How I choose the correct size?

All climbing shoe models fit differently. We put together our 'shoeculator' to help you find the right size in a new model, compared to your old climbing shoes or street shoes.

Choose from the options below to find your size in the Five-Ten Five Ten Anasazi VCS
Climbing Shoe
or
Street Shoe

This sizing advice is based on two pairs of brand new shoes. Leather shoes tend to stretch more than synthetic shoes. When switching from synthetic to leather you may want to select a smaller size.

Customer questions

Q

Hello, I tried these on in a store the other day and my only too options were a 43 and a 44.5 Now the 43 was good everywhere except the main toe, there was too much pressure from the point at the big toe. The 44.5 had more gaps between above the foot and around the toes. My question would be would the half size increase from 43 to 43.5 give me slightly more length or would it only give width. And size wise how is the 44 different to the 43.5?

Thanks,

A

In terms of length, half a size is approximately 5mm. There should be very little variation in width between these sizes. If you think 5mm extra length will ease the pressure on your toe I would suggest trying the 43.5.

I bought these shoes thinking that with all the glowing review they get, they would be both relatively comfortable and capable. Unfortunately, I'm not impressed with either comfort or performance. To an extent, comfort will differ for everybody based on foot shape, but I found these a bit too narrow and pointy, despite my feet being pretty average width. Also, while the velco closure is fast and secure, it doesn't offer much scope for adjusting the fit, unlike most laced shoes or even some other velcro shoes.

In terms of performance, the rubber is obviously sticky, but I find it very hard to be precise, or to trust them. This is particularly an issue on very small holds, especially when trying to foot swap. While generally the shoes do hold on, it feels like I'm relying on blind faith that they will do so, rather than being able to feel the limits of the shoe, or to place the shoe precisely enough to make the most out of tiny holds and features.

These shoes are good enough that I'll keep wearing them until they wear out, but will be replacing with something different when that happens.

Pros:
- well made shoe
- not too aggressive, great comfort for longer sessions / days / pitches
- good edging capability due to harder rubber
- still decent at smearing, but not as good as softer rubber competitors
- durable, no significant signs of wear / tears from outdoor climbing on limestone and granit for a few days, where I would expect to see marks on softer rubber shoes
- excellent delivery and customer service from BF

Cons:
- there are cheaper models out there
- buckles can get painful when crack-climbing
- heel could be better protected / have a closer fit for hooking. It will still do the trick, but there are better models for more acrobatic hooks (e.g. Scarpa Vapour V, Evolv Shaman).

I bought these for a comfortable alternative to my downturned shoes; they were NOT more comfortable. My regular shoe is a 4.5 La Sportiva Python, which fits me like a glove.
I have finally broken the Anasazis in now (by taking a few baths in them) and they're alright but for ages they were agonisingly tight - even so, the heel is not a great fit (this is something that many people have told me they find about this shoe).
They have a very stiff sole (which is not my preference) and the heel doesn't fit many people very well. - these are probably the most important factors you need to consider. I cannot guarantee they will be as sore and tight as for you.
