/ Five ten anasazis- Loose heel
Anasazi heels don't fit me at all but the Sportiva Miura & Miura VS fit like a glove, check them out, they're great shoes.
I've just switched form Verdi's to these. http://www.tauntonleisure.com/edelrid-typhoon-climbing-shoe/p8837 Leather uppers so I've gone a size tighter than I normally would and they've taken a few sessions to break in but at least the wont have that Verdi rotting flesh stink. They are performing as well as the Verdi's for stickiness.
I really wanted the 5.10 Blackwings but they just would not fit
In-between Verdi's I tried the Scarpa force, they were the first velcros that fitted my foot shape. They were good and even though I did go back to the Verdi's I still use the force's for route setting and as a back up shoe.
If you want something that's a better heal hooker, I found the Anasazi Arrowheads a better heal fit, but still not ideal. Ended up buying some Scarpa Boostics, with the Scarpa Instincts fitting well also. Naturally this is all relative to my foot shape, so best to try before you buy with climbing shoes.
