The Scarpa Instinct VS-R is essentially a softer version of the incredibly popular Instinct VS, it uses the same last and rand as the VS for high levels of sensitivity and accurate foot placements. The VS-R has a semi-aggressive profile will work well at any angle but will still allow you to pull in on holds when on overhanging terrain.
The use of a softer mid-sole and Vibram XS Grip rubber makes for a more all round round performance rather than being a bit more biased towards edging like the Instinct VS and also makes them more sensitive.
A Lorica upper means greater flexibility and durability but it will also hold its shape better than leather and a combination of an elasticated slipper system and a velcro closure holds your foot securely in place.
