Product Description

The La Sportiva Women's Mythos has been their most popular women's climbing shoe for the last ten years. This year's objective: refine this model with a few good changes and make it even better for women. Solution: the heel fit of the women's Mythos is narrower. Result: the ultimate performance women's climbing shoe. The sides of the shoe near the ankle have been lowered to accommodate lower ankle bones. This shoe has all the features of the original model but crafted specially for a woman's fit, plus a new Dri-Lex liner on the tongue for increase comfort. The Mythos is fully randed to take the abusive punishment that crack climbing can dish out. The 1.1mm Laspoflex midsole is stiff enough to edge yet supple enough to smoothly flex when smearing on slabs. The extra high sticky XSV toe rands make this shoe a favorite with thin crack experts. Part of the Mythos' universal popularity stems from the fact that it stretches an incredible 1-1.5 sizes and takes on the shape of any type foot, whether long and skinny or wide and high-volume. They are designed so you can wear them with your toes flat in the most comfortable position yet laterally compressed for edging performance. **La Sportiva recomends sizing down 1/2 size from your street shoes.

    Comfort Rules
    These really are the most comfortable shoes around. Excellent performance, great fit, good looking and affordable. That's why three out of four women seem to be wearing them no matter where you go! Nice job, Anita!
