Best rock sh** 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: JaxRox927, 2012-08-19

Love these shoes! Shopped for awhile and happy with these.

Like this shoe REALLY needs another amazing review. 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: gunked, 2011-09-01

Been climbing for almost 20 years. Been climbing on these for about 7 of them. I've used a bunch of Scarpas in the past. I like comfort and used to always go with high tops. I own 2 pairs of mythos and keep them revolving between resoles and climbing. Both pairs are currently on their 4th resole. I generally climb multi-pitch trad (Gunks 10's), but will climb sport(Rumney 11's) on occasion. These are, hands down, the best performing and most comfortable shoe I've ever owned!

Wonderful Shoe! 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: secander, 2011-05-07

My first real climbing shoe. Really comfortable! Now I use it for trad. The main problem is that bad technique will burn it out very quickly. I blew out the toe in three months.

Notes on sizing:
This shoes is sized very small, you will need to downsize to get a decent fit. Also, the shoe stretches quite a bit.

Mythos: 6.5 (39 euro) - feels snug after break in.
Miura: 7.5 (40 euro) - feels snug after break in.
Quantum: 8.5 - feels very very tight
5.10 Team: 9 - feels tight

super comfortable BUT watch out for the sizing 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent quality, great flat lasted shoes, work real good on edging and jamming. Being so comfortable these ones will stay on for multipitch also.
The only issue has to do with sizing.. this is my only sportiva shoe so I can't compare with the rest of them, but I wear US 9 anasazi, pontas and new mugen (EUR 42 all of them), getting a tight technical fit, but with the mythos I had to go all the way down to EUR 40 to get a comfortable fit.

Great shoe 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: MatthewVinez, 2010-07-11

Bought this shoe 14 years ago, and still working great. Frequent gym trips as well as out-door top rope and bouldering. Great fit, and far more comfortable than some others I've worn.
