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.

If you are used to the old Anasazi VCS when it was manufactured in the US then we suggest going a whole size up for the same fit

Anasazi VCS Climbing Shoe

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.

Fantastic Shoes

I always use La Sportiva climbing shoes, but one day I resole a pair of shoes for training with C4 and then I felt the big difference. I bought this shoes for trade climbing, but it's incredible in all kind of rock. I from Catalonia and I used it in Montserrat and others maintains and always worked fine. I recommend it a lot.

Be careful with the size

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.

In love with Anasazis

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!

Best allrounder. Since forever!

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 ;)

Précis et confort

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 !
