Philadelphia’s Eve Jihan Jeffers got her first break in the record business the way many rappers go platinum — she walked right through the front door.



If you wear a large size in footwear, you are not alone.

Many well know female celebrities are known to wear a larger size in their footwear.

Here is one: Eve, who wears a size 9 ½ in her footwear.

Here are some interesting facts about this great lady.

We go to a 15 in women’s length and 20 in men’s length as well.

Now if Eve needs wider widths?

We have B to a 14E in our line of shoes and that is in women’s and men’s as well.

Philadelphia’s Eve Jihan Jeffers got her first break in the record business the way many rappers go platinum.

She walked right through the front door.

The story goes something like this:

Some of her friends (who now serve as her managers) hooked up with producer extraordinaire Dr. Dre and arranged an impromptu audition for Eve.

Well, kind of,…they never told him that she was coming.

“Out of nowhere they put the tape on, and I stood up and started rapping, and he was looking at me like, ‘Why is this girl rapping?’,” Recalls Eve.

Liking what he saw after only a few bars, the executive cut the audition short and promised to bring Eve to California to work with the good Dr. Dre.

Eve was not impressed.

“I had been through a lot of auditions,” she admits, “so I thought, ‘If he calls, he calls.

If he don’t, he doesn’t.’

But he called the next day.

I had auditioned for him on a Saturday and that Sunday he called and told me I had to be out there by Friday.”

Eve moved out to L.A. Dr. Dre put her in the studio, where she completed a three songs demo tape.

“Eve of Destruction,” one of the songs from those sessions, wound up on the Bulworth Soundtrack.

Unfortunately, Dr. Dre was still overseeing the growth of his fledgling label, and Eve’s one-year contract with Aftermath expired before she could get to work on her album.

“I believe that everything happens for a reason,” says a pragmatic Eve. ”

The music that I wanted to write at the time wasn’t coming through me.”

While still in L.A., Eve forged a bond with a rising star named DMX, who she met through producer Mail Man, while X was in town promoting his debut album, It’s Dark And Hell Is Hot.

When she moved back to Philly, Eve would come to New York and hang out with the rest of the Ruff Ryder’s camp.

Soon enough, Eve was invited to join Ruff Ryders Records through a trial by fire.

“The way I was signed was in a cipher,” Eve remembers. “

I had to go up against [Ruff Ryders emcees] Drag-On and Infa Red – I was shaking.

If I was wack, Ruff Ryders wouldn’t have signed me.”

The fact that you’re reading this lets you know she wasn’t wack.

If you’re still not convinced, check her sexy yet hardcore appearances on the Roots’ “You Got Me,” the remix to “Ruff Ryders Anthem” from DJ Clue?’s The Professional and BLACKstreet’s “Girlfriend/Boyfriend”

Not to mention her work on Ryde Or Die, the Ruff Ryders’ compilation album.

Her verses are affirmations of self, recognition, and braggadocio rhyme skills.

“I know who I am now and where I wanna take myself and what I wanna show the world,” she says.

As early as third grade, Eve was winning school merit awards for her short stories, plays, and poems.

“I had a real good imagination,” she assesses. In her early teens, she was part of a 5-girl singing group, covering tunes by En Vogue and Color Me Badd.

Around the time Michael Bivin’s ABC came out, the group’s manager suggested they start rapping.

Known as Eve of Destruction, she excelled at rhyming, graduating from cafeteria battles to “stomping all over” Philly’s talent show scene and serving as the opening act for local rap concerts as part of a female emcee duo named EDJP (pronounced “Egypt”).

All this is before the prominence of the female emcee.

“Now, it’s more like rapping is the thing right now,” Eve observes.

“Before, when I was in high school, it really wasn’t big — especially for girls to be rapping.”

“I would really like my stage name to be just Eve,” she says noting that many people refer to her by the moniker she carried while laying her hip-hop foundation.

“Certain people still call me Eve of Destruction.

I don’t mind it ’cause I’m still here — I’m still destroying emcees.”

Health is the number one priority for any person but especially for a person who has diabetes.

Intake of proper food creates better weight control and helps control diabetes.

We also want to create the proper health for your feet, and done by appropriate footwear and the suitable insert.

The following information you’ll be reading 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 items will be working towards this success of keeping the disease out of your feet.

At, we can show you the proper footwear and the need to have adequate inserts to keep this diabetes out of your feet.

Footwear is to have fashion (that we have), but the shoe is to control upper support and off-load any problems you have on the top of your foot.

Are you having problems with the bottom of your feet?

Then, it is the job of the properly removable insert to correct these problems.

Everybody feels that it is the shoe that solves all the problems for a person with diabetes.

Or a person who has significant foot problems.

That is not true.

It takes two majors elements to off-loading, corrections, significant added support, and develops added circulation that 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 Therapeutic/Comfort (please!).

Not Comfort shoes (that many diabetic suppliers furnish in this business today).

Number two is Customized Heat Moldable Plastazote Insert.

Besides generous 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 develop added 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!!!!

A Comfort shoe is usually not an Orthopedic/Therapeutic shoe, and a Comfort shoe usually has very little midsection support.

The lack of 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
