Yeah, what's your point? I've seen people climb harder than I can in swim flippers. Doesn't mean that they wouldn't climb harder without them. I know 100% for certain that FOR ME, the shoe I wear matters. Maybe not much, but certain shoes feel better for certain types of climbing. I use Mythos for lots of things, but if I want to feel precise edges, I think they suck. Sure TC could climb my project barefoot, but every little bit helps and if I can wear a pair of shoes that make a route easier for me, I'm going to wear them.

Do you know that Huber isn't wearing those because of attributes other than precision? He is on a bigwall and Mythos are pretty comfy to wear all day. Would he be able to climb harder in another shoe? Maybe 13- is easy for him and it doesn't matter what shoe he wears.
