    Details

    The technical women’s shoe that tackles sporty overhangs and boulders.

    Stick to the most crimp-tastic routes when you put on the La Sportiva Women’s Miura Climbing Shoe and edge wart-sized footholds. The Miura’s high curvature and downturned toe give you more friction on the smallest holds or smears with the sticky help of Vibram XS Grip2 rubber. Shaped forefoot edges let you rest on tiny ledges between overhanging pitches, while the LaspoFlex forefoot midsole provides comfort during belays and longer routes. A synthetic Dentex lining prevents the leather upper from stretching, drastically reducing the necessary break-in time.

    Not for a starter w/ a faint heart

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Size Bought: 37.5

    These were my first climbing shoes but luckily I don't have a faint heart cause holy smokes these don't feel like a pair of sneakers!

    I heard these are better for people with a bit narrower feet, which I don't have but I decided to tough it out anyway and I literally had to tough it out the first time I wore these. They almost put me to tears.

    Thankfully after a few wears they are breaking in and don't starting hurting until I finish the climb (still definitely can't lounge around in them)
    The good new is that these things grip awesome! I was able to stand on footholds that the rest of my group couldn't which made up for my serious lack in climbing skills.

    The laces are bit of a pain but I think it's worth it for how much better the fit is. for reference I wear a 7 in street shoes and bought 37.5 in these.

    Great Versatile Shoes

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 37.5

    These are pretty great all-around shoes. I have only tried these indoors so I can't really give an opinion about climbing outdoors with these. Anyways, the Miura lace up was pretty good at edging and heel hooking on plastics. It's also great at smearing until the rubber started thinning out (also due to bad footwork). So I had to get them resoled recently. These aren't agressively turned down for bouldering or climbing overhangs/steep walls. I plan on getting the solution for climbing overhangs since the Miuras were a bit lacking when it comes to toe hooking. However I like the laces since it keeps the shoe tight and forms to my feet very well.

    When I first started trying them on they were painful (of course) during the break-in process. My left big toe kept rubbing with the leather bending in near the toe where the rubber meets. I just bent the leather up in order to keep my toe from hurting. But after awhile you get used to it and the shoe becomes comfortable after awhile like any other climbing shoes. Street shoe I wear some 7, 7.5, and 8 depending on the brand of the shoe (just for reference I wear 7.5 in Toms). I ordered a 36 from reading other reviews but it was way too tight for me and went to 37.5. But I thought the heel had a bit of room and maybe should've gotten 36.5 or 37. Unfortunately, there are no stores near me to test out the shoes in person so it's all trial and error.

    Did not know what I was missing

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 37

    Upgraded to the Miuras after I wore through the rand on my first pair of shoes, La Sportiva Mythos (bad footwork, shame on me). I love my Mythos, but the rubber on those was worn and slippery, and the lack of downturn and rounded toe was not ideal for harder routes. I was nervous about going for a shoe this aggressive, but my general strategy for expensive gear purchases is to go for the thing I'll want in a year rather than the thing that suits me now, because I know I will progress in whatever sport I'm doing. I'm so glad I went for these because I didn't realize until now how much edging power I was missing. I stick to things that I would have popped right off of before, especially on steep boulder problems, and I trust my feet on small edges 100x more.

    I have medium-high arches, Morton's toe, and a relatively slim forefoot. The shoe is perfectly snug, and feels great around my foot, especially when the laces are pulled tight (albeit in that slightly painful climbing shoe way). At first I was worried that the high back would rub my Achilles, as it was a little tight in that area, but it hasn't actually been a problem. They're also breaking in beautifully.

    I got a 37 in both the Mythos and the Mirua, and feel that this is the perfect size in both. My toes are slightly curled, but not debilitatingly painfully so. I need a break from the shoes after about an hour, but I don't mind walking or belaying in them, for the most part. I wear a size 7 street shoe (ex. my Chacos) and size 8 running shoe (Saucony).

    Short of providing a plaster cast of my foot and/or x-rays I probably couldn't give a more thorough description of the fit on these shoes, but I hope this helps other people figure out what size to get if they don't have the opportunity to try them on in person!

