La sportiva MiuraI've been through a few different climbing shoes on my quest for the perfect pair, from velcros, to slippers, to laceups. The Muira rock shoes are my most recent and I had them for about 4 years, so the time has come to decide whether I want to get another pair or try something new.
Starting of the aggressive profile of the shoe make it great for technical maneuvers.
I chose to get these in the lace ups because I have a bit narrower of a foot and I've always found that most velcro shoes leave me with too much extra strap dangling off the side.
When I first got this shoe I was doing shorter single pitch climbs which was fine but when I moved to northern Ontario and started doing multi pitch I started to find these were hurting my feet and I'd be taking them off during belays. I think that's for short technical climbs and/or bouldering these would be great I just have a hard time wearing them for long periods of time.
So I think I'll be looking for a new shoe maybe something with a less aggressive profile, but if you are doing short technical pitches or bouldering I think these would be a good choice. On a side note if you get these for bouldering you might want velcro, lace ups will be a bit tedious.
