Review by climbhigher on Oct. 25, 2007
So you decided to break the bank on a pair of shoes for that project you have been working all month. Well you have made a good choice as long as you can shoulder the cost of these shoes. This shoes features make it fit like a glove sculpted for a foot and you will be happy you made this purchase. Just make sure you don't grab this pair for that multipitch slab route you were thinking of doing. The toe box feels really nice and I find my heel just sinks into the rear of the shoe.
Other then the price there is no downfall to this shoe.

My favorite show of all time for tearing up the boulder problems and hard sport routes. It literally fits like a glove. I have a narrow foot and have never had a show fit this well. The downturned big toe gives you a lot of power on tiny edges and nubbins.

I've resoled these shoes three times and I climb on them at least twice a week. In fact, I'm sending them off again this week for the 4th resole! They rock and just keep on trucking. I really beat them and they take it in stride.

I tried on every shoe in an REI store this winter trying to find another shoe that would replace this one while it was out being resoled. Only the mythos fit me this well. The other 10+ models just didn't come close.
It sized a bit odd for me. I wear a 42.5 mythos, but that size nearly broke my feet in this shoe, I ended up with a 43.5 for some reason and it's exactly perfect.

They're a bit pricey, but what's an extra $10 for a shoe that works.

Great shoes! Love the fit. I wear a 10, sometimes 10.5, and I've got a 43.5 in these and they fit wonderfully. I love how the big toe is turned downward.

Once broken in, it's the best friggin shoe made. For everything but full on cracks.
Lacing is a pain, specially when breaking them in.

Amazing Arch, wicked heeling capabilities, grippy rubber, tight design
Laces :/
These are definitely bouldering or trad shoes. NOT all day. Alternatives might include Miuras, I guess.
