    What's up with his shoes. There is no excuse why should be getting blisters from custom shoes.

    I wonder what's the Over / Under for how many replies a "Yao had a boo boo" thread will get.

    More ammunition for him to DUMP REEBOK.

    Reebok sucks. Always have had since they released the Reebok Questions.

    Get on with a real shoe company like Adidas Yao! I'm sure Mac can pull some strings for you.

    Which baffles me even more why adidas hasn't stepped in and done something about Reebok's quality control. Their shoes have been horrible quality and performance-wise for a long time. Looks like they're just content to milk the Reebok brand as a separate entity albeit under the same umbrella.

    Signing with Reebok has been probably Yao's worst business decision ever. I'm not sure I buy it about the blisters, anyway. Seems way more likely to me that his surgically repaired foot was sore. I'm praying this isn't going to be a problem during the season.

    whats the average shelf life of a professional atheletes shoes?? I mean, if you got new shoes chances are you're gonna get blisters, no matter how nice they are...it's just a matter of adressing the problem so it doesnt get worse...

    Maybe since he spent the whole summer in the pool working on conditioning, it made his skin soft or something.

    Tracy struggled with blisters early last season and he's with Adidas. Blisters are prevalent when using a new shoe or when the feet have to get used to the grind of playing a sport again.

    Someone needs to tell Yao to use protection, esp if he's going to keep hugging people like Lauren Jackson.
