Rated 5 out of 5 by from The unicorn of climbing shoes [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So happy that I snagged these. I have narrow feet and super high arches so I'm tough to fit- but most of the time I don't even feel the need to take these off when belaying. These felt amazing right out of the box, took virtually no breaking in and are perfect for anybody looking for versatility vs. a specialist shoe. I prefer this lacing system style over the alternatives since you can loosen them all the way down to the toes when needed. Bonus points for being a badass looking shoe- I get compliments on them every single time I wear them. LOVE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you like comfortable shoe Mythos are it! If you want aggressive not it! Very comfortable NOT Aggressive shoes i.e. toes are Not pointed down like a ballerina shoe. I have tried Miura & now own Katana. Every time they say aggressive the shoe is shaped pointed down.,,Fit: I wear 8.5 street and bought 39, it was little snug but stretchd 2 be perfect. Bcause of the pointd toe & goofy heel, miura & Katana size for me was 40. My foot does not "fill" the heel cup in Miura & Katana.,,Cons: Laces are very long. Because of the leather shoe can get stinky.,,,,Moosejaw custy srvce is fantastic as usual. Best stickers on package ever, My UPS guy is cracking up each time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At the end of a long day, I love nothing more than to put on my jammies, cuddle up in front of the T Oh, yeah, uh, climbing. I use them for that too. And my friends keep trying to steal them and buy me new shoes because they say my feet shouldn't be so comfy.,,,,These shoes are great for all day outdoors, multi pitch. Once you get above the 5.10's, you are going to want something more aggressive. I bought these too big when I was an uninformed beginner. Since then they have stretch a FULL SIZE! So buy them really really painfully tight, or you will be sorry later when you can't use them anymore. I would suggest them to semi-experience climbers who want a second shoe for longer days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent trad shoe I just bought my second pair of these. They've allowed me to comfortably climb all-day trad routes without ever having to take my shoes off. I think they're great in cracks and solid for smearing. I found them to hold up well after resole (R&R in Boulder) as well. I wear a 7.5 women's street and a 37 in these shoes. They do stretch quite a bit when you first break them in. For comparison, I also regularly use the women's lace-up Muiras for shorter/sportier climbs and Evolv Elektras in the gym. I climb outdoors 2-3 weekends/month but am only climbing 5.9 and lower in the Mythos.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buy these! (but be smart about sizing) I bought these as my first pair of shoes back in December for my first big multi-pitch trip. I wore them straight out of the box (in theory, so stupid) but they were SO COMFORTABLE! I've basically torn them up big time since then but they've held up as well as to be expected. My one complaint is that they have stretched--a lot. I'm partially guilty, though, as I'm not the best at changing shoes immediately after a climb.I bought a 37 which really required me to jam my foot in there initially, but the next pair I buy will likely be a 35 or maybe even 34.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Size DOWN! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I actually wasn't able to keep these because of the sizing. I have the finale's as my typical shoe, which is a 40-1/2. I read the reviews on this shoe and everyone said to size down. So, I ordered a 39-1/2 and it was still way too big, especially if it stretches out as reviews say. But I will say, they're beautifully made and extremely comfortable, even though I ended up returning them. Can't comment on the performance though, but I've only heard good things, other than the stretching.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, Durable and Highly Effective I've owned all kinds of climbing shoes and the day I bought my first pair of La Sportiva's was the day I realized I could never wear anything else. These shoes truly illustrate the basic principal that is "buy right or buy twice" (or in some cases buy 3 times or 4, ect). Like all of La Sportiva's other climbing shoes, the Mythos exceeds expectations in quality, durability and comfort. The thick sticky rubber soles last longer than any other shoe I have ever destroyed and will keep your toes on the rock!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super-comfy (just buy 'em tight)! comfortable + effective? is that possible? are these really climbing shoes!??! like the other reviews said, buy the smallest size you can squeeze into - they'll be tight at first but after a few climbs, they'll feel like a dream. a dream with marshmallow clouds and unicorns!! ,,,,oh. and the lace-around-the-heel design keeps em nice and tight around your ankles. and the little vents keep your feet fresh (well, as fresh as one could hope for after a long day of climbing...) awesome!

NOTES and FIT INFO
La Sportiva footwear is built and offered on European half sizes, which are smaller increments than US half sizes. This gives them four extra sizes per size run, and ultimately gives you a better fit.

As a general rule soft shoes like climbing shoes require a tighter fit, or about two to three sizes smaller than your street shoe size.

La Sportiva recommends you fit your trad climbing shoes one to two sizes under your street shoe size.

La Sportiva offers a lot of lasts, and each offers a different fit and feel. Remember to factor in potential stretching.

Unlined slip-lasted shoes tend to stretch a bit more than lined shoes, or about one full size.

Lined shoes stretch about a half size.