    Great Bouldering Shoe!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 36.5

    I tried these on at my local gym and I was recommended a size 36 for the best fit. I'm a solid 7.5 in street shoes (38 in UK sizing) and had a pair of Tarantulace rock climbing shoes that were sized 37.5. The 36 were tight with no dead space, however, the pain was unbearable. I ended up going with a 36.5, which was tight enough but also roomy enough to allow me to actually step on my feet. The 37 were just slightly too roomy in the toe box and in the heel. My feet are a bit on the wider side and the shoes have broken my feet in as well (which sounds bad I know but they don't call them climber feet for nothing). It took me about a month to really break them in but it was totally worth it. They fit well and are great edging shoes!!

    Ideal steep sport & mellow bouldering

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    These are my ideal steep sport & mellow bouldering shoe... this is my third pair of Miura's. They're aggressive enough to stick to tiny jibs, they edge wonderfully, and I don't feel like I need to rip them off of my feet as soon as I come down from a climb. Wouldn't suggest wearing them all day on a slabby multi-pitch, though. I wear a size 8/8.5 women's street shoe and purchased a 38.5 UK (7.5 women's), and I couldn't be happier with the fit.

    Sticky

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

    These shoes seems to be working really well for me. Its my first aggressive shoe after I busted through the toe of my Mythos and wanted something a bit stiffer for edging. I'm really excited about these shoes and feel like I can put a lot of trust in them. My only issue has been with a pain full break in and sizing wise. My Mythos fit like a glove and were a size 37. I wear a size 7-7.5 street shoe and after reading reviews bought a 36.5 in these. They were far to tight and I ended up sticking with a 37 in these as well. I'd recommend these for someone with a fairly high arch and narrow foot. Its a slim toe box, so don't get these if you have wider feet.

    This is exactly what I needed to know! I have the exact same shoe size as you, wear the Mythos in a 37, and want to add a pair of Miuras for the same reason. Glad to know that the same size will probably work well! Thanks :)

    The Best Shoe

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    I got these as a gift for someone who is an avid climber, and she says these are her go-to shoes. She has been climbing in these shoes for over 6 years, and she loves how they are good for everything. She can climb any type of rock, and she doesn't have to get them overly tight for them to stick. They are a great shoe!!!

    Versatile and comfortable.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 35.5

    I used the shoes a few times so far, and i really enjoyed them. I also own a pair of solutions & mythos(i love those as well).

    Relative to the solutions, the fit is a little bit more forgiving, they run a little bit larger, and the laces, while adding a bit of time to do up, create a more custom fit to your individual foot, therefore being more comfortable. The toe in the miuras is not as turned down as the solutions, and so they are a bit more versatile for walls too. Awesome shoe for training in the gym with a variety of walls, boulders and caves.

    Sizing wise, i own:
    solutions in a size 36
    miura in a size 35.5
    mythos at 35
    My street shoes are US 6-6.5; European 36-36.5 and my foot is a little wide, but low volume.

    Versatile and comfortable.

    Get across the roof with these on!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 34.5

    These are my second pair of climbing shoes, and I'm so happy with them! Much more aggressive than my other pair (La Sportiva Nago), but not too much -- just right. These edge like nobody's business, and you can smear to your heart's desire.
    I went down 1/2 size from the Nago's, since the Nago's now feel like street shoes in comfort. The break in period was painful, but worth it. If you're edging and working some good toe and heel hooks, you want to fill the shoe in, especially the toe box. Walking around in these is not fun, but when I point my toes, my feet are in perfect position, and I think that's what you're going after for roof routes and serious overhangs.

    Men's sizing:

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large

    For a comparison of sizing I usually wear a size 10.5 street shoe. I wear a size 42 TC pro which took a bit of a break in before they were very comfortable. I bought these shoes (women's miura) in a size 42 and they are a bit larger than a TC Pro 42. If I wanted something a bit tighter for thin edging I should have went with a 41.5, but the 42 will allow for foot swelling on long routes. I don't think they will stretch much because they are heavily lined. A lot less stiff than the TC pro and with a more pointed toe, this shoe is good for more sensitive climbing and pockets.

    so far so good

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

    I've had these about a month now, they were rough to break in but now that they are stretched a bit I am really liking them. They do slightly bother my heels and ring finger toe but they are great shoes, but the more I wear them the more comfortable they become. They are just aggressive enough. I ordered a 36.5 and I wear a 7.5 sneaker and 7 in heels. My other shoes are Katana's, 37, but they ended up stretching too much for what I wanted, I couldn't even heel hook unless the velcro was very tight. I also love the laces because you have more control over the tightness of the shoe. I have yet to tie my laces.

