Thread Name: Hob-Nailed Bouchers
Subject: RE: Hob-Nailed Bluchers
Bluchers is the correct answer according to search results at Overture and a definition from
Bartleby.com. Put them both together and bluchers are half boots; so called after Prussian Field-Marshall Gebhard Lebrecht von Blucher (1742-1819). Even L.L.Bean carries some Blucher Moccasins. Thanks everyone for the leads. :-)
