BREAKING NEWS! I have gotten word from the good people at CitySports that the Vibram Five Fingers Bikila has landed, at least sort of landed!
It's like a mini-landing. Read on!
Specifically, the City Sports on 480 Boylston Street — the same one where the barefoot running clinic will be held Saturday — has received a "quick strike" of very limited quantities (none for women yet and only in grey/red! H/T VFF-Friday) of the Bikila that should be available sometime this afternoon or evening! I'm sure they will go very fast and per @citysports, you can only get them at this specific store (no holds or transfers!). Hey, what did I say about the Bikila arriving "just in time" to blow your tax refund?
Note 1: This doesn't terminate the free Bikila giveaway contest yet! The contest will terminate when City Sports carries the Bikila online! You can still participate by subscribing by email! I expect City Sports will have them online for general purchase in the next few days!
Note 2: If you attend the clinic Saturday, be on the look out for BirthdayShoes.com 5-foot logo stickers! They should have a few to hand out to attendees!
Exciting times! The Vibram Five Fingers Bikila is finally here! Woot! Er ... Foot!
Read on for the update!

Wishing a very happy birthday to Rich, who got his birthday shoes some birthday shoes — new Vibram Five Fingers Bikilas! I asked Rich to pass on any photos he could of his new kicks and here's what he sent my way:
Here's what Rich had to say about his new Bikila Vibrams, as well as the Boston City Sports carrying them:
- it is only that City Sports that has them
- they are selling fast
- they have the crazy electric blue color as well as the red and grey
- they don't even have boxes for them; the Bikilas came straight from the manufacturer, and City Sports received them in individual plastic bags
They're really nice and hopefully will be widely available soon!
Thanks for the intell from the front lines, Rich! And again, Happy Birthday!
