These were my first pair of climbing shoes after spending too much money renting gym shoes. While you're probably not going to send anything super technical in these, they are great for easier bouldering problems, as well as cracks and multi-pitch. The biggest bonus, even when you buy them tight, they're still almost as comfortable as your running shoes! Once these wear out, I will for sure be buying another pair.
I have been climbing for years. Both bouldering and trad. Mythos are just comfy. Lets be honest if you need a super aggressive shoe to climb that boulder problem then you are just not strong enough. Back in the day they climbed in boots! I always tell people for sizing make sure they fit in length, from heel to toe. They wont stretch there but the rest of the shoe will mold to your foot. I have many shoes, this is the pair I wear everyday.
"Most comfortable and versatile shoe out there. A great all around option"
Shoes are all about personal preference, and I absolutely love these shoes. They are super comfortable, even in a half size smaller than other sportiva models. I can wear them all day without discomfort, which is so important for long days outside. Because they are entirely suede they also never smell. These shoes are also exceptionally easy to resole, making them really affordable over their lifetime. Great for edging and cracks not so much for crushing your super overhanging boulder problems, but c'mon. Some people think they look funny, but for the performance and comfort I'd wear them if they look like clown shoes.
Got these shoes a month or so ago. i went and tried them on in the store and found the size that fit a little tighter than id like and then ordered it in a half size smaller than that. First time i put them on i wore them in the shower laced them really tight and then slept in them they now fit perfectly. love these shoes
This is my third pair of climbing shoes (I've had Mad Rock Mugens and 5.10 Anasazi Verde's) and they are by far the most comfortable I have owned. The shoes mold to your feet after a few climbs. Climbing shoes are hard for me to find because my second toe is longer than my big toe. All climbing shoes have a harsh front curve that makes them less comfortable for me, my second toe ends up scrunching and rubbing on the top of the shoe. Not the case with these shoes.
I have had this shoe for a couple of years and it hasn't let me down. My one warning is that they stretch quit a bit. So plan accordingly depending on how tight and technical you want them. I believe I got one size smaller than my street shoes and they stretched out to be the perfect all day multipitch shoes. The only thing I have had to do is resole them once and that is completely expected.The rubber all around is great for cracks and hooking. Also, the lacing may sound complicated but it isn't that bad and they have instructions online if you need to relace them. Overall I highly recommend them for climbers of any experience level.
"bad ass shoes for easy to moderate climbing, These are the smear King"
I love these shoes for sport and trad up too 5.11a or so. they are so comfortable and the unlined leather stretches to fit you foot. I love these shoes for delicate smears on techy slabs. They also jam hand sizes and bigger with excellent friction. awesome shoes, my friends and i call them the comfort loafer... get them there great!
My first climbing shoe was the 5.10 coyote, but I needed something with a little more performance. After trying several different shoes, these were the only ones that fit. I have really narrow feet with a small heel and the Mythos fit perfectly. I will definitely be buying more. The grip is also amazing.. better than any i've tried
"Stretchy, Comfortable, but not that aggresive."
Great Product. Like stated before, they are extremely flexible and will feel like a second skin. But, after using them for about 6 months (a tad long) they dont have the same edge they used to. Still feel SO comfy though. I love to wear these out bouldering so I can just beat them up and not have to kepp taking them on and off. Sill fit like a glove though.
