Vaporize your projects.

Upgrade your sending arsenal with Scarpa Men's Vapor V Climbing Shoe before hopping on your lifelong projects again. This shoe focuses on precise footwork over a variety of footholds, both overhung and vertical. Bi-Tension randing reverses standard slingshot randing in order to connect your toe to your heel, instead of uncomfortably bunching your toes towards the front of the shoe. The result is a more powerful performance, assisting any movement from technical static moves to huge dynamic jumps.

Scarpa made the Vapor V's upper out of stretchy, soft, and strong suede, so expect a bit of stretch after some use. The air mesh gusseted tongue enhances the upper's overall comfort, and it prevents debris from falling in. The Flexan midsole is on the softer side, but the Vibram XS Edge sole keeps the Vapor V in its slightly downturned, asymmetric shape. A slight downturn feels excellent on technical vertical routes as well as overhung boulder problems.

Scarpa Vapor V Climbing Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Height: 5' 9"
    Weight: 165 lbs
    Size Purchased: 41.5

I'm an average climber, leading in the 5.10a and 5.10b realm, as well as V4 boulder. I wanted a shoe that was a bit more aggressive as I started sport climbing and bouldering harder grades. I have used these on multiple trips outdoors including a trip to Smith Rock, and extended gym sessions. These are my first down turned shoes. I have owned some Mythos and Tarrantulas prior to these.

These fit my wider feet well. My feet are not super wide, just a bit wider then normal width feet. So these feet me well. I felt like these are pretty tight on my feet considering I wore 42 Mythos and got these in 41.5. They are not too uncomfortable, but after being on a climb in the hot summer heat at Smith Rock I wanted to rip these off by the time I hit the ground. They have broken in well, but haven't stretched much.

These edge very well, and also helped me stand on pebbles. I feel much more confident on my toes with these when compared to the Mythos. I also feel very good heel hooking with these when bouldering. The rubber is pretty sticky, and smear well.

Overall, I would recommend these for folks like me who are moving up through the moderate grades.
