The La Sportiva Women's Miura has been a longstanding favorite for climbers looking for a versatile, yet technical climbing shoe. After their initial break-in period, which can take some time, the Miuras are very comfortable. They are made with a softer, more supple sole than our award-winning La Sportiva Kataki. We recommend the Miura to climbers who have been at it for a little while and want a high-performance all-around shoe. From smearing to edging, the Miura is a top-notch performer, especially for granite climbing. With their shape and cost, we suggest them as an upgrade shoe, rather than one for those just getting introduced to climbing. For a less expensive, first model that still provides the support and semi-aggressive fit check out the Butora Libra or the Mad Rock Lotus.
For 2018, Sportiva has given the Miura a makeover. It now comes with some minty green highlights and graphics around the laces, as seen in the photo above. Fear not, though - the things we love about this shoe (namely, the performance!) have stayed the same.
