      Comments about LA SPORTIVA Mythos Climbing Shoes:

      in the past 15 years I have had 10 pairs of shoes and I always end up wearing the mythos. unlined and laced to the toes so it literally molds itself to your foot after a bit, they stretch a bit w/time so go a little small. used on long trad routes, sport, bouldering and gym. they are great for all , amazingly comfortable and great performance. my idea of the perfect shoe. one downside; they are so soft beginners with weak feet/toes will get tired quickly.

        The Mythos is a great one-shoe-does-all. I use it in the gym, on single pitch sport climbs and alpine routes. It's a shoe that is comfortable, for a climbing shoe, and performs well.

        The best shoe I could buy

        Comments about LA SPORTIVA Mythos Climbing Shoes:

        I was having the hardest time finding the right shoe....they all seemed to hurt me above the big toe. When I tried on the Mythos I wasn't sure if I was asleep or awake. They felt more comfortable then my sneakers, and on the wall, they provide the performance to back up their hefty price. I wouldn't recommend them for bouldering because there is no overtoe, so you're limited on your level of skill. But on vertical ascents, I'm convinced this shoe cannot be beat because of its quality and most importantly, it's unbelievable comfort.

        The product met and exceeded my expectations. I found this shoe to be exceptionally good for edging as well as smearing. These shoes have also worked well on a wide variety of climbing surfaces; from the gym, to sandstone, to granite, this shoe performs well on all of those surfaces.

          pretty decent shoe, the only brand the fits my size 8 1/2 foot nicely. I use it out on new England rocks and it sticks well. Havent had it long enough to tell the durability of it but so far so good. The ability to crank down just a little more with the loops at the laces was nice. Good Shoe

                Comments about LA SPORTIVA Mythos Climbing Shoes:

                Like having the slight quarter size difference between the mens (bigger) and womens Mythos, to get to choose between having toes fully flat (to slice better into foot/toe jams on crack routes) or slightly scrunched up. I own both the mens and womens 41.5, and also even tighter-fitting and stiffer sport climbing shoes with toes fully scrunched up.

                      I hadn't climbed in several year and this shoe was a recommendation from a friend who's sponsored by La Sportiva. I couldn't be happier. The shoes are snug but comfortable. I would definitely recommend going down 1 size from what you typically by. I've been out a few times and can feel the shoes stretching.
