    Perfect all around climbing shoe

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 6.5 (U.S.)

    Having trouble finding a shoe that you can where all day yet still retain the aggressiveness of a highly technical rock boot? Look no further. These things are comfortable (even with my toes squished up against the front of the shoe), and they edge like a dream. However, I give them 4 stars for 1 reason. While this shoe is advertised as being perfect for the most aggressive pitches out there, when it comes to toe hooks or anything overhung, this shoe is beat out by its velcro counterpart (VCS) by a long shot. Now, is this shoe much more comfortable? Yes. Will it fulfill the role that 90% of us need it to? Absolutely. But, for those in that last 10%, you might want to look elsewhere for those specialty applications.

    I usually order Katana's but wanted something slightly more agressive and a lace up for crack climbing.
    These fit like a glove! I got the same size as I do in Katana's. When i tried these on when I first started climbing I thought they were awful but after a few years my foot is ready for these so I placed the order.
    Have used for trad crack climbing, foot jam like a pro in these.
    I put fit as "true to size" as they are true to La Sportiva sizing for rock shoes.

    My go-to shoe for bouldering & sporting

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    I've had about 6 pairs of Miuras and I keep coming back to them for everything except really steep climbing. This is the kind of shoe that I'd buy a ton of if they stopped making them.

    Forever attached to this shoe.

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    These shoes are single-handedly the greatest pair of rock shoes for technical climbing I've ever put my foot in. Man, I just can't say enough about them. I have a major issue with most non-lined shoes stretching and losing all edging power once your feet sweat as the shoe shoe starts to roll around on your foot. With the Muira's that never happens. They are so precise and never lose shape. I use these shoes on the plethora of technical face and slab climbs in the Adirondacks, they stem corners well, rock finger cracks and hold well on gently overhanging rock. Great shoe for the technical climbs at the gunks as you can edge the faces and then have the power to pull roofs at the top. I've bouldered a lot with them in the daks and a bit in Colorado and have no complaints, at a certain angle it's best to just pull out the steep shoes though. Not super comfy on long slabs or handcracks though, think lumpy ridge. Other than that they rock a large spectrum of climbing styles



    I just got my current pair resoled in the fall and the three weeks I didn't have them was pretty brutal. After so many hot September days trying to edge in your beater Moccasyms you really start to miss the muiras. After getting them back from the resole they climbed just like new again, (thanks to plattsburgh shoe hospital) The shoe is really just a must for those who love technical climbing (gunks, daks, eldo, etc.) Don't pass them by, it's worth every penny.

    A great pair of next level shoes

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size

    I have been climbing for about 2 years and have gotten by with cheaper shoes because getting really aggressive shoes wouldn't have helped but I thought it was time to upgrade.



    The Miura has been great! I wanted a somewhat aggressive shoes because I really like to climb crimpy and slabby stuff and I needed something that could edge well and this shoes lives up to it! The toe box is nice and snug around my toes and theres no movement of my foot in the shoe at all. The heel fits fine too, I don't use my heel too much but it think it would be up for the challenge if I needed too. I really like lace up climbing shoes because I can tighten them down nice and snug. The laces worry me a little because they seem like they could break if I tighten them too hard but I haven't had a problem yet(fingers crossed).



    The sole! Its a Vibram so it has to be good. It is really good at standing on small stuff and using the smallest feet possible. They are sticky on almost any rock and seem like they will last a while too. I have noticed that compared to other climbing shoes I cant feel the holds as well with my feet and that can sometimes lead me to not set my feet perfect but I think its just a new shoe type for me and I am getting better with them.



    I am usually a 10.5 US street shoe(i'm not sure what that is in European) and I got this in a 41 EU and they fit PERFECT.



    I think they will be a durable shoe and I expect them to last me a long time. So far I have good impressions. Do recommend.

    Perfect all-arounder

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    These honeybees are my all-around favorite shoe. From all-day multi-pitch sufferfests, to projecting that steep sport route that will get that girl to go home with you when you send, this might be the pinnacle of rock shoe innovation. I will continue buying these SOBs until they stop making them. I sent my best redpoint in a pair of Miura Laces.



    Comfort is very, very good once broken in. The lacing system is FAST and easy to adjust for a fine-tuned fit. The leather that makes up the bulk of the shoe is a great way to resist odors.



    Extremely sensitive for tiny edges, and grips exceptionally well on the smallest, slipperiest, greasiest limestone and granite.



    A very good bouldering all-a-rounder, but lacks the aggresive downturn of the miuras and the rubberized toe common to more modern bouldering shoes.



    The Vibram XS rubber is the stickiest stuff I know of, but wears very quickly. If I could change one thing about this shoe, it would be putting a more durable, less sticky rubber on it like Stealth C4 because I'm too weak for steep climbing and I'm also poor and can't afford a new pair every three months.



