The Mythos, Katana and Skwama are three climbing shoe models from the La Sportiva range, each with its own unique features, and they serve to perfectly illustrate in broad strokes the three primary categories of climbing shoes: beginner/classic climbing, higher difficulty/long multipitch climbing, and boulder/high-grade sport climbing.
