Would buy them again

I've been climbing for a year now and I've had these for about 7 months now for indoor climbing and bouldering. I have an extremely narrow foot and my heel/achilles tendon area looks almost straight up and down, so it was important that these were narrow enough and wouldn't dig into my ankle. These met both requirements.
I usually wear a size 10 street shoe and I got a size 41 (9.5). They were a tiny bit too tight when I got them, but they stretched out and now they fit perfectly. I can wear them for 2 or 3 hours, walk around a bit, and still feel fine in them. Compared to other shoes I've worn, these are perfect and I will most likely buy another pair once these are worn out. Overall, they match other people's reviews of them that I've read.

Responded on

La Sportiva climbing shoes run 2-2.5 sizes smaller than your actual US size. According to the sizing chart on the Miura, I would be a 40. This is far from true. For example, I wear an 8.5 US, but am rockin' a 6.5 US (37.5 Euro) Miura. I guess it is a personal preference, but in the Mythos, I am wearing a 5.5+ (36.5 US). Because this shoe is leather, it WILL stretch between .25-.5 in size and will mold to your foot, so size down a half size if you can. The shoe is mildly painful right now but will break in to be perfect. This is not an aggressive shoe, meaning, it is not intended for overhanging and tiny crimpy climbs. I would definitely recommend it for multi-pitch climbs, sport or trad. Hopefully this helps you make your decision!
