User Review: La Sportiva Men's Miura VS
Use: moderate gym use/outdoor use
Break-in Period: one month
La Sportiva has done it again. This shoe is ultra aggressive, with a firm but comfortable fit. they make a huge difference when i climb tough routes, i can stand on tiny jibs and i don't have to worry about slipping off. It has a really solid heel that i can depend on 100%. I can climb harder than ever before with these on. They are great for gyms and outdoor.
If your feet are still growing, i would recommend getting a 1/2 a size larger than your normal climbing shoe size, because these are pretty tight. they loosen up after a month of moderate use in a gym (once-twice a week). but they're still tight.
They keep their arches for a long time, and you don't have to worry about replacing the rubber.
if i am climbing something really long (or climbing different routes for more than 2 hours), i have to take them off to let my feet stretch out.
Overall, these are great shoes for someone who is ready to step up their level of performance. Dependable, solid, and aggressive.
