Win a Pair of Scarpa Vapour, Friction Labs Chalk, and Organic Chalkbag

The Vapour has undergone a number of changes within the eight years of its existance, but the latest - we would argue - is the best yet.

Women's Vapour V, 108 kb

Men's Vapour V, 132 kb

The Men's version is built around Scarpa's 'FR' last, one of the lowest volume within the range. Featuring a slightly asymmetrical/downturned shape, and a medium to low angle toe box, a balance is struck between smearing and toe power and features Vibram XS Edge 2 rubber. The Women's version features an altered 'FJW' last, which differs in volume, particularly around the heel, and features Vibram XS Grip as opposed to Vibram XS Edge 2 - ideal for the lighter climber.

"A good all-round performance rock shoe" - Alan James, UKC Review
"Brilliantly comfortable, surprisingly able on hard climbing, good rubber on edges, slight loss of sensitivity on tiny smears, long lasting rubber and uppers, really well made, quite wide fitting" - Jack Geldard, UKC Review

The new microfibre upper and the new tongue marry perfectly with the redesigned Velcro straps for an instantly comfortable fit and secure heel hold. A full length Talyn midsole works with the bi-tension rand system to offer the optimum level of support. Vibram Edge rubber ensures precise edging.

  • New heel construction in microfibre reduces weight and dramatically enhances "next to skin" comfort in the Achilles area
  • New heel rand construction provides a more stable and higher friction zone for enhanced performance on more loaded heel hooks
  • Revised toe rand, provides improved comfort and toe hook protection
  • Revised tongue construction is lighter, more breathable and retains its shape and positioning through the additional elastic in the closure
