    Find your happy place on a big rock while wearing the climb-it-all Mythos.

    Tighten the around-the-heel lacing system of the La Sportiva Women’s Mythos Climbing Shoe and get an all-around, precise fitting shoe for climbing any rock in the canyon. The soft, unlined leather upper surrounds your foot with enough stretch to allow foot swelling during long multi-pitch routes, while the perforated arch and Dry-Best lined tongue help wick and vent excess foot sweat as you climb. For long belays and rests on big walls, the full-length LaspoFlex midsole adds strength and cushioning so you can reenergize before the crux. The Mythos’s medium-curved shape, pointed toe, and excellent edges allow superior grip on footholds of any shape or size thanks to the 4mm Vibram XS Grip2 outsole.

    Great for everything

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    This shoe is not very aggressive which makes it very versitle and comfortable. I would recommend getting this shoe if you prefer long, sustained routes, especially trad, and crack routes. This shoe has a tough leather upper that will last a very long time and overtime will shape to your foot ever so slightly. Overall this is a great shoe for those climbers who like to get outside and get up high on the walls.

    Love these shoes so far!

    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 41.0

    Love these shoes so far! Recently took up climbing and have used them mostly indoors, but a few times outdoors as well. Fit great and are as comfortable as I would expect for climbing shoes. I typically wear about a 10.5 in women's for athletic shoes and the 41.0 fit great! Have stretched a little, but not much. I have narrow feet and the laces are great so I can still get a snug fit.

    Rad shoes that don't hurt

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: 38.5

    These shoes are the bomb. I've been wearing them 3-5 times a week for the past month and a half, and I have only great things to say. I mostly top rope in the gym. I've only been climbing for about 2 months, and I'm doing 5.11a/bs, so I'm not sure about the edging factor of these shoes. I slip sometimes on TINY footholds, but that could very well be my technique. However, they smear pretty well and I have no problem with the routes at my level both indoors and out. They are the most comfortable climbing shoes I've ever tried on. I have long big toes that curve up a little, so I have a hard time with downturned shoes (i.e. the pair of Katana Lace sitting in my closet that I never wear). The Mythos are great because they work well with the geometry of my foot. The laces allow for a precise fit, and the rubber grips to the wall fairly well. I will say two things:

    1. The laces are WAY too long! I have to double knot them so I don't trip. Backcountry, is there a shorter lace option?
    2. The leather does stretch a tiny bit, order smaller than you think. I wear an 8 shoe (39 in birkenstocks), and I got a 38 1/2 in this shoe. I honestly have no idea if my katana laces are the right size cause I've only worn them 7-8 times (They kept skinning the top of my foot! These shoes were too painful for me), but the pair I own is a 39. I don't really believe in the whole "let's wear climbing shoes 5 sizes too small!" thing. Mostly because if I do, I can't climb. It hurts too much.

    Bottom line- buy the shoe. You won't be mad.

    SO comfortable and grippy

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:Runs large
    • Size Bought: 35

    These are the most comfortable climbing shoes i own. they break in in literally in minutes.

    what i love about them:
    1) long, adjustable laces - you can adjust the entire foot lenght, including the heel. You can also wrap and tie the laces all the way around the mid bottom of the shoe if you want it to flex more downward as needed
    2)they are very grippy and flexible. They definitely give you full on confidence.
    3) so amazingly comfortable. You can wear them for hours.
    4)you can wear them with socks on cold days thanks to the adjustable laces/heel

    Sizing: my street shoe is a european 36.5/US 6.5. I have the mythos in a 35.
    For sizing reference, i also own:
    Sportiva Solutions in a 36
    Sportiva Miuras in a 35.5

    In the photo i just climbed up to Lizard Head summit at 13,113 feet, Telluride CO.

    SO comfortable and grippy


    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size

    For sizing I went to La Sportiva's website and read their climbing shoe sizing suggestions, and they fit perfect. I wear a size 7.5 street shoe and bought a 36. I climb mostly sport, and am working my way towards trad and more multipitch so I was looking for a comfortable yet practical shoe. I believe this is the one :) I've used them a good amount and love them, I'm confident they will continue to shape to my foot throughout their life and I will probably order another pair of these when the time comes. Great Shoe!

