I bought this shoe not for it's primary purpose -- it's an approach shoe for rock climbers -- but for mountain biking because it's the lightest weight 5-10 women's shoe with the sticky stealth sole. That sole sticks to a platform pedal with spikes like glue, so it's perfect for biking. (Better, actually, than the 5-10 freestyle biking versions, which are so stiff in the sole that my feet hurt.) At the same time, it's comfortable enough for walking around. And the lavender/gray combination keeps even a clunky build (necessary for the shoe's function) from looking like you're wearing a man's shoe.

Pros- Grippy sole with a wide platform; great for when you have to dab in a rock garden and don't want to roll your ankle. My other shoes are SIDI Drakos and those things are like stilettos by comparison. SPD clip hooks up easily with pedal, yet, for the most part, does NOT bottom out on smooth surfaces (like a concrete driveway or kitchen floor). Sole is a terrific pedaling platform, stiff, but just flexible enough to walk in (after said dab in rock garden). Upper is thick and protective for the odd whack against a rock or tree; your feet are entombed in bank vault protection. I pulled the laces and threaded in Yankz elastic laces; skipped the top two holes and it makes getting in and out a breeze. The large velcro strap keeps the foot locked in with plenty of security. Cons - While all black is nice and unobtrusive, one of my riding buddies says "they look like orthopedic shoes to remedy a leg length discrepancy...” That has since morphed into me having club feet. There’s a Herman Munster vibe to them, but a lot of downhill shoes suffer the same; huge and skatey. Also, the shoe is a little heavy, but if I'm in gram-shaving-XC mode, I wear the SIDIs which are seriously light by comparison. Overall, if you're looking for an All Mountain shoe that's comfy, walkable, grippy and has clip compatibility, this is a great pick; just don't expect to win any fashion awards at the espresso bar or watering hole post ride!

Love the shoe, but the W = Medium width was too narrow. I thought W in men's shoes meant WIDE.

Excellent made shoe, Really heavy though, like a pound per shoe. The sole really grips my bike pedal, I have to pull my foot off the pedal to move it to a different spot. I wear a 10 1/2 these are 10 1/2 and fit good for the length but a little tight every where else. You can't lace these up tight it will put your feet to sleep, the leather is stiff. It will take a good bit of walking to break these shoes it, really stiff shoe.

Started out a little tight across top of foot but have broken in great. I bought them to bike in the soggy cold of tn mountains. They work great almost to sticky if that is possible. I love them so much I have ended up wearing them as my work shoe on wet days and bike in them every time.

It was time for me to "level up" with my climbing shoes. I had been using all-day-comfort shoes with practically no turndown. I wanted a more technical shoe to help me with bouldering. I tried several shoes before settling on the Anasazis. I felt that of all the more technical shoes these were the most comfortable, had a great level of stickiness and fit my feet well. I'm a woman with narrow feet and long toes but my feet are too large for most women's shoes. For men's shoes these are not too wide and the toe box fits me well. The heel has a little extra room in it but it doesn't seem to move when I heel-hook. The break-in period on these wasn't too bad. I tried three different sizes and went with a size 10 (I normally wear a street size of 11-12 in women's and 10.5 in mens). I did end up with some bruises on my big toes but nothing terrible. These have made a huge difference for me with bouldering as well as sport climbing. I definitely recommend them!

I've been wearing these about 3 weeks and I love them! They are light weight feeling and very comfortable. I've mountain biked in them a few times and commuted daily and I am fast becoming a flat pedal convert. I am tempted to buy more to hoard them for later!

My second pair of Five Ten shoes for mountain biking. First pair lasted 7 years. Great for what they're intended to do - stick to pins on platform pedals. I have two knee replacements and have been reluctant to lock on to pedals since my surgery. While riding I barely notice that I'm not really cleated to the pedals. But great if I need quick removal of feet from pedals (yeah, I do take occasional spills etc).

Bought this shoe for ankle support and protection for my Neuropathic feet. shoe is a bit large for a comfortable fit, will have to wear some thicker socks over my compression socks.

Like most other reviews said, these run small. I normally wear an 8 and I tried an 8.5 and it was too small. I ordered a 9 somewhere else since they weren't available here and they fit better. I have narrow, low volume feet, so a 9 may be a bit roomy for me, but I'm able to tighten them up (a bit too much at first!). They're a somewhat stiff, but I'm slowly breaking them in and feel they'll give me a lot of support.

So far this has been a good training shoe - however, I have to admit that it's taken some getting used to because it is much stiffer and less sensitive than the Five Ten Dragon or Blackwing; on a positive note, it's still quite aggressive and hopefully more durable than those shoes. As far as sizing, I actually have to disagree with the earlier review - I think your street size is the way to go with this shoe. They may be tight at first, but the shoe is made of unlined leather, so it will eventually stretch almost a full size. As a women's-specific model, however, it does run narrower than many other climbing shoes I've tried - something I really like, as the heel feels super snug and secure - for heel-hook intensive boulders and routes I now prefer it to my Dragons.

SPD clip fits perfect. Walking around you can hardly tell there is a clip attached. Easy to navigate rocky terrain. It does apply some pressure on my smallest toe while riding.

I ordered my usual street shoe size. These were a full size to maybe a size and a half smaller than anything that would fit on my foot. Size up. Way up.

I bought these shoes for a climbing/base jumping trip to Switzerland and Italy. They are by far the best shoe on the market for wet/slippery rock. I had a pair of north face Shoes with vibram soles and they slipped all over the place. They do run about a half size smaller than what I normally wear. Very comfortable shoes even after hiking for hours. The 2013 model is not very waterproof. But they redesigned them in 2014 with that in mind. Great shoes!

Bought these for my wife in her street shoe size. After trying them on she didn't think she could wear them any smaller. She felt they were really uncomfortable until they broke in a little, but the performance of the shoe is quite good.

I have been climbing in these shoes for about a month now, some T-meadows trad, some sport clipping on granite, a little plastic pulling, and one very productive humid rainy day bouldering. They do a great job saddling that compromise between edging power and sensitivity/smearing ability. They are at their best on small edges, power face climbing, and cracks, but that Stealth C4 rubber has them sticking quite nicely up those pucker-inducing runout T-meadows friction pitches. I wear a 10.5-11 in a street shoe and got these in a 10. Caution if, like me, you have a LaSportiva "euro" narrow foot: the toe box is generously wide on these shoes. I already have the toe laces cranked down as far as they will go and hoping the front of the shoe won't stretch any more. I wish I could make the fronts a little narrower. My only complaint is that the lateral lip of the shoe under the lateral ankle bone "bites" a bit on the right side when I first put them on. After they warm up the pinching goes away.

These are amazing kids sneakers! My 6 year old uses them on and off his bike. No break in period and they are durable! I can see these lasting a long time. Wish other sneakers were made this well.

These are my third pair of Five Tens. I love their shoes. I had the high top carvers first (poor sole construction but felt great). I then bought the White Tigers and these are awesome, no complaints. The black elements are quite narrow and made my feet fall asleep several times on longer rides. I hope the next pair I buy are just as wide like my first two pair. All three pairs are the same size but I can tell a difference in the elements.

Great shoe, keeps my feet dry. Feels slightly too narrow (or I need to break them in more), and the laces keep getting caught in the velcro.
