The third tallest NBA player at 7’ 6” (actually tied with Yao Ming) is Shawn Bradley who played 12 years in the NBA. While we don’t carry Shawn’s shoe size of 22 (out of our size bracket), we do provide lengths up to and including a17. Women’s sizes are available up to and including a 15 length. Now if Shawn did wear a 17, and required a wider width, our “Extra Wide Shoes’ or “Wide Wide Shoes” are available in widths up to 14E. A 14E width is also available in women’s styles in our line of shoes.
Shawn Paul Bradley, born March 22, 1972 in Landstuhl, West Germany (now Germany), is an American 7’ 6” former professional basketball player who played center for the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA. Bradley grew up in Castle Dale, Utah, in the United States and has dual citizenship. Bradley competed internationally for Germany; he and Dallas teammate Dirk Nowitzki were members of the German national basketball team that finished third (ahead of the USA) at the 2002 FIBA World Championship in Indianapolis.
Bradley was highly regarded as an NBA prospect after playing well for one season with Brigham Young University. In the 1993 NBA Draft, he was the second pick overall. During his first years with the Philadelphia 76ers, Bradley established himself as a decent pivot, sporting a nice touch around the basket (averaging 10-12 points per game) and intimidating shot-blocking abilities, denying an average 3.5 shots per game.
However, the rail-thin Bradley had a tough time against the physical centers and forwards of his generation and had a reputation for being inconsistent and not aggressive when it came to defense. He was also known for getting into foul trouble (at times, he averaged over 4 fouls per game at just under 30 minutes of playing time).
After a couple of solid years with the Dallas Mavericks, Bradley developed knee problems, which caused him to lose some of his athletic ability. His production steadily declined, and after the Mavericks acquired Erick Dampier in 2004, Bradley found himself on the bench most of the time. He announced his retirement from professional basketball in June 2005. He now coaches high school basketball in Lucas, Texas.
We have the best athletic, casual, and fashionable men’s and women’s walking styles in the Therapeutic/Comfort line of shoes in the country. We have the lengths and the hard-to-find widths. And we’re proud of our designs and construction in the world of “Women’s Wide Shoes.” Anyone who requires a proper fitting width must understand that the shoe must have an extension on the sole to properly contain their foot without the foot hanging over the shoe. What that means is that every width (in a higher percentage of our shoes) will be two times wider at the outsole of the shoe. For example, if you require a 6E width, we’ll have an 8E bottom for the base of that width. Therefore, no overhang of your feet and a perfect base to provide all the necessary support and balance.
A comfort shoe is not always a therapeutic shoe. Also, keep in mind that a comfort shoe often has very little midsection support. The lack of the midsection support allows the feet to move forward and laterally at the same time. These combined movements will increase stress to your feet.