    Just aggressive enough

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

    I wear a size 7 street shoe and I actually bounced back and forth between the 36 and 36.5 for the Miura lace-ups. Ultimately, I decided on the slightly more aggressive fit (36) since they do break in decently after awhile and I think it's definitely made a difference for the better. They're great for edging, as well as heel hooks. They're super grippy and tactile. Basically, awesome for upping your footwork game. The heel can bite a bit in the beginning, but again, they break in pretty well just with use and movement. A great step-up shoe from the Scarpa Helixes.

    Comfy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 42.5

    As a guy you miss out on all the great climbing shoes girls get. These are the comfiest climbing shoes I've worn. Highly recommend these shoes to anyone.

    Everything I Needed!

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

    After wearing through my very first pair of climbing shoes ( an old pair of velcro Evolvs) I really wanted to graduate to something slightly more aggressive. After testing out the Solutions and finding them a bit too intense for my needs, I decided to opt for the Miuras instead and can happily say I am more than satisfied! The fit is fantastic. These perfectly contour to my foot, are snug in all the right spots but yet still comfortable enough for long gym sessions or outdoor sport and bouldering routes. The profile and curvature on these make them ideal for edging, and they will stick to just about anything. Overall, the Miuras are extremely versatile. Wear them for slab, overhangs, and just about any problem where you need more technical footwork. As far as sizing goes, I typically wear anywhere from a 7.5 to size 8 in street shoes. Because the Solutions are more aggressive, I was able to fit an 8 in those. However, for my Miura's I opted for 7.5 since I can get away with a snugger fit and wanted to allow room for them to stretch but still be tight where they need to be. Definitely my favorite pair of shoes I've climbed in so far and I look forward to getting plenty of use out of them this season!

    A Poem to a Great Shoe

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

    Ahhh muiras, how I love you. Oh let me count the ways...



    I love you on slab

    I love you on face

    I love you on overhang

    I love you when I have to wear you for way too long (order up a 1/2 size)

    I love you when I need a good edge

    I love you when I need a good smear

    I love you for your soft, supple lining that sits right below my ankle, but doesn't go too far into the foot bed

    I love you for your quality, hand-stitched craftmanship

    I love you when I get in a bad situation, because I know I can always depend on your quality rubber

    I love you when you are old

    I love you when you are new

    I love you in the winter

    I love you in the summer

    I love you!!!!



    The end.

    Edges like a champ--great for Squamish!

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

    Checked the Miuras out on the recommendation of a friend I really trust. Needed a shoe comfortable enough for all day crack climbing but still secure on tiny edges. These (so far) are fitting the bill fantastically. Only complaint is that the top of the heel cup cuts in pretty hard to the back of my ankle. Well, at least it keeps my heel from slipping! This is the only reason I gave them 4 stars instead of 5. Hoping this issue will be fixed by more mileage and break-in. Otherwise fairly comfortable so far--have done a few long routes without taking them off at belays and wasn't dying by the end. Aaaand, whatever discomfort the heel causes is still well worth it considering how well these shoes edge. A little security for some of the delicate footwork in Squamish is worth solid gold, if ya know what I mean!

    An excellent intermediate shoe choice.

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

    My favorite style of climbing is technical slab/face and this shoe has been a perfect choice. I don't have any complaints actually, the edging is fantastic, I've climbed on extremely small and delicate feet and the Miuras are perfect.



    If you want a step up from a beginner climbing shoe, and especially if you're getting into technical and small footwork, but want something that isn't extremely aggressive yet, these are your shoes.



    Since I bought them (about 10 months ago) I've climbed at the gym 3 days a week and taken 6 outdoors trips on both sandstone and limestone and one sole is beginning to tear in the toe. I do think that they are very durable considering how much smearing and edging I do. My last shoes were La Sportiva Nagos and it took about 4 months before quarter-sized holes formed in both toes.



    They take some breaking in but nothing unusual or unexpected. Once you're used to them they are decently comfortable.