    Great shoe for multi-pitch, but...

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:Runs large

    These shoes are great for long multi-pitch days when you need to be in them for 7+ hours. Comfortable enough to wear on a downclimb and at all of the belay ledges, with just enough grip to keep going up. They stretch a lot over time, so order smaller, and push through to the comfort zone... eventually they feel like form-fitting slippers you can climb in.

    I've gone through 2 pairs of these shoes, and plan to keep buying them!

    The only downside is that they seem to fall apart really quickly compared to my other Sportiva shoes around the shoelace area. I've had them resoled twice, and they keep on for a while, but ultimately don't last.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Excellent shoe, sizing has changed

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    I think it's pretty clear that these are awesome all around climbing shoes that particularly excel on long multi pitch routes. I had my first pair for 6 years and they were a great beginner shoe, the break in period happens quickly and it's relatively painless. I used them for basically everything, sport climbs, trad climbs, I even threw them on with socks whilst climbing in Indian Creek to add a bit more comfort.

    The odd thing that I've discovered while purchasing my second pair is that the sizing has definitely changed!!! In 2009 a 36.5 fit me perfectly. However, a few weeks ago I ordered 36.5 and took them on a climbing trip...only to find out that they were absolutely gigantic! I came back home, went to a climbing store and found out that I am now a 34.5 in mythos. I've been told that since 2009 La Sportiva has changed their cobbler, hence the difference in sizing. I don't know if this will be of much help for anyone, since this was way back in 2009 :) but just in case!

    Anyway! Mythos are amazing, I will always come back for more! My street shoe size is typically 6.5

    Great shoe, three pairs later

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I am on my third pair of these shoes, so clearly they are working out for me. They are not an aggressive shoe, so I own another pair for climbs that require that kind of shoe. Overall, these are my go to shoes. Each time I have purchased the shoe, I buy a size that is a little smaller than the last. They stretch a ton and by the time I am ready for a new pair, I don't have the same toe sensitivity that I would like when trying to stick small holds. I think I have finally nailed down the right size. I wear a 37.5 or in street shoes and the last pair I bought are a 35.0. They are snug and I want to rip them off after a few climbs, but they feel great when climbing. The larger sizes that I owned worked great, I think these will feel like the right size for longer than the others though. So it does take some time to get the sizing right.

    I recommend these shoes to anyone that is just starting out because they are comfortable. I know that they are considered an entry level shoe, but I have been climbing for years and still prefer these over my other shoes. For me, climbing shoes are something that you just have to experiment with and see what works for you.

    Popular, great first shoe

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit:True to size

    Its hard to go to a crag without seeing a pair of these, and no one is disappointed in the slightest. I bought these for my sister's first shoe and she couldn't be happier about them. They are comfortable, and a great shoe for trad! These shoes get me excited to bring her along on a multi-pitch climb!

    Popular, great first shoe

    Great all-around climbing shoe

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    I've had these shoes for several months now and have used them for the gym, cracks, all-day trad and outdoor send-fests. They are a great all-around climbing shoe, so if you're looking for a shoe that can do must things pretty well, this is it.

    I bought them 2.5 sizes smaller than my street shoe size and they stretched out about a full size. They are snug enough that my toes remain slightly curled in them, but I can loosen the laces for a more forgiving fit on longer/hotter days etc.

    The leather breaks in and stretches enough to make these comfortable for all-day trad climbing. You can lace them tighter for a more snug fit on harder routes, and the unlined leather makes them significantly less stinky than synthetic shoes. They aren't as easy to get on and off in between routes as a velcro or moc, but the tradeoff is the ability to dial in the fit with the unique lacing system.

    The sole is stiff enough to work well in cracks (hand cracks or larger). I don't think they're flexible enough for smaller cracks, when a moc would be better. Mine would personally be less painful in cracks if my toes were flat in the shoes, a half size bigger or so, but that's a personal sizing thing. The only problem with cracks is that they're chewing up the laces (the leather seems to be holding up well though), and I imagine relacing these would be a huge pain, so I'm going to start taping over my laces when I know I'll be jamming these into hand cracks.

