Timothy Theodore Duncan was born on the island of St. Croix. His parents William and Ione also had two daughters, Cheryl, and Tricia. Tim’s childhood dream was to become a swimmer like his older sister Tricia, who swam in the 1988 Seoul Olympics, however after hurricane Hugo destroyed all of the pools on St. Croix in 1989 Tim shifted his focus to basketball. In 1992 Chris King, a recent NBA draftee, and former Wake Forrest student saw Duncan playing at St. Dunstan’s Episcopal High School while visiting St. Croix to promote the NBA in the Caribbean. King convinced Wake Forest coach Dave Odom to recruit Duncan. While at Wake Forest, Tim was named the NCAA National Player of the Year by the Associated Press, he could have left Wake Forest after his junior year to become the number one pick in the NBA draft, but decided instead to complete his degree in psychology, fulfilling a promise he and his sisters made to their mom before she succumbed to Breast Cancer; to earn a college degree (all three have graduated). The San Antonio Spurs choose Tim as the first pick in the 1997 NBA draft. By season end, Tim was voted as Rookie of the Year and was the only rookie selected for the 1998 All-Star game. An NBA championship would follow in his 2nd season (1999). A knee injury crushed Hopes of a repeat. Duncan has been a member of three USA Basketball teams.
He works with various charities including Children’s Bereavement Center of San Antonio, working with children who lost a parent at an early age. He also provides 25 tickets for each home game in a section cleverly titled “Timbuktu,” to children who would be otherwise unable to attend a game.
In St. Croix, Tim is devoted to bringing sports and business opportunities to the island. Duncan continues to play in the number 21 jersey as a power forward for the San Antonio Spurs while endorsing high-profile products.
“Being that Tim Duncan is an 11 in shoe sizes, and we carry 6 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 Tim 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.
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. What is meant 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 very 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.
