/ Velco vs Lace Muiras
What are the major difference between these two shoes?
The lace ones can be found for a good 20 quid cheeper online over the velcro ones, is there a drop in performance?
They seem pretty much the same shoe bar the velcro?
I always found the Lace up generally more precise and better on overhanging because itīs a bit softer and itīs toeshape is somehow better.
The velcro doesnīt fit my foot at all while the lace up was/is great.
Guess I'll need to try them both on.
I have both lace up and velcro and find them very different. The lace is softer and more sensitive, less aggressive and no down turn. The vs is stiffer and down turned, love them on edges and the steep stuff. Both great shoes. Sure someone will have another opinion

Aye, I find them the other way round - VS is softer and more sensitive/smeary whilst the (lined) lace up is stiffer and more edgy.
Maybe its something to do with the sape of the toe box and out feet.
I use the vs on boulders and smeary grit, lace up on trad and lime.
If I was the OP I'd try them both, they are very different shoes rather than just being the same shoe with different fastening. Someone once told me the Miura VS is actually the velcro version of the katana lace, whilst the katana is actually the velcro version of the Miura lace but I don't know if that is true.
I personally find the Laces the best climbing shoes I've ever had, but I don't climb much radically overhanging stuff. I tried the Velcros on in a shop but didn't like the fit & feel at all.
