One of the most innovative and “best inventions” to come in years, the Vibram Five Fingers Barefoot Shoe was developed with comfort, balance and athletics in mind. The shoes gives you the capability to be in motion in a more natural, flexible and FUN way. Becoming more popular by the day, the original Vibram FiveFingers leads the barefoot running shoes revolution.
The Vibram Five Fingers Bikila is one of the most unique running shoes out in market. Unlike many of the other styles of Five Fingers that Vibram made, the Bikila was designed to be a running shoe. It Features a Dri-Lex® covered 3mm polyurethane insole (thickest under the ball) and a 4mm anatomical pod outsole design that offers more plating protection. Despite the new soles created for protection throughout the concrete jungle, it still conforms to the standard Five Fingers toe design and allows for more freedom in the toe area and a more natural movement.
The Bikilas are the latest design by Vibram Five Finger and one of the more complex. The detailed sole, protective covering and style makes the Bikila’s absolutely one of a kind!
Finding the Right Size Vibram FiveFingers
It’s important when ordering the Vibram FiveFingers Bikila that you get the right size shoe. Vibram uses the European shoe size system so you will need to measure your foot and use this conversion chart to find the right size for you.
|Foot Length (inches)||9 ¾ “||10 “||10 ¼ “||10 ½ “||10 ¾ “||11 “||11 ¼ “||11 ½ “||11 ¾ “||12 “||12 ¼ “|
|Men’s Bikila Size||38||39||40||41||42||43||44||45||46||47||48|
Vibram FiveFingers recommends the following procedure for accurately measuring your feet:
- Stand with your heels flush against a flat vertical wall.
- Slide a ruler under each foot and measure the distance from the wall to the tip of the longest toe.
- Take the longer of the two foot measurements.
- If the the foot length varies more than 1/6 in. it will be difficult to get a precise fit for both feet.
- If your your second toe is more than 1/6 in. longer than your big toe it may be difficult to get a precise fit
Vibram FiveFingers Bikila Men Testimonials
Los Angeles, CA
I really like these Bikila, I saw them about a year ago and I was really interested in buying them right when they came out. So I did and I wasn’t disappointed. I compare them to my KSO’s but they are actually quite different. I want to keep running in a minimalist fashion and with proper form and despite the fact that the shoe has a definite sole just like Nike, Addidas or New Balance, it still allows you and in many ways forces you to run properly. So for me this is probably my favorite Vibram Five Fingers shoe.
I not only like the new look (it looks much less cheap and much more durable), I like the fact that it makes me feel more protected when running on concrete.

|The Best Looking One Yet|
After seeing the old school Vibram Five Finger shoes like the classics, I was happy when the KSO’s came out and even more happy now with these. These shoes look a little close to shoes so they don’t stand out AS MUCH as maybe the classics which look like slippers and doesn’t cover the top. Aside from the looks factor I found the shoe to be very comfortable. They were also very stiff and very easy to put on. These are the best looking one yet out of all the five fingers shoes.
I use these to run while I do more casual walks and outings in my KSOs.
