The Five Ten Anasazi VCS V2 now features Stealth® Onyxx™ rubber for the hardest, stickiest, most durable sole in the world. This is the highest-end performance shoe for sport climbing and hard bouldering, and is the future of climbing.
The VCS and Lace-Up Anasazi climbing shoes by Five Ten are the top selling performance rock shoes in Europe. The VCS offers more sensitivity for pulling on holds on steep rock--a powerful tool for extreme sport climbing. This is a second-generation Anasazi known as the "V2," and if you're familiar with the originals, prepare to be amazed.
Although the Anasazi V1 (formerly known as the Anasazi Velcro) from Five Ten led the high-performance shoe category for years, new technology has allowed them to make it even better. The V2's have new Stealth® Onyxx™ rubber, with 25 percent more friction and twice the durability of other rubbers. The Anasazi VCS and lace ups also have Five Ten's new Happy Fingers heel, with more comfort and security than ever. Designed by Charles Cole. Test team includes Evo, Jibe, Chris Miller, Mario Lacedelli, Michi Weiser and Noah Bigwood.
Five Ten's Anazazi Lace V2 Climbing shoe has a Cowdura synthetic lined upper and fits like a glove. It provides a secure and reliable fit climb after climb. There’s a reason climbers believe in the Lace-up: it has ascended more standard-breaking 5.14s than any other shoe. Ever.

I can't speak to longevity, because I've only worn these a few times so far. These are perfect edging shoes. Great for those tiny nubs, edges and pockets. I haven't used them in cracks yet, but they seem like they'r probably do pretty well. The rubber is as sticky as the Five Ten rubber is rumored to be. The only complaint I have is the fit. It's "interesting" The toe box seems like it's designed for a more loose fit, not a lot of room for your toes to curl up, maybe I have longer toes than usual? But to keep the heel from being super baggy you have to size these so that your toes curl a bit, not a lot, but some and it feels kind of wrong. All that aside, it's something I'll deal with because it's not that bad. I would buy these shoes again in a minute. I wear a size 11.5 street shoe and I went with an 11 in this shoe for the fit that I'm happy with.
I am a committed 5.10 customer. I really like the Anasazi verdes, and I have had several pairs. When I saw these on sale I thought it was worth a shot. The shoe feels and climbs almost identical to the verde. They have a different rubber, but to be honest it feels the same. I have used them on hard steep limestone routes in American Fork Canyon, as well as long trad routes on granite in Little Cottonwood and Lone Peak, and they work great for everything. Just have to pop the heel off during belays to give my foot a rest because I size them snug enough to use for sport as well as trad. I wear a street shoe size 9, and got these in 8.5. Very happy with the fit.
They are great edging shoes, and the heel is comfortable and snug for the occasional heel hook.
I definitely recommend these shoes!
Love 'em, love 'em, love 'em. I use these shoes for everything. indoor, outdoor sport, and bouldering. They really excel outdoors on slab climbs. You can really stand up on virtually nothing. Edging is superb and smearing is bomb with these shoes. They're not the best for really small pocket foot holds but they still do the job. I wear 8-8.5 street shoes and i got these in 7.5. These are the second pair of shoes I've ever bought and i'm sticking with these 'cause they stuck on me.
