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.

<3 these shoes!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've been climbing in Miuras LU for the past few years and decided to change things up recently. After reading the reviews I ordered these in full size larger than Miuras and they fit like a glove! Sticky rubber, moderate curve + overall comfort, these shoes will take you on an adventure. For reference, my running shoes are 7.5/38, my Miura's were 37.5, Vapors are 38.5.

Great moderate shoe, with one downside

I've put it through the wringer

I got these shoes after reading some of the reviews here and I do love them. They are one of the best fitting shoes I?ve found for my semi wide asymmetrical foot. Be aware they do run a bit smaller than other models. In the instincts I am around a 41/41.5 and in these I am a 42. If you have instincts, I?d order these at least a half size larger than those. As others have mentioned, I?d consider these a moderate/flat shoe. They pretty much immediately lose their downturn after the first time you climb in them. I don?t mind that because I actually prefer flatter shoes, and it makes them pretty good for slab. However the one downside to this is for whatever reason, the stiffness doesn?t really seem to last in the soles. After just a couple months there is barely any support in the sole. Recently on a relatively short Multipitch with hanging belays my feet were absolutely killing me after just a couple pitches. That being said, they are still a great allrounder, but if you?re wanting these for longer climbs I?d look elsewhere. They edge really well, and the xs edge rubber provides a nice balance of stickiness and durability. I mainly use these on granite climbs ranging from slab to vertical, and for that purpose they are wonderful. I like them enough and they fit my foot perfectly that I?ve bought a second pair but I?m considering exploring other options now just because of the sole stiffness durability.

Way Too Small

Size Bought:
5' 7"

I normally wear size 39.5 in La Sportivas. Bought the Scarpa Vapors in size 40. They are more like size 38 in La Sportivas. Here is a comparison pic with my TC Pros (39.5). Can't give you a review on its performance since I can't even get into them.

Decent but not Amazing

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

These shoes are decent but not my favorite. Theyre suitable for easy trad which is mostly what I bought them for, but on climbs with small foot placements I found that the rubber under my big toe was folding, though my feet might just not have the right shape for these. (Bought online without trying on) I wear a 42.5 La Sportiva and got these in 45 and they have a similar tightness. Also, the slight downturn was completely gone after 1 use :(
