Scarpa Instinct VS R OUT NOW

For tough sport climbs and committed bouldering moves you need ultimate confidence in your shoe - this is where the design and technology in the Instinct VS-R comes into its own.

Inspired by the request of many of our global athletes, in particular those competing on plastic, the new VSR offers the option of a softer rubber in your quiver of shoes. Same last, rands and characteristics of the legendary Instinct VS, but this version will appeal to plastic masters and those of lighter frame, where the extra feel and sensitivity of the Grip 2 compound will be best suited.

VIBRAM® XS Grip2 represents the natural evolution of VIBRAM® XS Grip, the compound used by many bouldering and difficulty world championship winners in the last 3 years. VIBRAM® XS Grip2 delivers measurably improved grip with adequate firmness for moderate edging, while maintaining consistent performance in all temperatures.
