Review by livextreme41 on Dec. 16, 2008
Great for bouldering and sport. Comfortable for 2-3 pitches as well. The most comfortable aggressive shoe i have worn. Simple on/off. P3 rand doesn't budge. They edge on a dime, smear really well for this style shoe, and heel hooks are solid, which i wasn't sure of with the velcro. Shoes are lined and have not stretched at all in my experience. I wear a 47 mountain boot and 45.5 in the miura's. I'll be replacing the rubber cuz these babies are made to last!
Thinking....thinking..... oh yeah... i have had the front seam wear slightly on the top of my big toe when i wear them for an extended period. Nothing a little tape doesn't fix.

I use 'em for bouldering and sport climbing - great for both! Three velcro straps = great fit & easy to take off at a rappel station :) , aggressive toe is great for edging, high rubber on outside of midfoot is great for jamming, high rubber on heel is great for hooking. All in all a great shoe!
I think it's just the shape of my foot, but sometimes it sounds like they're farting when I land from a bouldering problem... :)

This is a great shoe for those times that you need to go a little more aggressive but don't want to sacrifice the comfort of your warm up shoe. Primarily used for bouldering, these smear like Spider Man, grab even the smallest chips, and hold a heel hook with the best of them. Compared to some other brands I've tried, the Sportivas feel much better on a narrower foot, almost as if they were custom molded. Even with a super snug fit, you don't sacrifice too much comfort, as the lining is soft in areas around the toe box - where most of the pain is centralized in other shoes. I would recommend sizing them down for performance, as a smaller shoe isn't that uncomfortable right out of the box, and gets better over time. Lastly, on a purely inconsequential note, the Miuras don't seem to hold the funk that makes other shoes infamous room-clearers. Great fit, awesome rubber, easy on/off with the opposing velcro straps and non-offensive to sensitive nostrils...this pair will keep you happy and climbing hard for many seasons.

these shoes are great. their down-turned profile make great for toe and heel hooking. the vibram rubber is super sticky and the heel cup feels like its glued to your heel. velcro makes on and off easy between routes.
their last is a little flimsier than some of la sportivas other shoes like the solution and the testarossa, but its still kept its shape after about 3 years.

Review by toclimb on Jul. 19, 2008
great shoe! bought it for trad and multi pitch. Easy in and out at belays. edges well, smears well and jams well. everything one is looking for in a shoe. bought it comfortable. wear a 43.5 euro in mountain boots and bought a 42 euro in the shoe. heard through the grape vine that it will stretch about a half size.
the shoe is lined on the top and not on the bottom. i.e. turns the bottom of your feet yellow.

I have had these shoes for a little over a year now and they are just starting to show signs of wear. P3 platform is GREAT. I've mostly used these for bouldering and they've done a fantastic job of keeping my feet on for the past year. Due to all of the rubber it doesn't stretch too much, but I would still suggest sizing down as much as possible.
The heel is a little big (unless you have large heels) which is an issue for heel hooks and they're not the best feeling shoe on toe hooks.

I love these shows. I have had them for over a year and being my 3rd pair of shoes I have owned... They are the best.

Very powerful edging, a great high performance shoe. Fit great at size 11 (my street size) nice and tight, but not too tight. Will only hurt noticeably after hours upon hours of bouldering and TR in the gym.
Yellow coloring on the inside wears off onto feet, not a performance issue, just an inconvenience to walk away with yellow feet. Otherwise no complaints.

I have had these shoes for almost a year now and they are still holding up amazing. They are definitely worth the cost.
The velcro on one of the shoes is not sticking as well anymore but that can easily fixed.

Review by bwright on Jun. 14, 2011
Great shoes. They were a giant step up from my evolv evos which i blew out in 2 months, these lasted for 2 years.
The straps will evetually break and you can no longer tighten them. Although, it happened after they got resoled so about 2 years. It lasted for quite a long time.
Solutions, (but again it has a strap problem too)
