Description

The right shoe for the hardest pitches.

Just when you thought the Anasazi line couldn't get any more technical, Five Ten introduces the ridiculously precise Anasazi Verdi Climbing Shoe. Five Ten replaced the one weakness of the popular Anasazi Lace-Up, the baggy heel, with a new low-profile, close-fitting design.
  • Lined synthetic upper keeps stretch to a minimum
  • Incredibly sticky Stealth Onyxx rubber works on the smallest, worst footholds
  • Full-length laces ensure a precise fit for ultra-technical pitches

they're pretty good

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

iv had these shoes for about a year now and they preform well but the cut heel puts pressure on the Achilles. The rubber that runs the top of the shoe on the sides started separating from the the shoe only a few weeks after using them, they still preform very well but not the must comfortable shoe in my opinion (mostly because that cut heel). Works very well in cracks, technical face and not bad on over hung terrain. Maybe i just sized to small for this shoe. Although I have a friend with the same shoe and the rubber around the top started to peel on his as well after a week or so.

Solid Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Been rocking these shoes for when I'm top roping indoors - had been Brooklyn Boulders before moving west - for the past 6 months. Overall, I really like these shoes as I've been able to increase my climbing game (5.10-5.11s depending on gym), and have tons of confidence in their grip from tiny footholds to just cramming myself into corners. I had previously been in the 5.10 Coyotes, and these are obviously a step up and not as forgiving on fit. In other words, while I'm still wearing a size 8 in the 5.10s (typically wear 7.5-8.0 street shoe), they haven't expanded nearly as much as the Coyotes (no surprise as they have a synthetic liner). They probably took about a couple of weeks to break in, and were pretty painful (guessing expanded 0.5 size). And I still have to pull them off after climbing. That said, I think the fit has worked out great, and the shoe has performed awesome. I'd recommend them.

The shoes in the video are the old Pink's, which have evolved into the Anasazi Blanco's, not the Verde's.

fantastic, stiff, and stinky

If I had to bring one pair of shoes on a climbing trip, it would probably be these. Here's why:
These shoes are super comfy, durable, versatile on all kinds of rock, steepness. i've even worn these bouldering. the relatively flat sole has stayed stiff through many wears, and hasn't lost its camber. the rubber seems durable and stiff, which i tend to prefer in most applications. - if you like stiff shoes, you will probably like this.
these are definitely my go-to for trad climbing, i'm not a crack master but have done a few in these with good impressions.
one of the reviewers said they didn't seem to last long, which hasn't been my experience at all. some of the rand has come undone from the cowdura, but as far as i can tell that doesn't affect performance at all.
some minor drawbacks:
- price. $160, really? i got lucky and got these for $75 on sale, but i don't think i'd be able to plunk down $160.
- SO. STINKY. i have never owned such a stinky pair of shoes. i need to find a way around this if i want to keep my climbing partners.
- lacing system is somewhat tedious. These definitely take a long time to take off, I usually have to pull the laces through completely. I bought these in a "comfy" fit, i.e., they were not uncomfrotable when I first bought them and they have only stretched a little. That said, I find them comfortable enough and technical enough that I never really feel like I have to tear them off as soon as I finish a pitch, but part of that is probably also because they take so long to take on and off.
- with a flat sole, these probably won't be as good as some of the ridiculously downturned shoes that are popular these days, so if you're primarily a boulderer or love overhangs, you might want to consider something else. of course, these still are great on overhangs, they just won't be the talons that will grab onto anything as you wildly swing around.

Built to last

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I usually climb Sportivas and now I know why. I love the verde and it climbs super well but doesn't last too long. It's probably been about 2 months and the shoe is starting to fall apart. Great shoe but wouldn't recommend it. The Muira would be a better choice i think.

I have been climbing with my Verdes for 8 months and they still look and feel quite new. I think they are a high quality buy and would say they last a long time

How does this shoe fit in comparison to the Anasazi?

How well will these shoes crack climb?...

Posted on

How well will these shoes crack climb? Fingers, hands, or offwidth. I'm in search for an excellent trad and out door shoe that will preform well in cracks and on super thin faces.

If you think this shoe isnt appropriate, please share your suggestions!

Responded on

These are generally the shoes that strike the perfect balance between smearability and edgeability. The La Sportiva mythos and the Anasazi moccasyms are great for cracks.

The Verde

Good quality shoe. I am on my second pair now. When I first started climbing I had the original Anasazi verde and I didn't realize how great they were. After having climbed la Sportiva and a bunch of cheap Evolv's I am glad to be back in 5.10's. They are simply better.
The rubber is great. Very sticky and long lasting. I use the Verde's for trad and sport warm ups. Not a shoe for bouldering or steep projects.
Get them and enjoy!

I got a new pair (not from backcountry)...

Posted on

I got a new pair (not from backcountry) and I found that the shoe looks different from my old pair and the various pictures of the shoe online (even on Five Ten's own website). So I posted a picture for comparison. The left-most picture shows the new logo design on the side of the shoe. The middle picture shows the way that the "stealth onyxx" rubber is written, compared to the orange onyxx lettering found on my old pair and online. The third shows the old design and is the one I have seen online. So the question is, did they redesign the verde at some point or did I get a counterfeit shoe??? :) If they redesigned it, does it still fit the same?

Often the photos are taken right before production runs. Often as they make more, the colors change. Its the same with skis and the decals. Not sure why it happens. Also the photos are provided from the manufacturer, not of the products on hand.

How does the sizing compare to the hornets?...

Posted on

How does the sizing compare to the hornets? I wear a 9.5-10 street shoe and have a wide forefoot. I had to get the hornets in a 10 and they were painfully tight.

Responded on

These shoes have a solid fit to them. They won't stretch. You could probably wear a 9 in theses. I wear 10 street shoe and have these in 9's. They will still be a comfy flat shoes once broken-in.

5.10 Anasazi Lace ups

Love these shoes, i've probably climbed close to 100+ days on them and they are still going strong. I like my shoes very tight, i am a 10.5-11 street shoes and got a 8.5 in these. can stand on anything thing with them, smears great, jams great, best shoe i've ever owned. The break in period was pretty ruff sense i bought them so tight, after one route my toes would feel like they were about to break, but after a few days in them they started to form my feet and are pretty comfy now. Highly Recommended.

verde!

These shoes are great. they edge great which is crucial for a lot of the Smith Rocks climbing I do. The rubber is super sticky (so stick that if you climb a lot the soles wear out pretty quickly). Just don't bust through the rand and get 'em resoled. The heel fits great and sticks to heel hooks super well. They do lose their stiffness over time but i notice that my feet have gotten stronger from these shoes cause i just bought my second pair and can stick to just about anything!

love them

I can only say good things about the verdes. The edge lasts forever! plus i like lace ups. Great shoe no doubt. i sized down a half size from 9 to 81/2.

Great shoe, roomy heel

Love it, but more heel room than I wanted, took a little to break in and I climb quite a bit. Overall great shoe but super agro boulder problem heal hooks cn pull it off the heel enough to raise the heart rate. Otherwise excellent shoe.

very sticky rubber

These shoes have a mid-wide last that is good for my wider feet. The run pretty close to my street shoe size, I think I only went down half a size from my running shoes and gained a lot of control.

The rubber on these is unreal. Smearing becomes a full blown foot hold.
