/ Five Ten Anasazi VCS Stretch?
The guy in the shop said that he owns a pair and that they've stretched alot so I took a punt on a half size down from someone on UKC.
Whats everyones experience with stretch in their Anasazis? And should I just have gone for the 9.5 that felt good new from the box??
BUT it takes a while! I think I remember the label on the box suggesting "fully stretched 1/3 size in about 10 routes". In my experience (only 3 pairs), that's more like 10 * 10 50m multipitches!
I was told the same thing about going half a size smaller than what I initially tried on and I would say they have probably stretched about half a size since then and are now much more comfortable.
They should also stretch more the tighter they are as you're putting more pressure on the material if they're tight.
I've put them up for sale on ukc in case they're the perfect size for someone.
I think if I was looking for a super aggressive feel then I'd stick with them until they stretch, but I'm really looking for these to be a more comfortable shoe so I'm gonna up size to a 9.5!
