Films versus books [In reply to] Can't Post

The person writing the article notes the Hobbit feet in the films... but the films are not made by Tolkien obviously. And Hobbits in general did not have overlarge feet, as you say.

The Harfoots were said to be beardless and bootless, with neat and nimble hands and feet, while the Stoors were broader, heavier in build -- and their feet and hands were larger (I'm pretty sure it's also noted that the Stoors sometimes wore boots in certain conditions).

So the Stoors have large-er feet and hands, meaning larger than the Harfoots, but their bodies are described as broader and heavier in build as well, so I see no great reason to think that even the Stoors had notably large hands and feet in proportion to their own bodies.
