    Hi there ,

    Just a quick heads up on a few errors on your Scarpa shoe blog.

    The new Vapor Lace does have the same midsole as the Vapor V , no changes to the 1.1mm Flexan midsole.

    The main difference is the one piece upper , it is stitch less and has heat welded support straps to minimise stretch , the old model used stitched straps creating some ‘hot spots’ for some users.
    It is slightly more stiff than the Vapor V due to the full length midsole.

    Thanks for the great review.
