Update! CitySports was restocked again today (5/18/2010) across all colors for both men and women.
I've got great news (at long last!) for everyone in the Vibram Five Fingers nation! CitySports just got a bunch of Vibram Five Fingers Bikilas for both men and women! You can grab them here (while supplies last! Which won't be long if history is any guide!):
- women's Vibram Five Fingers Bikila — Grey and Green (pic)
- women's Vibram Five Fingers Bikila — Magenta and Orange (pic)
- men's Vibram Five Fingers Bikila — Grey and Green (pic)
- men's Vibram Five Fingers Bikila — Grey and Red (detailed pics, description)
- men's Vibram Five Fingers Bikila — Sky Blue and Yellow (unboxing)
The Vibram Five Fingers Bikila inventory above is expected to go live on the CitySports website today around 4:00pm EST though that is only an estimate.
The Vibram Five Fingers Bikila is the new running-specific "barefoot shoe" by Vibram that features a totally revamped sole design; a virtually seamless inner Dri-Lex sock liner; an Achilles notch at the rear (making the VFFs cup the heel rather than applying pressure at the tendon); reflective material at key points; TPU toe (top) protection; and is the most refined (outdoor-use) Vibram Five Fingers to hit the market yet. It sizes—in theory, as VFF sizing is always tricky—like the KSOs. That said, with the new larger ankle opening and heel/strap methodology, the fit will feel a bit different than other models of Vibram Five Fingers.
Be sure to see my initial review, photos, and detailed description of the Vibram Five Fingers Bikila here. Also, I anticipate posting an unboxing with a slew of photos of the sky blue, yellow, and grey Vibram Bikilas (including video) in the next day or so — just as soon as YouTube starts cooperating!
Note: Last week, an email alert was sent to BirthdayShoes subscribers regarding men's Bikila inventory that was available for purchase at Travel Country. That inventory sold out within hours of it going online. Though I do not anticipate posting to the blog here every time a retailer gets new inventory in, I am considering creating a special email list for those who would like to be notified about new inventory shipments at participating retailers. The goal here would be to help people find retailers with Vibram Five Fingers in stock. If this would be of interest to you, please let me know by way of commenting below!
