Five Ten Anasazi Lace's profile

Downturn. The Anasazi Lace from 5.10 is a moderately downturned rock climbing shoe. In it, the toes curl into a tiptoe position, allowing owners to mount on edge-type features with relative ease. Climbing kicks with this type of downward camber provide enough comfort on multi-pitch ascents.

Applications. Sport and trad are two of the climbing types for which the Five Ten Anasazi Lace is designed. It is an all-rounder adequately equipped for scaling cracks, whether indoors or outdoors.


The Five Ten Anasazi Lace is a low-top rock climbing shoe built specifically for men. Its unlined synthetic upper promises no stretch. As it is crafted around an asymmetric last, its confines will force the foot to bend inwards, especially the forefoot. Wearers can get a locked-in fit in it using the shoe’s lace-up closure.
