Description

Miura is synonymous with hard climbing.

From freeing hard aid lines to sending cutting-edge boulder problems, the La Sportiva Women's Miura VS Vibram XS Grip2 Climbing Shoe has been there, done that, and will gladly do it all over again. The aggressive shape and sticky Vibram rubber combine with the Slingshot rand and Powerhinge system to produce a shoe that crushes super steep routes and technical face climbs with equal aplomb. Even better, you can crank down the triple hook-and-loop straps when it's time to get serious and quickly pop the shoes off after your burn.

  • Durable leather uppers with a Dentex lining provide comfort and a snug fit (lined leather shoes can stretch up to a half size depending on how tight you fit them)
  • Women-specific last shape is deigned to better fit narrow foot profiles
  • Triple hook-and-loop straps lock your foot into the shoe and provide easy on and off between burns
  • Vibram XS Grip2 sticky rubber provides secure traction on a wide range of rock types, angles, and plastic
  • High asymmetrical curvature and an aggressive downturned profile allow the Miura VS to excel on steep terrain and toe into precision pockets
  • Slingshot rand and Powerhinge system provide the edging power required for dime edges and technical face climbs
  • LaspoFlex midsole with P3 Power Platform Technology helps the shoe retain its aggressive shape even after a long winter in the bouldering gym

Heel hook for days

Heel hook for days

Posted on

Even though my shallow heel doesn't fill the Muira heel cup, I have zero problems with cranking down hard on them in a heel hook. The triple hook and loop straps keep the Muira's secure on my foot!

aggressively wonderful

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

I purchased these the fall of 2013 and talk about a noticeable upgrade from my Evolv Elektras. After 2 1/2 years,I was ready to change up shoes since my climbing level was increasing and these are now my favorite pair of climbing shoes. I had tried some other aggressive Evolvss but they did not fit my feet right. I just ordered my 2nd pair of Muiras for the outdoor season :) And I love the velcro! These are great shoes for bouldering & sport climbs (including overhangs)

Aggressive, stiff and precise

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

The Straps:
- I am a HUGE fan of velcro. I like the easy on and off ability.
- The velcro of the ladies Muira feel extra strong and supportive on my foot.

The Rubber:
- Sticky rubber you can trust. Say, you're climbing in Leavenworth and all you've got to work with is a tiny crystal of a foothold - no big deal. All you gotta do is take that fantastic Muira edge, stick it on that crystal and push down real hard. That toe isn't going anywhere ;)

The Edge:
- My little scenario above pretty much says it all. GREAT edges.

The Heel:
- The heel cup is too big for my heel so I deal with a "squishy heel"
- Note, this has NOT hindered my ability to throw in a good heel hook (I really like heel hooks).

Extras:
- I personally found that my Muira's did not stretch. They pretty much stay true to size, though they did mold to my foot upon break them in
- Yes, breaking them in hurt. On that note, they are a stiff shoe, they are neither "bendy" nor soft
- I experienced a bit of discomfort in my achilles while breaking them in.

Overall, a great shoe for bouldering especially when you need precision.

i like them too!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

My girlfriend has these and loves the strap system and the partial inner sock, combined, it makes you one with your shoe. i got to climb some routes in them too and personally loved the feel you have in them. solid shoe with great shape, grip, fit, and feel.

Thank you La Sportiva!

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

These shoes are awesome! They're fairly stiff to begin with, but they mold to your feet once they're broken in so they fit like a glove. Awesome for minuscule toes and will smear anything!

I've found La Sportiva's sizing to be a little strange, though once you find your size you won't be disappointed! I wear a 34.5 in these, a 36 in my aggressive Scarpas, and a 5-6 street shoe. Get them tight, they'll stretch out at least a half size.

Confidence Booster!

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

This shoe not only edges well and toes anything, it fits perfectly and gives shape to my foot for optimum control. The Vibram rubber is super grippy-sticky so I don't have to second guess on schmeering and tough slab problems. I'm hooked for life!!!

Onto my second pair...

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

Love these shoes - they edge the crap out of anything I want and really shine on vertical-to-overhanging routes. The three straps really help to get the fit really dialed in - although after a good deal of thrashing (6mo-1yr depending on frequency of use), the toe box can get a little bit squidgy.

Forefoot is fairly generous - I have small, high volume, high-arched feet and La Sportiva seems to be the only thing that actually fits (which is funny, because every other bit of technical footwear that I own is Scarpa). The heel can rub a little bit, but hell, I yank them off between climbs and can tune out the sensation while sending. Heel fit is snug, which is what you want when heel-hooking (I actually slipped out of my first pair once, which sucked).

I have a size 5 foot, wear sz 21.5 ski boots and the 35's fit like a dream. My first pair of 35.5s broke in to the degree of sloppy, so I downsized. The few week break in period was totally worth it. I will definitely be getting this pair resoled instead of outright replacing them when the time comes!

Worth the Wait

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

I climbed out my "beginner's shoes" until they were slippery and stepped up into the Miura's. I wanted to replace my zero performance shoes with an all around great climbing shoe and the Miura's are definitely it. The down turned toe feels a little awkward at first, but after you get a few climbs in they feel amazing. These truly are awesome shoes, super comfortable, extremely snug, and awesome performance ( straight out the box they will literally stick to anything). Im really excited to break into some new territory in these shoes.

Great Shoes. Love em.

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

This was my first pair of aggressive climbing shoes, and I'll totally get another pair once these ones wear out. The rubber stays stucky for a long time, but I've noticed the toe start to peel a little bit (though it hasn't affected my climbing, so it doesn't bother me too much). I usually wear a size 10 street shoe, but my Miurias are a size 9. I like my shoes tight, and I have narrow feet-- and these shoes are perfect for that! The velcro is just as tough as the rubber on the sole, and allows me to keep them nice and snug on my feet. 3 straps might seem like a bit of overkill, but it's truly perfect. It is pretty hard to walk around in these shoes after I get off the wall, so I just take them of, and they're so easy to put back on! But seriously, they feel great on the wall, and I can honestly say that they help my climbing immensely.

Goldie Locks would be proud

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

Sometime you just don't need a Solution-like downturn. Sometimes you need something more sensitive and aggressive than a lace up. The Miura VS is what Goldie Locks meant by: this is just right! The Miura VS is an ideal amalgamation of what La Sportiva is great at: narrow and secure heel cup, custom Velcro cinching, quick and fairly pain-free break-in period, and just enough toe edge to be powerful on any route. I am a rock solid 37 in La Sportiva climbing shoes. My street shoes run a standard 7 and I feel that a 37 is tight enough to be effective but not too tight that I am not cursing out loud when I put the shoes on. Rock on and climb hard!

Nice shoes.

Nice shoes.
