Precise, versatile, and a best seller - the Vapor V opens 5.15 performance to the masses, with an asymmetric and slightly downturned fit and Bi-Tension randing. Rather than jam toes forward, the rand connects beneath the toes and pulls backwards to the heel structure, the opposite of slingshot randing. The result? Power and precision, married to a stretch-gusseted airmesh tongue for comfort and VibramA(R) XS Edge rubber. Sticky, energized, comfortable shoes for anything steep, indoors or out. Specs: a Upper: Suede/Microsuede a Midsole: Flexan a Sole: VibramA(R) XS Edge; 4mm a Last: FR a Weight: 207g; 7.3oz (1/2 pair size 38)
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.
