for the La Sportiva Women's Miura VS Climbing Shoe
The Muiras are an great all around sport and bouldering shoe! They fit my feet perfectly with no hotspots. The heel hook is good but if I need a super precise one, then I prefer the dragons. I wear size 7 street shoe and 35.5 in the muiras and once they are broken in they are a dream. My only complaint is the top and bottom cloth straps and strap loops wear quickly and break, the leather strap does not break though. I avoid this by duct taping them as reinforcement and its worked pretty well. Don't know why they don't make all the straps leather!
Worn this shoe into the ground. It fits my foot perfectly with no hot spots. Great for sport and bouldering. Heel hook on this shoe works well in most situations, but I prefer the dragons if I need a super precise one. I'm a size 7 street shoe and wear a 35.5.
switched from miura to miura VS and so far so good. street size 7.5. have flat feet that are wide at the toes. wore a 38.5 in the miura so decided to go to a 38 in the miura based on the feedback that i saw online. sizing was perfect... can't imagine getting half a size smaller.
The positive: I never thought a pair of shoes would change the grade I could climb in the gym, but these shoes definitely did that. I've tried a lot of shoes, different styles and brands, but these are the only shoes that raised the bar for me. Bottom line: They are my go-to shoes for tough routes. But I don't wear them for comfort.The negative: Initially they were quite tight, fitting like a glove and I had to take them off after every climb. They've loosened up (and held up well) after a few months of climbing, but, while the heel is still tight, I'm developing corns on my toes and I still take them off after each climb. Definitely a sign that they are too tight. So, I'm experimenting with a half size up. And note that the lace-up version (non VS) seems to come up higher on my heel so I put moleskin on the back, which fixed that. I still love them and will buy them again.
I used these shoes till they fell apart. They have an aggressive toe and heal. They fit real tight and serve their purpose. I like them more for bouldering than using on long routes or even slab. I wore a hole in them after about a year. I thought about getting them resoled, but since they were my first pair of climbing shoes I thought I'd branch out and try another pair. I got the Blackwings and I'll give a review to compare them!
I have been climbing for the past 6 years. Though I had to take a hiatus I'm back in the game and wanted a new pair of climbing shoes. After a lot of research and debate of these shoes or those shoes (competitor shoes) I went with the la sportiva, I have never tried out this line of shoe so I was excited. The day they arrived I went and tried them out, I'm a little rusty so my toes need breaking in. The shoes on the other hand did everything I wanted to do and more, they got wonderfully and I have wider picky feet. I can't wait for my toes to break in and get full use out of these shoes. I ordered my street shoe size in the climbing shoe as well and voila! Perfect fit. I will not be returning this product and perhaps when they wear out from excessive use I will either repair or straight up buy another pair! Love love love
Awesome agressive shoe! The sole of the shoes are so nice and sticky. Perfect for taking your climbing to the next level. Will for sure keep using this style. Velcro makes the shoe really tight and supportive.
I bought these shoes as an upgrade from my evolv elektras, and man they are a huge upgrade. These shoes are extremely down turned, and when first broken in extremely uncomfortable on your feet. But worry not after about ten climbs these shoes really start to mold to your feet, and start being a source to be reckoned with. Superior edging on these shoes, I can literally stand my entire body weight on a ledge smaller than my pinky. My one complaint about these shoes is that they are a bit wide on the ankles, as i do have rather slim ankles.
I've always had a hard time finding shoes that fit in general. I broke four bones in my foot growing up and they're about a size different at lease and one is narrow, one wide. Needless to say, it's not easy. These shoes broke in perfectly, but were stiff enough to keep climbing in for months. I had Miura lace-ups for four months or so and they never really broke in. The rubber comes up higher on the toe than the VS and crushed my toes. In the VS of the same size the leather came down farther and was softer on the toes even in an aggressive shoe. The climbing was even better with the great fit and could go another half size down from my previous pair of Katanas. I climb techy face to overhanging roofs in these. The toe is flexible enough to smear easily, but the shoe is snug enough to crank on heel hooks.
Traded up to these bad boys from my clapped out 5.10 moccasyms.Love the velcro- feels like I have a much more secure fit and have more confidence in things like heel hooks. I've been using these mostly for bouldering and think they're great on jibs and for edging. Definitely size down for a tighter fit. Overall, a great shoe.
