In the book, George is a small man who is very quick and defined.  Everything about is is sharp and strong.  By contrast, Lennie is big and shapeless.  He walks heavily where George is quick.To me, this says a lot about their characters.  George is sharp and strong and aggressive.  He is the one who has a plan, who is always controlling things and moving forward.  By contrast, Lennie lets other people shape him.  He reacts to what George is doing (and what others do) rather than acting for himself.In this way, Steinbeck really uses the two mens’ physiques as metaphors for what they are like personally.
