The Vapor V opens 5.15 performance to the masses, with an asymmetric and slightly downturned fit and Bi-Tension randing. Rather than jam toes forward, the rand connects beneath the toes and pulls backwards to the heel structure, the opposite of slingshot randing. The result? Power and precision, married to a stretch-gusseted airmesh tongue for comfort and Vibram® XS Edge rubber. Sticky, energized, comfortable shoes for anything steep, indoors or out.

General fitting rules depend on the product's intended use... follow the appropriate guidelines below for best results.
Rock climbing shoes
- From your measured size, you'll want to consider downsizing .5 - 2 full sizes. The flatter the shoe, the closer to your measured size; the more downturned/aggressive the shoe, the more you'll want to downsize.
- The best fit is comparative between sizes and only you will be able to judge that, though an experience climber could offer good insights to your fit.
- If it feels painful, it may break in... or it may not.
- Pain sucks as a rule of thumb though and makes climbing miserable.
- Only you can judge what's 'acceptable' discomfort.
- Good fitting rock shoes shouldn't necessarily be 'comfortable' by walking/running shoe standards.
- Look for looseness/bagginess in the toes and heel. Bagginess can mean 'slop' when climbing with feet perspiring, etc.
- Toes should completely fill the toebox.
- Heel should feel solid; like they won't pull off if heel hooking.
- Any foot movement in new shoes will mean sloppy fit when broken in.
