La Sportiva Miura VS Women's Climbing Shoe

The La Sportiva Miura VS Women's is identical to the men's Miura VS bar a couple of key differences. The La Sportiva Miura VS uses XS Grip 2 rubber over Edge and its sole is 3.5mm thick rather than 4. The effect of this is not only a shoe that is better for smearing and sticking to frictionless rock, but a softer shoe that will be more responsive to the lighter weight of women.

Aside from that, the shoe is mostly the same. The Miura VS Women's 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.

Features

Miura VS Women's Climbing Shoe

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.

Miura VS Women's Climbing Shoe

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.

Miura VS Women's Climbing Shoe

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

Bought my first pair of Miura VS for women 4 months ago, took a couple of sessions to break in the rubber but after that you feel that the shoe will edge on the tiniest foot hold. Never wore tight and down-turned shoes before and I am enjoying the power on overhanging routes and the awesome heel hooks that never slip.
It's not a shoe for smearing, very hard to do that with the miura. I ordered it 2 numbers below my regular shoe size and I am enjoying them very much.
