Make sure they're thick, quality wool, and consider removing the pom pom and fixing it to your chin :efee612b4b:

what kind of boots do you wear? More power to you guys... I just think I would feel kind of disconnected with the wheel

I got a pair of these, and they've saved my ankles and the area above my ankles many times when things have gotten out of hand. They're comfortable, and I don't have any problem feeling the connection to the wheel.

Question- I am 55 years old, 6ft, 235lbs. I want to learn to ride a EUC. Am I dreaming at this point in life? Through reading I believe I need a 18" wheel. Maybe the King Song 18XL? 

In any case, what do you guys think? Should I go for it? I dont have any physical limitations other then I am less flexible than I once was.

Opinions are welcome even if they tell me to stick with the idea of a Segway X2.

No dreaming necessary. There are plenty of riders like you!

The two things about higher weight riding to consider: if you crash, that weight will come down on your arms etc. And you will lose some range compared to lighter riders. So losing a bit of weight would give you a double bonus, should you need some motivation:)

Or one of the wide tire "16 inch" (more like almost 18) ones: Nikola or 16X. But the MSX/MSP or 18XL are great for you, too.
