The newest addition to the SCARPA rock range, the Instinct VS, subtlety blends the characteristics of the Slipper and Lace-Up versions to create a superb technical shoe.

The Instinct VS features the same Lorica upper used on the Instinct Slipper which provides great flexibility and ensures that the shoes hold their shape longer than leather equivalents

The Lorica upper is built around the down-turned toe last of the Instinct family ensuring precise toe placements with high levels of feedback. Vibram XS-Edge ensures that your feet will stay planted on the smallest of edges and stiffens up the toe increasing responsiveness. Bi-Tension technology intimately connects the toe and the heel of the boot helping to increase overall performance which is guaranteed to last.

The Velcro strap keeps the heel of the shoe firmly secured to your foot even on the most demanding heel-hooks with the new toe rand design providing durable performance on toe-hooks.

Instinct S - XSG2

AS THE NAME SUGGESTS, THE NEW INSTINCT SLIPPER INSPIRES THE CLIMBER TO FOLLOW THEIR INSTINCT, ALLOWING FAST AND PRECISE FOOT PLACEMENTS IN ANY DIRECTION THANKS TO ITS “STRAIGHT FORWARD“, DOWN TURNED LAST SHAPE. The concept follows the fact that fast decisions and creative moves are key for success in modern overhanging sport routes and boulder problems. The instant comfort is amazing, still getting incredible performance in any climbing situation. The Instinct is available in two different versions, an all leather upper with a fast lacing system for extra precise fit and a synthetic Lorica slipper version with Elastic Band. Both versions provide amazing precision and sensitivity. Vibram's new XSGrip 2 rubber provides the next level of friction.

Vapour V

THIS CLASSIC, ALL-AROUND HIGH PERFORMANCE SHOE OFFERS PRECISION, SENSITIVITY, POWER AND COMFORT. The Scarpa Vapour was an instant hit when we launched it back in 2010 we felt it was time for an update.  Still utilising Scarpa's Slingshot-Power™ system the overall last and end use remain the same; a comfortable shoe that is surprisingly capable (Dave Macleod has climbed E10 in his!).  To improve the Vapour V we’ve changed the aesthetics, added a rubber toe patch and improved the heel fit to make our most popular velcro shoe even better. If you're after one shoe for indoor climbing, bouldering, sport climbing and even multipitch traditional climbing then the Vapour V is the shoe to choose. We've kept the popular and high performing Vibram XS Edge rubber.
