Scarpa Vapor Lace Rock Shoes - Men's
These acclaimed lace-ups are a good choice for climbers looking to improve their footwork and tackle more challenging routes or multi-pitch outings. The single piece upper eliminates seams that can cause hot spots on long days. A full length outsole offers a stiff platform that supports your foot through a range of movement, and proven Vibram® XS Edge rubber gives you purchase on gritty or polished stone.
- Uppers use a single-piece synthetic leather with minimal seams
- Slightly asymmetric, curved shape for precise foot placement.
- Mid stiff platforms.
- Sole is 3.5mm 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.
A highly tensioned shoe tends to push your foot forward to create a powerful curve in your toes.
