Pros & Cons

Reasons to buy:

User Reviews

  • Padded on the top for extra comfort.
  • Specially built for low-volume feet and run smaller and narrower than most models (they may not be suitable for people with wider feet).
  • Comfortable enough to wear all day.
  • The pointy toe allows for good balance on small holds.
  • The heel does not dig into the achilles tendon.

Expert Reviews

  • Exceptionally grippy and responsive to features.
  • Performs well while edging and does particularly well while climbing cracks.
  • The velcro is easily adjustable for different foot widths.
  • The double tab at the heel makes them easy to slip on.
  • The material does not stretch out much over time, so the fit you get at the beginning is the fit you stay with.

Reasons NOT to buy:

User Reviews

  • The material starts to smell bad after some wear.
  • They are expensive.
  • Not extremely durable.

Expert Reviews

  • Not a good choice for toeing in sport climbs or on boulders.
  • The rubber wears out quickly, and the shoe is overall less durable than those of a similar price.


The Five Ten Anasazi LV Climbing Shoe for women is built for low-volume feet, and runs smaller and narrower than typical climbing shoes. The shoe offers good, sticky rubber and a sole that performs exceptionally well on edging and small footholds, and is responsive to the rock. Their comfort is top-notch, although for an expensive shoe, it is not very durable and the rubber wears out quickly.