    Does well jamming cracks, and isn't terribly painful, but the tc-pro or mythos are the kings of crack.



    Overall, this is the perfect shoe, if you don't mind the missing toe rubber and the Vibram XS rubber. Get a full size smaller if pain arouses you, and a half-size if you're a wimp.

    Sport/Gym Machine

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    I sized these shoes down pretty agressively, and got the smallest shoe I could squeeze my foot into. They stretched somewhere between .5-1 size for me, they are synthetic lined so don't stretch as much. These shoes edge amazingly well, and are really STIFF...so for climbers that are just getting serious and venturing into the 5.11+ range, and haven't built up as much foot strength as the climbers that have been doing it for years...these are perfect. The stiffness of the sole lets you edge and stand on tiny foot holds. The slightly downturned shoe is great for vertical and some overhanging stuff (won't be as good as aggressively downturned shoes like the testarossa or the solution, but still pretty darn awesome). They've done really well for me sport climbing outside, gym climbing and bouldering. I didn't like them as much friction climbing on slab, but that has prob more to do with how i sized them. Overall this is hands down one of the best all around shoes out there, if it fits your foot, and you are looking for a workhorse that does a great job with 90% of the climbing you do...this is it. This is not the shoe the specializes in any one thing like overhangs or slab friction routes. Overall...I love it. CHeck out the review below, I found it useful.

    If the shoes fits... wear it!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    I love these shoes. If they fit your feet, you can't go wrong. I've got a narrow heel and wide forefoot, and they fit like a glove.



    Great for bouldering, steep walls, and anything else you throw at 'em.



    Rubber holds up well, and the last has truly lasted may years of abuse.



    Pricy but durable.

    all depends on how you size 'em

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:Runs large

    first off, I have F***ing long toes! Think Sasquatch with gollum toes, and you start to get the picture. These things edge and toe in like crazy, if you size them tight, but are good trad/crack shoes if you get them loose. IMO, you best off getting them tight, because the mythos are way better if you want a comfy shoe because they are designed with a flat, narrow toe profile they fit much more precisely in the toe box without scrunching your toes. I get them really tight, almost to the point were they are downturned, but not quite so they are prefect for thin, techy face climbing. My hiking/running shoe size is 14, and i started off with these in a 45, but used them for a month and they stretched too much for hard face climbing (their intended use in my case) but they were very comfortable and climbed thin cracks very well, but were still painfully for hands. I ended up returning them(with backcountry's amazing return policy) and getting a size 44, which was living hell to break in and are still pretty uncomfortable, but are prefect for 5.12+ single pitch face/slab edging. It was a pretty drastic downsize, but think it works mostly because of how how long my toes are and therefore how much they bend, maybe? anyways, they stretch a lot and are edging machines. work well on overhung terrain, but something with a more downturned toe would probably do the job better. great shoe for vert, and I highly recommend them.

    It's like cheating...

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:Runs small

    I have been climbing for a couple years now and as a guilty pleasure I have always climbed in my first pair of beginner La Sportiva Tarantulace shoes... they were just so comfortable I couldn't put myself through the torture of breaking in a new pair.



    After resoling them for a 5th time, I finally decided to try a more advanced shoe and was deciding between these and the 5.10 Anasazi. Both shoes are very well made, but the Miuras just fit my foot like a slipper. Climbing shoes are very subjective, but I found the 5.10?s to have a wider toe box, which caused them to shift slightly when I was edging. They run small... I am a 9/9.5 street and 42's fit perfectly when broken in.



    I initially wet them out and then climbed in them as long as possible for my first two weekends using them and they broke in quickly. Took me about 5 pitches to stretch them half a size. That said, they climb really aggressive and edge like a dream. These shoes let me comfortably stand on dime edges that I would have had to previously hold complete body tension to even get a few seconds on. It honestly felt like cheating the first time I climbed in them - lol.



    The area I climb in is majority face and all polished quartz, so I cannot attest to their performance on slab, but I did not have any trouble with them on the cracks I came across so all in all I am very happy with them. I hate to admit it, but I think my climbing has gone up at least half a grade from using these shoes. That said, they are not as comfortable as my old shoes so for long moderate trad lines I will go to back to my old pair.



    Overall... I would highly recommend them.

    Good

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:Runs small

    Got them pretty snug and gave them a good test at Red Rocks, NV. Sticks well to edges and smears great. Not sure I would want to be in these all day, but we did do 10 pitches and they were relatively comfy.

    A Great All-Around Shoe

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:Runs small

    I'm relatively new to climbing, but these are some of the best all-around shoes you can get. They have a nice snug fit that is perfect for the gym climbing that I mainly do. I've used them for a few hours at a time and they maintain that relatively comfortable snug fit. They are versatile yet technical enough for some of the trickier bouldering problems. If you can only have one pair of shoes this is the pair to have.

