Comfort and performance

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

The Vapor V?s are my go to comfort shoe from Scarpa. They fill a spot in my mind similar to the Moccasym, but the Vapors have a more adjustable fit due to the Velcro. Additionally, the Vapors have a very slight downturn and asymmetric shape which allows for greater precision than most session shoes. I can do the majority of my projects in these only to run up the hill to jump on something else without taking them off. Additionally, these are the shoes that I choose for endurance laps in the gym. They take a phenomenal beating before needing to be replaced or resoled.

I just bought my second pair of these that i use outside only and while my first pair gets resoled. These shoes are amazing! The toe box gives me great edging and for me they are super comfortable. The heel which I have heard takes awhile to break in fit me perfect and i don't have that awkward air in my heel area. They're a great shoe and will continue to use them and get them resoled for a long long time. I wear a street shoe in 13, but bought them in a 12 and they stretched out well in my first pair. My second pair is also a 12, but fit a little bit bigger. You could easily got down a full size to a size and a half.

Is there a noticeable difference in stiffness and/or sensitivity between the XS Edge version and the previous XS Grip2 version?

My go to sport climbing shoe!

I bought these shoes with the intention of getting a more aggressive shoe that wont be uncomfortable to wear after a few climbs. In comparison to other shoes these are moderately aggressive, but I like it this way. I have now climbed on them extensively this past summer, for a few trips this winter, and they are perfect! They provide just enough of a toe curl to feel confident with your footing when climbing overhung routes. In addition, the heel cup on the shoes is comfortable enough to encourage heel hooks. Sure its nice to take them off after several routes, but that's what makes it a great sport climbing shoe. Plus its nice to go bare foot in the down time!

great sport climb shoes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These were my first shoes i ever climbed with and were given to me because my friend was getting new shoes. When these shoes were given to me they were so close to having the toe blowing out and i still loved them. once the toe blew out i wanted to get a brand new pair to really see how good they were. Since they were my first pair of course i went and got way to big of a size but they still were great shoes for sport climbing. when i bouldered in them even when they were to big they were great. when on overhanging routes they are okay but i think they are perfect all around shoes but a better shoe for sport climbs. only one thing i did not like with the shoes is that when you notice the toe going out it blows out pretty fast.

Great Moderately Aggressive Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

The break in was a little tough but now that are perfect. The stretch in the fabric is minimal. I sized down a half size from the lower of the two recommended sizes for my size.

I am a US 8.5 and I went with a 39.5.

The only gripe about this show is that the material on the top of my toes is slowly coming undone. Not quite a full tear yet but will be in the near future.

does that mean the rubber doesn't extend over the toe knuckles?

Moderately Aggressive

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had a couple pairs of these in the last few years and have always been happy with them. They are not the most aggressive velcros that I have worn but they definitely have a good downturned toe. There is a bit of extra volume in the heel but its really around the sides. The back of the heel and up the Achilles has good pressure and I have been able to heel hook with them better than most other shoes I've tried. I climbed 5.10 Galileo?s for a while but always had issues with my heel slipping.

These seem to stretch a bit more than some other similar shoes as well. I ordered and exchanged for a smaller size twice with backcountry before finding a size I wanted to stick with, but I would probably go down .5 size more next time.

The photo below shows them after about 6 months of use. They've held up well but have no downturn in the toe anymore.

Great Shoes

Great shoes! They are super comfy, break in quick, and perform well. I mainly boulder and these are my go to shoes. I should have sized down a half size though. My two other pairs of scarpas fit slightly tighter in the same size. Like other people have said there is a slight bit of dead space in the heals but they have never slipped off while heal hooking. Would recommend.

Great shoe

I've owned both XS grip2 and the XS edge. I feel the edges wear better and offer performance on solid pin point hold but don't smear and flag as well as their stickier counterpart. But I feel the construction is better and the sued upper is a little more durable.

Either way love em.

Note: if you're having problem with heel cup being to spacious down size a little more till they are hurt to the point of foot binding. Then wear the crap out of them and in a week or two they will fit like an uncomfortable tight dream shoe.

The edge rubber is stiffer and less responsive. But the grip wears out so fast if the walls at your gym, or the surface your climbing has any ruff texture they'll wear down faster than you will believe. It's a give and take.
