Five Ten Anasazi Lace Up Rock Shoe
Good shoe, good fit and works well
This is my third pair of these 5.10 Anasazi. The shoes have all fitted well, and performed well at the grades I climb (typically VS to E1). I've used these indoors and outdoors on many types of rock and always been happy to rely on the stickiness of the rubber up until the point they wear out and I have to buy a new pair (typically every 12 months or so with use at least once a week).

My third pair of these. Keep on making them!
I've had three pairs of these now and two pairs of the Velcro version. For me the lace is excellent for comfort, overall fit and precision, giving excellent performance on a variety of rock. They are great for bouldering or all day use
You don't need to buy a smaller fit than your normal shoe size either and that's a big bonus when you're out all day.

Precise & Grippy Climbing Shoe
Had just the one session in these shoes but these feel great. The toe is very precise & my confidence on small toes holds has increased. The heel too is very "snug." Bought size 9.5 (normally 8.5) but these are still very tight & feel probably another size up if you are going to be spending long days multi-pitching. Rubber is grippy. Great shoes.

Comfortable and great fitting shoe
This is a great shoe, Comfortable enough to wear for long periods while still giving great performance. The most comfortable shoe I have ever had. I feel confident climbing with this shoe and even though it is snug it moulds to my feet so well (I have wide feet and bunions and find a lot of shoes very painful). If you are looking for a good all round shoe then this would be a great choice.

Brilliant. These shoes are my first verdes, but I had three pairs of pinks. The verde has a considerably better fit and are just brilliant. The oynx is stiff enough for confident edging and sticky enough for all the smeering any grit route could throw at them. The only thing that lets these shoes down is my abilities!! These shoes can only help though :-)

a nice snug fitting shoe that puts the toes in the right place
A very well made shoe, I normally go for Italian made shoes such as the la sportiva, I went into snow and rock looking for a more aggressive shoe and to get it fitted properly (i bought the last pair online)
these are comfy enough to be able to keep on wearing for a two hour session but snug and aggressive enough to allow for complete performance. Very impressed, it has allowed me to climb routes i would have otherwise struggled with, getting my toes into the right places, feeling very secure standing there.
I would recommend trying any climbing shoes on in store to get a proper feel for them, all shoes are different and work well for different people but these worked great for me.
Only con so far is the rubber is taking a while to warm up,worn them for two session bouldering indoors, so can feel a bit rigid in bending which is good for what i mostly do, tiny screw ons (6b+) but not so great for smearing and putting foot against the wall, feel a bit rigid in that respect, otherwise added a lot to my climbing being able to fit toes into the gaps when it matters.

Good All Round Technical Shoe.
I first got these shoes around the end of 2011 and have been using them since climbing a few times a week. These were my first pair of "performance shoes" after purchasing a pair of 5.10 Rogues back in 2009. I chose these as they seemed versatile and popular, also the laces allowed a better fit than the velcro version. Wearing a 9.5 (or sometimes 10) in street shoes, I went for an 8 1/2 for these. Looking back that was probably too small and initially I could only climb for 30 minutes before my feet were overcome with pain.
However now I've gotten used to them and the fit is beneficial in terms of more technical sport routes and for bouldering. The heel cup is good but doesn't fit my foot well. The rubber is excellent as is the slightly down turned last.

Great all-round rock shoe
The best all-round shoe I've used at the more technical end of the market, it works well on all sorts of rock types and climbs: slabs, small edges, overhangs.
Comfy once it's worn it, and mine have lasted longer than any other shoe I've used.
