nice..I been climbing multi pitch friction for over 10 years, but started top roping Vertical last year...I went from 5.4 to 5.7s(one 5.9, but had lots of trouble! I could seem to step up to harder route with non-vertical shoes(5.10 coyotes,size 11 US and Boreal Eqounox size 10.5 US...the coyotes streched and have about half a thumb in extra space in toe/nie in width..and Boreals are tight at pinkie toe) been researching for a Vertical-Trad,Sport,Edging,Multi-Pitch,Sticky and as comfortable as possible??? I have wide feet with left pinkie toe knotted out from being boke...I wear street shoe size 10.5 US and feet are 10.5inches...I just bought a pair of 5.10 anasazi V2's size 10.5 and it took time to cram foot in..Toe hit concrete then bent toe nuckles out,popping out upper, ankle was so tight that had to use both hand to remove shoe, and heel did't drop into heel cup much, probably fir a small golf ball in heel cup with the 5.10 anasazi V2's size 10.5 US...have to send them back! Can anyone Help with Info, for my Situation??? I'm looking for a great all around, good preforming Vertical Shoe, that will let me Step-Up my Vertical Ability and Climb long day/multi pitches in somewhat Comfort...with wider feet at pinkie toe, and size Compair??? I'm thinking Mad Rock Flash or one of Tenaya's Shoe's like the Ra,Amigo or the Tatanka??? Heard the Masia run's Narrow? Thanks for any Help/Info/Time...Best wishes and climbing!!!
