    Performance and comfort in one.

    The Scarpa Men's Vapor Climbing Shoe combines aggressive performance with smooth comfort for boulderers and sport climbers. Its suede and microfiber upper uses minimal stitching to eliminate hot spots, and the padded tongue enhances comfort on long climbs. Scarpa's Bi-Tension randing keeps the Vapor at a moderate downturn, and the Flexan midsole helps the shoe stay stiff for life. Vibram's XS Edge rubber gives this shoe a good grip on granite edges, slippery limestone, and soft sandstone alike.

    Great All-Rounder for Sport

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 44 (US M10.5)

    Having had a lot of success fitting the Scarpa Instinct VS, but looking for a shoe which could smear more capably, and had more support for longer, less overhung climbs, I was interested to give these a shot. The shoe is sized very similarly to the instinct (I wear a 43.5 in the instinct vs for bouldering, and I ordered a 44 in these for all around use), and is definitely more comfortable. As a result, it doesn't have as much of that vacuum like fit that the instinct has, but that's to be expected for a more comfortable shoe. For bouldering it is slightly less capable, but more than makes up for this with its versatility. On slabs, you can get a lot of rubber down on the rock, so friction smears and very marginal feet feel quite solid, but the added stiffness gives a good balance of ability to edge on small feet. On overhangs, the shoe is still downturned enough to give better performance than a flat lasted shoe, making this a very capable shoe for so many different applications. For an even more comfortable fit, a full size up to 44.5 could have probably made this a fantastic multi-pitch all day shoe. Seems like a solid competitor to the Sportiva Katanas, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who tends to fit well in Scarpa shoes (i.e. wide forefoot, lower volume heel), and maybe has trouble getting proper fit from narrower brands like sportiva.

    Comfy climb

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 42

    I liked climbing in these shoes, pretty good edging, fun sport route and bouldering shoe. my main complaint was a narrow toe box (similar to a la sportiva Katana) and not a great heel hold. (shallow heel)

    like a glove

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    These shoots are comfortable enough for multi pitch climbs. they have excellent grip on any surface of rock. I prefer the lace up model because it gives me a truer fit and grip around my whole foot as opposes to the Velcro model.

    Edge on a Dime

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 42

    I'd consider this shoe a high performance agressive all - rounder. Supple sensitive and pretty comfortable for its aggressive downturn, i'm able to jam this shoe in cracks.

    But where it really excels is on dime edges. When you need to stick to that match book edge, these are killer. I've padded my way up slabs, but also have pulled on overhanging boulder problems. Great revamp to an already killer shoe!
