Description

All the greatness of the Anasazi, built just for women.

Created specifically for women, the Five Ten Women's Anasazi LV Climbing Shoe specializes in narrower feet and still holds Anasazi's standards for high friction and technical climbing. With the longer toe box, lower instep, higher arch, and lower-volume heel cup modifications, this Anasazi snugly encloses the narrower foot. With such solid, foot-hugging support, you'll stay comfortable whether you edge through techy routes, work on that new boulder problem in the gym, or smear your way up an all-day slab-fest.

  • Synthetic Cowdura reduces stretch potential, but expect the shoe to still stretch a half size over time
  • Women-specific alterations include low instep, high arch, low volume heel cup, and a longer and skinnier toe box
  • Hook-and-loop closure lets you quickly remove or put on your shoe no matter where you are on the wall
  • Stealth C4 rubber makes the sole stiff and sticky, which allows excellent edging and high friction
  • Low to moderate asymmetrical curvature makes this shoe ideal for vertical and slab climbing
  • Fits street shoe size (keep minimal stretch in mind)

Great entry-level climbing shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

This was my first pair of climbing shoes, so they hold a special place in my heart. They treated me well. I, however, was not as kind to them. My many months of slab climbing and toe-dragging caused their poor, innocent rubbers to deteriorate away, resulting in a gapping hole in both toes.

The rubber on these shoes is known to go fast. But honestly, as an entry level shoe, by the time that happens it's probably time to up your game to a slightly more aggressive shoe. This shoe is pretty flat - making it SUPER comfortable but not as functional on steeper walls and smaller holds.

Would definitely recommend these shoes to any lady wanting to get serious about climbing, but not sure where to start.

I found them to run small, so size up!

Love FiveTen!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm in love with these shoes. The Anasazi LV's are an excellent overall shoe for any type of climber. Just a little background...I've been climbing for about 3 years now (gym, sandstone,granite) and Anasazi's rocked it :)

Stealth C4 rubber is super sticky. The cowdura does stretch a bit, but just size accordingly. My street size is a 6.5 and I have really thin width feet, so I went with 1/2 size down and they are perfect!
I really have no complaints about these shoes. Will definitely buy some more real soon since my right toe box is letting my little piggies get some fresh air [toe hole/normal wear and tear].

Anasazi LV

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

I just started climbing in these shoes for a little while now. 2-3 times a week in the gym and once outside.
Initially I wasn't thrilled because they're much stiffer and less aggressive than I'm used to. I got over the shock of feeling flat and stiff quickly and realized how awesome these shoes are! They're awesome for slab, edge nicely and are comfortable enough to wear for extended amounts of time. My only complaint is that they're not so hot on heel hooks and basically useless for toe hooks but they're not really made for that...
I think it's safe to say that I'll be sticking with these from now on unless I'm on a steep over hang or need to throw some serious heels.
I bought the same size (8) as I wear in street shoes and they fit exactly how I want them to.

(Almost) Quiver of One

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

I've gone through three (resoled) pairs of these.

These have been my "quiver of one" shoe for the gym and the outdoors. They stick like no other. They're soft enough to be sensitive; they have enough of a power toe to give performance; and yet they can still edge some. They're comfortable enough (for me at least) to wear for a couple pitches, but don't sacrifice performance. Cracks were no problem either. They're pretty good at everything.

Major cons were (1) durability: the rubber on these shoes seems to just evaporate right off, and is prone to separating at the edge where the sole meets the toe; and (2) specificity: for any given type of climbing (steep, small edges, etc.) you can probably find a better shoe...but you'd be hard-pressed to find one as versatile.

I took close to my street size (roughly 9-9.5, took 9.5) in these and it was a hair snug, but the correct size for me.

Gecko Feet!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

These shoes are still being broke in! Ouch! However, they are so sticky that i feel like a gecko. I am just getting further into climbing, and these shoes have helped me use my legs, and trust them way better!

These run small!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I normally wear an 8 or 8.5 in street shoes, therefore followed everyone's advice to order your street size. I went with the 8.5s and they are still quite small. I get hot spots on my heels especially, and I thought they would break in better but they just don't stretch that much (synthetic). Next time I will order a 9. For now, I will just wear for climbing outside when it's time to tie in; standing around or walking in these around the gym is excruciatingly uncomfortable.

They are sticky and have good edging capabilities. I guess my main complaint is the fit!

Five Ten Anasazi LV

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

My normal shoe size is US9.5. I probably could have bought the US9 for a perfect fit for my right foot but my left foot is half a size larger so I opted for the US9.5. I have very slender feet and long middle toes and the shoes fit well. I had to cut the velcro so I could make them tighter for my narrow feet but apart from that, they feel great on the rock.

Dream!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These shoes are incredible. Sticky, comfortable, and ready to tackle some sport or bouldering. I wouldn't necessarily use them for long trad climbes but great to give you that little extra confidence!

If the shoe fits...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

Wear them! These shoes are fantastic for both the gym and crag. The 5.10 Anasazi LV has treated me just fine from the plastic to the sharp monzogranite of Joshua Tree and the slimy granite slabs of Yosemite. I wear a street shoe size 7.5 but purchased a size 7 to account for the "minimal stretch". A very tight squeeze at first, but after just a few wears the synthetic Cowdura uppers stretched just a tiny bit to form a solid fit. Not to mention animal-friendly and quite comfortable once you wear them in! Stealth rubber is, as always, awesome and keeps me feeling super secure on tiny edges and precise technical moves. Great shoe for those transitioning from gym to outdoors.

climbin like a lady erry dang day!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

First off, I love these shoes. Everythin' about them, EVVERRRYYYTHINNNGGG.

