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

I am a committed 5.10 customer. I really like the Anasazi verdes, and I have had several pairs. When I saw these on sale I thought it was worth a shot. The shoe feels and climbs almost identical to the verde. They have a different rubber, but to be honest it feels the same. I have used them on hard steep limestone routes in American Fork Canyon, as well as long trad routes on granite in Little Cottonwood and Lone Peak, and they work great for everything. Just have to pop the heel off during belays to give my foot a rest because I size them snug enough to use for sport as well as trad. I wear a street shoe size 9, and got these in 8.5. Very happy with the fit.
They are great edging shoes, and the heel is comfortable and snug for the occasional heel hook.
I definitely recommend these shoes!

I use these for ice/mixed climbing and they're great. They are very water resistant for a soft shell, but still very flexible and stretchy. Very comfortable and fit well. I am pretty skinny, and they fit me great. Durable too. I have snagged my crampons on them and thought they might tear, but no holes yet! Great buy!

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!
