Is this a new variant coming out?

It appears to be a waterproof version of the Bikila Evo,  with a higher rise around the ankle,  similar to the Lontra.   Rubber compound also seems to aimed at cooler temps,  better for snow and ice.

I believe they are authentic, having seen them in a catalogue "leaked" here.

Available for pre-order in UK. http://www.feetus.co.uk/footwear-c1/vibram-fivefingers-mens-bikila-evo-wp-running-shoes-pre-order-p419
What is the sole though? Description refers to it as built on a Bikila sole, then goes on to describe an 'icetrek' sole.

From the photo it looks to me like it will do water ok, but not convinced about snow or ice. Didn't have any snow last winter but spent a fair bit of time, mostly walking and general use in Lontras. Think I'd be more confident in slippery conditions with the Lontras cleated trek sole.

The only thing that scares me is the price.$200+ for a pair of FiveFingers?

That's nothing! The Bormio and Trek LS retailed over here for 200 (approx $320).

They have the Bikila EVO WP at moosejaw.com, but they don't ship to Canada. When are they going to have it on vibramfivefingers.com? Shouldn't they be the first ones to have it?

So I ordered them from moosejaw, 149.95$ free shipping, and they will be delivered to my parents's winter's address in the States. Will have to wait until they come home for the holidays.

I just received an e-mail from Vibram, they said it's going to be available on their site on Dec.1st. And yes it'll be hard to wait until mid-december when my parents arrive  Cry, but I'll save money on shipping and customs  Tongue.
