Comments about VIBRAM FIVEFINGERS Men's Bikila LS, Black:

I use my Vibrams when I want to either be a total hipster, exercise, hang out, or when I don't have clean socks. It took me a little bit to get used to them. At the beginning, they were a bit itchy but just because I wasn't used to them. Now, I wear them and it is like I am in socks. For some reason, I feel more energetic when I'm in them and it makes it easier for me to save attractive women from imminent danger. It's also nice to be able to wiggle your toes. As of recently, I have stopped crossing my toes which was a habit that tore up my feet. I apply that accomplishment to my recent purchase of these Vibrams. Another thing I like is the immediate attention you get when you wear them. If you are in your house the first time you try them on, be sure to lock the doors because people will sprint in to ask you questions about them. If you are a recluse and hate people, I wouldn't get these. If you are awesome and people love you, get them, and they will love you even more. A negative, I guess they can get a little smelly. Quick fix? Wash 'em.

Comments about VIBRAM FIVEFINGERS Men's Bikila LS, Black:

After suffering from constant leg/foot injuries (plantar fasciitis, shin splints, etc), I was ready to give up running. But, instead I bought a pair of Vibrams and have been pain free for months! Now, I look forward to running because I feel so much lighter and more energized w/ these shoes. Love these shoes!

    Comments about VIBRAM FIVEFINGERS Men's Bikila LS, Black:

    Love the shoes but if you're second toe is longer than you big toe you have to size to it. I also found that I had to about about 1 size to get the proper fit.

        As everyone else, I love my new VFFS. I only wish they had Gore-Tex, so you can wear them in the rain too. But other than that, they are PERFECT. Only thing I would like to point ou is that you really must take it easy first you get them, otherwise they'll kill your legs.

          Comments about VIBRAM FIVEFINGERS Men's Bikila LS, Black:

          After more than 30 years of running but never finding the "right" shoe, I tried the Bikila LS after reading "Born to Run." That was 18 months ago, and I am still surprised by how immediately and completely this shoe changed my run. I run approximately 25 miles per week and cannot recall a single injury since wearing these. Although my pace seems slower and more comfortable, it is much steadier, so my overall times have actually improved. I ran a half two weeks ago in 1:49, when previously it had crept up to 1:52. I wear a men's size 11 and have a narrow foot; the Bikila size 43 fits perfectly and is very comfortable. My only complaint is that the sole seems to wear too quickly, especially considering it is made from Vibram. Admittedly, I run mostly on asphalt, but I'm disappointed I cannot get more than 4 months out of a pair of shoes. I never write product reviews, but I feel I owe this to 5Fingers because they're such a super product. Unfortunately, I will soon have to put them away for a couple of months - running in the dead of a NH winter is just too cold, even with socks!

          These are a solid pair of minimalist sneakers and I use them for hiking and jogging.

          The pinky toes are too large but it does not effect the shoe's use because the other toes fit very well. Definitely measure your foot with the sizing chart before buying online.

          Comments about VIBRAM FIVEFINGERS Men's Bikila LS, Black:

          I have owned these for about 1.5 years now. I wear them regularly around town when its warm, I workout at the gym in them 3 times a week, and I run in them on the trail and road 4 times a week. It took a while for my feet to adjust especially running on the road. But now I can do a 5 mile run comfortably. I do easy hikes and trail runs in them, but they do not have a very aggressive sole for this. I am not overly impressed with the velcro tabs to tame the extra laces, one has ripped off from use. I wish there was a way to tuck the laces into something. Overall these have been a great shoe and I am hoping to get the rest of the summer out of them. I am starting to get a hole on the inside of the heel and the forefoot traction is getting pretty worn down. These have a lot of miles on them and definitely outlasted my expectations.
