A number of 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 Lynn Swann is 6’0” and his weight is 180 pounds, he should be a size 11 in shoe size. Some interesting information about Lynn Swann then and now career, but Yes, we carry Lynn’s shoe size. We go to a 20 in men’s length and 15 in women’s length as well. Now if Lynn 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.
Lynn Swann, nicknamed Swanny by some, has worn many hats during his lifetime, including Pro Football Hall of Fame Wide Receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers to sports broadcaster for ABC sports, to motivational speaker and politician.
Lynn Curtis Swann was born on March 7, 1952, in Alcoa, Tennessee. His father, Willie, was an aircraft maintenance worker and his mother, Mildred worked as a dental hygienist. When Lynn Swann was 2, his family moved to San Mateo, California, where Lynn Swann studied dance – including ballet, modern dance and tap – from the age of four until his senior year in high school. Lynn often says that his mother’s insistence on the dance training is what made him such a good athlete.
At the Catholic all-boys Junipero Serra High School, Lynn Swann also discovered an aptitude for sports, setting the school record for the long jump, playing on the basketball team and setting records on the football team, as both wide reciever and quarterback.
After earning high-school All-America honors, Lynn Swann accepted a scholarship to the University of Southern California (USC). There he played in two Rose Bowls, helped the Trojans win the 1972 national championship, and was elected team captain and most valuable player (MVP) in 1973. He graduated from the USC School of Journalism with a Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations, and was still dancing.
Lynn Swann was selected as an All-American, and was drafted as the 21st pick in the first round by the Pittsburgh Steelers. For nine years, Lynn Swann was a vital player with the Steelers as they won four Super Bowls. He was named to the All-Rookie Team in 1974, Pro Bowl in 1976, 1978, 1979, MVP of Super Bowl X in 1976, and was selected NFL Man of the Year in 1981.
Lynn Swann began his broadcasting career in 1976 while still active with the Pittsburgh Steelers and moved to a full-time broadcasting career with ABC Sports upon his pro-football retirement in January 1983. Lynn Swann has covered plenty of College and Monday Night Football, of course, as well as serving as host, reporter and analyst for events such as the 1984 Summer Olympics and 1988 Winter Games; the Iditarod sled dog race; the Kentucky Derby and Wide World of Sports.
Since 1980, Lynn Swann has been the National Spokesman for Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, as well as serving on their National Board of Directors. Lynn Swann also served as chairman of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports from June 20, 2002 to July 30, 2005, and provided money for over 100 scholarships to the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre School.
In December 2004, Lynn, who resides in the Pittsburgh suburb of Sewickley Heights, Pennsylvania, indicated that he was considering seeking the Republican nomination for Governor of Pennsylvania in the 2006 election. On February 23, 2005, Lynn filed papers with the state elections board stating his intention to run. On the same day he formed a fundraising committee called Team 88 after his Steeler jersey number. On January 4, 2006, Swann formally declared his candidacy for Governor of Pennsylvania.
Lynn’s opponents in the Republican primary scheduled for May 16, 2006 had initially included Jim Panyard, State Senator Jeff Piccola, and former Lieutenant Governor William Scranton, III. After Lynn received the endorsement of the Republican state committee on February 11, 2006, all three opponents quit the race, leaving Swann as the only Republican to have filed by the deadline of March 7, 2006. Swann’s campaign focused mainly on property tax reform. He also supported giving the Pittsburgh Penguins Pittsburgh’s lone slots license so they could build a new arena, free of taxpayer money.
In the end, Swann lost the election with 40% of the vote to incumbent Ed Rendell’s 60%. Had Lynn won, he would have been the first African-American governor of Pennsylvania and only the third African-American elected governor of a state in U.S. history. Of the three African American gubernatorial candidates in 2006, only one (Massachusetts’ Deval Patrick, a Democrat) won; Kenneth Blackwell, a Republican, lost in Ohio.
In 2008, Lynn confirmed that he was considering running for the United State House of Representatives from Pennsylvania’s 4th congressional district against Rep. Jason Altmire. However, Swann did not file for the election and former congresswoman Melissa Hart won the Republican nomination unopposed and then lost to Altmire in the 2008 General Election.
On August 19, 2010, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported that Lynn would be a part of the ownership team for Pittsburgh’s AFL expansion franchise, which will begin play in the spring of 2011. The team’s home field will be the new Consol Energy Center.
We have the best athletic, casual, and fashionable men’s and women’s walking styles in the Orthopedic/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 an adequately fitted width must understand that the shoes 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 6 E width, we’ll have an 8 E 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 an Orthopedic/Therapeutic shoe. And also, keep in mind that a comfort shoe often has very little midsection support. The lack of midsection support allows the feet to move forward and laterally at the same time. These combined movements will increase stress to your feet. Please view all our styles by going to our site dtfootwear.com
We, at DTF, have a deep concern for people with diabetes and their need for properly-fitted footwear. We can provide 15 different widths for Men and Ladies. 4 A (Slender for Ladies), 2 A (Narrow for Ladies), B (Narrow for Men and Medium for Ladies) D ( Medium for Men and Wide for Ladies) 2 E, 3 E, 4 E, 5 E, 6 E, 7 E, 9 E, 10 E, and 14 E in both men and women footwear.

We can provide footwear in “under sizes” – 4 to 6 in length for ladies in wider widths and 5 to 6 in Men-style in wider widths. In addition to being capable of providing these wide widths in fashionable styles of Therapeutic/Comfort footwear, we are offering a FREE 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.
We have a saying in our company … “try us, and you’ll have the experience of walking on a pillow, all day long, with more added support and more room and balance than you have ever had before with any of your shoes.” Guaranteed
