Use: aggressive climbing
Break-in Period: weeks
Price Paid: $145
Pretty comfortable for an aggressive shoe. Great toeing & edging, good for boulder problems, overhangs, toe-hooks.
Not impressed with the stickiness of the rubber; I've blown quite a few feet on technical slab problems. The back of the shoe can produce some pain on the achilles tendon. Mine lasted me a year and some change.
Overall, I recommend them!

Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
In La Sportiva's line for over 10 years, the Miura is the perfect tool for performance footwork whether it be on slabs, vertical, or overhanging steep rock. The high tensioned slingshot rand is tied into the powerhinge on the sole so that when small edges are weighted, the shoe stretches in the back half of the shoe and not in the front. This allows you to stick on the smallest edges you can find or imagine! The multi-paneled lining gives you the perfect fit and the speed lacing system laces up in a cinch.
The La Sportiva Miura is for climbers that demand the highest level of small foothold performance from their climbing footwear. This well-rounded shoe can excel at anything hard rock climbing, power edging, pockets, Yosemite granite or bouldering problems.

Stick to the most crimp-tastic routes when you put on the La Sportiva Women's Miura Climbing Shoe and edge wart-sized footholds. The Miura's high curvature and downturned toe give you more friction on the smallest holds or smears with the sticky help of Vibram XS Grip2 rubber. Shaped forefoot edges let you rest on tiny ledges between overhanging pitches, while the LaspoFlex forefoot midsole provides comfort during belays and longer routes. A synthetic Dentex lining prevents the leather upper from stretching, drastically reducing the necessary break-in time.
