La Sportiva Miura Climbing Shoe
The La Sportiva Miura is one of the classic climbing shoes, great for bouldering and technical routes but can easily hold its own on multi-pitches or big wall climbs. An aggressive down-turn with a Slingshot rand and Powerhinge sole, coupled with an unlined under-foot area make it a great edging shoe that's both comfortable and sensitive. The synthetic lining provides balances out the stretch of the leather outer, making the La Sportiva Miura a great high-performance, all-round climbing shoe. Try the velcro version, the La Sportiva Miura VS if you're looking for a harder shoe.

Vibram XS Edge
Developed for maximum support, Vibram XS Edge rubber allows you to focus your weight on the tiniest of holds. Thanks to improved plastic deformation resistance, XS Edge keeps its shape through hours of repeated abuse, in hot or cold weather. Great for use in conditions where secure edging is paramount, it provides the best balance of performance and durability.
The La Sportiva Slingshot rand is a one-piece rubber rand which wraps around the entire foot. It prevents lateral stretching of the shoe and drives the foot forward for a powerful fit over the forefoot.
The La sportiva Powerhinge technology involves a hole cut on the sole that guarantees extra stablility on your edging. The rand of the shoe is connected to this area of the sole, so when you charge weight on the toe box, the sole-hole guarantees that the shoe will only stretch in the back half on the shoe. Your toes will stay on the edge while you will have a little extra stretch and comfort in the back of the shoe.

Legends say the Miura shoe has roamed the rock faces of earth for centuries. Be it on gnarly death whispering slabs, endless vertical walls or overhangs that turn your world upside down. It is said the Miuras lure climbers, once they fall into their trap the Miuras snug themselves around the feet of the befallen. Downturning, snug and technical the climber can accomplish any climb. If proven worthy to the shoes, tieing the laces will tie your soul to the miuras. The climber is rewarded with excellent grip, near blank faces turn into endless opportunity as if, with every foot placement, the miuras bite into the rock never letting go of that tiny, smeary, nano foothold. It has been said that heel and toe hooks become more solid than the rock itself. Of all the legends ( testarossa, katana ... ) around there the Miuras is by far the oldest and greatest of them all.
Love this model of La sportiva climbing shoes, for me this is the best choice from slabby to sightly overhanging routes. Perfect for onsighting, when you dont know the route and have to be prepared for everything. Once you get used to Miura you'll never want to try anything else. It is also good for beginners, but still Adam Ondra uses it in his hardest climbs.
These are great shoes - Excellent on small holds and work as a comfy shoe on vs climbs with laces open - made with quality - was a huge 5.10 but looks like one pair of la sportiva's might have me converted
These are my 3rd pair of La Sportiva Miura lace ups. I bought them from the EpicTV Shop because at the time they had them at the best price i could find. This new pair has been set aside for outdoors climbing, so i am interested to see how long they will last me! I normally go through a pair in about 14 months, climbing in the gym 3-4 days a week all year round.
Size wise, I am a 44.5 in most shoes, and climb with a 41.5. I have found this offers all round support, without being uncomfortable. I can wear them all day, but tend to pop them off when not climbing in them, just to keep them fresh and tight. Laces allow for good adjustment along the shoes, which is great for my crazy shape feet. They are great for edging, standing on tiny micro holds and stay firmly on the foot when you need to use the heel. Great shoe!
