User Review: La Sportiva Men's Miura
Break-in Period: 1-2 weeks
Price Paid: $200 AUS
I have been on the hunt for a shoe that fits my heel and so far the Miura is as close as it gets.
My first pair of climbing shoes was the Red Chili X Cube which had a heel that fitted me quite nicely but the shoe was 1-2 sizes too big. I later tried a Chilis again but super tight and due to the arch in your foot, the heel wasn't as effective anymore.
The DENTEX material the Miuras are lined with are real rough on your toes especially if you fit them super tight and lead to calluses.
The vibram rubber is no way as sticky as stealth C4 or stealth Onyx but the Miuras have a stiff sole which gives you confidence on little edges.
I'm a street size 9US and my Miuras are 37 EUR.
The break-in period was painful and long. Took a solid 2 weeks with plastic freezer bags on before they didn't hurt as much but I still have to take them off between problems.
They are a great all rounder shoe.
