La Sportiva Mythos
The La Sportiva Mythos is one of the oldest selling climbing shoes on the market and are still going strong today owing to their versatility, all-round performance, and unparalleled comfort on multipitch, big wall, and crack climbing.
The La Sportiva Mythos has been purpose-built with comfort and adaptability in mind, producing a shoe that can be worn all day and last for years without losing any of its performance capability. Cosy from the moment you put it on until the moment you take it off, the soft unlined leather upper adapts to whatever shape your foot is and will stretch on long and warm days when feet tend to swell. This combined with the Vibram® rubber rand that’s perforated to allow for extra flex mean the shoe is very forgiving on big climbs but doesn't sacrifice performance for the sake of comfort. Also uses the patented Mythos lacing system for the securest fit, and Vibram XS Edge rubber for the optimal balance between durability, and performance on micro holds and edges. Years of fine-tuning this shoe have allowed La Sportiva to come up with a design that isn’t just comfortable at the beginning, but will stay comfortable in any and all situations throughout its lifetime.
