Easy to wear

Getting in and out of the Anasazi Pro is relatively easy thanks to the climbing shoe’s two heel pull tabs. Also coming in twos are the straps of its closure system. These straps are built with hook-and-loop fasteners, rendering them quite adjustable.

Five Ten Anasazi Pro vs. Anasazi VCS

When it comes to rock shoe development, Five Ten is one of the footwear companies that project quality consistently. The Anasazi Pro is a testament to that.

There is no need to be torn between the two, however, knowing the things that set them apart will greatly help. The list that follows will discuss such differences.

Weight. In this category, the less encumbering of the two is the Anasazi VCS. Indeed, it is much lighter than the Five Ten Anasazi Pro by about 25 g.

Target audience. The Anasazi Pro climbing shoe is offered in men's and women’s versions. The competition, on the other hand, only comes in men’s.
