Scarpa Vapor Lace Climbing Shoe
The Scarpa Vapor Lace is the golden child of the Vapor family. With a stiffer midsole and more customisable laced closure system, the Vapor Lace maintains the highly accredited "performance-with-comfort" fit of its older sibling but with a more supportive and stable design that will suit multipitch climbers and edging intensive climbing. The Vapor Lace is the perfect gateway into the world of high-performance shoes for the beginner, or for the intermediate seeking all-day comfort in a supportive and technical climbing shoe.
To achieve a high level of comfort, the Scarpa features three key characteristics. The Bi-Tension randing system does the opposite of a standard slingshot rand: rather than painfully jam the toes forward, the rand, which connects the rubber beneath the toes to the heel, decreases the tension in the toe box, providing the same amount of precision but with reduced discomfort. The upper is suede leather with a luxuriously soft feel, and the tongue is perforated to enhance breathability. This lined suede leather will stretch up to half a size. If you'd prefer a softer version that's better for bouldering and gym climbing, try the velcro version, the Vapor V.

Vibram XS Edge™
Rubber compound built for maximum performance on micro holds and extreme edging. This formula uses an improved plastic deformation resistance that ensures the utmost stability, rigidity, and support on footholds in hot or cold weather, as well as generally increasing durability.
A rand that that pulls power from the toes to achieve performance with less tension and less painful toe cramming. The Bi-Tension Rand also reduces the amount of rubber needed under the toes, which means a lower weight and a higher sensitivity.
