shoemaker's last; wood + foot").
