I bought these for my belayer friend. As we was using my shoes (Katana La Sportiva) when his shoes arrived I had to tried them.What can I say, I love La Sportiva. This miura shoes are 1/2 size bigger than mine, still I felt them a little bit small. As I said befor I love La Soprtiva but for me Katana fit much better on my feet.
Pretty agressive out of the box but the P3 last doesn't do its job as advertised. Which is fine with me. They lose a good bit of downturn as you use them but they don't get as flat as say the Miura lace ups. They edge really well and if the heel fits you, you can heel hook all day. The toe hooking ability (or lack thereof) is my only gripe but you can be creative with the strapping and get by. These shoes rock.
I have been climbing with this shoe for about a year now, and I couldn't be happier. Aggressive toe and nice point make it great for climbing in a cave, and the sticky rubber goes around the heel unlike some cheaper shoes. I wear these shoes pretty tight, but there is a gap at the back of the heel, which can sometimes slip if the shoe is not secured very tightly. Overall, great shoe, I see a lot of other climbers love it, and I do too.
"One of the Best Hard Sport/Bouldering Shoes"
These guys excel in hard sport and bouldeirng. The downturned profile and asymmetric shape make them excellent for edging and toeing and the slingshot rand and P3 system keep them powerful and downturned after a long time. Velcro make easy on and off, but the velcro wears out after a while, but easily replaceable/repaired.
really good on wall/rockthey tend to leave a bit of a spaec between the heel and the shoe.some people donwt like it and feel it's loose. I don't mind it. the ruber of the heel is strong and thick so heel locks are easy, and it's really tight.the velcrow is bomb-proof and strong.so much better than strings.I use them 2-3 time a week (indoor+outdoor) and they last around a year in good shape
