Product of the month - The toughest boulder problems require good footwear. The Scarpa Instinct VSR is definitely not an all-rounder; it was developed for the rough. Asymmetrical fit, tight fitting and an additional rubber coating for bomb-proof toehooks make the shoe a precise and uncompromising boulder weapon.

The Instinct VSR is not a new model, but rather a further development of the popular Scarpa shoe. So here the wheel was not reinvented, but it was made a little rounder again. Compared to the Instinct, the VSR version has a slightly narrower fit and a softer but more frictional rubber compound (XS Grip2 instead of XS Edge).

A special feature of the shoe is the rubber coating in the toe area, which also guarantees saddle-proof hooks on small structures in the overhang. Of the Instinct VSR from Scarpa is therefore ideal for all those who like bouldering problems of the rougher kind - be it on the rock or in the hall.
