This is a stiff and supportive, high performance shoe with a similar pointed toe design as the Five Ten Anasazi VCS (Velcro) model. It offers very precise front point edging that translates to great performance in small pockets and micro edges. It is stiff and precise.
However, that awesome edging comes from a stiffness that makes them a little less sensitive than the Five Ten Anasazi VCS. Overall we like the Anasazi VCS a little better and it's cheaper. But if you really want super precise edging, this shoe is hard to beat. Another shoe to compare it against is the La Sportiva Miura VS.
