I am using the following URL format to display products: mysite.com/category1/product.

Now I am finding certain products fall into more than 1 category and I would like the product to be listed in all related categories so I end up with:

mysite.com/category1/product
mysite.com/category2/product

The product page is exactly the same the only difference would be the URL and a slightly different breadcrumb menu on the page.

I understand this is bad practice for SEO, what can I do while still maintaining the URLs with both categories?

Yes, it is. To solve this situation, should add a "canonical link" to one of the product pages. This addresses your situation perfectly: Canonical Links

That would inform search engines where the original content is located, and thus not be considered duplicate content.