    My go-to shoe.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I cannot stress how much I love these shoes. I've gone through multiple pairs over the years, actually.



    My street shoe size is 7-7.5 women's and I wear a 36 which was slightly painful at first (meaning that for the first month, after bouldering for about 20 minutes I had to take a break and take them off for a bit) but they stretch out and conform to your foot quite well.



    I find them great for delicate footwork, and aggressive enough for bouldering. I find them comfortable enough for sport climbing as well. Great all-around shoe.

    different than I expected

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    My old climbing shoes is a Miura - Men's. Being a woman I thought this would be more comfortable. I do not know if it's because I was already used to my old Miura, but I found this new one a bit weird. Maybe because it's still new, but it bothers my ankle.

    Best edge.

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

    These shoes have the best edge. They are a very good all around shoe. Once they are warn in, they feel perfect and perform great. I used the water method to break these in (wet with warm water and wear until they are dry) and they perfect. As with all La Sportiva shoes, their rubber and edge will last a very long time. You will definitely get your money's worth.

    I am a 8.5 street shoe and the 38.5 are the best fit, for me.

    Unanswered Question

    I wear size 37.5 in la sportiva tranchtulace (7.5-8 in street size shoe). It's a very very snug fit for me and I would definitely not like to go smaller. Pretty much the perfect size. Would you recommend this size 37.5 or 38 due to the arch? Is there a large significance between the two types of shoes on sizing?

    Unanswered Question

    Does anyone out there have 2 pairs of Miuras, a smaller size for bouldering/some sport and a larger size for multi-pitch/when you want to wear them all day? I'm looking to do this and I'm not sure if I should go up a half size or a full size from my bouldering Miuras to achieve all day wearability.

    Unanswered Question

    Any difference in sizing between the men's miura lace up and the women's? I usually wear a 42 in the men's version but was thinking I would maybe prefer the women's as I have a low-volume foot and narrow heel.

    Hi, will have you have size 37 in stock...

    I'm a guy and wear mens Miura lace in size...

    I'm a guy and wear mens Miura lace in size 39. After 2 month break in the shoes fit almost perfectly, and I love the shoes. I am interested in trying the women's version for the grip rubber and a padded/smaller heel, which is a huge problem with me and almost all climbing shoes as I have a small heel. What size should I get in the women's?

    Hi - I am interested in buying the La...

    Hi - I am interested in buying the La Sportiva Miura lace version and would like some advice on the sizing. I wear street shoes 7.5-8 and running/hiking shoes 8.5. Any advice on which size to order?

    if this is your first pair, you'll probably end up with a size too big. in my experience. i had to size down extra after converting the size from american to euro. like hayden said, they will stretch, so i would suggest size 37 (women's size 7). they'll be tight, but you don't want slop in an aggressive shoe.

    I wear a size 38 Men's Evolv Talon G2s...

    I wear a size 38 Men's Evolv Talon G2s (they don't stretch) and a size 37.5 Women's Anasazi LVs. I normally wear the Talons because of the snug fit. I also wear a 36.5 Women's La Sportiva Raptor (trail running). Would anybody have suggestins of which size I should get in the Muiras?

    Hey! These are a less aggressive version of the VS, I recommend trying them on at a local retailer.
    But, I would suggest getting a size 36 or a 35.5 for a snug fit so you don't get a floppy heel. These aren't as down turned as VS.
    I wear a 42.5 in street shoes and I wear a 38/38.5 in the mens Miura.

    I have tried on a friend's men's version...

    I have tried on a friend's men's version in a size 36 1/2, which fit pretty snug, but they were comfortable. The weird thing is I wear a US women's size 6 in street shoes and 6.5 in sneakers and hiking shoes. I've read many reviews that one should size down as much as two sizes. I can't imagine my foot fitting in a size 34. I am also a bit confused on the sizing. Is this Italian sizing? Because I thought a 36 is equivalent to a 6, and according to the La Sportiva size chart a 36 is actually a 5.5. I am pretty confused :). Any suggestions on the sizing for me?

    How is the sizing of this shoe vs. the...

    How is the sizing of this shoe vs. the Mythos? I have a 38.5 in Mythos that has stretched out and is now a bit too big, so I probably should have size down to a 38 or 37.5. So how do these fit vs. Mythos? Thanks!
