Vibram FiveFingers Bikila LS

The Vibram FiveFinger Bikila LS is a reboot of the original Bikila, but with the additions of a speedlacing system and new color options. The addition of the laces help the Bikila LS accomodate a larger variety (read: wider) of foot types as well as provide a more secure fit.

  • Crossfit

People Who Should Buy the Vibram FiveFingers Bikila LS

  • Runners
  • Gym-goers
  • Fitness enthusiasts

You Shouldn’t Buy These FiveFingers If

Like the original Bikilas, the Bikila LS has a little more “meat” in the sole. If you’re of the “less is more” mentality, I’d stick to one of the older models (e.g. Sprints, KSO’s, or Classics).

Also, you shouldn’t buy these if you’re a trail runner or hiker. The Bikila LS are meant for the road; they don’t have much in the way of tread for a solid grip on unstable surfaces
