What: SCARPA Vapor V Climbing Shoes
Why I chose it: One noticeable benefit of these shoes was the ability to get creative on the wall and try new things, a direct result of the confidence I gained in the shoes. Even on full overhangs, I didn’t have concerns that my shoes were going to slip off the hold. Because I could relax about my shoes’ performance and concentrate on technique, I found myself sending more problems than I had in previous gym sessions. Mesh fabric in the tongue of the shoe allowed some breathability and the gusseting helped keep the tongue in place while I climbed.
