Same power and technicality as Vapor but with dual powerstraps for quick on/off. As with any climbing shoe that's this aggressive, considering purchasing a half size up from normal.
Trying to climb overhanging routes with a pair of stiff edging shoes is a bit like using a hammer on a screw--it just doesn't work very well. If you're ready to step up your game in the bouldering cave, it's time to pull on the Scarpa Women's Vapor V Climbing Shoe. The innovative Bi-tension system reduces pressure on your toes for greater comfort while still providing the sensitivity and aggressive down-turned profile necessary to grab footholds at steep angles. Plus, the hook-and-loop closure allows you to quickly pop the shoes on and off between burns.

The Vapor V is a slightly less technical design that utilizes two more user-friendly and quick Velcro tab closures. Like the standard downturned Vapor, the V utilizes Bi-tension active randing, which focuses power on the toes, rather than cramming your toes painfully forward, giving immediate performance with less tension. These active rands are tensioned in ways in which the shoe stores and releases energy as the foot makes the movements crucial to climbing. Think good edging and confidence small holds and delicate moves
