The Anasazi Lace-up Pink is back. After a number of years out of the limelight (not to mention grit light, granite light and rhyolite!), this old favourite has been refashioned and re-tweaked for the next generation. The Pink is the ultimate in precession rock climbing shoes, and is particularly suited to slabby to vertical (and just beyond) terrain, where sensitivity, support and feel are paramount.
Combining popular facets of the old Five Ten Pink and the now discontinued Anasazi White, as well as some wholly new features, this revised climbing shoe classic should prove an instant hit with fans of all previous Anasazi incarnations.
The heel has been completely overhauled and bears little similarity to any of its predecessors; being both far closer fitting, with less dead space, and much more sensitive throughout. The shape of the toe box is something of a cross between the old Anasazi Pink and White - a little less bunched than the White, yet not as flat and pointy as the original Pink. The rigidity appears to be a close match to the original Pink shoe and the ubiquitous synthetic Cowdura upper will be instantly recognisable, from both a visual and tactile view point, to all long-term Anasazi users.
Overall a great climbing shoe, ideal for performance sport and trad climbing.
Sizing: Thankfully the sizing seems pretty similar to the other popular Anasazi's (VC, White Lace-up, Verde). If anything it may be ever so slightly smaller.
