How would you rate this product?

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 Vibram® XS Edge rubber. Sticky, energized, comfortable shoes for anything steep, indoors or out.

The sizing of Scarpa Vapor V and Vapor Lace are similar. Matt Groom, EpicTV Climbing editor says on Long Term review: "I went for a 8.5 UK size, with my street shoe normally a 9 UK.

Did you mean what's new in the new Scarpa Vapor Lace shoes? The Scarpa Vapor Lace is designed as the sister shoe to the Velcro version, and keeps the ethos of the original, with a few new and unique features. The rubber sole stretches the entire length of the shoe, rather than stopping mid-way like the Velcro model. This makes the shoe much stiffer and improves the way it climbs on small footholds. This stiffness continues with a rubber ‘exoskeleton’ that crisscrosses the out-side of the shoe.... (more)

Hi Camella, I personally climb in the Vapours most of the time and have had no problems with heel hooks so far. Heel hooking usually requires less sensitivity than edging for example, so it is little sacrifice having the extra grip from the ribbed sections of the shoe. Scarpa is not the first shoe manufacturer to utilise this idea however, many of Boreal's shoes for example have a similar, ribbed design on the heel. Hope that helps, Dave
