Five Ten Anasazi VCS Climbing Shoe
The Five Ten Anasazi VCS is an all-round climbing shoe designed to be a little different: the Anasazi VCS features a flat profile, making it one of the most comfortable "all-round" shoes on the market. Not only that, it's incredibly sensitive. On edges and smears on long multipitch routes, or on granite crack climbs and trad routes with low friction, the Anasazi VCS will undoubtedly reassure you that comfort is sometimes the key to success - it's not all about masochism all the time! It's also a non-aggressive gateway for the beginner seeking a high-performance all-round shoe that can be taken sport climbing or bouldering, indoor or out.
The Anasazi VCS features a lined synthetic upper, which means there will be the absolute minimum amount of stretch. Remember to size appropriately. If you're looking for a low-volume version, try the Anasazi LV Women's.

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.

This shoe is a medium level climbing weapon! Better on vertical than the overhangs.!Very very sticky rubber and power to the front.....i size them 1 size down but the netx pair i will get them 1.5 down....generally 0.5 -1 size down its very good...but i want more power so......
It seems that now also the brown Anasazi VCS (golden tan) comes with Stealth C4 per default instead of the harder and more durable Stealth OnyXX rubber (which is also better for edging).
Other shops list the brown Anasazi VCS (no "V2" in the name any more) with C4 sole, some list it as 2018 version.
Here in the epicTV shop they forgot to change the description, because i ordered a golden tan Anasazi VCS to get one with the Stealth OnyXX rubber and got the shoes with C4!
I had to pay for the return myself.
So just be warned if you want the OnyXX one.
The violet one doesn't seem to be manifactured any more (there is no point if the brown one has C4, why a violet one also with C4?).
Lets see when the Anasazi Pro gets available (same as Aansazi VCS V2, but with pre installed toe hook patch of Mi6 rubber 8the one from the Team VXi), the breathable tongue from the Quantum + a little bit more heel tension.
Comes in brown and the LV version in Red - both with C4 rubber.
So WHY gets the "old" Anasazi VCS also JUST C4 rubber any more? Where is the OnyXX rubber for edging and for more support for the feet on longer roots, f.e. alpine stuff?
The Anasasi 5:10 climing shoes or pés de gato as we call it in portuguese are Fckucking awesome! Give me those 30€ so i can re purchase the same ones! and keep doing that ;D
I'm climbing in these shoes for 10 years. Every time I bought another type/brand I've been disappointed. Will not buy anything else.
I've been using this shoe for a couple of months now, and I'm quite satisfied. I mainly use them for outdoor sport climbing. They have a very good grip, and are overall quite comfortable out of the box. (i wear the same size as my street shoe) They have a tight fit, and they don't really stretch. I've tried to climb multiple pitches in them, but the pain was unbearable after 3-4 long pitches. I wouldn't recommend them for multipitch use.
As a conclusion i would say that they're worth the money. Great quality and great performance all-around, but not a wear-all-day kind of shoe.
