I have two pairs of these. One at 44 and one at 43.5. I wear an 11 1/2 or 12 street shoe in US sizes, so I am sizing them down significantly. The 44's are really comfortable and don't pinch my feet at all. I wear them when I am climbing in the winter and need blood flow in my feet. The 43.5's are great when I am climbing at my limit.
The toe is great for small pockets, but not downturned so much that I can't smear, they edge really well, and they are sensitive. After the soles wore out the first time, I got them resoled with five ten rubber and they were even better.
I also have a couple pair of Katana's which are similar shoes. The Katanas are a great shoe when I am climbing with beginners and am going to have the shoes on for a long time, and be climbing easier stuff. The Velcro lets you adjust them to be sloppy when you are on belay. Oddly, on slabby stuff the Miuras are more comfortable than the Katanas.
