Scarpa Instinct VS-R Limited Edition

The Scarpa Instinct VS-R Limited Edition offers all the same specs and features as the original, but in a shiny new colour! There will be limited stock available of this new version, so if you already know and love these shoes, then why not grab yourself a new pair whilst stocks last? And you'll be sure to stand out at your local climbing wall. The Instinct VS-R is a softer version of the classic Instinct shoe. Great for a range of sport climbing and bouldering, but really dialled down for those who climb mostly on plastic, those with a lighter frame, or for those looking to broaden their shoe collection.
