Five Ten Anasazi Pro Women Climbing Shoe
The new version of the Anasazi that's more comfortable and better for technical climbing, lower volume model. The Five Ten Anasazi Pro Women has an Mi6 toe patch, whereas the original Anasazi had none, and the closure system has been updated with newer materials to make it more comfortable and breathable. The Pro is thus much better for boulderers looking to toe-hook, but it's still a fantastic all-round shoe that's good for sport, bouldering, and multi-pitch.
The Ansazi Pro Women features a neutral profile with an asymmetric toe-box that make it a highly comfortable shoe, but it's still pretty precise. The stiff midsole is ideal for longer climbs and edging, and the Stealth C4 outsole will perform on everything. The Pro has a little more heel tension to make it a bit more aggressive and precise than before.

Stealth® C4™ Rubber
A high-friction rubber used on the majority of Five Ten’s shoes due of its all-round performance and versatility. Five Ten first debuted this rubber on the original approach shoe, the Five Tennie, in 1985, and since then Stealth rubber has always been developed by Five Ten themselves in direct conjunction with their shoes, unlike other shoe manufacturers who outsource their rubber. The result is a rubber that works with your shoe harmoniously.

I've been climbing for a couple of years now, mainly bouldering. I was looking for a new pair of bouldering shoes as my last pair had become super soft. I was interested in these and the La Sportiva Solutions. I went with these because of the massive rubber toe box and the super stiff sole. I have to say these are amazing. My feet feel so secure when edging now. I am scared of slabs so I climb them as much as possible and these shoes have helped so much with my foot work because I feel so much more confident on tiny footholds. The smearing ability of these shoes is also amazing. After a couple of months of wear I haven't felt them stretch much if at all. I'm assuming its because of the toe box (makes toe hooks a breeze btw) so be aware of that when choosing a size.
I've been climbing for around 12 years now, and for the last 6 years or so I've been wearing almost solely 5.10 Anasazi LV. I found them amazing: best rubber, worked on any terrain, awesome heel. The only thing that was missing was rubber on top in front, toe-hooking didn't work. Now they've finally solved that problem! Now I have my perfect shoes=)
I was a big fan of La Sportiva Mythos, but after using it for one year I was looking forward to moving on to something more performance orientated but still provides me the comfort and Anasazi Pro Women is the perfect solution for me. I ordered the shoes in size 39.5 (my street size is 39 and I normally wear La Sportiva size 37.5) and they fit just perfectly. For some people who want it to be really tight, I recommend to order them in your normal street size. (Note that the shoes are made from synthetic material, so they won't stretch much) They are a bit wider in the front than the original Anasazi VS and tighter in the heels. The rubber in the front of the shoes really steps up the toe hooking game. The Stealth C4 rubber is very very sticky. Edging and smearing become easier and for the first time, I found myself being able to rely on my shoes completely. The rubber came quite stiff, but it will be softer after around 5 sessions. Definitely worth the price. Can only recommend.
