La Sportiva’s new Miura VS coming soon

Author: No Comments Share:

I cannot wait to get my hands on a pair of the new La Sportiva Miura VS velcro shoes.

The lace-up Miura’s have been my shoe of choice for the past several years, so I’m eager to see how a velcro version stacks up.

I’m encouraged by the product description:

Velcro lace up version of the Miura model, enriched with a number of innovative technical solutions. It keeps the lace up modelâ??s exceptional characteristics, adding new high-tech elements as well as a quick fit thanks to three velcros. The upper is made with a tubular construction. Arch support with P3 technology which ensures the support of the shape by avoiding natural wear and tear of the materials and guaranteeing maximum performance through time.

Has anyone seen these in the wild yet? If you’ve tried them, please leave a comment with feedback.

UPDATE: Schmoubouldering has some negative initial opinions on them and Mountain Gear apparently has them in stock.
