Climb Newcastle News: The Resurrection of the Anasazi Pinks
During the late 90s and the early years of the 21st century, the Anasazi Pinks were THE shoe which all shoes were benchmarked against. Controversially however in 2006 Five Ten phased out the pinks, bringing in first the Verde and then Blanco, 2 shoes taking different themes on their predecessor.
But, what goes around... Verdes and Blancos are out and the pink Anasazi is back. Retaining many of its original characteristics; Stealth rubber, stiffer than... (woah lets keep it clean)... but with new features including a newly constructed heel, a common complaint of the original.
