Scarpa Instinct VS


The Scarpa Instinct VS is the newest shoe to enter Scarpa's lineup. It's the lovechild of the already popular Instinct lace and Instinct slipper, and borrows the best characteristics from each of those models.

The Instinct VS pulls on like a slipper then fastens securely with a single velcro strap. The design utilizes Bi-Tension technology to hold the foot in a downturned position and drive power toward the toe box. The heel cup is secure and the toe is capped in rubber for toe-hooking.

The result is a high-performance shoe for sport climbing or bouldering that excels on everything from steep pockets to technical edges. Check out the detailed video review below by clicking on the image.
