Five Ten Anasazi Lace-Up v2 -

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.

Not satisfied with the already-legendary performance of the original Anasazi Lace-Up, Five Ten introduced the Anasazi V2 Climbing Shoe with a new fit and features for improved performance. The Five Ten Anasazi V2 Lace-Up Climbing Shoe edges so well that dime edges feel like sidewalks, so pull on a pair and send your ultra-technical project.

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.
We’ve refined the Five Ten Lace-Up that has delivered climbers to the top of more 5.14s than any other shoe. The lined Cowdura synthetic upper fits like a glove; providing the same fit, climb after climb, as the day the shoe was born. Stealth C4 rubber outsoles offer extremely high friction and great sensitivity.

Fantastic shoe

I am currently on my second pair of Anasazi Velcro's and without question I will always have a pair in my climbing bag. While they are marketed as high performance sport shoes, I feel that they are pretty good all arounders. They edge well, but also arent so down toed that you cant smear on a vertical face. They have a nice heel for hooking, but not as good at the Team 5.10's which are outstanding. One downside to these is there is not much rubber over the top of the toes for toe-hooking.
This shoe does stretch and for me I go a full 1.5 sizes down from my street shoe and after a short break in period, are amazingly comfortable. I can definitely go hours in these shoes at the gym or crag. By comparison the Team 5.10's really dont stretch much at all and I would recommend going exactly with your street shoe size unless you are a glutton for foot pain.
I would wholeheartedly recommend the Anasazi Velcro's esp if you like bouldering as well as sport climbing.

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.

Great shoe. I've been climbing about four years, mostly gym, one season on rock. 5.10's in the gym. After years in my 5.10 Coyotes, I wanted to try a high performance shoe. As advertised, these shoes edge very well. Their ability to smear is equal to, or better than, my recently resoled (C4) Coyotes. My feet measure out to a US size 9.5. I tried the Blanco's in 9.0, 9.5 and 10. In the 9.5's my toes are slightly curled, the fit is tight, but not painful. The heel design really pushes my big toes right up into the toe box. I know it's not really fair to compare the two on comfort, but just to help you get a sense of it, the Coyotes feel like slippers while the Blanco's feel more like a new pair of dress leather shoes. I feel like I got just what a wanted, a high quality, high performance shoe, with more edging capability than what I've climbed in to date.

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!

This shoe is amazing on everything from slab to gently overhanging rock. When it comes to precision and support on small edges, nothing compares. I find the new heel is comfortable and cups your heel providing a tighter and more secure fit. Out of the box, they feel a little stiff and aren\'t very sensitive, however once you break them in they are great. These hang in there too. I was very surprised and pleased with how long they lasted. It took me 7 months of hard climbing to burn through a pair. Having a narrow foot, I found them a little baggy in some spots, but nothing major and I never felt that it affected my climbing. Overall this is a high performance shoe that you won\'t be disappointed in.

My second pair and I'm not disappointed

I love these shoes. My first pair was an 8.5 and I decided to bump the size up to a 9 for my new pair as the 8.5's were smaller than I wanted. I was somewhat surprised, however, to find that my new 9's fit much tighter than the 8.5's even after a long time stretching and fitting to my foot. Maybe there's still room for some stretching, but I'm beginning to think that's not the case. I can still wear them fine, though... just might've gone for a 9.5 instead. Other than that issue, I have no complaints; they're incredible shoes. The new Stealth ONYXX is great. No regrets on purchasing these shoes again.

Pretty solid shoes

After suffering for 2 years in too small Anasazi Verde I have finally totaled them. They were good shoes, but I have messed up and bought really tight suckers. Learning from my own mistakes I have ordered half size up with Velcro style. They fit well now and there is not really big difference between Velcro and lace up shoes - which is good news. They are not so comfy like LaSportiva TC Pro, but hey I am not going to waste TC Pro on a gym and crag climbing. That said, they are pretty solid shoes for sport climbing and I guess I will always have a pair in my climbing inventory.

The most popular climbing shoe...

... for a reason. The Anasazi's are everything you could want from a climbing shoe. Perfect balance between comfortable and aggressive. Great on edges and on overhangs. Great wrap around your ankle, but easy to take off. Won't smell if properly taken care of. I own 11 pairs of climbing shoes including this one, and the Anasazi's are by far my favorite of them all.
The only problem I see with them is that I just wish I owned a 2nd pair. GET THIS SHOE, I repeat... GET THIS SHOE. I don't work for 5.10 by the way, but I DO LOVE this shoe. Can you tell?
TheRockClimber at Rock/Creek Outfitters on 05/05/2011
These shoes will stick to ANYTHING. Just set your foot down, put some weight on it, and you won't go anywhere. I used them on a couple of 100' trad pitches and I couldn't have asked anything else of them. I would recommend them for any flat (or slightly overhanging) wall climbing. They aren't flexible enough for cracks. The heels on them are painful when on the ground, but once I started climbing, I didn't notice them. On a side note, I wear 9s in Moccasyms, but I needed a size 10 in these.

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.

Good shoe, but too roomy in the heel

I like this shoe for its versatility, but the heel is so cavernous that its difficult to get my foot to sit flush with the toe and the heel. Even sizing down doesn't help as the opening int he shoe doesn't allow for you to fully get your heel back all the way.
