Vapor V Climbing Shoe

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.

  • Climbing shoe designed for technical routes and overhung boulders
  • Moderate downturn balances precision with comfort
  • Microsuede upper stretches to conform to your footshape
  • Vibram XS Edge rubber sole made for microscopic edges
  • Item #SCR008R

At first i thought I had gotten the wrong size as they seemed just too tight! But after a few gym sessions in, they really fit like a glove and am not complaining at all! Super comfortable after the break in period and there is no air gap at all. The toe box and heel cup are snug like a glove. Just the right amount of downturn for most routes. They have good sensitivity and smear very well as they are soft. Not the best for bouldering but they will be able to work!

I've had several models of Scarpa and other brands. These broke in quickly; I wore them for about 15 minutes a few days before climbing. At the climbing gym, we climbed for about three hours. These shoes gave me a noticeably good footing on even the tiniest foot chips. Presently, I have serious climber's elbow in my right arm and mild climber's elbow in my left but nearly sent a 5.12a on my first attempt and I credit that to the difference these shoes made. That, and I used the Theraband Flexbar between each climb. But the shoes were just amazing. After three hours slab bouldering, steep wall bouldering, roofing, and toproping, I removed the shoes and had no blisters or other issues. These are worth every penny!
