AMEN!  I'm 6'3" with size 14's and let's just say I have a typical ham radio 
I went with 45G for my 70 footer for a few good reasons, this being number one. 
my huge carcass is going to be working at that level for that long, I want 
REALLY strong under me.  I knew my feet didn't fit in 25G so my ability to work 
up there
for long hours was zilch.  Thank God I made that choice!  I've spent a LOT of 
time at
the top.
