I wear an 8.5 in my Anasazi VCS and a 9 in my old leather Asym's. Does anyone know how they might size the 5.10 Stonelands? It sounds like they have a leather upper so they would stretch. My Anasazi's are broken in now and perfect with an 8.5 but the synthetic upper shouldnt stretch. Im trying to decide whether i should go for an 8 or 8.5 in the stonelands vcs?

Any thoughts?

hey preston, i work for 5.10 and have climbed in all the shoes you mention. i have climbed in all the new stonelands, and the VCS is lined leather, so expect minimal stretch. i personally find they fit really well at street shoe size for all around climbing. i find that the same size in stonelands as anasazi is a slightly tighter fit. the whole last is different than any other five ten shoes. i think when you try them on in a shop you will see what i mean.

the toe box has more room for your outside toes, with less point or turn in at the big toe...very comfy yet still a solid position for edging, and more room for the outside toes to lie flat...great for jamming cracks.

i have climbed in these styles in both street shoe size and a half size down, and prefer the fit at street shoe size. for really tight fitting super technical shoes i still prefer anasazi. its nice to not have to deal with stretch and the subsequent break-in period that lined upper provide. if you do choose to fit these very tight, the lining will resist stretching, but over time they will give some.

hope this helps, happy sending!
