Major Update! City Sports just got the KSO Remix and Smartwool Classics in! Read more.
The Shoe Mart is based out of Norwalk, Connecticut, and has been selling shoes since 1956. They carry the full line of Vibram Five Fingers (Depending on inventory), offer free shipping, and ship internationally and accept Paypal! As always, all stores listed on BirthdayShoes.com are checked out — you can be confident you are getting the real thing and not fake five fingers.
So without further ado here is a photo gallery of the Fall 2010 Vibram Five Fingers line-up.

Tripp, from Austin, was previously seen here on BirthdayShoes when he first got his Vibram Five Fingers Classics, then later when he ran a 5k in them. Recently, Tripp purchased a pair of Bikilas from City Sports and sent us a nice comparison to his Classics. Here it is, along with with an Achilles tendon mod he made to his Classics:

I've just been notified that a new color of the Bikila Vibram Five Fingers running shoe has been released — for women. The above blue (teal?) and grey Vibram Five Fingers Bikila is now "out" and available for purchase from CitySports!
Though CitySports just got stocked up on this color, given the popularity of the Bikila — and the fact that this color combo looks great (In my humble opinion, of course!), I doubt these will last — at least not until more shipments go out!
The sizes available (as of right now) are 37 - 42 and the Bikila retails at just below $100. As usual, you can get free shipping on these via using the coupon code BIRTHDAY.

NBC's Today Show aired a segment this morning about the latest fads in fitness footwear; specifically, the growing number of shoes that promise to tone up your lower body simply by wearing them and walking around.
For once, I'm not talking about Vibram Five Fingers, but rather shoes like the Reebok EasyTones and Skecher Shape-Ups. That said, I'm happy to report that the Today Show does feature barefoot running and Vibram Five Fingers, too. Just watch the segment:

We noticed a cool picture (above) he posted on the BirthdayShoes Facebook page, and had to find out more. Here are a few more pics and what Jake shared with us about his hike:
