La Sportiva Miura VS Climbing Shoe
The La Sportiva Miura VS is the slightly stiffer version of the Miura Lace, as well as being better suited for wider feet.
Unlike the original, the Miura VS features La Sportiva's P3® rand system that makes the shoe slightly stiffer and less likely to lose its shape after stretching. Aside from that, the shoe is mainly the same. It features a slingshot rand and a Powerhinged sole that, when small edges are weighted, prevents the shoe from stretching in the front half of the shoe to keep power and control on tiny holds. An aggressive downturn does mean it can still hook onto overhanging holds and slot into pockets, however!
Many people wear these shoes tight for technical sport climbing and high-end bouldering, but others who have worn them looser say that they perform just as well for crack climbing, trad routes, and big wall climbing. They have a leather upper with a synthetic lining (none under the foot however so as to not reduce sensitivity), and so will probably stretch about half a size.

Vibram XS Edge™
Rubber compound built for maximum performance on micro holds and extreme edging. This formula uses an improved plastic deformation resistance that ensures the utmost stability, rigidity, and support on footholds in hot or cold weather, as well as generally increasing durability.
P3® Permanent Power Platform
After intensive abuse, downturned climbing shoes can start to lose their distinctive shape. La Sportiva’s P3 rand system prevents from this happening so your shoe maintains its powerful profile, permanently.
Full Features List
• The Slingshot Rand connected to the Powerhinge under the shoe increases edging performance
• The Slingshot Rand encapsulates the shoe and prevents lateral stretching to keep the foot's power drive forward
• Powerhinge is a small hole cut into the sole to make sure the shoe only stretches in the back and not the front on small edges

Great all around shoes. Good fit for wide feet. Stiff and precise, excells on edging.
Like tham a lot!
After suffering great pain with lace miura i find this pair and they great. Very comfortable from the first time.
I buy the same size as the lace version.
You can go down half size if you like. It my work.
For me thos shoes are great especially for rock climbing because they stiffness and presis edge. Thay can toe on basically noting.
The Miura VS are perfect for me as an intermediate climber coming out of some beginner shoes like the La Sportiva Tarantula. They are helping me greatly to improve my footwork because of their shape, either while Bouldering or Sport Climbing in the Gym or while taking them outside for some outdoor climbing in Argentina.
An additional thing to mention is that the delivery to my country was done in less than 4 days including a weekend - even faster than internal shipments lol
Three Shoes for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One SHOE to rule them all, One SHOE to find them,
One SHOE to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
Basically Miuras are the best shoes ever so go buy them. They do it all.
TRY ANY CLIMBING SHOE BEFORE BUYING THEM. After spending over 1h trying all the shoes in store, this is the one that fit me the best. I have a slender foot and this is the only shoe that felt tight enough also around the heel. Used extensively indoors and a couple times outdoors, no complaints whatsoever. I climb about 10-15h a week and they yet to show a sign of overuse after a few months. On top of that, they also became quite confortable to keep on even in between climbs
