Base data: length.

People’s feet were measured in the old days by lining up one-mon coins

The signature move of the late Giant Baba wrestler was the 16-mon kick. It was a killer technique that could only be executed with big feet. Japanese people in the past used to measure feet by lining up mon coins, and the sizes of tabi socks and shoes were expressed in mon. By the way, 1 mon is 2.4cm, so 16 mon is a whopping 38.4cm. Pretty big feet, eh?
