•One of 10 children
•Teammate Michael Cooper, about Magic’s amazing passing ability: “There have been times when he has thrown passes and I wasn’t sure where he was going. Then one of our guys catches the ball and scores, and I run back up the floor convinced that he must’ve thrown it through somebody.”
Legendary rival of Larry Bird

“Magic” Johnson led the Los Angeles Lakers to five national championships in the 1980s, and then abruptly retired from basketball in 1991 upon discovering he had the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
Magic grew up in Lansing, Michigan, and was a standout player at Michigan State University.
I had the pleasure of watching Michigan State play a home game and what a thrill it was to see Magic’s statue in the front of the building and just as thrilling to see his statue in front of the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Magic help leads Michigan State to a national championship in 1979 when he was a sophomore.
He turned pro the next year and spent his entire career with the Lakers, including a couple of comebacks after his retirement and a short stint as a coach (the tail end of the 1993-94 season).
During the 1980s the rivalry between Magic’s Lakers and Larry Bird’s Boston Celtics helped make the NBA a worldwide success.
The Lakers won championships in 1980, ’82, ’85, ’87, and ’88. Magic played in 12 All-Star Games, was the league’s Most Valuable Player three times (1987, ’89 and ’90), and was a member of the USA’s “Dream Team,” gold medalists in the 1992 Olympics (after he’d announced his retirement).
His enthusiasm for basketball and flashy play made him a crowd favorite and one of the most popular faces of the NBA. Now he’s occasionally on TV as a sports analyst and busy running Magic Johnson Enterprises, a collection of business interests that includes movie theaters, restaurants, and fitness centers.
Johnson, at 6′ 9″, was the biggest point guard in the NBA… In his career, he scored 17,707 points, retrieved 6,559 rebounds, and made 10,141 assists…
He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2002. A great person on and off the floor who had a million-dollar smile!
Magic Johnson may wear only a size 14 shoe but we carry lengths 6 sizes beyond that his shoe size.
Now, Magic would require a wider width, we have widths available up to 14 E in our line of shoes for men and women.
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 footwear in “under sizes” – 4 to 6 in length for ladies in wider widths.
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 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
