After about a year in my Bikilas, I have decided that I just can't use them. They are good, don't get me wrong. It's just that they don't fit my feet quite right, though they should. They aren't loose at all, and my toes can fully extend comfortably. I think my issue is with the heel construction. For whatever reason on my left heel it rubs against my Achilles in a way that causes a blister within two laps of the running track. Ive tried body glide but that doesn't stop the blistering. For the gym, Bikilas are waaay to hot when wearing even the thinnest injinji socks. My feet are soaked after a workout. It's a shame because I did like running in them on pavement and light trails, but after a year they still really bother my heel (only on my left foot, weird).
I'm looking at grabbing a pair of seeya's, and if I don't like how they feel then I'll go with the KSO's again. I had them before but they fell apart, and the running store I went to only had Bikilas left in my size, so I went for them. I really tried them, and feel bad that I can't use them. I'll stick with my Komodosports until I can get to Edmonton.
Have you ever given any thought to the Speeds for your workout shoes? I find them comfortable in the heel, same Bikila tread, and a little more breathable due to the mesh upper. It is worth a shot.
I'll give them a try when I go to my VFF dealer (gotta get my fix, lol). If he has my size in I'll definitely try them on!
