Slippers are like buses, none come out for ages then two come out at once - two very different ones too.

The Furia S and the Instinct SR couldn't be more different in spec if they tried, with the former as soft and sensitive as they come and the latter being an edging machine; however, both have all the features you'd expect from a top-end, high-spec, technical boot with plenty of rubber around the toe for toe-hooking and an exquisite heel for all your heel-hooking needs.

To hear more about the Furia S, take a look at what's it's designer Natan Hoette had to say back at the OutDoor trade show last summer:

Furia S

As The evolution of climbing shoes, Soft line gives the climber maximum sensitivity and encourages the natural use of the foot muscles. The clever design of midsoles, active tension systems and SRT technology gives Soft lines shoe users total freedom of foot placement and encourages a faster and more dynamic movement on rock or plastic.

Furia S

Furia S

Ultra soft and sensitive, the Furia S gives the climber a barefoot-like experience with excellent prehensile grabbing ability. The asymmetrical and downturned shape with
a medium-to-high angled toe box provides maximum toe sensitivity.

Furia S Specs

The Multi-panel upper has a seamless big toe panel and offset fourth toe stitch for the best custom moulding fit and comfort and the high stretch gusset allows easy entry while the IPR system helps reduce excess material and increase the overall sensitivity, precision and adaptability of the shoes.

The Wave shape strap closure system, spreads the pressure evenly across the upper from the strap and buckles. It gives a glove-like fit with excellent flexibility for the foot during bouldering or climbing.

Instinct SR

High performance and versatility are the universal characteristics of the Instinct line. Climbers that seek a versatile shoe that performs on all angles as well as varied footholds will appreciate these shoes with their balanced midsoles and active tension systems. Hooking with both the toes and especially the heels are strengths of the Instinct line.