    The only shoe you need.

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    I've been been climbing in Miuras for about 10 years now. In my opinion there's no shoe that can beat these in terms of versatility. Sized correctly they're comfy enough for long routes while maintaining the precision for tough sport climbs and boulders. Though it lacks the burly heel of the solution, I've found it still hooks great.



    My feet fit Sportiva's really well (wide toes, narrow heel) and I've cycled through a few pairs of Miura VS, Katanas, Testarossas, and Speedsters but I keep coming back to these guys. With decent foot work the rubber will last you a long time and even sized for comfort they are sensitive and precise.

    serious weapons

      These are amazing shoes for every aspect of climbing. granted the break-in process can be painful, i found the best way to stretch these bad boys out is by getting the leather wet as well as wetting down a thin pair of socks, then bearing through the toe-squeeze for as long as you can hold on. do this in cycles of wearing/not-wearing for a few hours and the shoes should take the shape of your feet well. Once they dry you should be set to send!

      Great all-arounder

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit:Runs large

      I have climbed in almost every model of climbing shoe that Sportiva makes, and this is one of my favorites. I also currently own Solutions and TC Pros. Basically, while I can use any of these shoes for nearly any climbing application, I prefer to use the Miura Lace for outdoor sport climbing, Solutions for gym climbing, and the TC pros for long trad days. I wear a 11 US (44.5 EU) street shoe, but sized each of the models down accordingly:

      Miura Lace: 42 (snug, not excruciating)

      Solutions: 42.5 (snug, not excruciating)

      TC Pros: 43 (comfortable)

      Hope this helps!

      Is the sizing the same between the La Sportiva Miura and the Miura VS?

      Best Answer

      Hey pal, both are great shoes, but the sizing/fit between Miura - Miura VS are VERY individual.

      La Sportive created a whole new shoe when making the VS, they write "We pulled key design elements from the Miura and incorporated them into this three strap hook and loop closure system.. A P3 plateform.. The one-piece leather upper has a synthetic lining.. And is unlined under the foot.."

      I would recommend trying out multiple sizes, one friend bought his at a gear shop, sized too small, and really paid for it later.



      The majorty of my friends wearing Miuras own the Lace-Ups. From what I'm and told and read, the VS countine to stay downturned (P3 plateform), keeping the initial aggro feel they both have.

      Hard bouldering and overhanging maddness seem to be the VS speciallity, while the Lace-Ups Slingshot Rand and Powerhinge technology combined with a more broken in and sensitive feel allow for supreme micro edging and crack climbing.

      Where can I buy new laces? I've had mine for less than 4 months (ordered from BC on 4/20/14) and I love them but the laces are beginning to wear through. I want to make sure I have a back set of laces for when the day comes that they just rip. Anyone know where I can get some?

      How are these sized compared to the Velcro Miura VS?

      I purchased a pair of the XS and liked them a lot, but they were 1/2 size too big so I want to buy a new size, but the XS are not available in the size I want, so I'm considering the VS (Velcro Miuras) but need to know if they share size, fitment, & stretchability with the VS as I don't have time to do another exchange.

      Any other general comments on the similarities/differences between the XS & VS would be appreciated.

      Best Answer

      The VS are softer, slightly more downturned, and more suitable for bouldering and overhanging sport lines, whereas the XS excels on steep edging lines, precision footwork, etc. While I've never noticed a difference on the sizing between the XS and the VS, I would purchase both of those shoes for different types of climbing, and as such, you might want a different size in each of those--a tiny bit smaller in the VS, and a tiny bit bigger in the XS.



      That being said, climbing shoes are an extremely personal matter--my taste in shoes may be different than yours is, just as the climbing I am doing is different than what you're doing. I would try to see how some other people at the gym/crag are sizing their shoes, and get a sense of what your personal preference may be.



      Hope this helps!

      That does help, thanks!

      I realized I mixed up the models so I corrected the wording of my question slightly.

      I was able to find a size 44 of these quick-lace Miura's so I'm glad I returned the size 44.5s. I would definitely try the velcro versions in the future, probably at the same size.

      I'm in FL so pretty much all my climbing is in the gym or on artificial surfaces, these shoes seem solid in that atmosphere. Lots of precision footwork and edging for sure, and these shoes are great at it.



      Bottom line: I wear size 12 US and got these in a size 11 and they were ever so slightly big, the size 10.5 is perfect for me.

