The Scarpa Instinct VS-R is a superbly sensitive, performance climbing shoe, suited to indoor climbing and lightweight climbers who want increased feeling.
Basically a softer and more sensitive version of the VS model, the Scarpa Instinct VS-R differs from the original by way of its Vibram XS Grip2 sole unit, which offers higher levels of friction and sensitivity than the more solid/durable Vibram XS Edge used on the standard Instinct VS. With less focus on edging and more on friction, the Instinct VS-R is better suited to overhanging and steep routes, smearing and anything slippy.
As with the VS, the VS-R is entirely constructed from synthetic fabric allowing it to hold its size and shape well throughout its lifespan and the Velcro strap keeps the heel of the shoe firmly secured to your foot.
Overall, the same last, rands and characteristics of the legendary Instinct VS, but this version will appeal to plastic masters and those of a lighter frame, where the extra feel and sensitivity of the Vibram Grip 2 compound will be best suited.
As with all the modern performance Scarpa's, the Instinct VS provides reliably similar sizing - i.e. if you are a 42 in the Vapour Lace, Instinct Lace/Slipper, Boostic etc. you should be a 42 in this shoe.
