La Sportiva Mythos
Imagine a world where hard cash grew on berry bushes; where climbing shoes were both high performance and comfortable, and worked equally well for multi-pitch trad, sport routes and bouldering.

Imagine a world where hard cash grew on berry bushes; where climbing shoes were both high performance and comfortable, and worked equally well for multi-pitch trad, sport routes and bouldering. A perfect world.
Wake up. You’re broke and love is still a four-letter word. About the only solace is the La Sportiva Mythos, the genre-bending climbing shoe. Since 1991, the Mythos has been exceeding expectations. In those 15 years, climbers have used the comfortable shoe for every style of climbing from boulders to plastic. The Mythos is seen ratcheting the gnarly toe crunchers at Indian Creek, paddling Tuolumne slabs, on the multi-pitch flares at Lumpy Ridge, on the splitters of Yosemite and beyond.
Maybe that’s because the unlined leather upper hugs the foot like a baby clutching his shuggims. Maybe it’s the internationally patented lacing system. Maybe it’s the grape bubble gum color? I don’t think so.
Now, La Sportiva is making the Mythos in a new color, Terra. Mythos lovers will be psyched to hear that color is the only thing slated to change in this unimaginably versatile and long-lived favorite.
