Any Spurs fans out there? Some interesting facts about David Robinson. Oh Yes, we carry David shoe size in a 17, we go to a 17 in length and 15 in women’s length as well, and if David needs a wider width – we have up to 14 E widths in our line of shoes, and that is for women as well
David Robinson was born August 6, 1965, in Key West, Florida.
Key West, Florida. The second child of Ambrose and Freda Robinson and since David’s father was in the Navy, the family moved many times. After his father retired from the Navy, the family settled in Woodbridge, Virginia. David excelled in school and in most sports except basketball. He was 5 feet, 9 inches tall in junior high school so he tried his hand at basketball, but soon quit. Robinson attended Osbourn Park High School. By his senior year in high school he was 6 feet, 7 inches tall, but he had not played organized basketball. When the coach added the tall senior to the basketball team, Robinson earned all-area and all-district honors but generated little interest among college basketball coaches. Basketball was not his first priority anyway—getting an education was. Robinson scored a 1320 on the SAT. So David decided to attend the U.S. Naval Academy after graduation from high school.
David was widely considered to be the best basketball player in U.S. Naval Academy history. He had grown to 6 ft 9 in , and over the course of his college basketball career he grew to 7 ft 0 in. In David’s final two years, he was a consensus All-American and won college basketball’s two most prestigious player awards, the Naismith and the Wooden Award.
The 1987 NBA Draft took place on June 22, 1987 in New York City, New York. This draft is notable for the selection of two future members of the NBA 50 Greatest Players list, David Robinson and Scottie Pippen, and one player that just missed the list, Reggie Miller. Not a bad glass of 1987. David was selected by the San Antonio Spurs as their first overall pick; however, the Spurs had to wait two years before he could join them because he had to fulfill two years of duty with the Navy.
San Antonio Spur as the
The San Antonio Spurs are an American professional basketball team based in San Antonio, Texas. They are part of the Southwest Division of the Western Conference in the National Basketball Association ….
The Navy excused him from three years of the normal five years of his military commitment following graduation from the Naval Academy. Nonetheless, David continued to serve in a reserve role with the Navy and was regularly featured in recruiting materials for the service. Despite the nickname “Admiral”, David’s actual rank upon fulfilling his service commitment was Lieutenant, Junior Grade.
Lieutenant, Junior Grade
Lieutenant is a junior commissioned officer rank in the United States Navy, the United States Coast Guard, the United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Commissioned Corps, with the pay grade of O-2.Lieutenant, junior grade…
At the Naval Academy, Robinson was an outstanding all-around athlete and chess player.
Although there was speculation that David might choose not to sign with the Spurs and to become a free agent once his Navy commitment ended, Davdid decided in the end to come to San Antonio. Robinson joined the Spurs for the 1989–90 season.
David announced he would retire from basketball after the 2002–03 campaign.
On June 15, 2003, in the finale to Robinson’s career, the Spurs sealed another NBA title with an 88–77 victory over the New Jersey Nets

In addition to his lengthy NBA career, Davi is also remembered for his charitable work.
In 1991, David visited with fifth graders at Gates Elementary School in San Antonio and challenged them to finish school and go to college. He offered a $2,000 scholarship to everyone who did. In 1998, proving even better than his word, Robinson awarded $8,000 to each of those students who had completed his challenge. In perhaps his greatest civic and charitable achievement, David and his wife, Valerie, founded the Carver Academy. In San Antonio, which opened its doors in September 2001. To date, the Robinsons have donated more than $11 million to the school.
In recognition of his outstanding contributions to charity, in March 2003, the NBA renamed its award for outstanding charitable efforts in honor of Robinson. Winners of the NBA’s Community Assist Award receive the David Robinson Plaque, with the inscription “Following the standard set by NBA Legend David Robinson who improved the community piece by piece.” The award is given out monthly by the league to recognize players for their charitable efforts.
In 2008, David Robinson partnered with Daniel Bassichis, formerly of Goldman Sachs and a board member of The Carver Academy, to form Admiral Capital Group. Admiral Capital Group is a private equity firm whose mission is to invest in opportunities that can provide both financial and social returns. David’s primary motivation in starting Admiral Capital is to create a source of additional financial support for The Carver Academy. Admiral has made several investments to date, primarily in the real estate and hospitality industry, including a stake in Centerplate, one of the nation’s premier food services companies. Admiral Capital Group also partnered with Living Cities to form the Admiral Center, a non-profit created to support other athletes and entertainers with their philanthropic initiatives.
An Incredible person!!!
Being that David Robertson is a 17 in shoe sizes, and we carry 0 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 David 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. Again, ALL FOR FREE!!
