LA SPORTIVA MIURA XX

Climbing - - GEAR TESTED -

La Sportiva has re­vamped their clas­sic per­for­mance shoe the Miura with the help of Adam On­dra. Only sold for a year and pro­duced in lim­ited quan­ti­ties, the down­turned Miura XX has added Sportiva’s P3 Plat­form to help the shoe re­tain its shape over time; mean­while, the lac­ing sys­tem has been mod­i­fied to im­prove toe hook­ing. The XX re­tains the Miura’s asym­met­ric shape and pre­ci­sion edg­ing, adding in­creased in­tegrity. Our tester, who used them on 5.14 sport routes at south­ern Utah’s Cathe­dral, noted the “ro­bust heel,” which worked close to per­fectly, and the snug­ger fit. “Wow, th­ese things are tight,” he said. “Now, I prob­a­bly will climb like On­dra—fast and scream­ing!” $200; sportiva.com
