Hello,
 
Unfortunately we do not ship outside of the US.  If you would like to make an international order, you can do so using the Google Checkout option and have the order shipped to someone in the US who can forward it to you.
 
We are hoping to have the Bikilas in stock around the first week of May.  We are not accepting any preorders so make sure to sign up for email updates on our website.

^You'd probably get a quicker response if you just gave them a call.

My store (Gazelle's in Michigan) says the same:  Bikilas should arrive on Monday the 10th of May.  2010.  AD.

This sounds like good news to me!  Can't wait to give them a try.  Pretty sure I won't wear them on a regular basis as I finally took off my VFF's and am running in the nude.  I am certainly enjoying the transition!  Nothing is lighter then your own two feeties!

i agree that they are over engineered but man the tech science in that shoe is amazing.  start with the fly wire that creates a support cage around the mid-foot but it feather light, then the multi density foam in the sole that will react to the runner's own body weight allowing the shoe to give the best amount of return support.  lets not forget the crazy light foam they are using in the lunar shoes.  then the measured placement of the grooves cut into the sole to allow as much foot flexion as possible to give the foot reactionary sensory feedback and allow the muscles to work.  The single piece upper that is seamless and made of a durable/light mesh that offers maximum breathability.  the exoskeleton made of synthetic suede feeling material that gives the shoe is upper structure yet gives to allow the foot to assume it's natural shape.  the exoskeleton is also very calculated as it is designed to go around the foot in a manner that will not hinder the toes in the toe box so that they can move around yet be supported.  add to that the fact that this is a Nike+ shoe and you are looking at a marvel of science and engineering.  i dont like shoes and i have owned a pair of these that cause me nightmarish knee pain but even still i look at those shoes in my closet and i can applaud the time and effort that went into designing them.  they just arent what the body actually needs....so sad

Interesting comment.  Professor Lieberman said almost exactly the same thing at the event at City Sports in Boston last month.  He said running shoes are actually quite remarkable in that they allow a huge number of people to successfully (depending on how you want to define that term) run in a way that we're naturally unsuited to.  That may not sound like a great accomplishment, but I think it's actually pretty impressive in its own way.

Foot problems are the reason most people can't, or shouldn't run.  You have to look at the ankle, hip and knee alignment.  Running shoes (or heel striking) puts more stress on these joints than barefoot style running.  Some people are built to run and many are not.  Shoes aren't going to save them.
