Diadora running shoes are fortunate enough to be in the part of their development cycle where every innovation feels like a huge leap forward. The Mythos 6 is no exception. As I open the box, the first thing I notice is a beautiful design overhaul. The sleek upper is dotted with HIP reflective material to give what might be considered a dull, black shoe otherwise, a tasteful amount of pop. I slip it on and immediately notice it fits better than the 5. This is thanks to the double layer tongue which adds a touch of arch support without going overboard. As I begin running, I notice this shoe is more responsive than the last version. Companies often mess this up and take a shoe that was criticized for being too squishy and make it hard as a brick. With the Mythos 6, the change feels natural. I still feel the Blueshield softness that characterizes this brand but I’m getting a lot of rebound. The shoe is still heavy, but for an everyday mileage shoe that’s a small gripe. If you’re looking for a shoe to handle the daily grind, the Mythos 6 will not disappoint.

“I recommend 3RRC because they truly care and make you feel like family. The store has so much combined running knowledge that they will set you up for success whether you are walking for fitness or endurance running.”
