Critically acclaimed and award winning, the Vapor family is a perfect way to breathe new life into your climbing day. Quite often, improving climbers don't want to stray too far from tried and tested shoes, but increasingly they want to experiment on different types of terrain. SCARPA appreciates the opportunities that alternative versions of shoes with similar basic designs can unlock. The single piece synthetic upper promotes a new concept in comfort, and minimal stitching eliminates "hot spots". The full length outsole and increased stiffness are matched with Vibram® XS Edge rubber to offer the most supportive lace up in the entire climbing collection. The Vapor lace is built on the same last and utilizes the same Active Rand as the Vapor V, complimenting its softer relative extremely well.

Scarpa Climbing Shoe Sizing:
• From your measured size, you'll want to consider downsizing .5 - 2 full sizes. The flatter the shoe, the closer to your measured size; the more downturned/aggressive the shoe, the more you'll want to downsize.
• The best fit is comparative between sizes and only you will be able to judge that, though an experience climber could offer good insights to your fit.
• If it feels painful, it may break in... or it may not.
• Pain sucks as a rule of thumb though and makes climbing miserable.
• Only you can judge what's 'acceptable' discomfort.
• Good fitting rock shoes shouldn't necessarily be 'comfortable' by walking/running shoe standards.
• Look for looseness/bagginess in the toes and heel. Bagginess can mean 'slop' when climbing with feet perspiring, etc.
• Toes should completely fill the toebox.
• Heel should feel solid; like they won't pull off if heel hooking.
• Any foot movement in new shoes will mean sloppy fit when broken in.
