I wear both at different times. They both fit my relatively narrow foot well. The Mythos is more comfortable, fexible, better "feel," the focus is less comfortable, stiffer and works for me in places where the mythos won't. Hard steep thin edging. They're both great shoes. If comfort is our desire and your foot is narrow the Mythos is great. If your feet tire easily or you just want the extra support for really strenuous edging try the focus.

hey thanks for the response - how about sizing?

my street shoe is a 10, but i've got 3 pairs of mythos in size 41. They're pretty painful for about 4 weeks of gym climbing 3 days a week, but they eventually stretch to fit like a glove.

thoughts on comparable sizing for the focus?
