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 Women’s Vibram Five Fingers Bikila is a unique running shoe that has a unique colorful style.
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 Bikila
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)||81â„8 “||83â„8 “||85â„8 “||87â„8 “||91â„8 “||93â„8 “||95â„8 “||97â„8 “||101â„8 “||103â„8 “|
|Women’s Bikila Size||NA||34||35||36||37||38||39||40||41||42|
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 Women Testimonials
|Kerry S.,Culver City, CA||Colorfully Wonderful!These shoes are very comfortable and seem much more durable than the sprints I initially got. My friend’s thought the colors were a bit too bright but I thought that they were colorfully wonderful! It was very hard for me to find the shoes so I did feel lucky that I got the shoes and I am happy to say I am not disappointed.
If you are a fan of the KSO’s or sprint I would have to say that the Bikila’s are a must buy. For those that still have not jumped aboard the barefoot bandwagon, you should look into it. It’s not for everybody, some of my friends have had problems when trying to adjust to the Vibram FiveFingers style of shoe and have reverted back to running in normal shoes.
I personally think that where you foot strike does make a big difference despite those who say that many of the top marathon runners of the world also strike with their heels first. Anyway, I hope Vibram keeps improving their line of shoes. Oh yea, make sure you don’t buy fake Vibrams, I’ve seen some out there and I just think it’s sad.
|Helena, Newport Beach, CA||Excellent Running Shoe.The Bikilas are a bit colorful but if you don’t mind wearing the other Vibrams like the KSO’s then i don’t think you will mind wearing the Bikila’s and in fact may enjoy the attention it gets you. When I first put on the shoe I felt it was comfortable and way more “advanced” than the other Vibrams. I’m not sure if “advanced” is the right word but it does seem more solid than the other versions of Vibram. This may be due to the fact that despite what many people think, the previous versions such as the Vibram Five Fingers Classic and KSO’s were not made for actual “running”. I think the Bikila’s were created particularly for running.
Bottom line is it’s an excellent running shoe as well as training shoe and I thoroughly enjoy wearing it and running in them.
