Five Ten Women’s Anasazi | $155 |

fiveten.com €??€??€??€??

The Anasazi, a favorite among sport climbers and boulderers because of its grabby rubber, down-turned toe and lightweight yet supportive design, now comes in a women’s version. A lower-volume variation of the original, this narrower shoe utilizes the same thin, synthetic uppers, giving it the lightness of a slipper with the performance of a shoe. The two Velcro straps, padded for comfort, make this high-performing shoe easily adjustable. A tensioned rand snugs down the stiff heel, which hooks perfectly despite being a bit baggy. However, because the Anasazi is such a lightweight shoe (i.e., there’s not much material between your foot and the rock), it’s not ideal for long routes. Despite these limitations, I’d spend all day in the Shawangunks bouldering or trad climbing the steeps in these puppies.
