    These shoes look fatastic, I was really excited about encouraging your brand and give it a try but….
    Pink? Women’s shoes so it has to be pink? come on….

    These are the best rock shoes I have ever tried. I was a 5.10 user for years and since Adidas purchased they haven’t been as high quality. And, despite what the last reviewer said, the pink color is just great!

    If you want a shoe that excels on thin and techy face, and you have a low volume foot, the UP Lace LV could be it. It seems to be a cross between the Anasazi Pinks and the blue Quantums, but for a low volume foot. It’s a flat last, so trying to downsize too much will defeat the purpose of the shoe.
    The initial fit is a bit stiff and slightly unwelcoming. A break-in period of 5 days should be expected. Once the leather breaks in, the rubber starts really performing. Tiny edges and smears were no problem at all, and my foot felt supported on sustained climbs. This is my go-to shoe for vertical face dancing at The Fins, Ten Sleep, and other techy limestone in the northern rockies. The toe is pointy enough to stand in small pockets. I’m excited to try them out on thin cracks. There’s enough of a pointy toe combined with support for more sustained cracks, so long as the fit is flatter.
    The “pink” color is obviously an homage to the Five Ten Pinks. I really appreciate this throwback that UP has given it’s fans. Since the pinks were one of the most popular shoes of all time, I don’t see this as a gender specific color reference. If anything, the color encourages my five star rating. I do wish that shoes companies wouldn’t market with gender specific models. Since La Sportiva introduced “women’s” Miuras and Katanas, I’ve always gravitated towards these shoes because they are low volume and have narrower heels. I think marketing the shoe as LV, or whatever the fit is, with neutral colors, is a wise choice. My only complaint is the woman to man sizing scale. I’ve always been peeved about this with US shoe sizing. It’s so confusing. I get it with UP, since it is a US company.
    The price is unbelievable for the quality and performance. This shoe can definitely be resoled, increasing the value of it, and sustainability.
    As for sizing, my thoughts are that they are similar to the blue Quantums. I was wearing 6.5 for my performance fit and 7.0 for my comfier fit in the Quantums. In the UP Lace LV, 8.0 seems to fit like the length of the 6.5 Quantum and 8.5 like the 7.0s. For reference, I’m wearing 9.0 in both Regulus LV and Sirius LV for a performance fit.

    Excellent Quality. Rubber: very very sticky. Stiff as advertised. LV Lace seem an excellent all-arounder flat lasted shoe like the 5.10 gambit. Sizing: At least one size too long for my USW/ 9.5/ EU 41. Volume: Good in front, heels very loose (I have a “AAA” heel). Back half of the shoe could be pulled off w/ a gentle tug…but this is likely due to wrongly large size. Sizing was not consistent (at least one size larger) w/ my 5.10 shoes in 3 models: Anasazi LV; Stonelands; and gambit, all size EU 41. Have to return due to size fail (expensive, since this shipped to Canada). Size problems could be cleared up simply by trying the shoes on first but they are not available in a brick and mortar store my area. Unfortunate. I would like to order the Up RIse zero LV but the size issue (and access issue) is now a puzzle.

    This shoe is EXCELLENT for very difficult crack (trad) climbing for the following reasons: The rubber is super sticky, the shoes are stiff and edge exceptionally well, they are comfortable right out of the box, the synthetic material allows you to downsize them reasonably and they don’t stretch out too much over time, the toe is narrow and can fit into small cracks, and they are pink. Pink is critical to difficult trad. I wear a men’s 5.5 street shoe and I ended up buying these in 37.5 EU size. I wear men’s 8 in the TN Pros. I highly recommend this shoe if you climb basalt (Trout Creek), sandstone (such as Eldorado Springs Canyon or Red Rocks big walls), or granite (Yosemite). Even though I sized them WAY down for me, I can wear them on long days without having to take them off on the wall. If you are looking for just one pair of shoes to bring to the multifaceted crag, bring these. They can do it all.

    Shoes are great, LV is in reference to the thickness or shoe not width as I have thin feet not narrow but thin with a wide for foot and narrow slender dainty heel, rubber like c4 possible a little harder, wouldn’t say they are stiff like Blanco’s more on the medium side of stiff (mid-stiff) what’s nice is there pretty sensitive and can feel what your standing on while still having that support we all love crave, sizing I’m a us mens 9 street shoes got 10 in women’s as these are sized in women’s for a comfort but tight fit could go down a half size for more edging performance fit but glad I got the size I did (for reference have worn 39 and 39.5 in LS pythons, 41 Scarpa instinct vs, 41.5 LS Muira vs, 510 blanco 9.5 and 10, 510 pink 9.5, evolv shaman/ oracle 10, Tenaya mundaka 8 but could go to a 7.5 I believe), the color is dope and a nice homage to 5.10 glory days in no way just a lady’s color. Stay majestic my ppl
