Sometimes there aren't as many footholds as we'd like; other times there are fewer than that. The La Sportiva Miura Lace Climbing Shoe has a technical advantage so we can get creative with our footwork. Its Vibram XS Edge can either crimp greasy micro-edges or something smaller, less-greasy off to the side. The Miura sports a moderate downturn ideal for both vertical and overhung climbs, and the aggressive asymmetry directs all the power directly to the toe for a precise performance. La Sportiva made the upper out of an 8-panel leather that stretches in key areas to conform to your foot's shape, and the slingshot rand around the heel helps the shoe keep an aggressive performance for a long time.
