A number of football players don’t want to rival their shoe size? But they well rival their height and weight, and we can determine their shoe size with a standard measurement scale. So Drew Brees (the starting quarterback for the New Orleans Saints) is 6’1” and his weight is 220 pounds, he should be a size 12 in shoe size. Some interesting information about Drew Brees then and now career, but Yes, we carry Drew’s shoe size. We go to a 17 in men’s length and 15 in women’s length as well. Now if Drew needs a wider width – we have up to 14 E widths in our line of shoes, and that is in Men’s and Women’s as well.
Andrew Christopher “Drew” Brees ( born January 15, 1979) is a quarterback for the New Orleans Saints of the National Football League. He was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the second round of the 2001 NFL Draft. He played college football at Purdue.
Drew has been selected to the Pro Bowl five times in his career – with the Chargers in 2004 and the Saints in 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2010. He was named the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year in 2004, the Offensive Player of the Year in 2008, and the MVP of Super Bowl XLIV. He was also selected by voters to appear on the cover of Electronic Arts’ Madden NFL 11. Sports Illustrated named him as its 2010 Sportsman of the Year.
As an infant, Drew had a large birthmark on his right cheek. His parents, Mina and Chip, discussed removing but decided against having an procedure performed.
Football was an integral part of the Brees family culture. Drew’s grandfather, Ray Akins, was a legendary high school coach in the Lone Star State. His mother’s brother, Marty Akins, was the starting quarterback for the University of Texas during the Earl Campbell era. Both of those jobs sounded pretty good to Drew. So while other children were playing with Hot Wheels, he was dreaming about a career as a football player and coach.
Drew excelled at every sport he tried, but he was particularly good at football, baseball and basketball. Drew enrolled at Westlake High School in 1993. As any fan of the “Friday Night Lights” franchise knows, high school football in Texas is serious business, played by kids with serious talent. A number of players in the Chaps’ league went on to star in college and the NFL, including Ladainian Tomlinson. Drew would later play in the same backfield as Tomlinson during an All-Star Game.
Drew won the starting quarterback job for Westlake as a junior in 1995. He was not your prototypical Texas quarterback. Drew stood six feet tall with his helmet on and was so skinny that fans feared he would break in half if tackled too hard. But, oh, that arm. When Drew unleashed a pass, it flew straight and true and hard.
Drew had something else going for him. He was football smart. Not only did he know his opponents inside out, he could make fine adjustments during games when the inevitable unexpected arose. It was hard to fool him once, and impossible to do twice. And God help the team that tipped its defense at the line. Drew was all over that.
The fact that Drew lined up at quarterback for Westlake—and not receiver—may have come as somewhat of a surprise to his parents. They named him after Drew Pearson, the star wideout for the Dallas Cowboys in the 1970s and 1980s.
Drew’s junior campaign was slowed by a knee injury suffered toward the end of the year. It was slow to heal and kept him from attending summer football camps. This was a setback to his future aspirations. In Texas, these camps are crucial, not just to accelerate a player’s skills, but to give college recruiters a closer look at what will be available that fall.
As a senior in 1996, Drew had one of those high school seasons they still talk about in Texas. In his second year as a starter, he led Westlake to a perfect 16–0 record and the state championship. The title game was played in Texas Stadium. Drew paced the Chaps to a 55–15 win over Cooper High and its star, Dominic Rhodes. His final numbers for the season were 3,528 passing yards and 31 touchdowns. In two years with Drew calling signals, the team went 28–0–1.
Drew believed he could continue his success and be a top college quarterback. The top programs, however, did not come calling. Only two—Kentucky and Purdue—offered him an actual scholarship. Picking between the two was easy. The Wildcats had Heisman Trophy candidate Tim Couch. So Purdue it was.
The Boilermakers had fallen on hard time in the 1980s, and their misery continued into the 1990s. In fact, they had just completed their 11th losing season (3-8 in 1996) in 12 tries. Drew would take the helm of a dispirited squad with a culture of losing—not exactly a dream job for a drop-back quarterback.
There was one other problem. Dew had no idea where Purdue was. Initially he thought it was an Ivy League school. He was delighted to find it was part of the Big Ten.
Drew arrived in West Lafayette in 1997. Head coach Joe Tiller introduced him as the school’s hot new quarterback. Fans immediately suspected they were being punked. Drew was so small, so skinny—could this really be the kid with the John Elway arm?
It was hard to tell from his freshman season. Tiller spotted Drew in seven games, but overall he played little, attempting just 43 passes. Purdue, however, had a nice rebound year with Billy Dicken at quarterback. The Boilermakers went 9–3, including a win over Oklahoma State in the Alamo Bowl.
Not that the year went to waste for Drew. Unlike some football-crazed universities, education comes first at Purdue. The campus teams with engineering students, and the libraries are often as crowded as the dining halls. This atmosphere suited Drew just fine. His idea of a wild night was barricading himself in the film room and memorizing every wrinkle of an opponent’s defensive playbook. He was no slouch in the classroom, either.
