The patented Mythos lacing system lets you get the perfect fit. The soft unlined leather upper adapts to whatever shape your foot is and it is great for all day multi-pitch routes where your feet tend to swell. The Vibram® rubber rand is perforated to allow for stretch and comfort. This is the perfect shoe for crack climbing with its low profile toes, flat fit, and the overall neutral round shape of the shoe.

 

• Ideal terrain: Crack climbing, face climbing and big walls

Review for MYTHOS
I have had the same pair for the last 16yrs, this was when they were purple and dyed your feet purple for a while. i have had them resoled about 8 times due to lots of days out a year. i have only had a few different types of shoes before finding mythos. i love the comfort of all day multi-pitch routes with these shoes. i highly recommend having a pair in your bag.

Review for MYTHOS
I have had these for about 17 years. Bought these too when the Mythos were purple. Had them resolved many times. Tried a few different shoes, but this one will get you to the top! Snug, light and comfy. I can boulder or climb all day in these shoes. I'm glad they still make them, now my wife can have a pair too. These are awesome shoes, grab a pair or two :)

I have used the same pair of these shoes in the Ruth Gorge of Alaska, new routing on the alpine granite of Montana, and crack climbing in Indian creek, Utah. A high performing, versatile, and comfortable shoe.

Review for MYTHOS
I am fairly new to climbing and while using "one of the other guy's" Shoe, it had seemed like my progression stopped, especially on smaller edges and all smears. I upgraded to the Mythos and noticed an immediate improvement, which helped my confidence more than anything. I do not bounce my heel to check for grip on those smaller holds anymore because I know the Mythos will just go!

Review for MYTHOS
The La Sportiva Mythos is an amazingly comfortable climbing shoe that feels almost like a moccasin yet performs well on traditional climbing applications (indoors and outdoors). I really appreciate having a pair of Mythos climbing shoes for days when I want to train on the indoor big walls or play around on boulders (outdoors). I use a lace up for indoor and outdoor bouldering. I highly recommend the La Sportiva Mythos for outdoor crack climbing and indoor top roping. A note on sizing. I tried several sizes before selecting a size 44 (11.5) for overall comfort. Initially, I tried size 43 and found them uncomfortably tight. A more experienced climber may like to size down a full size or size and a half. I am climbing in a pair that matches my size in a running shoe.
