La Sportiva presents: Mythos Anniversary edition | 1991 - 2011
La Sportiva's hugely successful Mythos climbing shoe must have been spot-on when they first introduced it in 1991 as here it is, 20 years later, unchanged. Its perfect synthesis of technology, comfort and performance makes the most versatile model in the La Sportiva range - suitable for all kinds of rock, and offering the best compromise between sensitivity and friction.
To celebrate La Sportiva has created a very limited Anniversary edition of just 1991 shoes, of which just 50 will be available in the UK. Each is individually printed with its own serial number. We have four pairs, each worth £110, exclusively available in this special UKC competition.
If you aren't lucky enough to win, the Mythos Anniversary shoe is exclusively available for sale at climbing specialist Rock On, which has stocked the Mythos since it first went on sale.
