Scarpa Vapor V Rock Shoes - Women's
These aggressive shoes excel at thin foot placements and unaccommodating stances. But they have enough flex to perform moderately well for smearing and jamming. A Bi-tension system pulls power back from toes rather than cramming your foot painfully forward, so get more power with less tension on your foot.
- Uppers are made of suede and Lorica® synthetic leather.
- Velcro® closure.
- Slightly asymmetric, curved shape for precise foot placement.
- Mid-stiff platforms.
- Sole is 4mm Vibram XS Edge™ rubber.
A flat profile suits long routes and cracks. Curved shoes allow precision and good edging. Hooked shoes are down-turned and tensioned, for power to the toe on steep or overhanging routes.
Highly asymmetric shoes allow more precision and focused power. Symmetrical shoes are more comfortable for all-around climbing.
Stiffness is provided by the type of sole and the tensioning system. Softer shoes allow more precision. Supportive shoes prevent fatigue.
