Born on December 5, 1957, in White Plains, NY; son of Arthur (a welder) and Lela (a domestic worker) Art; married Desiree; children: James Arthur Jr., Danielle, Monica A second cousin to jazz piano great Thelonious Monk, James Arthur Monk was born in suburban White Plains, New York, on December 5, 1957. His father, Arthur, a welder, and his mother, Lela, a maid in a Westchester County mansion, instilled in him a strong desire to excel. Attending public schools in White Plains, Art for a time seemed likely to follow in the footsteps of his jazz-playing cousin: he played the tuba and the electric guitar well, and his teachers urged him to pursue a college music scholarship. But Art’s performance on the football field in high school led him down a different path. He started out as a lineman (both offensive and defensive), but he had always admired several pro football wide receivers. So, Art set out to transform himself into an end, going out for the White Plains High School track team and training for such grueling events as the decathlon and the 330-yard hurdles race. On the football team, Art was moved to the position of tight end during his junior year. Although he was far from being a star during high school–he caught only a dozen passes over his whole high school career–Art impressed his coaches with his good grades, positive attitude, and growing talent. On their recommendation he won a football scholarship to Syracuse University.

Some 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 Art Monk is 6’ 3” and his weight is 210 pounds, he should be warning a size 13 ½ in shoe size. Some interesting information about Art Monk then and now career, but Yes, we carry Art’s shoe size. We go to a 17 in men’s length and 15 in women’s length as well. Now if Art 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.

A second cousin to jazz piano great Thelonious Monk, James Arthur Monk was born in suburban White Plains, New York, on December 5, 1957. His father, Arthur, a welder, and his mother, Lela, a maid in a Westchester County mansion, instilled in him a strong desire to excel. Attending public schools in White Plains, Art for a time seemed likely to follow in the footsteps of his jazz-playing cousin: he played the tuba and the electric guitar well, and his teachers urged him to pursue a college music scholarship.

But Art’s performance on the football field in high school led him down a different path. He started out as a lineman (both offensive and defensive), but he had always admired several pro football wide receivers. So, Art set out to transform himself into an end, going out for the White Plains High School track team and training for such grueling events as the decathlon and the 330-yard hurdles race. On the football team, Art was moved to the position of tight end during his junior year. Although he was far from being a star during high school–he caught only a dozen passes over his whole high school career–Art impressed his coaches with his good grades, positive attitude, and growing talent. On their recommendation he won a football scholarship to Syracuse University.

During his four years at Syracuse, Art never missed a game or even a practice. As he had in high school, Art started slowly. In his freshman year he notched only two pass receptions. Determined to prove that he was worth the scholarship he had been given, however, Art embarked on a crash training program of daily ball drills and running. His hard work paid off: by the time he graduated from Syracuse in 1980, Art had set school records with 102 receptions for 1,644 yards gained, 1,140 rushing yards gained (as a running back for several years), and 1,105 yards in return yardage.

Selected by Washington Redskins in first round of 1980 NFL draft; wide receiver with Redskins, 1980-94; set NFL record for most career receptions, 1992; wide receiver, New York Jets, 1994; set record for most consecutive NFL games with at least one pass reception, 1994; wide receiver, Philadelphia Eagles, 1995; re-signed to Redskins and retired, 1997; fourth on all-time list of NFL players with greatest career yards gained; Rich Walker’s Scoreboard Restaurant, Herndon, VA, part owner; founded Cactus Advertising Associates, Chantilly, VA, late 1990s; co-founded Good Samaritan Foundation, Washington, DC.

In 1992 Art Monk of the National Football League’s Washington Redskins set a record for most career pass receptions when he caught his 820th NFL pass in a game against the Denver Broncos. Many football fans felt that the honor couldn’t have been bestowed on a more deserving player, for while many NFL wide receivers rely on sheer speed and innate athletic ability, Art made his mark through persistence and a severe training regimen that observers noticed at every stage of his football career. Another NFL record that Art set in the early 1990s testified to his approach to the game: he caught at least one pass in each of 183 consecutive regular-season contests.

Monk was always a shy man, who spoke of hard work and downplayed expectations for his own career, but in 1984 everything came together and he exceeded his own expectations along with everyone else’s. With 106 pass receptions, he set a new NFL record for a single season, and his 1,372 yards gained marked the first of five seasons in which he exceeded 1,000 yards (along with 1985, 1986, 1989, and 1991). Art was named to the 1985 NFL Pro Bowl squad and received a host of other honors at the season’s end.

A local celebrity in Washington and a record-setter on the field, Art was seemingly lacking only one thing: a star performance in a Super Bowl game. The Redskins were perennial Super Bowl contenders through much of the 1980s, but Art sat out the 1982 Super Bowl with a foot injury, and caught only one pass en route to a losing Redskins effort in the 1983 game. In 1987, when the Redskins defeated the Denver Broncos by a 42-10 score, Art notched only one reception.

By the 1990 season Art and the rest of the Redskins’ squad were struggling. But Art, who had emerged as an unofficial but crucial team leader who set the tone for NFL play, unexpectedly called the team together late in the 1990 season and declared that they all, himself included, could play with more effort and determination. The Redskins rallied to make the playoffs that year, and the following season the team went all the way to the Super Bowl, where they defeated the Buffalo Bills. In that game Art caught seven passes for 113 yards.

In October of 1992 Art broke the all-time NFL record for pass receptions, but the following spring was marked by disappointment and controversy. Art, whose reception total had dropped to 46 the previous year, was benched by the Redskins at the start of the 1993 season. He ended up spending a good deal of time as a backup, and subsequently the 37-year-old Art signed with the New York Jets for the 1994 season. Many Redskins fans and members of the organization thought that the team had treated him shabbily, and felt vindicated when they watched Art, in a Jets uniform, break Steve Largent’s record of 177 consecutive games with at least one pass reception, on the way to his eventual 183. The Redskins’ record that year was dismal.

Art played for the Philadelphia Eagles in 1995, and officially retired in 1997, when he was re-signed by the Redskins so that he could remain with the organization where he had spent most of his professional life. With 12,721 career yards gained, Art was fourth on the NFL’s all-time list, in addition to logging other record-breaking feats. Art Monk had become a strong contender for eventual election to the Professional Football Hall of Fame. In retirement, Art opened an advertising agency, Cactus Advertising Associates, in Chantilly, Virginia. He also co-founded Washington’s Good Samaritan Foundation, a nonprofit job-training organization, and invested in other businesses around the Washington area. Art and his wife Desiree have raised three children and continued to live in suburban Virginia.

 

Being that Art Monk is a 13 ½  (estimate size) in shoe sizes, and we carry 4 ½  lengths pass 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 Art’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

We, at DTF, have grave concern for diabetics and their need for properly fitted footwear. We can provide “wide widths” – 2E to 14E – in both men’s and women’s footwear, and we can help those who have difficulty finding “over sizes” – 11 to 17 in length. We, also, can provide footwear in “under sizes” – 4 to 6 in length. In addition to being capable of providing these full widths in fashionable styles of Therapeutic/Comfort footwear; we are offering a gift to you! With every pair of shoes purchased, we will include up to (3) sets of Customized Heat Moldable Inserts that will provide even more support, added balance and stability every time you wear your shoes.
