La Sportiva Mythos Eco
The La Sportiva Mythos Eco is an eco-copy of the famous Mythos climbing shoe, produced almost entirely from eco-friendly materials and sustainable processes.
The Mythos Eco is still designed for comfort from start to end, featuring a foot-friendly design that allows feet to breathe, an upper that will stretch and adapt to your foot shape, and a natural shape that easily slots into cracks and causes minimum fatigue on multipitch and big wall routes. It has the identical materials, design, and performance of the Mythos - the shoe that is well-known for having unparalleled comfort on big wall, crack, and multipitch climbs - except 95% of it comes from recycled materials. The sole, laces, ribbons, and the tongue padding are all recycled, and environmentally-friendly production methods - metal free tanning, biodegradable leather, water-based adhesives - all contribute to a significantly lower environmental impact.
Expect the Mythos to stretch up to a full size, and also bear in mind that La Sportiva recommend you size it on the loose end of the spectrum for a comfort-fit.