    These do a fine job at edging but really excel at smearing. (I've found that the Grip2 rubber smears better than Vibram Edge rubber, for whatever that's worth). A shoe with harder but less sticky rubber would probably be better for really fine edges. And the flat shape and firm sole that makes the Mythos comfortable for long days of trad doesn't provide the same power in overhangs than a downturned shoe would.

    LOVE this shoe!

    I'm so glad I found the mythos. I was dead set on getting the Evolv Elektra a few weeks prior. I kept trying on size after size trying to figure out what felt good. Eventually.. I realized that the Elektra just wasn't made for my foot. I have really narrow but long feet, so the lace up of the mythos was great for me! The shoe feels like it is already made skinnier than average, but the lace system helps a lot. I love the color, too! I was a little sad when I realized they were getting dirty and less vibrant, but hey! they are supposed to be put to work, right?

    Could be sturdier, but very comfortable

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    These shoes don't edge or do cracks or overhangs too well, but they are great for all day wearing when you are doing those really long multi-pitch routes. Unfortunately the rubber on them seems to be softer than most and the rock eats right through it. I had a pair and even though I was not climbing in them every day I managed to blow out both toes in just six months. They are a lot of money for something that doesn't even last a full year.

    Great for what they're great at: Trad

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    These are, as the reviews say, comfortable and a solid trad shoe. They do not edge well and the toes do not fit into small cracks. I use them on 0.75 camalot and larger cracks personally, and for smaller cracks I use a comfortable slipper. I never bring them to the gym. They are pretty stiff, which keeps your ankle from doing too much work when your foot is sideways in a crack, but they have no power for bouldering or overhanging climbs in general. They will stretch significantly, being unlined. I am a 7.5-8 street shoes and use a 36.5 Mythos, which is in-line with other La Sportiva shoes I've tried. My toes are slightly curled when they're brand new, but within a few days I'm climbing hand cracks in them without pain. Or at least without more pain than is completely necessary. The men's and women's seem functionally identical. I had multiple women's pairs for several years and just replaced with a men's pair because that's what was available in town the night before an Indian Creek trip, and I haven't noticed a difference yet.

    One piece of advice: label them with your name (a sharpie works well). I've been at crags with more pairs of women's mythos lying around than guidebooks.

    • Fit:Runs small

    I got these shoes for my girlfriend after trying several other pairs of shoes. She wears a size 8 in street shoes and we decided on a size 36.5. At first they were super snug on her, but in a couple of weeks they stretched to the perfect size. They contoured perfectly to her feet that have high arches. They are comfortable enough that she doesnt unlace them in between climbs. The leather and material used for this shoe is high quality and keeps them from getting super stinky over time.

    Great all day shoes

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    If you're a person who enjoys nice tall, all day climbs and you're looking for a comfortable, yet technical shoe, these are a great. They never strain my foot, yet they are snug enough to stick to anything I put them on. The rubber all around is great for shoving in cracks. The lace that runs around the heel really makes a noticeable difference. My heel never slips out like it does in the La Sportiva Nagos. The leather is great quality and help keep the foot stench out. The only difference between these and the mens mythos is the mens shoe is wider in the toe. If you have wider feet, like me- I'm a US 9.5 which is a 41.5, then I would say try the mens version.

    Toes hurt? Try these shoes instead!

    So for me, wearing climbing shoes was like torture until I tried this shoe. Turns out I have something called a Morton's toe which means my big toes is a little bit shorter than my second toe. Most climbing shoes smash my toes like crazy! The mythos were literally designed for people with Morton's toe so they are super comfortable for me. Love them. Will wear them forever.

    Toes hurt? Try these shoes instead!

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Recommended these to my girlfriend because of the outstanding reviews and because she has a very narrow, long foot. She doesn't know that she cares about that stuff, but she was sold on them because of the color... :-|. Oh well. She likes them a lot and is happy to have such good looking shoes. She wears a size 9 street shoe, but we ended up getting her the 39.5 (~8 womens) to get a tight fit that will accommodate a little stretching.
