    You aren't messing around anymore.

    You can expect at least one send on your numerous lifelong projects when you upgrade to the Scarpa Women's Vapor V Climbing Shoe.This shoe focuses on precise footwork over a variety of footholds, both overhung and vertical. Bi-Tension randing reverses standard slingshot rands in order to connect your toe to your heel, instead of uncomfortably bunching your toes toward 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. The slight downturn feels excellent on technical vertical routes as well as overhung boulder problems.

    Good shoe, but sloppy heel

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Vapors were my first pair of aggressive climbing shoes. I wear an 8 in street shoes and went with a 40.0. They didn't break in as quickly as I would've liked but they are ok after about 4 months of use both in the gym and for several sport climbing trips. It may just be the shape of my foot, but I found the heel to be really sloppy. Overall, a pretty good shoe, just not for my foot shape.

    Love these shoes !!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These shoes are great for slab and steep walls. Definitely size down a half size and go through the process of breaking them in. Extremely comfortable, especially for a moderate/more aggressive shoe. The suede upper stretches about a half size but is durable. Good for tough boulder problems and long routes! These are definitely my new all-around shoes.

    Fantastic Intermediate Climbing Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had my Scarpa Vapors for a few months now, and they've been a versatile shoe: great at the gym and outdoors, comfortable enough to wear for longer sport routes but aggressive enough for tougher boulder problems. I've found that these shoes have also molded to my feed over time, and I find myself able to trust my footwork more than I have with other shoes in the past.

    I'm usually an 8.5/ 9 in street shoes depending on brand, and after reading reviews I went with a 40.0 in the Vapors. I may size down to a 39.5 for my next pair, but I'd say overall that they fit true to size -- maybe size down a half size.

    This is my second pair of climbing shoes. I had been climbing in the La Sportiva Tarantulace for a while and decided to upgrade to something more aggressive. I have pretty narrow and low volume feet, so it was hard to find anything that fits well, but these did the job. I wear a 7.5/38 in street shoes, a 38 in the Tarantulace, and I got a 38 for these. They were tight and painful at the beginning but after 2 or 3 solid sessions they were molded to my feet. My footwork has since improved so much and I'm so much more confident on routes with tiny footholds! I've been climbing v3-v6 in these.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These shoes are awesome. I have always struggled to find climbing shoes with a perfect fit, but these shoes fit my feet just right. I have pretty flat feet, so I was stoked to find these shoes. I also like the slightly downturned toe, allowing my shoes to be pretty aggressive. These shoes help me crush it in the v4-v6 range. Highly recommend!

    Narrow foot intermediate shoe

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 40.0
    • Height: 5'2"
    • Weight: 115lbs

    Bought these for an intermediate to expert climber with a narrow/ low volume foot. Fit was great right out of the box and a big step up on how aggressive from the Five Ten Ansazi. Super comfort and the slight toe turn down put this climber in particular in the v5-v7 range after spending a good couple months in the v4-v5 range. The toe holds super well and the scarpa rubber is equipped to hit indoor walls as well as outdoor boulders. Super satisfied with Scarpa over the years and these shoes are no different!

    The best shoe for a flat or narrow foot!

    • Fit: True to size

    As title shows, I am VERY flat flooted, and oftentimes when shopping for a climbing shoe, it'll fit from my toe to heel but the amount of give on the top of my foot leaves me falling out of my shoes. Well, this is the first shoe I've ever tried that feels like a climbing shoe should on my feet. They're slightly aggressive in the toe, so overhangs and small feet are much more manageable. I've had these for a year at this point and the toe box is still totally solid! The shoe itself is also just less bulky than other shoes on the market and that's a personal preference of mine. I definitely recommend this shoe for anyone with a narrow or flat foot looking to graduate to a more technical shoe.

    A Narrow Footed Wonder

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 39.5

    After three years of climbing in the wrong shoes, it was about time I found something to cater to my insanely low volume feet! I bought these shoes 3 seasons ago, and have most definitely put them through the wringer. Mostly used for outdoor climbing, but with the winter season here, more and more gym climbing, the shoes have held strong!

    What I love about this shoe is that while it does have a semi aggressive profile, it isn't anything that is going to make your feet scream. It will still hold the wall, and definitely provides enough grip to smear effectively, but your toes won't be numb by the end of your climbs. After the break in period, they fit my feet like a sock, and I'll be purchasing another pair once these blow!

    I was worried about the shoes stretching too much, and potentially maxing out the Velcro straps, but they only stretched enough to form nicely around the shape of my foot! I had previously climbined in the La Sportiva Katanas, but the ankle pocket seemed to leave me too much room and didn't provide the support I was looking for. I was scared to purchase this shoe, as it seemed to have a similar profile, but I have never had an issue!

    I wear a 9 in street shoes and got a 39.5 in these, and while they were tight at first, they fit magically now. (Where as with my sportivas I was sloshing in a 39..) I'd say if you're going to size down, only do it about a half size, and don't expect too much stretch.

    LOVE THEM! Definitely size up!

      Started climbing 4 months ago on La Sportiva expert by any means but I definitely feel my confidence growing since getting these babies. For aggressive shoes, they’re pretty comfy! Going from a flat sole to downturned was something I came to after about a month of climbing when I realized I dont smear so much as flag and really like to use my toes to get that extra bit of reach. For my first pair of aggressive shoes, I’m beyond happy with their performance so far. Have yet to take them out of the gym, but have no worries about their performance outdoors...These babies are STICKY! So far indoors they make minced meat out of tiny .5” chip footholds...truly GOAT WORTHY indeed. I made the wrong decision going with my straight street shoe size. Would definitely size up at least 1 whole size larger than your street shoe. DO NOT EXPECT THESE TO STRETCH. After wearing them about a month with about 6 long gym sessions in them. But I love them so much I’ve just ordered a 2nd pair just in a more bearable size. Keeping the first pair as my “more aggressive” shoe. Street shoe 7.5 and I originally ordered a US 8 (39.5) because I have longer toes & the whole longer second toe...toes are totally scrunched and imobile. Would recommend going a full size up. Going with an 8.5 (40) this time.
