Vapor V Climbing Shoe

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.

  • Climbing shoe designed for technical routes and overhung boulders
  • Moderate downturn balances precision with comfort
  • Microsuede upper stretches to conform to your footshape
  • Vibram XS Edge rubber sole made for microscopic edges

Not good quality

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I got these shoes expecting top quality shoes, but with in a month and a half they were already breaking down. The rubber is just not durable. When I talked to customer service they said that this was normal. To say the least I'm not thrilled with these shoes.

Dealing with the same issue. I've owned them since October and I'm already contemplating sending them in for a resole. Rubber did not last very long at all. Disappointing cause they're pretty comfortable for what they are.

That can be very normal. Rubber being really sticky and also being really tough/durable are 2 things which are generally at odds. It also depends on how you are using them. I just ran through the 3rd resole on mine in about a month of heavy climbing at a gym we joined. The walls basically have rough sandpaper on them (so you can smear with the cheapest shoes?), and I haven't been precise enough with my footwork. At my old gym they would last at least 6 months, but yea, no sandpaper on the walls.

Painful at first but fits like a glove!

At first i thought I had gotten the wrong size as they seemed just too tight! But after a few gym sessions in, they really fit like a glove and am not complaining at all! Super comfortable after the break in period and there is no air gap at all. The toe box and heel cup are snug like a glove.

Just the right amount of downturn for most routes. They have good sensitivity and smear very well as they are soft. Not the best for bouldering but they will be able to work!

Excellent climbing shoes

I've had several models of Scarpa and other brands. These broke in quickly; I wore them for about 15 minutes a few days before climbing.

At the climbing gym, we climbed for about three hours. These shoes gave me a noticeably good footing on even the tiniest foot chips. Presently, I have serious climber's elbow in my right arm and mild climber's elbow in my left but nearly sent a 5.12a on my first attempt and I credit that to the difference these shoes made. That, and I used the Theraband Flexbar between each climb. But the shoes were just amazing.

After three hours slab bouldering, steep wall bouldering, roofing, and toproping, I removed the shoes and had no blisters or other issues.

These are worth every penny!
