These shoes are simply the best. I've had three pairs. In between I've had two other shoe types. One of which was the La Sportiva Solutions which are ultra aggressive. Yes, the Solutions climb harder for super technical things. For me, the Solutions are viciously uncomfortable and on easier climbs never let you relax. The Mythos climb almost just as hard and are very durable. I mean, like, wear them to the office comfortable.
I wear a size 12 - 12.5 in la sportiva running shoes and boots. My feet are giant, but skinny, so I buy the size 10 in WOMEN's of this shoe. The mens version of this shoe in this size are too wide for me.
I climb up to 5.12 sport and boulder V6 (if I'm lucky). Not including this because I think that's amazing ... just so you know my perspective.
The only reason I would consider another shoe is to get velcro.
