Vibram Fivefingers Bikila: Preliminary Review from Run Luau Run

Vibram Fivefingers VFF Bikila Blue Green

My friend Matt over at the Run Luau Run blog (@luau on Twitter) got ahold of the only pair of Vibram Fivefingers Bikilas in his size at his local City Sports store yesterday. Matt is almost exclusively a Vibram Fivefingers runner, and has done several full marathons in VFF’s (KSO’s and Treks). Clearly, he couldn’t wait to try out the Bikilas, and you can read his thoughts about his first short run in them here: http://runluaurun.com/2010/05/08/vibram-bikila-product-review/. Sounds like he has a new favorite shoe!

Update 7/09/10: I just put up a post about my own first run in the new Vibram Fivefingers Bikila. Check out my very preliminary Vibram Fivefingers Bikila review here on Runblogger.
