Miura, Miura on my feet... which of these climbs shall I defeat?
Let’s talk about La Sportiva Miuras!
The La Sportiva Miura range of climbing shoes vary from high precision machines to the most versatile climbing shoe that can fit well into any climbers shoe arsenal. With both men and women fit, climbers have a velcro strap and lace up option.
The Miura Lace comes in yellow and black for the men’s fit, and grey and white for the women’s. The women’s shoe fits lower volume feet than the men’s style and also has extra padding to make it comfortable enough to wear for a full day at the crag. The men’s style has a deeper heel cup and it slightly higher volume than the women’s. The Miura laces are awesome for everything from slab to slightly overhung walls, excelling on vertical walls with thin edges, The shoe with time and wear will stretch about 1/2 a size, giving you the most comfortable high performance pair you may own. Adam Ondra himself sported the Miura Lace up on the Dawn Wall in Yosemite!
Miura Laces will run you $160 a pair, with all RCF members enjoying a 10% discount
Here’s Climbing Magazine’s review on the women’s Miura Lace: http://www.climbing.com/gear/review-la-sportiva-womens-miura-lace-ups/
Men’s Miura VS sports the same yellow and black motif while the women’s older model sported a white and black flower pattern that has been recently replaced with a sharp electric blue. The triple velcro straps gives climbers custom control on the fit of their shoes, giving a slightly different feel to the lace up. The Miura VS is a slightly more asymetrical down turned Miura, perfect from anything vertical to overhung and sticking on sharp edges. North America’s very first 5.14 route, To Bolt Or Not To Be is best climbed with the Miura VS because of it’s amazing ability to stick on the smallest of edges! Miura VS are $170 without tax.
While stock lasts, Women’s Mirua VS are 20% off at RCF!
