Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new go to These are my new go to climbing shoes. A little stiff right out of the box, which is to be expected. But by day 3 they felt broken in and ready to send. I sized them from 42 street to 40.5 climbing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Balance I recently decided to try these out in lieu of my use of Solutions for gym climbing and bouldering. Really love these shoes. They don't feel clunky and bulbous and leave my foot feeling really free and light. Great use of rubber for toe hooks as well on cave boulders and super appropriate for the lead wall. Great balance between aggression and precision. The heel fits my medium width feet as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shoes I have always been curious about the Instinct VSR's and now have had these for a few weeks. Glad to say that I have already sent multiple projects with them! Really awesome shoes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good all around shoe I bought these shoes a few weeks ago specifically for sport climbing, but they’re pretty good for bouldering as well. Note that the VSR is different from the VS in terms of its softness. The VSR is a softer shoe and thus allows for more sensitivity. In terms of shoe sizing, I downsized 1 full size from my street shoe size for this shoe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful shoe Been using the shoe for last month and it delivers on heel and toe hooks on in-door bouldering problems. The shoe's downturn so far holds for ~150 lb person despite the grip rubber and inspires confidence on overlangs and slabs alike. Break-in period is a couple sessions if it's your first downturn shoes; toebox is wide and tall but for my feet, I wished it was a tad taller. Heel is slightly roomy on the left foot (normal shoe size is 10 USA, VSR size 43.5) but good fit on right foot (slightly larger). Sizing down to 43 or 42.5 had painful hotspots on the big toe knuckle. Toes curls just enough with a snug fit to keep the shoe rigid under tension for foot chips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scarpa Instinct VSR Review I bought this to upgrade from my previous Scarpa Arpias. The Instinct fit my foot much better and had a nicer form fitting heel. The edging on these shoes is next level, and the softness of the rubber allows smearing confidence. I have been bouldering exclusively outside in these for a month and the shoes has held up nicely. One adjustment is that the increased rubber in the forefoot allows for less stretch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite shoe for gym bouldering This is my favorite all around indoor shoe, though I mostly boulder. It has enough downturn for overhangs, but still smears very well and sticks to slabby volumes. Solid heal and toe hooks. I think the stickiness of the XS Grip 2 rubber is great indoors. My gym rarely has small, sharp edges; when they do show up, "smedging" works well. The granite I climb on outside does have a lot of small, sharp edges. I find these shoes deform too much and get torn up quickly. I definitely prefer a shoe with XS Edge rubber outside. (Note, I'm 170-180lbs) My street shoe size is Men's 9.5 and I have this shoe in both 41.5 and 42. The smaller shoe takes some effort to put on, but then fits very well heal and toe. The larger shoe fits great in the toe, but the heal is a bit baggy. They are much easier to put on and I can wear them for longer without discomfort. I notice minimal performance decrease versus the smaller size. Neither size stretched significantly after break-in. My only complaint is that the inner liner is orange and stains the bottom of my feet. When I take my shoes off, I look like I have a terrible foot fungus. I put up with this because the shoes are great to climb in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Shoe This is my second time but this pair of shoe and I love it. The softer rubber feels super nice and works great for the indoor climbing that I do.

I wear a 37 in my pair of women’s Vapor V lace ups. What size would suggest in the Instinct?

Asked by: Eli1223
Hello Eli1223! The sizing on these is similar to the Vapor V. You should be good to go with your same size. If for some reason they don't work out we have a great return/exchange policy! (https://www.moosejaw.com/content/returns)

Size query I wear a size 40 in lasportiva katana Velcro. My foot is slim and long with low volume and a heel on the small side (I can’t wear solutions because I don’t fill out the heel cup) What size would fit best in these? 

Asked by: Chelle84
Hey there Chelle84, These shoes run very similar in size to the Katana velcros. If they for some reason do not work out, you can find our return/exchange policy right here: https://www.moosejaw.com/content/returns Happy climbing!

When will y'all have a 44.5 in the vsr?

Asked by: Skyler
Hiya Skyler, thanks for your question! If you don't see a size listed on the product page it means that we are temporarily out of stock. We do tend to restock fairly often so please check back. Once we have more of that size available either in our warehouse or via special order that selection will be listed on the product page. I'm sorry I don't have more information for you!

Asked by: Ethan
Thanks for reaching out! Unfortunately, we do not have a notification service. My best suggestion is to keep checking back. Please don't hate us :(
