Wearing heels throughout high school may not have been the best idea, but then again, neither were sky-high bangs, neon eyeshadow, and cone bras. Years have passed, and you've gone from teetering around to flats, loafers, and minimalist fitness shoes. The Vibram FiveFingers Women's Bikila LS Running Shoe fits nicely within your footwear line-up, smartly filling the running shoe gap. Designed specifically for road running, the Bikila LS addresses the needs of a forefoot-focused gait pattern and maintains a true minimalist 0mm heel-toe drop. Barefoot road running creates an intimate relationship between all of the bits and pieces in your foot, leg, and back, often called the kinetic chain. Like most relationships, at first the lines of communication lack clarity, and pain ensues. Just take it slow at first, and after an acclimation period, your foot will freely speak with the rest of the chain for a more efficient forefoot-striking posture. Notwithstanding, your paw requires protection from rough-and-tumble road surfaces. Individual toe slots make each toe work alone, and TPU toe caps shield your tootises from run-ending scraps and stubs when you're hopping over potholes and busted curbs. The 3mm polyurethane insole adds a whisper-thin layer of protection between your foot and the ground, while the Dri-Lex covering moves moisture away from your foot. Hot dogs aren't happy dogs. On the bottom, deliberately situated anatomical pads offer plating to protect impact zones from the jarring pain of pebbles or general road debris without compromising ground feedback. EVA arch construction follows the natural lines of your instep for arch support without adding weight to the shoe. Up top, stretch nylon quickly conforms to the intricacies of your foot when you pull the speed-lacing system tight. A hook-and-loop tab secures the laces, and the padded collar cushions your heel.
