Grip It with Style

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

Amazingly, these are actually comfortable. They curve your feet aggressively, not nearly like a LS Futura or 5.10 Hiangle, but enough, and the curve perfectly balances your weight when you're just standing around. The older versions use the Stealth ONYXX rubber, better for edging, but the C4 on my newer-style ones seems fine to me, especially with how stiff the synthetic upper is. Sometimes it's harder to smear because the shoes don't loosen up much to match the wall, but not too difficult, and the stiffness really helps with edging.

I've also received a few compliments on high-top feel and look, and while the heelcup isn't much bigger than the normal anasazi, it definitely seems bigger, and a little ankle support is nice too.

I fit 7.5/8 street shoes and the 7.5's feel great. My big toe is a little wide, and it's a little sore after 1.5-2hrs, but that's pretty good in terms of comfort. I'd recommend them to anyone, really. I mostly climb V4's/V5's right now, so if I was trying to get into the V6/V7 range, I might pick something even more aggressive, but I'm really happy with these.

Just tried these out last weekend at indian creek. I love how these shoes fit and are very comfortable, the ankle protection for wider cracks is nice as well. I went down a half a size for a comfortable all day fit. These are unlined leather so they will stretch.

Anasazi High Top

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Bought these shoes for multi-pitch trad and sport climbing. Sized 2 sizes down they respond like a super agressive bouldering shoe while still being incredibly comfortable. To wear all day size down 1.5. These things edge like crazy due to a slight down turn, and smear very well thanks to the C4 rubber. Tons of ankle protection is nice on cracks and velcro is convenient. Honestly can't imagine needing another shoe for anything other than a bouldering specialty shoe for V5+.

Anasazi Hi Top

    Fitted to street shoe size. I have the older ones in yellow. I like them as a comfortable performance shoe. Easy on and off. Not too much padding on the toes, though that may have changed this year. More downturned than I thought they would be, but I like that. Very sticky.

    I wear a size 10 street shoe. In Miuras I wear a 39.5 or 40. What size would you recommend on these shoes?

    I wear a 10.5 street shoe and sized these to 8.5. They are obviously pretty tight, but after stretch I wouldn't suggest going any other way. Size at least 1.5 and at most 2 sizes down. I was worried about the fit for about a week, but the first day I climbed in them I knew they were perfect.
