    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.

    Ballet Shoe For Rock

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love this shoe. This was my second pair of climbing shoes. I've bouldered and sport climbed in them and am super happy with how they feel and perform. I prefer them for sport climbing and bought some more downturned shoes for bouldering . These edge well and the pointy toe is great for pockets and they are stiff enough to support me if it's just the end of that pointy toe on a tiny hold. I think they excel for technical climbs. I feel like I can do some fancy foot work when I need to with grace and confidence on a route while wearing these. They do take some breaking in (they are leather) but feel better and better as time goes on. Stretched some, but not a ton. More like they conformed to my feet. I have no desire to seek out a different shoe for sport climbing, I will happily use these for awhile. In case it helps, my street shoe size is 7 (sometimes 7.5) and I wear a 37 in these. The fit is tight but not crazy uncomfortable or anything once broken in. I wore out the toe in my first pair but was lucky enough to find a gently used pair of the same size at a second hand shop in Carbondale, CO. I feel like the sizing of this new pair is the same as the first pair of 37's I bought. Climb on, ladies!

    I've tried on tons of different climbing shoes, but they all didn't quite fit the way they usually do with other people. These fit perfect (i wore them for the first time last night, and although they are tightttttt - i know they will stretch minimally). I tried these shoes on in several sizes at a local gym near me, and the fit is different with each shoe (ie: two of the same shoe sizes fit different ) . The 38.5 fit the best overall (just to note.. i wear a size womens US size 9 in anything besides climbing shoes ) . It is not as

    Bought for the outdoor season, planning to do edgy sport routes. I've been trying to break them in at the gym and they are snug! I would recommend ordering a size up from usual.

    These were my first pair of non-beginner shoes and I LOVE them. They helped me climb significantly harder grades, stay comfy through long multi-pitches (except for the occasional toe pain because I have 2 different sized feet), and are great for all around climbing. Not the best for roofs/super steep climbing, but that's why super aggressive shoes exist! Note: I don't like my shoes super tight because I am prone to stress fractures in my toes and the arch of my foot, but the 37 is just aggressive enough to provide support and work well on lots of different types of climbs.

    Great shoes!

    I love these. They're my first pair of legit climbing shoes. They took a bit to break in, but it was totally worth it.



    I wear a 7-7.5 street shoe, and I bought 36.5. I primarily use these indoors.

    Great shoes!

    First off, I have a ridiculously narrow heel that I have always struggled to find climbing shoes to fit (every heel hook rips them off). Unfortunately, these fell into that category as well. But, the shoes seemed to be classic La Sportiva awesomeness. The laces are nice since you can form the shoe more to your foot, so I was hoping I could wrangle them into working for me. Unfortunately, cinching them down to fit my heel meant it was pinching the top of my foot and made it hard for me to flex. It is hard to tighten only certain parts of the shoes via the laces like you can with other laced shoes. So, good shoes, but if you're trying to fit weird feet, maybe not the best option. Oh, and classic La Sportiva Sizing, I got a 40.5 in these (and fit fairly well if not a little too small), I normally wear a 8.5 in US Womens and my current pair of La Sportiva (Men's Miura Vs) is a 41.

    Super thorough review, Kira - thanks so much for these details! Sorry to hear these didn't end up working out, let me know if I can help you find a climbing shoe that works perfectly for your foot shape!

    Amazing.

    I adore my new Miura's - I've stopped wearing anything else. They were my second pair of climbing shoes after starting with a super neutral beginner shoes, and I find that I can climb significantly harder with the Miura's. I know, the gear doesn't make the climber, but I experienced a notable improvement upon using these shoes. I am traditionally wear a women's 6.5 street shoe and found a full size down a bit too small (I had to take them off after every boulder problem the first day I tried them) and the 37 is perfect. Aggressive but not too aggressive that I can't wear them for a long day of climbing!

    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.

    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
    • Height: 5'3"

    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!

    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!!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    it depends on what your toes are used to. if you've only climbing in flat, mythos style shoes, you'll probably want a half size up. if you're used to aggressive shoes too, your 37.5 or 38 would be good as these will stretch too.
