Any Dallas Cowboys fans out there? Some interesting information about Michael Irvin. Oh Yes, we carry Michael’s shoe size in a 14, we go to a 17 in length and 15 in women’s length as well, and if Michael needs a wider width – we have up to 14 E widths in our line of shoes, and that is for women as well.
Michael Jerome Irvin (born March 5, 1966) is a former American football player for the Dallas Cowboys, and actor. He is also a former broadcaster for ESPN’s NFL Countdown and currently an analyst for NFL Network. Irvin was self-nicknamed “The Playmaker” due to his penchant for making big plays in big games during his college career. In 2007, he was selected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Irvin is also known as one of “The Triplets” along with Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith. The Triplets highlighted the Dallas Cowboys’ offense in the 1990s that won three Super Bowls.
The 15th of 17 siblings, Irvin was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He first attended Piper High School then went on to become a football star at St. Thomas Aquinas High School and was heavily recruited by the University of Miami, one of the top collegiate football programs in the nation. With the University of Miami, under coach Jimmy Johnson, Michael set school records for career receptions (143), receiving yards (2,423 – later broken by Santana Moss) and touchdown receptions (26). He was part of Miami’s 1987 National Championship team, and made one of the most legendary plays in school history that year, scoring on a 73-yard fourth quarter touchdown pass from Steve Walsh that provided the margin of victory in Miami’s triumph over archrival Florida State, which propelled them into the National Championship Game against the top ranked Oklahoma Sooners in the Orange Bowl.
Even at the time, Michael was known for his exuberance, best displayed by his routine practice of pointing to the sky with both hands after scoring touchdowns. Critics referred to the move as hot-dogging though Michael responded that the gesture was a tribute to his late father. Before a game, his mother would tell him “Say a little prayer, and ask God to be with you…Then go get ’em.” Michael retired the celebration after forgoing his final year of eligibility to declare for the 1988 NFL Draft.
Since leaving the University of Miami, Michael has remained a staunch supporter of the Hurricanes’ football program, often seen on the Miami sideline during big games and giving tutorials to receivers. He has also acted as a mentor off the field to younger Hurricane players over the years.
Michael was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys with the 11th selection in the first round of the 1988 NFL Draft. He was the last first-round draft pick made by the Cowboys under the leadership of long-time general manager Tex Schramm, player personnel director Gil Brandt, and coach Tom Landry (Schramm predicted that Michael would accelerate the Cowboys’ “return to the living”). Michael became the first rookie receiver in Cowboys’ history to start a game in 20 years, in which he caught his first touchdown the same game. Also as a rookie, Michael caught 3 touchdown passes in the Cowboys’ win over Washington, one of only three wins that season and the final win of Tom Landry’s career. He finished his rookie season with 20.4 yards per catch average, which led the NFC.
The Cowboys misfortunes continued the following year as they finished with a 1–15 record, the worst in franchise history while injuries limited Irvin to only six games. But under the strength of new players such as Jay Novacek, Troy Aikman, and Emmitt Smith, the team began to improve. They finished the 1990 season 7–9 and then recorded an 11–5 record in 1991. Irvin was a major reason for their playoff season of 1991, finishing with 93 receptions, an NFL-best 1,523 yards, and 8 touchdowns. He made the All-Pro team that year and was selected to the first of five consecutive Pro Bowls.
From 1991 through 1998, Irvin recorded 1,000-yard seasons in all but one year, racking up impressive 10,265 yards over an eight-year span. Along the way, the Cowboys made four straight appearances in the NFC Championship Game (1992–1995) and captured three Super Bowl titles. His best season was in 1995 when he set Dallas records for receptions (111) and receiving yards (1,603) while also scoring 10 touchdowns and setting an NFL record with 11 games with over 100 yards receiving. He added seven receptions for 100 yards and two touchdowns against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game en route to the Cowboys’ third Super Bowl win in a span of four seasons.
The Cowboys have been in eight Super Bowls; Irvin played in three of them, all of which Dallas won.
Recovered from his collar bone injury, Michael returned to have very solid years in 1997 and 1998. During the fifth game of the 1999 season, Michael, playing wide receiver, was tackled hard at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia by Philadelphia Eagles defensive back Tim Hauck and went head-first into the turf.
Michael was carted off the Philadelphia field on a stretcher as the Philadelphia fans cheered, and the play in Philadelphia proved to be his last. He sustained a non-life-threatening cervical spinal cord injury and was subsequently diagnosed with a narrow spinal column (cervical spinal stenosis), which forced him into early retirement.
Michael finished his career with 750 receptions (27th all-time in the NFL) for 11,904 yards (17th all-time in the NFL) and 65 touchdowns. His 47 100-yard receiving games remains the third most in NFL history, behind Hall of Famers Jerry Rice (65) and Don Maynard (50). Michael was selected to five Pro Bowls (2 more than any other wide receiver in franchise history) and was named the MVP of the 1992 Pro Bowl (following the 1991 season) after catching 8 passes for 125 yards and a touchdown in the NFC’s 21–15 triumph. Irvin was a key playmaker for the Dallas Cowboys that won 6 division titles and three Super Bowls. As part of Dallas’ starting lineup on offense, Irvin was a consistent force to be reckoned with in the regular season, but he also excelled in postseason play where his six career 100-yard receiving days are just two shy of the NFL mark held by Jerry Rice (8). His 87 postseason receptions place him second in NFL playoff history, again behind Rice (151), and his 1,315 postseason receiving yards ranks second only to Rice (2,245), a Hall of Fame inductee.
At 6’2″ and 207 pounds, Irvin was a big, physical receiver who manhandled cornerbacks and often was able to make tough catches in defensive traffic. In part because of Irvin’s ability to push off the defender with such ease, the NFL eventually changed its rules to adjust to wide receivers who emulated Irvin’s physical style.
On August 4, 2007, Irvin was inducted into the Professional Football Hall of Fame, delivering a tearful acceptance speech in which he referenced both his life as a football player and the many mistakes he has made in his life. His speech has been praised by many NFL commentators as heartfelt, including those who had been inclined to dislike him.
Being that Michael Irvin is a 14 in shoe sizes, and we carry 3 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 Michael’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.
“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.
We have the best athletic, casual, dressy 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 a proper fitting width needs to know that the shoes need an extension on the sole of the shoe to properly house their foot with no hangover with their feet to the shoe.

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.

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.
