SCARPA Vapor V Climbing Shoes - Men's

Size Chart

Find Your Foothold

You finally got on the route you've been dreaming of trying for years only to find that it requires the ability to hold an edge, smear on glassy feet, and everything in between. Lucky for you the SCARPA Vapor V Climbing Shoe was built for just such an occasion. The Bi-Tension active rand pulls power away from your toes directly, offering top-notch performance with less tension, less rubber, and ultimately giving you a more sensitive shoe. This sensitivity combined and flexible design and a stiff Vibram XS Edge rubber is the perfect blend that can accommodate any foothold that comes your way. A padded air mesh tongue keeps you from feeling it when you're shoes have been on all day long while the patch in M70 rubber on the toe offers the perfect amount of hold for tricky bicycles and toe hooks. For routes with only jugs for feet, your worn out, flat-footed shoes will do just fine, for everything else there's the Vapor V.
