Arrowheads are gently downturned synthetic shoes. Because of their conservative downturn, Arrowheads can be used advantageously on a variety of rock angles. With Stealth® Onyxx™ outsoles, Arrowheads exhibit extreme durability and provide an exceptionally stiff platform for edging.

Outdoor Gear Lab Gear Review rating 4.1/5

These shoes are ideal for standing on small footholds that require precise toe placements. Unleash them on your projects with tiny edges, knobs and pockets. This is a great shoe for extremely thin vertical rock to about 45 degree and steeper sport climbs and boulder problems. They are a bit too expensive for average gym climbing and a bit too specialized with a tight fitting toe for general all day face routes or trad climbs.

In summary for the Arrowhead, I think it's a solid all round performer, which fits neatly into the niche between the and Anasazi line and the Dragon and Team shoes. I'd recommend you try them if you have a narrower foot or are looking for something which will adapt pretty well to whatever terrain you can throw at it.

As one tester put it, this shoe “crushes every angle of rock.” The Arrowhead is a moderately downturned version of the best-selling Anasazi VCS—stiff enough for extreme edging, yet sensitive enough to grab holds on steeper rock. The tensioned heel is rubber-coated, and a high rand of Stealth Mystique rubber surrounds the shoe, offering superior hooking and scumming. The arch is higher than in previous Anasazi models, which eliminates bagginess underfoot. Two hook-and-loop closures secure its vacuum fit. Testers called the 3.5mm Stealth Onyxx rubber on the sole “durable and very sticky.” The synthetic upper, lined with a brushed microfiber, will limit stretch and dry quickly, while a split, padded tongue adds a final touch of comfort. We climbed extensively in more than a dozen new shoes for this issue’s reviews, and the Arrowhead hit the bull’s eye.
