Scarpa Mens Vapour Lace Yellow Description

  • Brand : Scarpa
  • Season : Not Applicable
  • Code : SCA VAPLY
  • Packaged Weight : 0.8KG
  • Asymmetric, down turned, quite stiff - but comfortable! That's the Vapour (or Vapor) Lace, a shoe that's winning rave reviews 

    "The lace-up Vapor is a stiff, down-turned shoe that really performs on steep edging routes. Sized tight, it’s a secret weapon that paws incuts and dimes with equal aplomb. A looser fit yields a good shoe for hand-size and thinner cracks. The Vapor was my go-to shoe for technical granite face climbing and short, steep bouldering where extension is at a premium." Jeff Jackson, Rock and Ice.

    "It was evident even from a cursory glance that the Vapours are well-designed and well-made... I found these shoes to be reasonably wide fitting, and well designed, with no obvious pressure points and nothing too cramped. They have a slight down-turn to them, but far from finding that uncomfortable, I found this really inspired confidence when climbing. The lacing system is better than that of any other lace-up shoe I've tried... I've tested it on limestone crimpers and gritstone slopers, and I thought it was great on both. It's down to the heel I'd say. As painful as it makes the shoes, it means that when your foot is at 90° or more in relation to your lower-leg, there is a load of tension in the shoe, pulling down your toes like claws, meaning that the rubber can be a bit softer than otherwise. So when you point your foot upwards and stand on a sloper, you can still feel what's going on beneath you. Thumbs up!" Stephen Horne, UK Climbing.
    "The Scarpa Vapor may be the answer to the thin crimping routes that haunt your nightmares. This is the shoe that will give you the confidence to stand on the smallest edges imaginable, while reaching up to that next tiny razor. If only your skin was as tough as these shoes… I’ve been using the Vapors for the last couple of months, on everything from local limestone to the sandstone of Red Rocks. As with all of Scarpa’s recent offerings that I’ve sampled, I am truly impressed. This is a company that has fully come into its own, creating some of the best shoes available today, and the Vapor is no exception. With a similar fit to the Muira, these shoes felt right at home on my feet. The suede uppers stretch enough to allow the shoe to conform to your foot, without getting big enough to be sloppy. After they had broken in, the fit was perfect, with no dead spaces anywhere. The kind of shoe you slip on and think it was made just for you." BJ Sbarra, Splitter Choss.
    Soled with Scarpa's Vibram XSEDGE rubber which wears well and has a good balance between durability and stickiness, and featuring Scarpa's 'Slingshot Power Rand', which forces the toes to the front of the shoe but makes the heel a very good fit as well.
    The uppers consist of reinforced artificial suede and Lorica combined to give a comfortable but minimal stretch shoe and the comfort is increased with a padded tongue.
    To get the best out of this shoe for climbing in the E grades they probably need to be worn a size below your shoe size, for sport climbing in hot countries where you don't want to take them off all the time, half a size would do, and for long trad routes, go for your shoe size, not that we feel this shoe is really designed for long trad routes!

    Sizing Information

    To measure your foot length, stand on the floor with your weight on your foot and put a book against your heel and another against your longest toe. Now carefully remove your foot and measure the distance between the books in centimeters. Repeat for the other foot and then use the longest of the two measurements to work out your foot size.

    Shoe/boot conversion sizes vary widely between manufacturers and even from one style to the next from the same manufacturer. The chart below is about as accurate as is possible to compile.
