Manufacturer's Description refers to the men's version
A performance shoe that fits well right out of the box, the Vapor V offers a moderately downturned, fairly soft shoe with an asymmetric last for performance.
A sensitive design that’s also great for edging, the Vapor V is built with innovative Active Rand Technology. The uppers are constructed using a combination of suede and synthetic lorica, which offers stretch without stretching out.
The Vapor V has 4mm Vibram Grip 2 rubber soles and Velcro enclosures.

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.
