The new Scarpa Vapour (lace up) might seem like the same shoe as the new Scarpa Vapour V (velcro) with a different fastening - in fact they are very different models. True, both are all-round high performance rock shoes offering precision, sensitivity and power, and an asymmetric, moderately down turned shape to offer great instant comfort. The difference is in the rubber.
