        Comments about LA SPORTIVA Python Climbing Shoes:

        Not being compensated for this review, I'm just a fan of LaSportiva shoes.

        5.10s and Evolvs just dont seem to fit my feet as well. That being said, I have LaS Mythos in a 41. and Miura VS (XS Grip2)

        The Miuras hurt my heels after a year of climbing in them, and I also realized I should have sized those down to a 40 to factor the stretch.

        When I bought these Pythons I initally bought a 39. That created 2 distinct hotspots, at the corner of my pinky toe-foot joint and around the toe-foot joint of my big toe and my big toe knuckle.
        I exchanged for a 39.5 and vertical life has been amazing. The heel cup hugs my heel so well. I love the suction sound when I pop off the heels.

        Don't forget to flatten the elastic part under the single velco strap otherwise mid climb you might notice some discomfort especially down towards the insole. I've been doing some hard work with these bad-boys...totally worth my $$.

        **I tried on solutions and the areas around my ankles are either highly sensitive or the Solutions are just a little higher volume. Given that I've played sports for 20+ years and never before complained about sensitivity in my skin or ankles I'll say the Solutions are for the higher volume foot and the Pythons are for the lower volume foot

            you do need to size down so that the shoe is very snug. it will stretch a fair amount. That being said, this shoe literally molds to your foot giving the best fitting climbing shoe i've ever had. super sensitive and great for overhanging climbs and bouldering. Definitely recommend.

            I wear a 10.5 in evolv (shamans) and I knew I'd have to downsize for these, but I didn't think I'd have to go down to a 7. It took me 4 orders to get the right size. Just beware that the heel won't fit right unless you get the shoe very small. Other than that, it's comfy, sticky, and fits to my foot well. Definitely worth a shot.
