Comfortable, solid performers
When we joined our rock gym nine months ago, I scoured reviews of climbing shoes on several websites. The consensus was that the Mythos are comfortable enough for all-day crag climbing, and still solid performers. The next time at the gym, I paid attention to what people were wearing, and we saw Mythos on many feet. My wife and I both bought these and have no regrets.
This shoe does everything well!
This shoes is great for beginners and experts alike. Super comfortable. One of the best shoes for crack climbing because of the narrow toe profile. Also great all around shoe for edging and smearing. I normally wear Size 10 (Euro 43) and have low volume feet. Mythos in size 42 fit well with toes totally flat for comfort and crack climbing. 41.5 had my big toe still flat and the other toes just slightly bent. 41 my big toe was just slightly bent and the others bent a little more. 40.5 fit tight with toes moderately curled. These shoes are all leather so I expect them to stretch quite a bit. Impeccable Italian workmanship. The price is a bit higher, but I’m told they’ll last longer, and you’ll get more resoles out of them, making them actually a better value. As with any climbing shoe, proper fit is very personal, and I don’t recommend buying them online unless you’ve tried them before. Disclosure: I work for a climbing shop that sells these.
The BEST climbing shoes
These shoes are by far the best I have worn. I have become a much better climber now that I can trust the grip on my feet 100%, and since these shoes fit my feet so well.
These shoes are the best for all day trad
These shoes are the best for all day trad. Have had many pairs of these and have had them resoled many many times. These shoes are expensive but they will mold to your foot like a glove. Inspect your shoes regularly and stop wearing them before you get to the rind otherwise, it’s a brand new pair for you!
This shoe is so comfortable, I can climb then get right back to belaying without taking my shoes off (yes i know climbing shoes are supposed to be tight) but these are just that comfortable. They’re also great for outdoor climbing (top rope and lead). BUT ON A DIFFERENT NOTE they are not the most aggressive toed shoe for bouldering. I’ve had mine for about 8 months and I wear them probably 4 times a week and the rubber on the sides started peeling pretty early, so durability is not the strongest but it’s fine. NOTE buy a half size smaller than usual, they stretch a little bit after breaking them in.
GREAT MID LEVEL SHOE FOR A GREAT PRICE!
These shoes have been awesome. They arrived quickly and fit perfectly. My old pair climbing shoes had velcro and after about a year I wasn’t able to get them as tight as I like, that hasn’t been an issue at all so far.
Who knew a climbing shoe could be comfortable?
I’m a casual climber who has worn these shoes for indoor only climbing for about six months.The shoe works well and is very comfortable. It provides the support I need when climbing, and unlike other shoes, I’m not dying to take them off after two hours of wear.
Made in Italia with pride.
I’m a 60 year old newbie climber. Took some lessons and spend 1-2 days in the gym on the wall or bouldering. The synthetic rental shoes I used the first time just killed my feet. So with that in mind, I hauled myself over to the REI and spent an hour trying on shoes. These were the winners. The reviews are accurate-the soft leather will stretch after 3-4 hours of climbing. So I bought one size down (7.5 US size) and by the 2nd day of climbing, the fit was tight, but I didn’t have the urge to yank them off after I came off the wall. The rubber outsole was stiff enough so I could stand on the smallest of toeholds and the sole was sticky enough so smearing worked well too. I’m pretty sure that wearing these on granite would trash the shoes in no time. Still, I won’t be ready for outdoor climbing until the summer and these will work well for now. Finally, the price at $ 135 initially seemed high, but then I spend as much or more for running shoes and they’re not made of nice leather.
As a beginner, I really like these shoes. I like the feel that the leather gives once it’s stretched out a bit. I went with the advice on here to size down. After the second or third wearing they have stretched and shaped to my feet. I went down a size and am note sure that was enough. They are perfect now but i’m a little worried they will keep stretching. Time will tell.
Comfortable climbing shoes, not-aggressive, perhaps a half-size bigger than other climbing shoes
Really great climbing shoes. They excel in comfort, wearability, durability and ease of taking on/off. They’re NOT aggressive shoes. There are definitely some small footholds and slab routes where I don’t feel 100% confident on with these shoes, but the advantage is never feeling like your feet are being pinched. Super comfortable climbing shoes. One downside is this pair seems slightly larger than other La Sportiva shoes I’ve had in the same size.
