The Womens Vibram Fivefingers Bikila running shoe takes the now classic design of Fivefingers and gears it toward barefoot running pursuits.
In 1960, Abebe Bikila set a new world record when he won the gold medal in the 1960 Olympic marathon. And he did so while running barefoot. So it should stand to reason that the first true running shoe from Vibram Fivefingers bear his name. Built on an entirely new platform, the Vibram Bikila encourages a more natural and efficient forefoot strike. The taut upper of the Fivefingers Bikila envelops your foot in powerful performance like a second skin, perfect for runners with low to medium volume feet. No other Fivefingers has the exceptional runners fit like the Bikila.
This Vibram barefoot running shoe features a Dri-Lex covered 3mm polyurethane insole, which is thickest under the ball, to provide excellent plating protection. Below the Bikila, a 4mm anatomical pod outsole helps distribute impact without hindering ground feedback that's essential to a proper running form. The single hook and loop closure secures your foot within the Bikila as you sprint down your favorite path. A more athletic padded collar and topline finish out the running shoe performance and style. With reflective material on the strap and heel, you stay more visible in low light situations. When it's time to hit the road, there's no fit like the Womens Vibram Fivefingers Bikila.
