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.

I did the purchase a few months ago. This shoe it doesn't open much, so choose your size accordingly to your foot shape and don't exaggerate. In my case, I didn't have a reference for comparison, I took the risk and bought the shoe 1.5 times below my regular size. After a few months of fighting with the shoes, I can say that 1.5 times below your size is a great motivation for faster climbing. You can also improve your skills in cursing instantly at any step on your way up, or in learning to weep more silently as the time goes by.
Very good feel!
Very stiff (but not like the Blancos) which makes it great for vertical terrain and small overhangs. The toe hook is extremely good but when I heel hook I feel it a little loose.
My street shoe size is 43 and I got this shoes size 41. After 5 sessions it was ok and now,after 1.5 month, it is very comfortable.
I totally recommend it!
Has used Anasazi VCS since -95 and every new modification of the model is getting better. The heel of the "modern" Anasazi actually fits the heel :)
There seems to be more room / loft in the toe area which makes a more comfortable shoe than before - of course depending on your goals with the shoe.
Size-wise, I use a 1.5 sizes smaller than normal sneaker size and then have a tight but still quite comfortable size.
If I'm going to say something negative - the graphical design on the pull loops could have been better harmonized with the model's 'native' background. But then I'm being very superficial ;)
Idéal pour les grandes voies dures, chausson sans cambrure avec une faible asymétrie tout en restant précis en pointe. Parfait pour les longues journées sur la paroie ! En ce qui concerne la taille je conseil de choisir le confort au premier chaussage, le talon doit être bien à ça place mais les orteils pas trop écrasé.
Le top !
All day comfort with pretty good all around performance, maybe not your first pick for a roof but certainly does the trick whatever you’re getting yourself into. Lined synthetic gives you the right fit out of the box that breaks in without really stretching.
