sick as f*ck!
Review by: boylagz, 2009-09-23
Just purchased these around 6 months ago, and they are my go-to shoes for sport and a little of bouldering. For sport climbing, look no further. Fear of stepping on dime-sized footholds are gone, and the fit is perfect. For the size, I wear 9.5-10US men's street, I have these in 8US. Yes they hurt like hell in the break-in period, which is around a good 6 sessions in the gym or outside; and trust me, if you want the best performance out of these machines here, you must size them as tight as you can. Having the lacing system is the best to really make the pair fit like a glove. And as for bouldering, it's very nice, with just one little flaw; not so cool with toe hooks and/or with bicycle foot moves, the synthetic upper is quite slippery especially with polished rock or holds. But aside from that, it's one of the best shoes I have ever tried. The Stealth Onyxx is super sticky, but quite a HARD rubber; great support for edging, a super PLUS at least for me.
*more notes on the sizing.
I wear a:
-39EU in La Sportiva Venom
-39EU in La Sportiva Viper
-40EU in La sportiva Miura
-8.5US in Five Ten Anasazi pinks
-9.5US in Five Ten Dragon lace-ups
-8.5US in Mammut Shogun
-8.5US in Five Ten Jet7
Look no further

Everything about this shoe is brilliant. They fit snug but comfortable straight out of the box and still feel as good 8 months later. Size 10 street shoes,these are 9 1/2. Great consistency in sizing too where so many shoes are different every time you buy a new pair of the same size. Just bought new ones same size and they fit exactly the same.
Great confidence booster wearing these to push the grades on any style of climbing... edging, tiny pockets, overhangs, slabs.

Just bought this shoe recently , bought it a 1 size smaller then my street shoe which is 7.5uk and it fits snugly all my toe's are curled up but comfortable enough , the only complain i have is the heel , theres air pockets at the bottom part of the heel and doesn't really stick while climbing indoor .
Nice but the heel

The forefoot in these are the best I have had in a shoe. The heel is the only real drawback from the performance because I found that it became bulbous at in the very back once it was broken in.
The synthetic uppers are hard to clean (particularly the smell) but regular washing helps keep it at bay.
The break in period is rather long because of the rugged construction but once its dialed, its great for almost everything (minus heel-hooking).

I love this shoe, anasazi have listened to what people have said and made this, its basically the pink minus its niggly problems...like the heels! It fits my foot shape perfectly with no dead space at all,loose laced its comfortable enough to play but really pull it in tight and feel the performance soar!! Flexile enough for easy smearing on barely visible rough bits yet easily stiff enough for the smallest micro edges! These shoes really boost confidence and are an amazing performer. Just size them so they are tight to your foot!!!
