Retaining the same reactive last and powerful rands of the infamous Instinct VS, the big change in the Instinct VSR is the use of a softer rubber. Instead of a 3mm Vibram XS Edge, a more sensitive Vibram Grip 2 compound is used which should have a particular appeal to climbers who are after the secure feeling of their feet on the tiniest of holds.
The Instinct VSR will suit the advanced climber for technical sport climbing routes and bold bouldering problems. Its aggressive down-turned toe allows for fast and extremely precise foot placements. Much like the rest of the Instinct range, the VSR is constructed with a bi-tension active rand starting under the toe area which is connected to the heel rand, this serves to pull power from the toes instead of cramming toes forward to activate power allowing for more comfort and active feedback. The slipper design with one floating velcro attachment makes taking the shoe on an off a breeze with scope for customised adjustability to keep your feet securely wrapped up.
Overall, the softer mid-sole should in theory open up the Instinct VSR to a more all-around appeal rather than being more geared towards edging like the VS.
