The La Sportiva Miura is the classic, ultimate all-round performance climbing shoe, perfect for climbers operating in the mid to high grades.

Born in 1997 the Miura continues to be a very popular climbing shoe to this day, which is saying a lot as very few climbing shoes are in production for this amount of time. This popularity stems from the shoes tension and its edging capabilities, making for a technical shoe that is best suited for climbing on small edges and pockets, such as those found on limestone, granite and volcanic rock.

What about the shoes tension? The rubber rand that stretches around the shoe is highly tensioned, and is linked into the "Powerhinge" on the sole. When you put weight through your foot on a small edge any flex is contained to the rear of the shoe whilst the front of the shoe is kept in place, giving you a great deal of trust and support when on that small edge.

What about the rubber? The sole is made from Vibram XS edge. As the name would suggest this is a rubber that is great for edging, as compared to other rubbers it has a greater resistance to deformation over repeated uses.

Anything else? The multi-paneled lining gives you the perfect fit and the speed lacing system laces up in a cinch.

The Miura are an absolute classic in the La Sportiva Climbing Shoe range and are a great choice for intermediate and high level climbers, looking for a stiff, versatile technical climbing shoe.

The laces

The shoes are good but after only three weeks, one of the laces is already broken. I’ve notice something when I got the shoes but I didn’t imagine that it was going to break to quickly. I was expecting a really hard laces, one of them is perfect but the other ones already broken.

Perfect for limestone

I bought these shoes for sport climbing, most of which I do in North Wales. I've found the edging stability to be phenomenal. These shoes can stick to matchstick edge indefinitely. The only potential downside to their performance is a degree of heel discomfort as tension is transmitted through the length of the foot. This hasn't prevented me from climbing consecutive pitches but for easier multi-pitch I might choose a more forgiving shoe. As well as limestone sport climbing I've also used these shoes on vertical hard sandstone. Once again the edging ability was extremely useful. These aren't the most sensitive shoes so for lower angle grit stone slabs a softer shoe would be preferable, but the Miura is great for exploiting tiny features like pebbles. My street shoe size is usually 43.5 or 44/UK 9 or 9.5. My La Sportiva Cobras which I use for bouldering are a snug 41. I opted for a 42 with the Miura which has worked out great. There is zero dead space but my toes aren't bent to such an extent that I get hotspots on my knuckles (an issue I have with my Cobras after long sessions). The lacing system really allows me to sinch them down when climbing at my limit then loosen them off quickly at the anchor or for easy pitches. I'd recommend this shoe for anybody climbing on a rock type with small footholds who like a reassuringly stable platform. Think limestone or slate. As a dedicated bouldering shoe I would opt for something a bit more sensitive and modern, but I really can't overstate what an excellent sport climbing shoe this is.
