For the last ten years, the Mythos has been La Sportiva's most popular shoe with women climbers. 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.
