Five.Ten Anasazi Slipper Reviews
Reviewed by Sam Walmsley (England) on 2005-12-28:
General comments: Look around any crag in the UK, or indeed any indoor wall, and you will see a lot of 5.10s Anasazis in their various incarnations. The reason for this is that they perfom so well (and probably a bit of fashion). 5.10 rubber is always very sticky (which unfortunately means that it doesn't last that long), so smearing performance is good, and for as long as the edges last you can stand on very thin holds as well.
I bought the slipper instead of the other models (velcro or lace up) because it's so much cheaper. The downside of this is that you can't adjust the fit much, but I haven't felt this is a huge problem, although I guess it depends on the size of your feet.
If you're vegetarian the othe good thing about these is that they are entirely synthetic, so you don't have to feel guilty about wearing them. This also means they don't stretch as much as some other models, something to bear in mind if you usually buy shoes expecting them to 'bag out' a bit. Do this with these and you will suffer for as long as you own them.
In summary, among the best shoes on the market at the moment. It's just a shame they wear out so quickly
Pros: Excellent performance, cheap(ish)
Cons: Wear out fast
