The Miura from La Sportiva has been one of the most popular climbing shoes on the market for over 10 years, likely due to it's versatility and reliability. The Miura has a performance fit with a highly asymmetrical shape, combined with a flatter last, which makes this shoe an excellent choice for technical climbing on terrain ranging from slabs to overhanging steeps.
The Vibram® XS Edge sole provides unparalleled support, which allows you to utilize tiny footholds; along with deformation resistance for durability during long days of climbing. The Miura also features La Sportiva's innovative powerhinge sole cutout to control and minimize forward stretch, as well as a slingshot rand to transfer power efficiently to the toes for edging power.
While the Miura has technical features and a performance design, its lace up design and Dentex lined leather construction allow the shoe to break in and mold to your feet for a snug, yet comfortable fit. If you want a true performance do-it-all shoe, the Miura is the easy choice.

This shoes does everything well. I've climbed everything from multipitch 5.4 slab in New York to 5.11 overhangs in Red Rocks with these on. I resoled my last pair 3 times before I lost one and needed to get another pair. Almost all my friends have a pair of these shoes, and it's amazing how many ads and pictures (many of them not for La Sportiva) have the pros wearing these shoes while sending hard stuff all over the world. I second Dave and D$. These things are awesome.
This shoe should be an easy choice for any climber; if it fits your foot then buy it. It will perform really well and will make you climb harder. As the previous reviewer D money said it is simply the best shoe ever. If you don't believe D$ or me why don't you ask Alex Honnold or Tommy Caldwell, or the wealth of other pros who climb hard in these shoes.
