      by fromGreat shoes! These are very comfortable. The laces make it easy to adjust the tightness. The harder soles help you to stabilize yourself on the wall. I have used mine for over a year and they are still great shoes.

      by fromAll around good climbing shoes The mythos offer great comfort for long climbing expeditions. I have used them for face and crack climbing and have not found anything wrong with their performance.

      by fromThe most comforatable shoe ever These shoes are the most comfortable pair of climbing shoes I have yet to own. I am an intermediate-level climber that enjoys bouldering, trad and sport climbing. They were used for anything from long, multipitch climbs to bouldering and indoor gym climbing. All around a great shoe. They are flexible, snug-fitting for a narrow foot and versatile. The only draw-back is the soft sole was not quite rigid enough for some intricate footwork. The toe also wore through in only two years of climbing once or twice weekly.

      by fromShoes that fit my feet! I decided to take up climbing a few months ago, and these were the only non-aggressive shoes that fit my feet. My feet are very small, yet fairly wide. Despite the fact that my feet are wide, I was worried that these shoes would stretch too much for my wide feet, but 3 months in, so far so good. After a few days of climbing indoors, these shoes stretched to mold to my feet perfectly--I'd guess probably as comfortable of a climbing shoe as you can get. As others have mentioned, do order down a few sizes. I normally wear a 5-5.5 womens, and I have a size 33 in these shoes. If I had to do it again, I would probably get a 32.5.

      by fromGreat starter shoe I got these shoes as my first pair of new climbing shoes. It was quite uncomfortable for the first month or so, now they fit perfectly since they have molded to my feet. The only thing that I find that really bothers me is that between climbs they are not very easy to take off and slip back on. Other than that they are a great shoe whether indoors or outdoors, no matter the slope or terrain.

      by fromcomfy shoe, good for prolonged wear I wore this shoe climbing and bouldering, for hours at a time, and my feet felt fine afterwards. Though not too agressive, it's a very comfortable design. I was surprised at how tacky the sole was too.

      by fromMore Then I Could Ask For These are my first pair of climbing shoes and I've been climbing for about 4-5 months now. (Sadly I have a bad sprain and have to take a break from it.) I love these shoes! They are worth every cent. I can climb for hours in them and my feet are still pretty happy with me. They smear great and I love the way they fit me. I couldn't ask for a better first shoe.

      by fromGreat all-rounder Mythos have to be one of the top 5 climbing shoes on the market. They've certainly been the best shoes I've had to date, and they've fully lived up to their reputation as a great technical outdoor shoe. The first time I wore them I instantly went up a grade, which given I'm a bit of a gear sceptic, made me laugh at the time. I'd give the Mythos 5 stars, but you never know what's around the corner, and also, I'm just now breaking in a pair of Muira lace-ups, and they might be even better (time will tell). Whilst I'd acknowledge that there are perhaps better purely indoor shoes on the market, if you're after a technical shoe for both indoors and outdoors, and particularly outdoor multi-pitch routes, then Mythos are hard to beat. If you get the sizing right they will initially be uncomfortable as heck (like a full size too small), but once you've worn them in they'll fit like a glove and you'll be able to keep them on for long periods. If you've got broad feet they're also probably one of the better fitting shoes around (though the Muiras are also pretty good on this count). First time around I wore out the toes quicker than with the shoes I'd had previously (maybe due to poor technique), but the Mythos take multiple resoling, so this hasn't been a big deal (at resoling I opt for the thickest rand 'rubber' available).
