Hey Ti

I bought my Mocs in Size 11.5 when I'm normally a 13 in Five ten. Your feet are way smaller so there won't be as much leather to stretch in them, and the shoe will feel stiffer for you. Don't compare with the Anasazis - they're lined synthetic; I'm surprised you got half a size stretch out of them.

My Mocs are still "toe down", but not painful at all and smear really well. The advice I was given was to note the smallest size you can possibly fit on your foot and go up half a size. I prefer my Venoms for almost everything but the mocs are my comfort climbing shoe and smear better. Wear them at the gym and sometimes for multipitch unless there's crack climbing involved. Hope that helps.

Wendy, blown away you wore them up Angels. Respect due! Last time I wore mocs in a crack I had my belayer throw my approach shoes to me half way up to finsih the climb, I was holding back tears of pain.

cheers Kyle
