With a curved, asymmetric last with a slightly softer construction and thinner sole for enhanced flexibility and sensitivity, the Instinct VS is the cornerstone of the Instinct fleet, shining across a variety of styles and disciplines. A floating power strap to enhance fit and power and a chiseled low-profile toe for added precision in pockets and on restrictive footholds, this shoe cares not for what route you're pining for. It'll be ready to go.

A Bi-Tension system reaches down both sides of the Instinct, giving priority to sensitivity and support while leaving the center pad for sensitivity. An integrated toe cap allows for powerful and precise toe hooking and a 2/3-length midsole and outsole provide solid support when standing on your toes on technical terrain. 

The Instinct VS is a one-quiver shoe for climbers looking for power and sensitivity on the overhangs and minimal edging and pocket placement precision on more technical terrain.
