La Sportiva Miura VS Women's Climbing Shoe
The La Sportiva Miura VS Women's is a classic, high-performance, advanced climbing shoe that’s great for bouldering and technical routes, but can also hold its own on longer climbs. A more aggressive, down-turned version of the lace-up La Sportiva Miura Women's, this shoe features an distinctive downturn with the unique La Sportiva P3 platform and unlined under-foot area, meaning it’s great for edging, but comfortable and sensitive at the same time. The hook and loop closure system makes the Miura VS easy to take on and off, while the lined upper provided just the right amount of stretch when combined with the leather outer. All out La Sportiva climbing shoes are displayed with European sizing.

Vibram XS Edge Rubber
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 P3 Rand
The P3 (Permanent Power Platform) is a rand, developed by La Sportiva, which is used in aggressive climbing shoes to help them maintain their down-turned shape for the duration of their life.
Originally developed and patented by La Sportiva, The Slingshot 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.
Powerhinge is a technology used in La Sportiva climbing shoes, and basically put, means that the sole has a hole cut in it to for more stable edging. The rand of the shoe then connects to this area of the sole, so that when the toe of the shoe is weighted on an edge, the sole-hole means that the shoe will only stretch in the back half, not along the whole sole length. This provides extra stability to the climber as it means the toes will stay secure on the edge but you will have a little extra stretch and comfort in the back of the shoe.
Don't Just Take Our Word For It...
"If you love the edging power of the regular Miura and want something slightly more aggressive and quicker to put on, the Miura VS is a good choice".
