Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to shoe. The best all-around performance shoe that I've found. The toebox is excellent for those with a wider forefoot, and the heel fits fantastically - no deadspace. For me, it hits the nice compromise between sensitivity and support/power, though some might prefer a softer shoe. When I'm at a steeper area, like Rifle or the Red River Gorge, I reach for the super-soft Furias, and if I know I'm going to be exclusively edging at a place like the New River Gorge, I go for the stiffer Instinct Laces. For everything else, the Instinct VS is king.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Climbing Shoe I Have Owned I had been climbing with an entry-level Scarpa shoe that I really didn't like so I was not sure about whether to stick with the brand. Happy to say the VS is an incredible shoe. The shape and grip of the shoe is so much better than the typical climbing shoe. The edges are so precise and the Vibrum sole has the traction on granite that I was hoping for. This is one of the rare times where buying better equipment actually translated to making me a better climber. I have used the shoes on indoor and outdoor lead climbs as well as indoor and outdoor boulders and they performed equally well on types of climbs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad... Sizing is different on every shoe I bought these to give Scarpa shoes a try... I'm still shopping around for that perfect shoe. Scarpa shoes are hand sewn, so you might get slight differences in each individual shoe... so I'd recommend trying on the shoes before ordering/buying. So far they are holding up well, and i get good traction and feel on the shoes

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good edging shoe and good heel! The best shoe I had for granite bouldering. If you size to small you might wear the shoes above tour toe and rip it at the toe hook area. ,,For comparison. I wear 10.5 street shoes, the first pair of Instinct VS was 41.5 and it ripped at the top. Second pair is 42.5 and lets hope it will be fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazed by this Shoe! I have tried on no less than 20 climbing shoes, and demo'd about 10 tonight. I've been a La Sportiva die hard fan, but these shoes blew my mind. They instantly felt secure, precise, powerful, and very well made. The toe box seems among the most roomy, but also great at directing power. This must be due to the bi-tension system. I also surprisingly like the separated front and rear of the shoe. The toe has great rubber for toe hooking. Heel is VERY secure. Edged great and fit like a glove while being as comfortable as my La Sportiva Katana Laces. I am a size 11 street shoe and the 43.5 was pretty comfortable, but really difficult to get on; I will get a 44 for a tight but more comfortable fit when I buy them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light! Comfy! Easy on and off shoe! Lots of nice features! Well Worth it. I wear 9.5 street shoe and have a slender foot. Sometimes it makes finding the right climbing shoe a trick, I use to use the the La Sportiva Miura's in a size 40. After going through three pairs of the Miua's I wanted to try something different. So I decided to give the Instinct VS's a try. I ended up sizing up for the VS,( to a 41). Once I got that figured out I fell in love! The VS's fit my feet well, the shoes are quick and easy to put on and take off. I love the features, like the rubber covered toe area, how light the are,and looks like the quality is good as well. all in all they are really good shoes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid shoe. Order maybe a half size larger than a solution I wear a 42.5 in solutions, I tried these in a 44 based on recommendations that they run a little larger and that a 42.5 in boosters was a little bit too small. I'm returning the 44's for a pair of 43's, assuming that they'll stretch a tiny bit. ,,,,,,I really like the design, they seem quite sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a secret weapon for the sport climber's arsenal I demo'd these bad boys at the New River Rendezvous earlier this summer, and I couldn't have been more pleased. Maybe Scarpa shoes just click with my foot shape, but these shoes felt snug and comfy right out of the gate. They performed on all the varieties of sport routes the New has to offer. That stiff scarpa edge did as well as expected on more vertical routes, but really stuck out when it started pulling with heels and snagging toe hooks (yep, all that new rubber on top is pretty handy) on the steeper and more gymnastic stuff. The synthetic upper offers the promise of that snug and comfy fit lasting for quite a while, and I've always been a fan of scarpa's rubber durability. Although I identify as a lace-up guy, i think these slippers kick quite a bit of boo-tay.
