Following in the footsteps of the original Vibram FiveFingers Bikila, the new Bikila LS offers a closed speed lace system to accommodate a wider foot or higher instep. It shares the same revolutionary platform as the Bikila, featuring a Dri-Lex covered 3mm polyurethane insole (thickest under the ball) and a 4mm anatomical pod outsole design. This combination provides superior plating protection and distributes forefoot impact without compromising essential ground feedback. The Bikila LS’ upper is constructed of Coconut Active Carbon for natural breathability.
An athletic padded collar and topline, 3M reflective surfaces, and abrasion resistant PU toe protection add to Bikila LS’ road worthy design. The defining feature of the Bikila LS’ is its closed quick lace system assuring a custom fit for a wider range of foot types.Men's Bikila LS size conversionYour Foot Length→in inches ± 1/8"9½"9¾"10"10¼"10½"10¾"11"11¼"11½"11¾"12"12¼"Your Bikila LS Size→4041424344454647
Bikila LS Fitting Tips
With the lacing system completely loosened, insert your foot while gradually aligning each toe with the appropriate toe pocket" it's often best to start with your big toe and work down to the little toe, gradually inching forward as each toe finds its place. Check to make sure one toe is in each pocket.
AFTER each toe is in place, pull up the heel cup and nestle your own heel into the FiveFingers heel cup. It's important to get your heel firmly seated in the heel cup.
Slide the toggle down to the base of the laces until you have found your ideal fit.
Use the hook and loop fasteners at the end of the laces and affix them to the instep of the shoe.