      Best Answer

      David I wear a size 12 street shoe and the size 45 fit perfectly out of the box! I would say if you want a nice performance fit get the same size you had in the Mythos. That's what I did and noticed more performance without pain. No break-in period really needed although I got caught in a rain storm on the last pitch of a climb and now they are truly broken in. I use these for anything from 5.7 low angle trad to 5.12 sport

      i just recieved a pair of these and was wondering how they are suppose to fit. their is an uncomfrtable hot spot on the tops of my toes were they press angainist the top of my shoes and gets worse when walking this might be because i am coming from the mythos which are completely . i can leave them on for about half an hour while sitting around before it starts to get painful. the heel fits a little loose so i am hesitant to go up a size.

      Best Answer

      more aggressive shoes like this are not going to be comfortable to keep on long if you buy them in a size appropriate for performance. my muiras are over a year old and i cant leave them on for longer than two or three sport routes in the gym. I am sure I probably sized mine tighter than you so I did have excruciating pain on top of my toes the first few weeks but that goes away and they are quite comfortable now. just give them time to break in and you should be fine.

      So I had my foot crushed and as a result...

      So I had my foot crushed and as a result of the surgery the top of my foot is slightly larger. I love how the Solution and Muira VS fit on my other foot but I can't get my bad foot into these shoes because of the webbing. I've been wearing Mammut Samurais (which I absolutely love but are discontinued) and need to start looking for a replacement. Does anyone know whether these have an "open" tongue section or if it is webbed like the Muira VS? Any other shoe with a solid downturn and adjustable tongue section would be a big help also! Thanks

      They are lace up shoes so as much you could loosen the laces is the most you can get your bad foot in it. The Laces do have a Knot in the end so the ends don't slip out of the eye-hole. Have you looked at the 5.10 Anasazi Verde's or the La Sportiva Kanta Lace?

      I am tying to decide between these and the pythons. I boulder inside during school and sport outside in the summer. I heard these are insensitive, which I hate, which is why I would go for the pythons. Also how aggressive are these? Some sources say very aggressive while others say flat. FYI I wear the mythos right now.

      Best Answer

      Yes, your going to want the pythons. I had the old version of the Miuras (older rubber formula and different logo) and feel that the pythons are the better shoe, except on long routes. Although like Alexander said, I've never heard anyone complain about the Miura.

      Miura:

      Start out slightly aggressive but flatten over time.

      My pair were decently sensitive, but now they updated to the XS Edge rubber, which I don't like at all.

      Pythons:

      Sized down they are pretty aggressive, but you might as well buy them in a comfortably tight size because of the X last thing which will tension the toe box as you toe in.

      They are very sensitive, and use the XS Grip 2 rubber which is much stickier in my opinion, but wears out faster.



      In the end they're both great shoes and will serve you well. So go with whichever feels best

      if you want the best of both... i hear the mago is pretty sick...

      If I wear a size 11 street shoe and a 42.5...

      If I wear a size 11 street shoe and a 42.5 (9.5) in the La Sportiva Nago, what size Muiras would work for me? I don't want to size down too tight, as these will be for all-around use as an upgrade from the Nago.

      How would you size these versus the Miura...

      How would you size these versus the Miura VS? I've tried on every shoe from La Sport imaginable, I know how they can vary, but the one thing I haven't tried is these.

      Mark,

      The good news is that these two are pretty much the same shoe. I would say the lace-up version is a little more flexible than the velcro, so if you want a more aggressive fit similar to the velcro, go an additional half size down and play with the lacing.

      Happy trails!

      How does the fit of the Miura compare to...

      How does the fit of the Miura compare to the Katana with velcro? I currently have the Katanas and want to get the Miuras, but I'm in Alaska for the summer and don't have anywhere to go try the actual shoe on. Would it be a safe bet to get the same size as I have now?

      Also, how do the Miura laces compare to the Miura velcro? Is it essentially the same shoe?

      I can't really say about the fit with the Katana, but the fit of the Miura and the Miura VS is similar, but the VS is more aggressively downturned. The VS is designed more for bouldering, whereas the Miura excels on almost everything. I've used my Miuras for pretty much anything, and they do it all!

      Any thoughts on the miura lace-up versus...

      Any thoughts on the miura lace-up versus the VCS? like in terms of comfort, performance, durability, any major differences really.
      Thanks

      I have the VS and the huge difference between Velcro and these Lace ups is the custom fit you can get from a lace up. You can really dial in the tension where its needed the most for your foot in this shoe But it is a pain for getting on and off quickly.

      As for comfort and durability? Well I have had mine for about 5-6 months and they are still going and thats with 3 days a week of climbing plus some weekend warrior climbing in Squamish. Comfort wise? Well for the first while they are a little uncomfortable but with lace up it is easier to custom fit it to your foot type.

      I find that the LAce Up is really great for big wall climbing, as where I see the VS being used much more for sport and bouldering. Though a heads up now, these shoes bag out pretty bad so get them uncomfortably small so that they still fit nice later on.
