Advice on a high-performance non-downturned shoe?

Hey gang, I am a relatively new poster here but I've lurked for awhile. I would like advice on a shoe that can smear decently or well, and is not downturned (well, I guess that sort of goes with the smearing). I currently have Vapor Vs which I love, but they are really more geared for bouldering and overhanging sport climbs.

I would like a shoe that's good for slab, and again, a decent or good smearer. Most shoes these days seem to be downturned. I have been looking at Anasazis. Would these be a good direction to go? The Vapor Vs are somewhat sensitive so i was thinking maybe going stiffer, like with what the 5.10 Verdes seem to be. Or maybe the Blancos? My foot is average width and arch.

Really any advice would be greatly appreciated. I want a shoe to complement my Vapor Vs, so I have options. I can shell out money for whatever I get, as I have been saving up and plan to wear them for a long time (with resoles--that's why I want to make sure to get the right shoe). I do not want to go cheap--I want as good a shoe as I can get for my purpose. Oh, and vertical crack climbing is not something I really ever do, so the shoe need not be good at cracks.
