Five Ten Anasazi Mesa
I'm giving this shoe a 5 star rating simply because…
Use: Cragging, multi-pitch, or in the gym.
Break-in Period: 3 to 4 climbing sessions
Weight: 1 lb I think
Price Paid: Can't remember
I'm giving this shoe a 5 star rating simply because it does exactly what it is supposed to. I should have gone with one size bigger, so I have always found my shoes a bit tight, but they stick like crazy, the toe-box is wonderful, I can stand on almost nonexistant edges. The smearing capabilities are a little weak, due to the stiffness of the sole, but once you get to know the shoe, the rubber does its job perfectly.
A great shoe for long edgy climbs, also great in cracks. All right in the gym, but more for the real world.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Five Ten added a fiberglass midsole to the Anasazi Mesa Climbing Shoes to give them supreme edging power and all-day comfort. These shoes keep foot fatigue to a minimum and provide excellent performance on all-day trad routes or dawn-to-dusk sport climbing sessions. The lined synthetic Cowdura uppers keep stretch to a minimum to reduce break-in time. Of course, the Anasazi Mesa Climbing Shoes feature Five Ten's ultra-sticky Stealth C4 rubber to give you top-notch friction for demanding footwork.
