La Sportiva Miura VS Climbing Shoe
The La Sportiva Miura VS is a high-performance climbing shoe that excels at steep sport climbing and technical bouldering. The La Sportiva Miura VS is an all-out edging beast, thanks to its aggressive downturn and La Sportiva's unique P3 technology, which brings all the extra support and accuracy you need for lifting the bar on hard projects, while maintaining enough sensitivity for micro-edging and smearing. Featuring a synthetic lining and leather upper that’s unlined underfoot to increase sensitivity, the La Sportiva VS Miura needs to fit tight for full potential, really tight. The La Sportiva Miura VS is a hard, stiff rock shoe that's not going to stretch significantly. The Velcro closure system allows for fast adjustments and makes for easy ons and offs, but check out the laced version, The La Sportiva Miura, if you're looking for a more precise fit and superior edging power.

Vibram XS Grip 2
The natural evolution of a winning compound, XS Grip 2 rubber improves upon the superior grip characteristics of XS Grip and delivers outstanding precision in the form of support, shape and stability. It provides exceptional grip in every condition and was developed especially for climbing shoes by Vibram.
The la Sportiva P3 (Permanent Power Platform) is a rand is used in aggressive climbing shoes to help them maintain their down-turned shape for the duration of their life.
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.
La Sportiva Miura VS Review
"If your shoe quiver is in need of a technical face-climbing workhorse, I don’t know that you can do better than the Miura VS. The stiffness of the Velcro version, relative to the lace-up Miura, accentuates the Miura’s already well-known ability to edge and grab small features. People in the sport climbing camp (like me) won’t bat an eye at the loss of crack climbing prowess (since I never used them for cracks in the first place), and will applaud the edging improvements of the Miura VS. For those in the sized-up trad/crack climbing camp, well, stick with the Miura lace." -Dave Alie, BlisterGearReview.com

Great shoe for boulder and sport climbing. Number 1 choice.
The Miura VS and Miura Lace are two different shoes. While the lace is for crack climbing with different rubber and shape, the Miura VS is an edging machine! It´s stiff and downturned with hardish rubber. Painful at first, but once it´s streched it´s all good! For me the Lasportiva Solution is a better allrounder, but the Miura VS are better at edging. Miura VS doesn´t have much feel to it, being stiff with hard rubber, so it´s not that great at smearing. The heel is great for heelhooks, but the toes are poor for toe hooks (this can be solved by adding/gluing rubber a la 5.10 rubber shavings kit).And the toes are really down turned and crammed inside the toebox, so crack climbing jamming feet is out of the question in these for me. Same size as Solution, half a size up from Mirua Lace, a half/one size down from 5.10 Anasazi Lace for reference.
I bought these for my boyfriend to try.
I have been wearing the female version, exclusively, for the last 2 years. I have down sized but they do not cause pain, even when new (street size 37/38 - miuraVS size 35). The 3 strap closure means a perfect fit for every foot shape. I can wear them on routes straight out of the box - gone are my days of wearing new boots round the house to stretch them in.
I use them indoors to train and outdoors for bouldering and sport climbing (all angles and rock types). They have never let me down and their stiffness has sometimes been a bit of an advantage. The also wear very well for a top end boot and last much longer than other brands I have used.
My boyfriend is a convert and he ordered another pain after his first outing in them.
Can not recommend these enough
Great shoe with awesome edging power, my go to for less steep terrain
