The Scarpa Instinct VS Rock Shoe is just a tad softer than the Instinct. They tuned up the slipper design with a single strap and Vibram XS Edge rubber to resist deformation when standing on micro-flakes and edges.

Sensitivity, with just enough power from the Bi-Tension randing for standing on dimes, these do it all.
