    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.

    Love, love, love

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

    I will continue to buy this model of shoes everytime they wear out! The fit and functionality is great. After I wore through the sole, I was able to get the shoes resoled and everything else held up for another season. Not complaints whatsoever!

    Go To Shoe!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought my Mythos about a year ago and climb 3-5 days a week, so I use them often. They are my go to climbing shoe for trad, multipitch, crack, or a day bouldering in the gym. They do not have a large angle, so they are perfect for a variety of climbing. I highly recommend for any level of climber.
    I love my Mythos, but I definitely would go down a whole size. I purchased a 38 and they have stretched quite a bit. I usually wear a size 8 in women's and I have narrow feet, so I wish I bought a 37.5, maybe a 37. However, they do have laces, so that helps a lot with the stretching in size.
    All in all, they are super comfortable (for a climbing shoe) and great for all sorts of climbing!

    All-time favorite

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I wear street size 38.5 and climbing shoes in 37.5/38 but for this pair I went down to a size 36.5. It seems extreme but the suede streches a lot which makes for a super comfy awesome all-day fit. These shoes have seriously spoiled me to the point where these are all I wear. I am curious as to why the laces are so long? I usually triple knot my shoes to keep them out of the way.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Incredible shoe for long days of multi-pitch. Super comfortable. The lacing system allows the shoes to be adjusted to fit your feet near perfectly. I have a pair stretched from too many resoles that I wear with socks during colder seasons, and they keep my feet super warm.

    Don't fix what ain't broke

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Mythos has got to be hands-down the most comfortable shoe out there. The lacing system is such that you can really change the volume of the shoe from toe to heel to perfectly match your foot, as long as you've bought the right length. They can be made to fit almost anyone.

    And don't let their "trad dad" appearance fool you---these shoes are highly adept at smearing, slabs, cracks, and even technical face climbing. They are a tried-and-true design that over decades has perfected the art of making your feet comfortable and capable and then being forgotten.

    I will keep buying these shoes until I die and I hope La Sportiva never changes them.

    For me, the right length of shoe was approximately street size (maybe also try .5 size down). Get the length of the sole right so that it matches your foot and you have a nice fit from heel to toe; your toes should be laying flat. You can then adjust the laces to be whatever width you need.

    Don't fix what ain't broke

    Returned Them But I have Sizing Feedback

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I bought these for a trip down in Moab, did they didn't fit and I didn't have time to get the correct size, but I do have sizing feedback. I purchased the 37.5 and I typically wear a 7.5 in women's shoes. I think I should have gone with a 36.5.

    I love these shoes!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are my old standbys they are great for cracks, multipitch and a relaxed day at the crag. They are definitely a comfort above performance shoe but that does not mean that you can't still slay. I got these shoes in a 6.5 because they stretch. My normal shoe size is a 7.5. They have really stood the test of time. Definitely worth the purchase!

    She loves it!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Bought this pair for my girlfriend as it's her favorite pair of climbing shoes. They do stretch and it didn't take her very long to break them in. Since they're super comfy, it's her go-to pair on long multi-pitch days, slabs, and splitter cracks. She typically wears Women's 8.5 in sneakers and got a Women's 6.0 for the Mythos.

    Classic and Versatile

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

    I purchased these shoes for my girlfriend, who has recently been getting into climbing. I chose these shoes because they have been made and loved by many for the 20 or so years I have been climbing. A versatile shoe for beginners and experts alike.

    Beginner's Dream

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Man these shoes are comfy. I've been wearing them 2-4 times a week for the past two months as a newbie to indoor bouldering. The lace support around the ankles helps a LOT to secure the fit, you can tie them on snugly without heel slipping. As mentioned in some of the other reviews, the laces are pretty long but I just do a knotted loop after tying to keep them in place.

    I typically wear a 6.5 in everyday shoes, 7 in sneakers, and ended up with a 36.5 in the Mythos. The leather has stretched a bit over time but there's no negative impact to comfort or fit. Highly recommend these, plus the mint is super cute!

    Fantastic Beginner Climbing Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 37.5
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 125lbs

    I'm a relatively new climber. I don't climb indoors, just outdoors. When I initially bought climbing shoes, the guy at a local store talked me out of the Mythos and into some more technical shoes that fit painfully tight. I climbed in them a number of times and was super unhappy and in pain every time, and it definitely affected my climbing. I know climbing shoes aren't supposed to be comfortable but I was about ready to give up. I knew I'd be climbing the First Flatiron in Boulder this last weekend, so I ordered the Mythos last week. The First Flatiron is about 1000 ft of relatively easy climbing, 5.4-5.6 difficulty. I was a little nervous about wearing new shoes for an all day climb, but they were fantastic! Great grip, very comfortable. I felt a lot more comfortable on slab than I did in my other shoes. I ordered a 37.5 and I think they will be great as the laces make them adjustable through the entire length of the shoe and heel. I am generally a 6.5 in normal shoes, 7-7.5 in athletic shoes. I do think these run larger compared to other brands as my other climbing shoes (Scarpa) are 38s and those make me want to cry.

    Best for long days

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 172lbs

    The perfect long day trad shoe. I thought my other climbing shoes were comfy, but then I spent a week in these and it's so hard to go back to my normal gym shoes. When I'm going to be in my shoes all day, this is my go-to. I was reluctant to splurge on a second pair of climbing shoes, but my boyfriend has a pair and convinced me to try these on, and I can't believe I spent as many long days in uncomfortable shoes as I had. The leather is super soft plus the lacing set up makes for a perfect fit. Seriously worth the money!! Also, they're mint. Which is adorable.

    Comfortable and Flexible

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    Comfy and flexible climbing shoe for slab or all day, long route wear. I wore them at Ten Sleep once because I forgot other shoes and everyone made fun of me but I still sent! :-P They stretch out a bit because of all the leather, so keep this in mind when buying!

    Fit low volume feet well

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Size Bought: 42
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    I have low volume feet. The combination of the lace system which allows for all sorts of adjustments and the leather that stretched to fit my foot made these shoes fit perfectly.

    I used to have to call sessions short because of downsized aggressive shoes, whereas these allow me to climb so much more with so much less pain. These work so well for me that I don't feel like experimenting with other shoes.

    I fit into a 10.5 or 11 men's street shoe, got these in a Euro 42. After stretching, the leather on each side of the laces has drawn pretty close to being able to touch (in other words, they weren't far from stretching too much). I think as long as a size works in terms of length the rest will come to fit after just a few sessions. I will probably buy this shoe again. If comfort is a priority for you, these win.


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 37

    I am a 8 in shoe size and the size 37 in La Sportiva was the perfect fit. They were very comfortable during my climb from the first time I put them on and I was extremely impressed with the grip I got with them. I highly recommend these.

    Go one size down. Great trad/crack shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 38.5
    • Height: 5'8"

    I'm not going to spend time reiterating what everyone else has already established (and as is evidenced at your local crag), this is a great shoe for all-day climbing, trad, cracks, etc.

    My other shoe is the Miura VS. I went one full size down (39.5 in Miuras, and 38.5 in these). I probably could have done a 38.0 as you can already tell these are going to stretch and my toes were comfy from the start. Luckily the laces make it easily to get a good fit while letting my toes stay happy :)