Being that Drew Brees is a 12 (estimate size) in shoe sizes, and we carry five lengths past his size, we carry up to a 17 in length for men and for women we carry up to 15 in length. I don’t know Drew’s width but if he needs a wider width, “Extra Wide Shoes’ or “Wide Wide Shoes” then we have that for him as well being that we carry up to 14E width, and that is women’s as well.
I need to talk to the men out there. Is your 6E hurting your feet? I have received three calls this week stating that problem. This is why our 9E program has been an unbelievable success!!!! Oh, a note: all 3 of those men love their new 9E width shoes!!
All so what is so important about those FREE 3 sets of inserts. First, we are the only site on the internet that offers 3 sets FREE!!! Second, if your feet hurt on the bottom, it is because the lack of support and this is what these heat moldable customized inserts do for your feet. More foundation and they mold to the plantar(bottom) of your foot and creates that maximum support, balance, and comfort.
WE NOW HAVE 80 NEW STYLES FOR MEN’S, AND WOMEN’S IN FASHION FOOTWEAR added to our website. Also, we have a whole new division of 9E widths for men. We are the only internet site, on the web, to offer FREE 3 sets of inserts for every purchase of a pair of shoes for men and women. These inserts created an added support, balance, customization and added circulation to the foot! The reason for three sets, FREE, is that the material on the upper will compress down over time, and the material loses its effect of creating heat for added circulation benefits. So every four months you replace them, and you have a whole supply for One Year.
The question I get is “what does this have to do with the working environment?” Besides this being an interesting story and you as a read to understand the need of proper length and width for your feet to be 100 percent comfortable. The fewer distractions and the better health, in your life, the more output and outlook you’ll have towards life and especially towards work. Meaning that, you gain better status in your working environment, and your total daily production is not at risk. If your shoe is too large, too tight, too heavy (in weight), no support, wow what a comfort problem!! A SIGNIFICANT FACT, IF YOU HAVE AN EMPLOYEE THAT IS MISFIT IN A PAIR OF SHOES (TO SMALL OR WHATEVER) then you have a miserable employee, and production is the guarantee to be at a lower rate!
Women’s and Men’s Wide Shoes” then we have that for her as well-being that we carry up to 14E width, and that is men’s as well.
Health is the number one priority for any person but especially a person who is diabetic or has foot conditions. We also want to create the appropriate health for your feet, and this will occur by proper footwear and the correct inserts. This following information, you’ll be reading, is what is needed to obtain this perfect health for your feet.
Now, if we can get you in the proper footwear and hopefully you’ll allow these two items to be part of your lifestyle. These things will be working towards this success in keeping the disease out of your feet. We, at dtfootwear.com, can show you the proper footwear and the need to have the proper inserts to maintain this diabetes out of your feet. Footwear as to have fashion (that we have) but the shoe is to control upper support and off-load any problems that you have at the top of your foot. Now, if you have problems, on the bottom of your feet, then it is the job of the properly removable insert to correct these issues. Everybody feels that it is the shoe that solves all the problems for a diabetic or a person who has major foot problems and that are not true. It takes two majors elements to off-loading, corrections, significant added support and develops combined circulation, which needs to keep this disease out of your feet. All diabetic shoes need not have inside seams to create irritation.
Number one item: Proper shoes need to be a Therapeutic/Comfort (please!), not Comfort shoes (that many diabetic supplier furnishes in this business today).
Number two is Customized Heat Moldable Plastazote Insert. Beside excellent support, added off-loading advantages, develops a better balance for walking or running and the added two percent that raise the temperature of the bottom of your feet and produces combined circulation to keep the disease out of your feet. What added pleasures and advantages in just one item. Oh, yes these inserts are provided, by us, FREE when you purchase a pair of shoes – unbelievable!!!!
Please take this blog very serious because if you could spend a day with us – you would not believe the different types of a complication of not having the proper footwear and inserts and not taking care of your feet.
So, how you see the importance of a Diet and the proper footwear make your feet healthy at all times.
We have the best athletic, casual, elegant designs, walking styles of men’s and women’s in the Therapeutic/Comfort line of shoes in the country. We have the length and the widths and where proud of our designs and construction in the world of “Women’s Wide Shoes.” Any person that needs correct width needs to know that the shoes need an extension on the sole of the shoe to adequately house their foot with no hangover with their feet to the shoe. Meaning that every width, with us (in a good percentage of our shoes), have two widths wider at the outsole of the shoe? So if you need a 6E width, we’ll have an 8E bottom for the base of that width. So again no hangover for your feet and a perfect base for your feet to have all the support and balance that is needed.
A Comfort shoe is usually not a Therapeutic shoe, and a Comfort shoe usually has little midsection support. The lack of the Mid-Section support allows your feet to be moving forward and lateral at the same time. These two movements add a great deal more wear and tear on your feet. If you need a view of all our styles, please go to our site dtfootwear.com
