Every once in a while, a product comes along that changes the way we engage in sport. It bucks tradition, and makes everyone think differently. Consider products like shaped skis, full suspension mountain bikes, or oversized tennis rackets. Sometimes this happens in footwear and a whole new category is created, like sport sandals, aerobic fitness trainers, or Vibram® soled dress shoes so comfortable you could run a marathon. Originally, many of these products were considered a novelty, maybe even a gimmick, but eventually, they helped define a new standard of performance. And most important, they delivered a better experience for the user.
Vibram FiveFingers® might be considered such a product, a revolutionary footwear design that allows our anatomy to work naturally and move more freely. Imagine footwear that can actually help make the foot healthier, that can strengthen muscles in the feet and lower legs, improve range of motion, and increase sensory reception important to balance and agility. Imagine footwear that might just make running safer and healthier, by encouraging a forefoot strike and a more natural running form that creates less impact on the knees, hips and lower back. That is what Vibram FiveFingers® can offer.
We are not saying that Vibram FiveFingers® is the only footwear you will ever need. There are times when we need the protection and security of a boot or shoe. Like all things in life, there is a balance, and Vibram FiveFingers® offer an alternative to traditional footwear. Wearing Vibram FiveFingers® for fitness training, running, or just for fun, will make your feet stronger and healthier – naturally.
VIBRAM FiveFingers® Bikila
Unlike any running shoe on the market today, the Bikila was our first model designed specifically for a more natural, healthier, and more efficient forefoot strike. While many folks have been running in their Vibram FiveFingers® for years, the Bikila is our first model designed specifically for a more natural running experience. Built on an entirely new platform, the Bikila features a Dri-Lex® covered 3mm polyurethane insole (thickest under the ball) and a 4mm anatomical pod outsole design that offers more plating protection, and distributes forefoot impact without compromising important ground feedback essential to a proper forefoot strike running form. A more athletic padded collar and topline, a single hook and loop closure, 3M reflective surfaces, and tear resistant TPU toe protection finish off this breakthrough design.
Vibram is the world leader in the production and sale of high performance rubber outsoles in the markets of sport, leisure, work footwear, orthopaedic and repair.
The history of Vibram dates back to 1937, when Vitale Bramani, Academic of the Italian Alpine Club, returned from a tragic alpine climb and had the brilliant idea of developing rubber biking boot soles. These would be produced using the same technique used by Pirelli for the production of tires. As a result the first vulcanized rubber sole and the famous Carrarmato” design was born. This design went on to start a legacy of rubber sole designs changing footwear design forever.
Over the decades Vibram has been committed to developing a range of products that provide excellent performance in a wide range of activities including outdoor sports (such as mountaineering, motorcycling, hiking, trail running etc.) to fashion, work and leisure.
Thanks to continuous investments in innovation, research and development, Vibram can be so far considered as the world leader in soling. The yellow octagon logo symbolizes the high performance, quality and safety that Vibram is known for world wide.
|Which size is right for you?|
|Foot shapes and sizes vary greatly. FiveFingers do provide some fit adjustment, but may not fit every foot type. To achieve the best fitting results for the particular style you are interested in, we recommend you to follow the sizing chart and instructions below.|
|Foot length is measured in centimetres/inches and not in shoe size|
|Foot length||Inches||9 1/2||9 3/4||10||10 1/4||10 1/2||10 3/4||11||11 1/4||11 1/2||11 3/4||12||12 1/4|
|1. Stand with your heels flush against a flat vertical wall.
2. Slide a ruler under each foot and measure the distance from the wall to the tip of the longest toe.
3. Take the longer of the two foot measurements
4. If the foot length varies more than 0,42cm it will be difficult to get a precise fit for both foot.
5. If the second toe is more than 0,42cm longer than your big toe it may be difficult to get a precise fit.
