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. My toes are still crimped at the end but not as much as I usually prefer. I found the heel fit quite surprising as it wasn’t as snug as I was expecting, although this might just be my foot shape."

The upper of The Scarpa Vapor Lace shoes is so called ‘single piece synthetic upper’, which makes the Vapor Lace climbing shoes ridiculously comfortable when you put them on. The single piece upper means there is no uncomfortable stitching on the inside and my foot feels encased and protected by the shoe.

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)

Otaki men shoes have a Vibram XS Edge rubber sole and Otaki womens have Vibram XS Grip. Vibram XS Edge provides maximum resistance to deformation on small edges for the heavier climber and Vibram XS Grip provides for lighter climber maximised stickiness and traction without being too stiff.
