Anasazi goes pro.
Professional climber Shauna Coxsey wore Five Ten Women's Anasazi Pro Climbing Shoe prototypes when she won the IFSC Bouldering World Cup in 2017. Not only did she send in them, but she also worked with Five Ten designers to make a show worthy of her powerful prowess. Compared to the original Anasazi, the Anasazi Pro boasts a little more heel tension to provide better aggression and precision. The toe patch is also a new update to the Anasazi family, and it's made of Five Ten's stickiest Stealth Mi6 rubber for reliable friction. The bottom rubber is Five Ten's ever-trustful Stealth C4 rubber that Coxsey admittedly used when she first started climbing at the age of four.

UPDATED REVIEW -- SIZE UP!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'm just writing a review here because there aren't any yet and I find reviews to be super helpful for me. Backcountry didn't have my size in this shoe so I took a chance and ordered the half size down that was available. Nope! FiveTen seems to run consistently small in their climbing shoes, so I ended up going elsewhere and ordering a full size up from my street shoe size like I did with my lace-up Rogues (which fit perfectly until they stretched after a year of use). I haven't received them yet, but I will update my review when I get them and try them out.
All of that being said, I can't say enough about the great customer service I receive with EVERY. SINGLE. ORDER. I love it, I feel like a high roller with my personal attendee. Excellent! 10/10!
I have been climbing with these shoes for a month or so now and I LOVE them. They broke in easily after a couple of days of climbing, and they are comfy AF. Definitely size up. I bought a full size up from my street shoe and they fit perfectly. I wear them even while belaying, only un-strapping the velcro after an hour or so. They're sticky and the rubber on the toe is helpful in those toe-hook situations. They were super stiff at first and I felt like my toes had gone blind; my Rogues had been so nicely broken-in and sensitive, and suddenly I felt like I couldn't trust my feet. But that went away after a day or two.
