Thanks yeah I would love to but ordered these online as there are no local dealers by me that actually carry the Bikilas in stock.

I know that frustration, no one around here has them in stock either and it is a pain to find someone who ships them to Canada AND has them in stock!

Can you order the 44's online, and then sell whichever ones you decide not to keep on here? I am sure someone will buy them Smiley

I agree. Sizes 41-44 seem to be the sizes in highest demand. I got a different color because I wasn't able to find the red ones in 43.

I can't agree more with it being a totally different shoe. I own size 41 kso's that I can fit injinji toesocks in. Also a size 41 sprint that fits well. Just got my size 40 blue yellow/green bikilas and they are very tight. I'm not sure if it is a good thing.

I am wearing them at work currently getting the feel. My big toes could not be closer to the end of the pocket. My foot can not slip around in this shoe at all. I feel like that might be a good thing though. Kind of like tight soccer cleats but hopefully won't destroy my knees like those did ;P. I'm going to bite the bullet and go for a 2-3 mile run tonight and see how they feel.

Ok I have worn my bikilas a handful of times and honestly not sure I like them. It maybe that they are to small. They seem tight across the toes  and top of foot. Plus the toe pockets feel narrow. Length is ok, not sure if they will stretch a bit or I should of gotten a 44.
What's your guys thoughts think they will stretch a bit.

I know exactly how you feel.  I've had my bikilas for 11 days now and they finally feel a lot better than when I first got them.  They were way too snug across the foot, but as suggested by people here, I wore them around during the day and did very short runs (about 2 miles).  I washed them and then wore them around while they were still wet and at night stuffed really big wadded socks into them to stretch them out.  It all helped and the bikilas feel a lot better and more comfortable.  As a side note the sole started separating from the fabric a bit  on the sides, but not enough to make me want to start the entire stretching process again with a new pair (if I can even find my size).  I wonder if the separation is giving it a little more width to fit my foot?  I'll probably end up glueing it if it becomes problematic.

Went for my run last night and loved the shoe. I thought that I was on the too small end of the tight fitting bikila, which I may still be. I don't appreciate these shoes for anything but running. They may stretch out and be better for everyday wear. Normally my feet become a little sore on my runs, this didn't happen last night with my snug bikilas. I was able to add another mile to my run and still feel like I hadn't run at all feet wise. I'm looking forward to them breaking into my feet but for now I will not use them for anything but running but also I will not run in anything but bikilas now.
