I got my bikilas in this week and the first time i put them on it was super tight. Not lengthwise but just above the knucles of my toes.. which reminded me of the first time i put a pair of VFF's on (black ksos). They were so tight that when i took them off, the shape of the plastic toes guards were indented on my toes. So like mavch15738 mentioned they do contribute to the tightness.

That being said i wore them around the house for a couple of days and they seemed to stretch out. I wore them to work today and they fit perfect now...."like a glove".
I'd go for the tighter pair

My first pair just arrived today.  I measured, re-measured, and measured again and ordered the size indicated but when I tried them on they felt really tight (rectrictive) just on the pinkie toe of my left foot.  I have been debating on returning them but dont really want to wait another three weeks for replacements.  From what I gather from reading this forum they wil stretch so I guess I will go ahead and remove the tags and venture outside.

if it's just restricting one toe do not send them back.  let your foot and shoe adapt a little and see how it goes before you do something like that

Thats what I decided to do.  I wore them around the hooch with Injinji's for a couple days to loosen them up a little and it really helped.  This morning I took them on a test run (without the socks) and had a blast.  Having read the warnings I kept it to 1.5 miles even though I really wasnt ready to bring it in.  Calves are slightly tight but not too bad at all.  I'm currenty fighting the urge to do 2 tomorrow AM.  Either way, I'm sold.
