After learning that, once again, she would not be invited to try out for the United States women’s national basketball team.

Becky announced she would try to claim a roster spot on the Russian national team in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China.

Becky became a Russian citizen in 2008.

The coach of Russia’s team, Igor Grudin, was also the sports director of the CSKA team that Becky played for in Moscow during the WNBA off-season.

The announcement that she would participate in camps for the Russian national team came.

On the same day that it was also announced that national team player (and CSKA teammate of Becky’s) Olga Arteshina had become pregnant.

Becky also signed a three-year extension with the CSKA team at around the same time she was named as a prospect for the national team.

Becky’s decision to play for Russia would prove controversial back in her home country.

In some circles, she was branded an American traitor!

With even than U.S. national basketball coach Anne Donovan questioning her patriotism.

“If you play in this country, live in this country, and you grow up in the heartland and you put on a Russian uniform, you are not a patriotic person in my mind,” that was stated.

Becky responded to this criticism saying, “You don’t know me.

You don’t know what that flag means to me.

You don’t know how I grew up.

The biggest honor in our classroom was who could put up the (American) flag, roll it upright, not let the corners touch the ground.

Obviously, we definitely define patriotism differently.”

She has also stated. “I love my country. I love our national anthem. It absolutely gives me chills sometimes.

I feel honored to be an American, because of what we stand for.”

Becky claimed she only played for Russia to play on the Olympic stage, and it was not a purely financial decision.

Although by obtaining Russian citizenship.

Her salary with CSKA tripled, and she was eligible to make $250,000 for winning a gold medal for Russia.

She received a $150,000 bonus for winning a silver medal.

But helped the Russian team to win the bronze medal, by scoring 22 points against China.

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

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

We want to create the proper health for your feet, and all done with proper footwear and proper inserts.

The following information required to achieve that perfect health dealing with your feet.

Please allow us, to fit you with the proper footwear, and hopefully, with our help, you’ll be working your way toward success in keeping the disease out of your feet.

We, at “Shoes for Diabetic” and “Shoes Diabetic,” know that proper footwear for you and the need to have the proper inserts to keep diabetes out of your feet is essential.

Footwear should be fashionable (and we have that), but the ultimate purpose of the shoe is to control upper support!

To off-load any problems that you have on the top of your foot.

If you are experiencing issues with the bottom of your feet, then it is the job of a proper, removable insert to correct them.

Many people believe that it is the shoe that solves all or most of the problems for people with diabetes or people with significant foot problems, but that is not always the case.

Off-loading requires three elements – corrections, added support, and needed circulation, to keep this disease out of your feet.

Shoes for diabetics should not have inside seams that create irritation.

First of all, the proper shoe needs to be an Orthopedic/Therapeutic/Comfort (please!), not Comfort shoes (which many diabetic suppliers furnish in this business today).

Secondly, Customized Heat Moldable Plastazote Inserts are necessary.

Besides great support, the other advantages of added off-loading will help you develop a better balance for walking or running.

Then, the 2% increase in temperature of the bottom of your feet.

Will aid in developing better circulation to keep the disease out of your feet.

Think of the added pleasures and advantages in just one item.

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:

That every width (in a higher percentage of our shoes) will be two times wider at the outsole of the shoe.

As 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.

Also, be sure to wear proper footwear and use inserts to keep this disease out of your feet.

Shoes for Diabetic” and “Shoes Diabetic” will teach you the many advantages of proper footwear and why Orthopedic/Therapeutic/Comfort shoes are the only way to ensure a successful fit and the comfort you want.

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 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!
