How does the size on these compare to the Five Ten Blackwing?
For reference, I wear a 10 in the Blackwing, and a 41 in La Sportiva Miuras. I've tried wearing the Anasazi Lace-Up in a 9, and it felt about a half size too small for me (the aggressive heel was killing my achilles tendon.) I'm wondering if a 9.5 will work in these?
My street shoe is between 10 and 10.5, long, narrow feet.
I have long narrow feet and personally I can't get comfortable in Five Ten's. I have to size down too much to take out the extra width, but then my toes and achilles are too tight. If I were you'd I'd just stick with La Sportiva or maybe check out Scarpa, the Feroce is a great shoe that's similar to this.
Ok I'll answer my own question. The Arrowhead runs bigger than the Blackwing. A 10 in Blackwing fits perfectly, and a 10 in Arrowhead fits about a half size too big.
So here's a reference chart for some Five Ten fits (for a street size between 10 and 10.5:
Blackwing - 10
Arrowhead - 9.5
Coyote - 9 - 9.5
Supermocc - 8.5 - 9
Moccasym - 8.5 - 9
Ryan - extra width? These arrowheads are about the narrowest shoes I've ever seen. I have wide feet and there was just no way these were going to work. I did love the heel, it's very snug.
I was going to check out Feroce's, I tried on a base Scarpa model and was impressed with the width in the forefoot area. Are the Feroce's more narrow?
stupid duck feet...
