Original Post

6PM.com has lowered the price on the Bikilas to under $40!
Shipped free!
Entire List of Vibrams on sale! [6pm.com]

Special notes:
Sprints 31.99 [6pm.com]
Classics $34.99 [6pm.com]
Bikilas for $39.99 $5 off last few weeks and my personal favorite [6pm.com]
Bikilas LS $44.99 amazing price with free shipping [6pm.com]

Please remember wash very often to fight the Vibram funk or wear Injinji's which REI has been blowing out lately! [rei.com]
Also these shoes are not for everyone, no matter what anyone tells you. You take it easy in these at the start, do not put em on and try to run a couple miles, you will regret it.
If you enjoy being barefoot at home or in the yard, then these may be a great option for you to relearn how to run/walk.
You will want to get a foam roller if you plan on running in these it will help you tremendously... I swear by it.

Reps to the last poster who had the more expensive deal!

Which of these are good for mutiuse (normal walking and some light exercise?). KSO or classic?
I'm not into runner, but I'd like to give these a try... TIA
For normal walking and light exercise, I'd easily go for the Komodo (or KMD as they call them now) - they're very padded and feel very plush on the inside, which may not be the best for running but great for walking. I've seen people walking around with them in jeans and they don't look too ridiculous.

I've never tried the Classic but have run a half marathon in the KSO - it's absolutely great for running but I don't like walking in them to be honest. (You need less padding for running and more padding for walking, which seems weird but makes sense once you try them on)

I had also thought about the Bikila - are they a good starting point for these or would going with the KSO be better?
This really is personal preference. I tried on several pairs at REI. I chose the Bikila because they were the most comfortable for me and I'll probably buy two more pairs today: Bikila Strap and Bikila LS.

I think the KSO is slightly thinner than the Bikila (more minimal, closer to barefoot). The Bikila has a tread, whereas the KSO seems to be shaped like a foot. This means, to me, that the Bikila probably has better slip resistance than the KSO in water.

here's more info on the Bikila:

I think the Bikila was designed specifically with running in mind, but nothing about it prevents me from doing anything else. I walk around with them during the day, do yard work, workout in the gym. I just can't bike in them, because they're too thin.

I'm just a tad weary on the sizing.

On a regular shoe, I wear between a 10 & 11, measured my foot and it comes out that I would wear a size 44 in the FiveFingers. On 6PM, next to size 44, it says 11.5-12...

Should I go with a size 42 or 43 then? I have wide feet as well.

I wish I could help with sizes. I tried on a size 43 in the Komodo Sport and found it too tight. I'm pretty sure I wear a size 43 in the Bikila LS. All evidence points to me sizing to somewhere between 41-42 according to the various charts, but I believe I went one size higher with my Bikila LS.

I have tried running, but get terrible shin splints and can't go longer than 2 minutes (yet I can speed walk at faster speeds without issue).

I got new running shoes, no difference.

Tried running with just socks on... was able to go for 5 minutes without the same pain.

I'm guessing something like these might be best for me? I had considered them before, but especially now knowing how not wearing shoes seems to help out..
Had that problem. Try stretching out calves. Helped me.

Sounds good. I wish they had free return shipping.

I'll stop by my local sports store when I get off work in a few, hopefully it doesn't sell out online by the time I'm able to get my size.

Edit: Also looking at these (VFF Flow Multisport - $44.93): http://www.rei.com/product/811208...shoes-mens

Just not sure about the neoprene that people are mentioning.

I'd be leary of buying these without trying them on. It's critical that they fit. My experience with the fingers is that other shoe sizes have zero correlation to them. Even different types of fingers at the same size fit differently for me.

By the way, the KMDs are the same price at REI.

I bought these last time when the Treksport was on sale for $40. Good shoes overall.
The one problem I had was at the end of the day, my feet smelt so bad. It was bad.

No size 47 = fail if you wear a 13 sized shoe; at least according to their sizing wizard.

I don't know why, but I'm always creeped out when people wear these.
