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.

Where can I buy new laces? I've had mine...

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?

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!

How are these sized compared to the Velcro...

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.

Responded on

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!

Responded on

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.

Sticky!

The Mirua's do the job in gripping on slabs. Vibram keeps you going up even when you feel you there's no feet to step on.

Sticky!

sizing comparison, I'm looking for a sizing comparison to either the sportiva mythos or solutions? I'm not looking for a performance fit but a comfortable technical shoe size that won't go sloppy. Any help is appreciated!

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

The classic technical shoe

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

I have used the Muira as my go to lace up shoe for 10 years now. I have used other shoes at times but these retain their grip and stiffness and coarse grip better than anything else I have tried. Also, their aggressive shape and deep heel pocket make them ideal for thin crack climbing. I will probably buy them again when my current pair eventually wears out.

Do'er of all things

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

I have used this shoe for over two years now from climbing in the northwest, Moab, and northeast and I have loved theses shoes. They are comfortable, edge pretty well and smear better than I thought they would. The sole wears out kinda quick in my opinion but once resoled they were good as new. The shoe also heel hooks and toe drags fairly decent when used bouldering. Def would suggest these to anyone wanting a good all around shoe.
