Five Ten Shoe Sizing Guide

The Five Ten Anasazi VCS is the ultimate all-round performance climbing shoe that every climber should own at least once! 

If longevity is the sign of a great design then the Five Ten Anasazi VCS may possibly be the greatest rock climbing shoe of all time. Now with a better fitting heel cup that reduces dead space, whilst still pushing the foot forward, and Five Tens most durable rubber; Stealth® C4™ rubber.

Initially quite stiff, in its first phase of life the VCS is a great edging shoe that is fantastic for limestone sport climbing and bouldering. With use the shoe softens up and takes on a different guise - the perfect grit shoe - soft, sensitive, and very very sticky; perfect for those blank slab test-pieces.

  • Outsole: Stealth® C4™ rubber (4.2mm)

Excellent service - upgraded shoes

Rock + run made an error when I placed my order and they did not have the rock shoes I requested available. However, they promptly upgraded me to a more expensive pair for the same price. Excellent service all round!

Have struggled to get decent climbing shoes in a size 13 for my son - these seem to be doing the job. At last! Would be good to have a bigger choice though.

Superb shoe!

This is my second pair of Anasazis, I lost one up the Cuillins and immediately ordered another pair - the lost one was recovered and returned so I now have two pairs! For sizing purposes stick to your normal size, and don’t wear socks or they may be pretty painful. Mine are pretty neat but I can last a couple of hours before I need to pull them off. The newer C4 soles seem to be a fraction bigger than the Onyxx versions. They don’t stretch They are brilliant for anything other than horrible overhanging stuff, which I can’t climb anyway! Precise enough for tiny ledges, and once they lose their initial stiffness they smear well. I’m constantly astounded with what you can get purchase on with a pair of Anasazis. Don’t really do heel hooking but they seem to conform to the shape of my heel well. Rock and Run’s service has been faultless with keen pricing, wide range of stock and prompt delivery.

Great pair of shoes

Really good pair of shoes. Don't fit them too small. Super sticky rubber and the great heel (don't listen to the haters).
