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.
