Vibram FiveFingers Bikila LS Running Shoes - Women'sis rated4.8333out of5by6.
Rated4out of5byfromgo up a size if you're around size 41I am usually a size 10-10.5, medium to wide. I used the size chart, one foot was the right measurement for a 41, the other foot is a little closer to a size 42. I went with the 41 after reading other reviews about wanting them snug and how they will stretch. I got them home, tried them on, and the 41 is definitely too small for me. I have rather long toes, which felt much more constricted than freed in the 41. I am planning to try the mens version to get a little bit wider of a foot. Running around the house to try them out, they feel good with good cushioning. Excited to get the right fit.

Rated5out of5byfromgreat shoes!these shoes have no cushioning or arch support, but that is expected with a minimalist shoe. definitely need to work into wearing them for many hours. I love them. I have many pairs and have already had to retire a few.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat running shoes!A thicker tread updates this model of Vibrams. I purchased this pair for the fully adjustable (laced) top for my higher arch and a more durable tread for both road and trail running. Initally, I thought they ran small but I stuck with the size I had previous and they have stretched out and broken in nicely. A great shoe!

Rated5out of5byfromFits like a glove!This is my second pair of VFF; I have a pair of KSOs. I just bought these Bikila LSs yesterday and I have not worked out in them yet but they feel great on! It's much better than I expected and I am looking forward to hitting the gym and the track in these. I went to REI looking for the Seeyas but they did not have them so I thought I would give these a try instead. What I really like about them so far is the ankle support which is a lot better than on the KSO.

Rated5out of5byfromComfortable, durableI really expected to be satisfied with these shoes. It's way more than that. I've been wearing them for a month now and they are still just as shockingly comfortable as the first day I put them on. I will never buy another athletic shoe. I take them on trails, concrete, climbing - they're perfect. I've tried a bunch of "natural stride" shoes and these? These are the best.

Rated5out of5byfromImprovement over original BikilaI have a pair of the original Vibram Bikilas, and they are pretty good except that the instep is just a bit too snug and the toes feel a bit cramped after a while. I got the Bikila LS in hopes that the tongue and lace system would solve my instep problem--and they did, wonderfully. These shoes feel like they belong on my feet. So far I haven't had an issue with room in the toes either. They fixed the only minor quibbles I had with the Bikila in making the Bikila LS, and they are much easier to put on as well. Definitely worth the upgrade.
