The Blanco is the most aggressive shoe in the Anasazi line. For 2017, we have updated the midsole to thermoplastic so the Blanco retains its famously stiff platform even longer. The eye stay also has been updated to a welded construction to make the shoe even sleeker. The heel rand has the most tension out of any Anasazi and the outsole is Stealth® C4™ making this one of the most powerful edging shoes in the world.

The Five Ten Anasazi Blanco also performed well on a lot of our boulder projects that required precise footwork on terrible holds. We did some testing on some slabby sport routes and the Blanco performed pretty well, but a shoe with a softer sole would likely do better at maximizing the grip area on smears. Although the heel is quite baggy because of the high tension rand we didn’t have any problems with it on heel hooks and sometimes the extra room seemed to help smear a bit on slopey holds.
