      Comments about LA SPORTIVA Women's Mythos Climbing Shoes:

      it took me 20 pairs of trial and error to find these almost 2 years ago, they have become my best friend. I have strange feet/toes and have hard time fitting into toe boxes of most climbing shoes without excruciating pain and when i found these i fell in love. I've climbed all day in them indoors and out and never feel the need to take them off, they are comfortable and versatile, haven't had trouble climbing anything in them, they stick well and edge even on tiny holds and smear great. They are like slippers once broken in and very adjustable, even after year and a half of wear they can be made as tight as needed. Everyone i know that owns them loves them. Highly recommend giving them a try.

        Comments about LA SPORTIVA Women's Mythos Climbing Shoes:

        You don't need to have painful feet to get a good fitting shoe. The lace up style lets you adjust the fit just right. While the lacing structure is a bit complicated and cumbersome, once you get the fit dialed in, you can leave it alone. I especially like the ability to adjust the ankle tighter for a more customized fit. The ankle doesn't ride too high on the achilles like lots of shoes do. I have a wider foot and wear a 7 1/2 street shoe and got the size 7. I was tempted to follow the advice of others and get a very tight fit by downsizing another 1/2 size and am SO glad I did not. I do have a tiny bit of toe length space, but with the ability to tighten the ankle and snug up the shoe laces I have experienced no foot slippage nor have I had any trouble staying on tiny holds. I can climb better without having to worry about painful feet.

          Comments about LA SPORTIVA Women's Mythos Climbing Shoes:

          I actually purchased these shoes for my wife. These are her fourth pair of climbing shoes over the years and she couldn't be happier. We did some multipitch climbs this weekend in Joshua Tree and she was amazed by the comfort. The innovative lacing that goes around the back of the heel provides a customized fit. I don't believe they are as precise as some of the other more aggressive shoes, but I think having comfortable feet go a long ways towards good footwork and a more enjoyable climbing experience. The shoes are customizable enough to loosen for comfort on long moderate climbs and difficult descents, and cinch down tight for crux pitches and overhanging sport routes.

            Comments about LA SPORTIVA Women's Mythos Climbing Shoes:

            These are the best all around climbing shoe, since buying the first pair years ago, I haven't bought anything else since. They can be worn for 12 plus hours at a time when making a push on a long climb, they are comfortable (as comfortable as you can be) when crack climbing, yet decent enough friction for face climbs...although I admit I don't face climb much so there are probably better suited "face" shoes. Note- they aren't lined on the inside, so they will stretch about 1/2 size when they fit to your foot after wearing them.

              Comments about LA SPORTIVA Women's Mythos Climbing Shoes:

              These shoes are super-comfortable. They're so soft and supple that there was virtually no break-in period -- they fit beautifully right out of the box. The heel is a bit looser than the La Sportiva Nagos, and I wonder how much they're going to stretch out as they age, but the lacing system should make it possible to dial them in. They're probably not aggressive enough for many climbers, but for me, doing long days of multi-pitch trad routes, they're perfect.

                I've tried several La Sportiva and 5.10 shoes ranging from aggressive to all-rounders; but I keep coming back to the Mythos. For me, they are the best shoe on the market for multi-pitch and alpine climbing. Comfortable enough not to want to take them off at every pitch, but without sacrificing performance. They are pretty versatile; I often use them for sport climbing as well - my feet perform better when they are comfortable.

                I climbed at indoor rock climging place few times and I just stated to climb at Gunks, NY.
                It took just one day to break in and it is so comfortable to wear.

                Honestly, I purchased there were so many reviews. But... now I know why... =)

                Shoes size: 6.5
                Hiking Boots or running shoes shize: 7
                I got this one size 5.5 (36)
                Perfect.

                Onr thing...
                Shoes lace is too long... but I can work on this.

                Thank you, EMS and La Sportiva..
                U just made me easy to start "climbing".

                  I have a high arch, freakishly skinny feet, and narrow ankles. I have always just put up with the pain of blisters from the back of the shoe being so loose and rubbing. These are great since you can adjust quite a bit for the ankle!

                  Probably could have been able to go down one more size (wear a size 8 street shoe and ordered the 38.5) since they stretch but I'm not one to torture my toes and cramp up every 30 seconds.

                  Decent friction and no change in my footwork from my last pair of shoes. Satisfied with my purchase!

                    I have only used for bouldering in the gym.
                    Great for narrow feet. Fits like a glowe. I wear 7.5 (US) and got it 37(EU) whole size 1.5 smaller, it fits great. I am afraid they will strech so much that I should've gotten size 36(EU).

                      Since the EMS store near me didn't have my size in stock, I took a dive and ordered a pair without trying on the actual size I wanted-- unthinkable for climbing shoes! I was thrilled when I tried them on and they fit like a glove. I feel like I've owned them forever. My feet do not cramp up during climbs; I already feel a great improvement in my ability as a climber. Zero complaints thus far!
