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.

    ... 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?

    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.

    Comments about Five Ten Anasazi VCS V2 Climbing Shoe:

    Amazing shoe, it is hard to get the toe into tight pockets. A little more flex would be appreciated, but it works. The velcro straps are great with solid metal loops. I wear a 10.5-11 in a street shoe, I ordered these in a 10 and they fit perfect. break-in isn't too bad, the worst part was the heel. I only boulder in these btw.

          Great shoe. Edges very well. The only downside I have experienced is that the when compared to other high performance bouldering shoes; the toe cannot fit in super tight pockets. The Velcro is very nice, makes getting in and out super easy!! The top side of the toe has gotten some abuse and shows some wear/scuffs, but not one sign of damage.

          Will re-purchase when I wear out my current pair.

            Comments about Five Ten Anasazi VCS V2 Climbing Shoe:

            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.

            If you could only have one shoe this should be it, great for all styles of climbing, but best for verty-techy climbing where you need to trust your feet.

              Comments about Five Ten Anasazi VCS V2 Climbing 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.
