Red Chili Mystix Climbing Shoe
The Mystix is a high-end performance climbing shoe made for climbing on steep ground. It is built on an aggressive, downturned, pointed last making it very precise on overhanging and vertical climbs, it has a specially designed midsole that allows the shoe to flex enough to smear but also enough rigidity to stand on tiny edges. It has a Crossed Velcro strap closure system that tightens the whole shoe in one motion. The Mystix is very sensitive thanks to it's very grippy and sensitive Vibram XS Grip sole (3.5 mm), the toe area is made from leather which adjusts to each individual toe making the Mystix more comfortable and gives you a well-fitting shoe.

These are my second pair of the Mystix, bought to tide me over while my first is getting resoled. The first pair lasted the same amount of time as my 5.10 and La Sportivas before needing a resole, so no complaints there.
I have slightly narrow/ lower volume feet, and these fit like a glove - snug toe box with a lot of rubber for toe hooks, tight heel for heel hooks. Probably too tight for someone with a wide forefoot or thick ankles. Overall, super happy with the Mystix (and now have 2 pairs!)
