Excellent traction

The La Sportiva Miura VS uses a Vibram rubber outsole. The men’s version comes with an XS Edge sole yielding a sturdier platform. On the other hand, the women’s version is equipped with a Vibram XS Grip 2 outsole. It is a softer compound that renders a stickier performance.

Excellent underfoot support

This La Sportiva offering uses a 1.1 mm LaSpoFlex midsole providing underfoot support. It works with the brand’s very own P3 or the Permanent Power Platform. This technology is a technical randing system that helps concentrate power to the sole, delivering optimal performance. This feature also helps keep the downturned shape of the shoe. Additionally, it is unlined underfoot so climbers will have a better feel of the ground.
