sherbertwrote a review of La Sportiva Miura VS Vibram XS Grip2 Climbing Shoe - Women's on September 4, 2016
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Everyone raves about La Sportiva so when I first started climbing years ago I got the Mythos. Since I move slow (but climb fast go figure) all the laces were tough, and very long since laces come in 1 size and my feet are small. I thought the Muiras would be too aggressive for my flat feet (not true) so I got the Blue Katanas, which were my first favorite climbing shoes till I got Muiras. I have wide, flat feet, and they are not too aggressive, maybe because they are slip lasted. My board lasted shoes (boreal ballet gold) makes my pinky hurt after a long day. The Muiras are saved for when I need to send something. I have a size 33 and 3 pairs of size 34. 33 is a bit too small... 33.5 is also too small.... (but for some reason 33 is ok in Muira and not Katana) and 34 is perfect. All of them I have in "Ice" which I prefer to the Blue one. I find the shoe may stretch a bit, but my feet also swell a bit when climbing so the fit should be spot on when I first buy it.
This "favorite" is not because it's my only climbing shoe... I have scarpas, five tens, boreals, evolve, all types. I like many of those other ones too, especially five ten for trad. Even though I have 20 styles of climbing shoes, I'm gonna stick with the Muiras and Katanas for sport.
