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:

Steffi Graf, who wears a size 11 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 Steffi needs a wider width – we have B to a 14E in our line of shoes.

That is in women’s and men’s as well.

Steffi Graf started playing tennis at age 3, coached by her father, Peter.

Under the area’s tennis program, as the best girl, she would usually play against the worst boy — who was usually Boris Becker.

After winning the German and European Juniors, she turned pro on 18 October 1982.

The next day, she lost to Tracy Austin, who was less-than-impressed, telling reporters that there were “hundreds of girls” like Graf back in the States.

Peter kept a tight rein on Steffi’s career to ensure that she wouldn’t “burn out” as she climbed up the rankings.

She finally won her first title on 13 April 1986, defeating Chris Evert at the Family Circle Cup.

She would win 107 WTA tournaments, including 22 Majors.

In 1988, she joined Don Budge, Rod Laver, Maureen Connolly, and Margaret Court as the only players in tennis history to win a calendar-year Grand Slam, and the only one to win it on four different surfaces.

She found herself at the center of a near-tragedy on 30 April 1993.

As a then-arch rival, Monica Seles was resting during a changeover at the Hamburg Open.

A man made his way through the stands and plunged a knife into her back.

At first, it was thought the attack was prompted by the conflict in Seles’s Yugoslavia.

But it turned out Guenter Parche was a Graf fan and reasoned that if he took Seles out, Graf would regain the #1 ranking.

The attack reverberated across sports.

It also changed the course of tennis history.

Seles was off the court for 27 months, and never regained her dominating form.

Graf visited Seles in the hospital but didn’t comment publicly about the incident until 2004.

Graf retired on 13 August 1999 after beating Martina Hingis at Roland Garros and losing to Lindsay Davenport at Wimbledon.

By this time, she was dating Andre Agassi, who also won Roland Garros, but was a finalist at Wimbledon that year.

With only their mothers as witnesses, they were married on 22 October 2001 at his Las Vegas home.

Their son, Jaden Gil, was born four days later. Their daughter, Jaz Elle, was born on 3 October 2003.

Famous for her killer instinct and business-like approach, at times she displayed a sense of humor.

During a tight 1995 Wimbledon match against Kimiko Date, she was serving when a fan yelled out “Steffi!”

Everyone, including Steffi, burst out laughing.

Composing herself, she readied to serve when the fan shouted “Steffi!

Will you marry me?”

The stadium burst into peals of laughter and play was delayed for a couple of minutes.

Steffi readied to serve, tossed the ball, caught it, turned, and yelled to the fan: “How much money do you have?”

Graf lost the set but won the match to face (and defeat) Arantxa Sánchez Vicario for the title.

Personal Quotes

“Sometimes I wish I could have been a bit more relaxed. But then I wouldn’t have been the same player.”

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.

That means that every width (in a higher percentage of our shoes).

Will be two times wider at the shoe’s outsole.

For example, if you require a 6 E width, we’ll have an 8 E bottom for that width base.

Therefore, no overhang of your feet and a perfect base 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.

At DTF, we 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).

Then, 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.

Dtfootwear can help those who have difficulty finding “oversizes” – up to 15 in length for Women and up to 20 in length for Men.

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 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.

What does it mean, to dtfootwear, to have as many people in the world to have Healthy Happy Feet?

 Well, here is a critical concept that we believe in immensely:

 To see as many people as possible have “HEALTH HAPPY FEET” forever all over the world.

I still own a Medical Company (DTF CO) that handles footwear for the diabetics coast to coast, and in 18 years, we have had the pleasure of working with over 1/2 million patients.

Our website was born by having the nurses (in over 850 facilities) asking for the same footwear and inserts for themself as well.

The nurses – styles, for ladies and styles, for men – heard and seen the smiles, the faces of happy clients, the God Bless you, etc. all the time, and we have had a 98 percent satisfaction rating with our service and products.

This video explains our reasons for Healthy Happy Feet as well.
