Why We Like The Miura Lace Climbing Shoe

Sometimes there aren't as many footholds as we'd like; other times there are fewer than that. The La Sportiva Miura Lace Climbing Shoe has a technical advantage so we can get creative with our footwork. Its Vibram XS Edge can either crimp greasy micro-edges or something smaller, less-greasy off to the side.

The Miura sports a moderate downturn ideal for both vertical and overhung climbs, and the aggressive asymmetry directs all the power directly to the toe for a precise performance. La Sportiva made the upper out of an 8-panel leather that stretches in key areas to conform to your foot's shape, and the slingshot rand around the heel helps the shoe keep an aggressive performance for a long time.

Not a big fan of the new version of these. They used to be probably the best all around shoe on the market. Now they're closer to an aggressive bouldering shoe. The sizes are different from the old version too, they're sized down smaller now. I went w/ my normal size 42 and ended up having to get them soaking wet every time i used them just to get them on my feet, well after the break in period. In conclusion, you're better off going w/ the katanas. Don't waste your money unless you've tried them and know for a fact they're what you want.

In my experience these are identical to the previous version except for the color change. Might be worth another shot… maybe you got a defective pair?

amazing shoes

Familiarity:

These are my favorite shoes for sport climbing and hard trad. Very aggressive and stiff, great for standing on small foot holds. As with all aggressively down turned and stiff shoes they're not great for comp-style gym problems. I wear a 13 in street shoes and got these in a 45.5 for that hurts-so-good tight fit.

Slightly aggressive all arounder

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Pull these out when I want something a bit more aggressive for steep routes and tiny toe holds. Comfortable enough where I don't want to rip them off as soon as I'm off the route.

If I order the wrong size shoe, can I return them for the right size?

Hey Levi! You can always return any unused gear from Backcountry for a full refund as long as you have the shoe box they came from and any tags and such. Let me know if you need any help with that process, or help finding other shoes that fit you well.
