The Instinct VSR is a climbing shoe that is suitable for all types of climbing, from indoor and outdoor bouldering to sport climbing and multi-pitch routes. The upper material made of microfiber and leather consists of six cut parts that are sewn together in such a way that they fit perfectly on the foot without causing pressure points. The Bi-Tension system ensures the perfect balance between stability and flexibility in the midfoot area, while the Flexan insert in the midsole supports the foot when standing on small holds. The moderately asymmetrical shape of the shoe, the medium-strong downturn, and the moderate toe box contribute to precise force transmission and precise tip. The Vibram® XS Grip2 rubber sole on the heel and the toe patch in the toe area offer excellent hooking properties, while the supporting Vibram® XS Grip2 sole rubber provides good stability on small holds. The Instinct VSR is a high-performance product for advanced climbers, known for its sensitivity, flexibility, and powerful heel.
The difference to the Instinct VS is primarily in the sole rubber, which is softer in the Instinct VSR and thus offers more flexibility and also more grip, but thereby less support.
