A few weeks back I got the chance to share with you my first impressions on the Vibram Five Fingers Bikila. At the time, as the Bikila wasn't even officially "out" yet, and the pair I had was part of the Boston Marathon Expo / All-Star Barefoot Running mini-release and didn't even come in a box.
But the Vibram Five Fingers Bikila is out now! — at least for blocks of a few hours here and there as retailers put them on the shelves (Like yesterday when we finally saw women's Five Fingers Bikilas at CitySports — as well as the final men's color!), only to see them fly off those shelves in quick order. Both Travel Country and City Sports saw their online inventory disappear in rapid-fire succession, selling out of most sizes in hours.
The Bikila is presently the Vibram Five Fingers of choice — particularly for runners interested in minimalist or barefoot running — and as I recently got a pair — in an actual box — in the sky blue and yellow color combination, I decided to take a bunch of photos and do a "proper" video unboxing. So without further ado, after the jump you'll find a video unboxing of the sky blue/yellow Vibram Five Fingers Bikila complete with a slew of photos for your viewing pleasure!
