The Vampir is not imported to the US. Sadly, this shoe is not available in the US and we have limited ability to track where else in the world it's sold (sorry!). When we know more info, we'll post it here.
A slipper climbing shoe in general purpose technique design with Welcro fastening. It is made on a supertop last, on the bases of which the foot force is being concentrated in one spot. A combination of synthetic and natural materials offers the highest possible comfort. For attaining a maximum precision, this Vampir slipper is provided with a special middle sole with a highly sensible ending in the toe part. This makes this shoe highly sensible, unique and dynamic.

Saltic considers last information super top secret so we can’t define the last types further than the initials CT-35. But, if you find a Saltic shoe that fits, any Saltic shoes with the same last initials will fit your foot in a very similar way.

Saltic’s unlined synthetic Vampir goes for edging power over smearing and sensitivity and delivers well on that promise. The shoe sends quite a bit of power to the big toe for frontpointing and features a stable platform along the inside edge. That ability to stand on the inside edge comes in quite handy when your feet are turned out on a thin, vertical face. Keep in mind, however, that you won’t want to subject the shoe to dime edges on less-than-vertical terrain — it’s strictly vertical and beyond for this ride because it’s not sensitive enough for the subtleties of rolling onto those small holds.
The receiving ends on the Vampir’s Velcro straps feature broad patches for fine-tuning the fit. Like the X-Cube, it would have been nice to have more rubber around the heel, though you’re less likely to be aggressively heel hooking on the less-steep terrain for which this shoe is designed.
