Designed specifically for natural running, the Vibram FiveFingers Bikila LS running shoes offer a near-barefoot experience and a custom, snug fit thanks to a quick-lace system. Uppers created using coconut fiber, polyurethane and nylon create light but tough outer shells that hug your feet and keep debris out. Individual toe slots enhance dexterity, control and stability to deliver a natural running motion; thermoplastic urethane toe bumpers enhance protection. Quick-lace closure system and locking buckle allows for a comfortable custom fit with just 1 easy pull. Antibacterial treatment helps deter odors. Moisture-wicking nylon covers 3mm polyurethane insoles to provide comfort and cushioning underfoot, with special emphasis under the ball of the foot. Outsole traction pods follow the curves of feet and toes; made of nonmarking Vibram TC1 rubber. 3M reflective hits increase your visibility low light. Recommended for running, fitness training and light trekking. In order to allow your feet to adapt to using different muscles, begin use of these shoes gradually and increase over time. Vibram FiveFingers Bikila LS running shoes are machine washable in cold water; air dry only, away from sun or heat source. To determine size, stand with heels against a wall and measure from the wall to the tip of the longest toe on each foot; use the longer of the 2 lengths with the size chart.

Your foot has 26 bones, 33 joints, and hundreds of muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The Vibram FiveFingers Men's Bikila LS Running Shoe gives every last piece of foot anatomy the opportunity to engage in the kinetic chain that is your lean and mean body. From the company that brought minimalist shoes into the mainstream, the Bilika is designed specifically to enhance gait efficiency while supporting a forefoot-striking posture. Whether you're starting the barefoot adventure or a long-time toe-shoe fanatic, this minimalist runner keeps you and your foot firmly anchored to the ground. With a one-pull speed-lacing system, the stretch nylon upper conforms to the contours of your foot. The laces stay in place throughout your run with a simple hook-and-loop tab. Your heel feels the love from a low-profile padded collar and topline. The individual toe slots give each tootsie time to find it's place in your running world. TPU toe plates offer protection from potholes, crumbling concrete, and bits of broken glass as your route winds along city streets or suburban roads. Most running shoes have laces and toe shields, but the Bikila LS is a breed unto itself. The Dri-Lex covering on the 3mm polyurethane insole helps transport moisture away from your foot for longer-wearing comfort. The insole focuses cushioning under the ball of your foot for maximum comfort. Anatomical pods provide protection from road debris and help distribute forefoot impact forces without dampening ground feedback. When the earth talks, your foot can still hear everything it has to say. EVA arch construction follows the natural lines of your instep, keeping the shoe whisper-light and providing some support for those with high arches. If you're just beginning the barefoot evolution, go slowly at first. Too much too soon and your dogs will be barkin' for days on end.
