These shoes are the best! When I outgrew my last ones I refused to buy any others. Every time I go to the gym people look at them and say wow, I got to get those shoes. My climbing partner took one look and knew the shoes were for her. Took me about 15 minutes to break them in. They are incredibly comfy. As soon as you put them on they mold to your foot and you don't get any weird bumps or anything. They are easy to put on. Look really great and professional. Bottom line... they Rock!!
"Hate the stupid flowers, love the shoes."
These shoes are a total joy. I've worn the testarossas for years. I just bought these to be a beater pair for training days, but honestly, and I don't say this lightly, I think I might like them better than the testarossas. They hold their own on overhangs while performing slightly better on slab. Not to mention they're Velcro, which, lets all be honest, is quick and wonderful. I'm still keeping the testarossas for their aggressiveness, the laces when I need to really tighten down, and the psychological boost of all their flashiness, but I was surprised by how much I like the muiras as an all around shoe. La Sportiva just makes good climbing shoes.
I just love these climbing shoes... truly perfect for both indoor and outdoor climbing settings. These shoes allow you to toe in on the smallest edges that most other shoes would just slide right over, and they are so cute and comfortable!
My daughter loves these climbing shoes. Over all of the brands out there she choose these. She is an awesome climber and now she has awesome shoes. The form, color and the way they fit make them so easy to put on and take off. They are the best shoes for the climbing she does..............................
"Seriously the greatest shoe I've ever owned"
These were around my eighth pair of climbing shoes and definitely received the most initial use of any I've ever owned. The edge, heel, and toe have all remained in tact through four seasons of gritty sandstone. They are wicked comfortable and made me think twice about my previous conceptions about the durability of climbing shoes. It's just unfortunate that la sportiva feels the need to put flowers on them just because they are a women's shoe.
La Sportiva is the only brand I will trust when it comes to covering my feet for climbing, and the Miura is just a truly beautiful shoe. The downturn is perfectly aggressive, the edge is clean, and the leather allows the shoe to mold to your feet. I wear an 8.5 or so in street shoes, and I downsized to a 37.5. I plan to downsize even further for the next pair, but I like my feet to be numb. I do wish this shoe had the padded heel of the lace-up miura, but I prefer the ease of the VS. Word of caution: be careful with the velcro, they do break.
I absolutely love these shoes. I've been an avid climber for my whole life, and these shoes are amazing in both gym and outdoor settings. It's an aggressive shoe and you can toe in on micro-edges that most other shoes I've owned would slide right over. I've had my current pair for a little over a year and the toes are beginning to peel (slightly!) but I blame that on the excessive use of them in the gym, not the shoe itself. I will definitely be buying a second pair! (probably more than one to be completely honest)
The toe is AMAZING. They're pretty low volume for narrow feet and those three straps are great because make the shoe fit evenly on both sides. I use them both indoors and outdoors for sport climbing and bouldering, and they're great for everything. They smear like a dream and they're rad on slab. The best part is they were completely broken in after about three long sessions of climbing. I wear a street shoe size of about 10.5 and I bought these in a 38.They stretched just enough to be reasonably comfortable.The only thing I don't like about them is that they're white, which is a very silly color for a climbing shoe. Iv'e had them a month and they're pretty gross looking.

Bought these for my girlfriend, she jumped a grade just putting them on. She states they stretched a small amount, and asked me to talk about sizing. She wears an 8.5 in her street shoe and I bought her a 37.5 which is a 6.5. A full two sizes down. Tight fitting but not painful after break in. Highly recommend by a climbing girl.
