La Sportiva Miura VS Climbing Shoe
The La Sportiva Miura VS is the slightly stiffer version of the Miura Lace, as well as being better suited for wider feet.
Unlike the original, the Miura VS features La Sportiva's P3® rand system that makes the shoe slightly stiffer and less likely to lose its shape after stretching. Aside from that, the shoe is mainly the same. It features a slingshot rand and a Powerhinged sole that, when small edges are weighted, prevents the shoe from stretching in the front half of the shoe to keep power and control on tiny holds. An aggressive downturn does mean it can still hook onto overhanging holds and slot into pockets, however!
Many people wear these shoes tight for technical sport climbing and high-end bouldering, but others who have worn them looser say that they perform just as well for crack climbing, trad routes, and big wall climbing. They have a leather upper with a synthetic lining (none under the foot however so as to not reduce sensitivity), and so will probably stretch about half a size.

Vibram XS Edge™
Rubber compound built for maximum performance on micro holds and extreme edging. This formula uses an improved plastic deformation resistance that ensures the utmost stability, rigidity, and support on footholds in hot or cold weather, as well as generally increasing durability.
P3® Permanent Power Platform
After intensive abuse, downturned climbing shoes can start to lose their distinctive shape. La Sportiva’s P3 rand system prevents from this happening so your shoe maintains its powerful profile, permanently.
Full Features List
• The Slingshot Rand connected to the Powerhinge under the shoe increases edging performance
• The Slingshot Rand encapsulates the shoe and prevents lateral stretching to keep the foot's power drive forward
• Powerhinge is a small hole cut into the sole to make sure the shoe only stretches in the back and not the front on small edges

TRY ANY CLIMBING SHOE BEFORE BUYING THEM. After spending over 1h trying all the shoes in store, this is the one that fit me the best. I have a slender foot and this is the only shoe that felt tight enough also around the heel. Used extensively indoors and a couple times outdoors, no complaints whatsoever. I climb about 10-15h a week and they yet to show a sign of overuse after a few months. On top of that, they also became quite confortable to keep on even in between climbs
Para mi el mejor pie de gato, ya que se puede utilizar tanto para grandes escaladas, boulder o deportiva. Este gato no deja indiferente a nadie. Se adapta perfectamente al pie y tiene muy buena precision, tanto en desplomes como en adherencia. Al principio está un poco duro y quizas duelen un poco los pies, pero despues va como un guante. el envio fue excepcional, a España solo tardo como 15dias en llegar y encima en perfectas condiciones. seguro vuelvo a comprar a traves de esta pagina.
Good for all kinds of rock
I bought the shoe more or less one month ago. Having read a lot for this shoe I was convinced that it is one of the best choice for climbing indoors and outdoors, Boulder and sport routes. And it didn't disappoint me. Indeed it is an all time great shoe . It's really stable and and I can step on edges that I couldn't imagine that it's possible. I compare it with my old saltic shoe and I understand why it is worth it to pay this amount of money to buy it. I climb 1.5 year so I definitely suggest it to someone that wants to feel an upgrade to their climbing performance.
As for the size my normal shoe is 43-43.5 (EU) and I bought 41 but I think that I could have bought 40.5.
