The muiras are a nice compromise between an ultra aggressive shoe like the Solution and a standard lace-up. I picked up a pair of these on the way to Yosemite and loved them the whole time. They performed well bouldering and on multipitch trad routes equally. The laces allow for a comfy fit that is specific to your foot while remaining aggressive enough to edge the polished footchips of the valley. The only downside to these is the laces themselves, they do take a bit longer to tie than a velcro alternative and sometimes came untied while climbing (I had to double knot them, which took more time). Overall I would recommend these shoes for just about anyone, depending on how you tie them they can suit very different purposes.
