As such, NBA Head Coaches wear Allen Edmonds both on and off the court, and serve as spokespersons for the brand’s Big and Tall product offerings.

“Allen Edmonds is well regarded for offering a wide range of sizes and widths to fit virtually any” says Paul Grangaard, CEO at Allen Edmonds. “In addition to our large size and width offering, our shoes are constructed on a number of different ‘lasts’ so it’s very easy for a man to find an Allen Edmonds shoe that fits his specific foot shape. As the Great American Shoe Company we are pleased to be partnering with the Head Coaches of one of the Great American Games.”

As a part of the partnership, the NBCA Head Coaches will serve as spokespersons for the Allen Edmonds’ Big and Small product offerings. Allen Edmonds shoes come in lengths from 6 to 16, and widths of AAA, the narrowest width, to EEE, the widest width.

Specific shoes can be made in even larger sizes by request.

“We are very pleased to be partnering with Allen Edmonds, a great American company, to fit our coaches” says Michael Goldberg, Executive Director at the NBCA. “Many NBCA members require larger, longer and wider shoes. Because the shoes are made right here in the USA, we can special order the larger sized shoes and have them on our Coaches’ feet very quickly. Allen Edmonds has been able to find the perfect fit for each of our needs.”

Eventually each Head Coach’s shoe selections will be displayed in Allen Edmonds’ 38 company owned retail stores and promoted online.
