FIVE TEN ANASAZI BLANCO MENS CLIMBING SHOE

  • Material: POLYESTER
FIVE TEN ANASAZI BLANCO MENS CLIMBING SHOE is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
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 5 out of 5 by from The best edging shoe (that was) on the market. Hope they bring it back. The stiffness and insane heel tension (as opposed to downturn) make it the best shoe for vertical/slab edging, and the C4 rubber makes it super sticky, so it’ll hold its own on the steeps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome fit Shoes feel true to size. Somehow stretchy upper shoe. Breathable tongue as well. Heel feels very secure and snug.