I am a guy with 9.5 inch feet and I wear a pair of 8.5's in these as my high performance lead/boulder shoe. As a guy, I downsized 2 sizes from my foot size and the break-in period took about 1+ month of serious climbing. Now they are perfectly molded to my footbox, toes, heelcup, and arch.

I have a high arch, and a smaller heel and these are exactly what i needed in a high performance flat soled shoe.

The Steath rubber is mega grippy, without sacrificing durabilty, I mostly bouldered in them for 6 months before the toe started to thin out and I was in need of a resole. Easily the most confidence inspiring shoe I have when on Slab, Vert, or even slightly overhanging terrain.

My go-to shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have a few pairs of climbing shoes and these are the ones I keep coming back to. I'm not really a hardcore climber but really enjoy it and have found these to be the best shoes for a tight fit and heel cup, while giving me a high performance grip. I have a narrow heel but wider toebox, and this shoe is fine for me- the heel is the most important part in my opinion. I used to like laces more but have found the velcro is just so much easier and faster to take on and off, and also to adjust. The FiveTen rubber is unmatched- the best rubber hands down for a climbing shoe.

How do these compare to Five Ten Moccs in...

How do these compare to Five Ten Moccs in terms of fit and sizing? I have small feet that are a bit wider at the toes, and I got the Moccs in a 36 (M4.5, W6). They're very comfy, maybe a teensy bit loose after lots of wear and a resole. My street shoe is a solid 36, somewhere between W5.5-6. I have narrow heels, but I'm concerned the LVs will be too narrow in the toe.

Hey Mailee
My foot shape is really similar to yours. I have a wide last width and a really high arch and narrow heels, these fit really well. However these do not fit anything like the Moccs do. The Anasazi do run small so get a size up from your street shoe size. I am 5.5-6 as well and I got the size 7 and they fit perfectly and like I said in my review they are ready to use out of the box and have little to no break in time. If you do get these shoes I hope you enjoy them and if you have any questions please get a hold of me through our live chat feature. My name is Jane H. and I'm on during Mon,Wed and Fri afternoons till 10pm MST. CLIMB ON!

Out of the box fun!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got these on October 2nd and went climbing with them immediately! They were awesome for being brand spanking new. I did size up like April Mentioned below I normally wear a 6 in street shoes and the 7's fit perfectly! The placement of the straps offer so much support and security throughout the whole foot. The rubber is awesome I had no problem getting them to stick while climbing. I haven't tried bouldering or gym climbing with them yet but so far I'm really stoked on them!

***UPDATE***
So after having these for a bit and climbing with then I have to say that I'm super impressed. They are a great all around shoe. I am a lifer for these shoes. Just went to mule hollow in Big Cottonwood Canyon, Utah and slayed a multi-pitch slab no problem! Also took these to American Fork Canyon, Utah and climbed some 10's with ease. The break in time was short and not as painful as I thought it would be. Wore them at the gym and had no problem with sport or bouldering. I love these shoes and look forward to getting another pair after I have destroyed these.

Out of the box fun!

Runs Small now

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

Great Shoes but I ordered these in an 8.5 because that is the size I wear most the time in shoes or boots, Sometimes I need a size 9. These do not stretch because the are made with the synthetic leather and my footsies were smooshed to the max. I ended up going with a size 9.5. So if you are Beginner or Intermediate climber please order either a half size up or one full size larger. I did speak with an Expert climber who is a co-worker and she did state that previous season shoes ran bigger. But the newer seasons have run small. Otherwise love these shoes!

3 pairs and many other shoes later...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I've been climbing since 2009 and I've owned and tried many other shoes since then but I keep coming back to the Anasazi lvs. There is nothing out there that are quite as sticky that fit perfectly with my low volume women's feet. I climb (indoors) 4 to 5 times a week and outdoors about 3-4 times a month (in the summer). I have many shoes in my arsenal, Scarpa Rockettes (size 37) for bouldering and overhanging projects, Scarpa Vapor Vs (size 37.5) for longer outdoor/indoor lead routes, la sportiva Miura VS (size 36) for bouldering and outdoor projects, la sportiva cobra's for easy climbs, and my Sazi Lvs (size 6.5 and 7) as my all-around shoes. If I need something reliable, comfortable and super sticky I pull these babies out. They are my favorite shoes by far for most of my climbing. The Stealth rubber is the stickiest rubber I've used that I dare say, it beats vibram's edge and xs grip. You'll notice the difference when you're sticking those toes to the smallest chips. When you require shoes that are reliable, comfortable and super sticky--- the Anasazi LVs fit that bill perfectly. They don't last quite as long as vibrams but they are sticky as hell and truly worth the price. I've tried other shoes and I still go back to the sazis every time. They are just well designed and well built, worth every penny you pay for them.

Perfect for narrow feet!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I love the Anasazi LV shoes for my small,narrow feet! I found these shoes to fit true to size and not much stretch at all after breaking them in. The Stealth C4 rubber is amazing, so much friction, you really can feel it! These are my most comfortable shoes ever, I can wear them all day if I need to. I really like these for trad/sport climbing but wear them bouldering often. I would recommend these for any narrow foot!
