great shoe. first time in a lace up in about 5 years, these shoes are hands down the best I've had for hard routes where footwork is key. Edging machines, they stick to anything. EH-NEE-THANG. Other reviews mention a baggy heel, I don't have tis problem, but have yet to set a serious heel hook with them. They don't stretch much, and they size a bit different than other 5.10 models, so try a couple sizes before you commit.

It's a kick-ass shoe design that's been around for a long time, and 5.10's got the best rubber in the market. The only thing is that the manufacturing quality BLOWS when compared to La Sportiva, Boreal, or Triop (the other companies from who I have shoes: Katana, Ace and Twist). The 5.10 shoe is definitely the worst-made. One week out of the box, and the heel cup is tearing off from the shoe. This seems to be a result from using the inner-pull tab. BUT, if you can't use them then what are they there for?!?
I sized the shoe down a full street shoe size and find that although I don't leave them on for the whole route on anything bigger than two-pitches, comfort is not a problem. The heel cups fits with my long and narrow foot, and the last is perfect for someone with a foot shaped like mine. The heel is baggy though.near the bottom, although this has not been a problem for heel hooking yet.
Climbing in these shoes kicks ass. You can really stand on almost anything. Smearing is possible as well, and the rubber is the best.
Next time though, I'm keeping my money for the La Sportiva Miuras (and an eventual resole with 5.10 rubber)

I like this shoe for its universality and for its edging power. I also have a LaSportiva Testarossa, which is softer, but more specific.
The Anasazi, if you size 'em thight, is a stiff shoe. I bought mine the same size like my street shoes, use it with ultra-thin running-socks and have a close fit, but no "hot-spots". And I don't have the skunk smell otherwise notoric for this upper material.
I use 'em for edging, ramming it into cracks and even for smearing. Quality has been improved.
Stealth rubber is still the stickiest on the world, more than Vibram.
