Mythos Eco

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The Mythos Eco is a great all-day climbing shoe that has been redesigned, using 95 percent recycled materials, without compromising quality and function. This product is designed for both indoor and outdoor use, and has superior comfort for all day use, whether working on projects in the gym, or long multi-pitch routes.  After 25 years of being a climber’s favorite, Las Sportiva has announced a re-edition of their classic shoe. The Mythos Eco looks nearly identical as its predecessor, however… Full review

Helios 2.0

rated 4 of 5 stars Love 'em, but wish they had a rockplate. Awesome for groomed and soft but not too muddy trails. These are my go-to shoes for shorter (up to 30-ish km) runs on terrain that's likely not to have many sharp pointy rocks or involve too much road running. I'm on to my third pair of Helios having clocked up over 1500km in my last ver1s before I retired them.Fit I have picky feet—if the shoe fits I'll wear it and I loved the fit and comfort of these shoes straight out of the box. I like a lower drop… Full review

Bushido

rated 5 of 5 stars Plain and simple, I love my Bushidos! Great combination of a lightweight, durable, and protective shoe that performs magically on some very technical terrain. I'd absolutely recommend this shoe, if it fits your foot well! For my foot, the fit is near perfect. I have a narrower foot and these are a bit snug, but I acutally like that (in the midfoot anyway). With a little use they loosened slightly and the fit got even better. If you're worried about the tight fit and you have a narrow foot, buy them… Full review

Forward T-Shirt

rated 4 of 5 stars The Forward T-Shirt from La Sportiva is a well-made, comfortable, technical quarter zip tee for trail running and other “high-output aerobic activities.” In my year and a half of use, I’ve found it to fit well, stretch and move with my body, and not cause any chafing (the bane of my running). Its Polygiene anti-bacterial/anti-odor treatment has excelled, with still no whiff of stink, despite many hot, sweaty miles. The Forward T-Shirt is best for running in warm weather. I find it most comfortable… Full review

Laspo Chalk Bag

rated 5 of 5 stars This climber’s essential has all of the necessary features of a chalk bag, at a great price point. This chalk bag works well for any type of indoor or outdoor climber, whether bouldering at the gym, or multi-pitch days on a big wall. When it comes to knowing a product will perform flawlessly, people reach out to a small handful of brands. La Sportiva is certainly one of these elite companies, handcrafting products in northern Italy for outdoor enthusiasts since 1929. Although footwear for climbing… Full review
