FIVE TEN ANASAZI BLANCO MEN'S CLIMBING SHOE

The Blanco is the most aggressive shoe in the Anasazi line. For 2016, we have updated the midsole to thermoplastic so the Blanco retains its famously stiff platform even longer. The eye stay also has been updated to a welded construction to make the shoe even sleeker. The heel rand has the most tension out of any Anasazi and the outsole is Stealth® C4™ making this one of the most powerful edging shoes in the world.

FIVE TEN ANASAZI BLANCO MEN'S CLIMBING SHOE is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It just gets better This is my third pair of climbing shoes. First, La sportiva finales. Then five ten pinks. I love the pinks. They fit me like a glove, are comfortable, and stick like glue. At first, the Blancos we're stiff as a board, and the pressure from the heel rand was pretty uncomfortable on my toes. After a handful of gym sessions, the Blancos have softened up a bit and lacing them all the way has taken some of the pressure off my toes. I can now wear them comfortably for over an hour. They feel like a stiffer version of the pinks now. I don't say this when the pinks are in the room, but these may be my new favorite shoes. Adidas, don't drop these incredible shoes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best edging shoe on the market I first heard of the Blancos through an online campaign to urge Five Ten to bring them back. When they were finally re-released, I bought a pair. They lived up to the hype - and then some. While most edging shoes (e.g: LS Miuras) sacrifice stickiness for stiffness to create an edging platform, the Blanco somehow manages to do both, making it the ultimate shoe for...just about anything, as long as it’s short. Make no mistake about it - while they may share the same last with the Tans/Pinks, this is a totally different shoe in its own, with a much stiffer midsole and crazy aggressive heel tension, so the one drawback is that you definitely will want to take them off after a pitch. The result is a shoe that can edge on a dime, smear fantastically, and even perform admirably on the steeps. In a word - these shoes are perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stand on anything I've had the pinks for a while in tight boulder/sport project size and the VCS's in a sport/short trad size. I love the toe on both but this does live up to the hype, it really can edge much better even though I sized it more comfortably than the pinks. The laces give you much more control to ratchet down the back vs the vcs but my narrow heel is still a long ways from touching anything in the cup. If the vcs doesn't fit your heel, this won't either but if you have another pair of shoes for serious hooking, there's a place for this in your arsenal if you need to stand on dimes for a boulder or just stay comfortable on tiny edges for long routes in the near vertical angle world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Goldilocks of edging shoes I've owned a few pairs of these over the years and for almost any situation they fit the bill. They are not as stiff or precise as a Sportiva miura vs (though people make that claim), but far more sensitive. The toe shape is incredible, I find myself able to edge in any manner I need to. These shoes strike an unbelievable balance for me with edging, because of the blunted toe shape I find myself able to smear well compared to a more radical edging shoe. The heel feels like it would be worthless but manages to hold marginal hooks better than most bouldering shoes I've owned. The only downside is that the toe doesn't fit into pockets particularly well. I have low volume, long feet and wear a size 10 in freeriders. The 8.5 in blancos is a tight performance fit, but I somehow find them comfortable for hours of use without taking them off. These shoes rip granite edges apart, there is no better shoe in my mind. So glad they are back in stock.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great design, high price, questionable QC I had the earlier model and really liked them. They held up well to a resole. I know 5.10 has had some quality issues since being acquired by Adidas. I've had to warranty some Moccasyms myself. Considering that, I am interested to see how this new model holds up. As far as fit and quality of build goes it seems great out of the box. The toe box is different, but sizing is the same as the last model for me. Very stiff shoe and very good at focusing your power into the great toe. Incredible deal at $55 with their current promotions and coupons. But the MSRP is ridiculously high. I don't think I'd ever pay MSRP of $180 for any climbing shoes. Wait until they are on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality! Very stiff rubber and sharp edges on front of shoe make for very good edging and appropriate for small foot hoods. Not so great for smearing. Pretty shoe, great clean look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoe Love my shoes. They do run small, so order up in size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wrong size and heel too aggressive for me I only tried these shoes on briefly with thin socks but they were too small. The heel is a bit aggressive for me as well or is the wrong shape for my foot type. I have a normal width foot, high arch and high instep, heel is what I would call average for most people. I ordered size 8, too small, I wear an 8.5 in most everyday shoes. I might have fit in a 9 but they weren't available at the time of ordering. The shoe felt like an excellent edging shoe upon my initial opening, fairly stiff platform or sole. I currently climb in a pair of 5.10 shoes that look similar to the anasazi guides but they are blue and I bought them 12 years ago so I'm not sure of the model. I will be ordering a pair of the guides next because they are more relaxed, in size 8.5, hope they fit. I mostly top rope in the gym and climb outside some in the summer. I look to start lead climbing this summer outdoors so I want something pretty comfortable. Hope this helps someone.
