Borrowed from Sranan Tongo pata (shoe), from Portuguese pata (paw, foot), from Vulgar Latin *patta (paw, foot), of Germanic origin. More at patte, from Frankish *patta (“paw, sole of the foot”), from Proto-Germanic *pat-, *paþa- (“to walk, tread, go, step”), of uncertain origin and relation. Possibly from Proto-Indo-European *(s)pent-, *(s)pat- (“path; to walk”), a variant of Proto-Indo-European *pent-, *pat- (“path; to go”).
