Any word yet on when the Spring 2010 line goes on sale? I'm starting to think my KSOs need replacing and am wondering if I can hold out 'til the Bikilas are available.

How long have you had your KSOs?

have had them since the summer. they're holding up fine under pretty regular usage, but since I've been wearing them for both active and casual purposes, I'm thinking an additional pair would be dedicated to running/exercise.
Rather than "replacing," I should say "supplementing."

Does the forum community think March would be a ballpark safe guess for the availability of the Bikilas? That's when the Terra Plana Evos are coming out and I'm sure Vibram is keenly aware of the impending competition...

I think late February or something if when they'll be shipping (impression I got from GSSGear), but not definate about that. March sounds like a good guess, but who knows.  Huh

If it's February, my personal guess is that it would be like going to buy a video-game at 11:59 on a Thursday. I'm thinking it will be March before anyone on here had a pair.

^^ Except maybe me, because I'll be unpacking mine the moment the shipment rolls off the truck! Cheesy

I heard February, too. There's a store that carries them right across from my work and I plan on stopping by every day that month.  Smiley

After 6mo and ~500mi my KSO's finally wore through under the balls of my feet.  A problem which the Bikila's seem to solve by adding a bit more padding exactly there.  Can't wait for them to come out!  Wish I could pre-order.

Yeah, given what appears to be the local nature of that wear, I'd be tempted to patch that and squeeze a few more miles out of them.

Or at least keep them for kicking around...

Both the Bikilas and the Speeds are available for preorder in the UK from here:

http://www.purefootwear.co.uk/find.asp?cid=hyp8pzs2hk6dznyl9qml462q3y8dcd62&manufacturer_id=vibram_fivefingers

The site says March delivery, so I guess that's when they're available. I think they're new pictures too.
For everyone in the UK, this site is good - it's where I got my KSOs from (I'm about to test their returns policy though, aargh)!

As an aside, I just noticed that the Trek is more than double the price over here - it's 165.99, which works out at just over $270. This is ridiculous.
