Scarpa Instinct S Climbing Shoe

The Scarpa Instinct S is the performance boulder and slab slipper climbing shoe of the multitalented Instinct family. Like its sister shoes, the Instinct S features a delicate layer of 3.55mm thick rubber to ensure maximum sensitivity. Combining this with the Vibram XS Grip2 compound gives the Instinct S an unbridled ability to feel the rock's surface with the foot, detect almost imperceptible holds, and grip onto them with the greatest level of confidence possible. The Instinct S thrives on sustained overhanging terrain with minimal footholds and for smearing on polished, glassy slab routes on granite. Climb better, climb instinctively.

Being a slipper, the Instinct S has been designed to fit as snugly as possible to achieve a performance fit. The upper is synthetic microsuede which will break-in over time but provide the absolute minimum amount of stretch, so remember to size appropriately. If you're looking for a more all-round performance shoe, try the Instinct VS velcro version.

Features

Instinct S Climbing Shoe

Vibram XS Grip2™

Rubber compound built for pure friction, recommended for use where maximum grip is the primary need - bouldering and sport climbing, indoor climbing, or extremely smooth, polished routes.

Instinct S Climbing Shoe

Bi-Tension Rand™

A rand that that pulls power from the toes to achieve performance with less tension and less painful toe cramming. The Bi-Tension Rand also reduces the amount of rubber needed under the toes, which means a lower weight and a higher sensitivity.

• Specialised toe patch is made from softer rubber for high-friction toe-hooking
• Lorica® upper allows for zero stretch, maintaining the same performance-fit forever

good

very tight

good soft instinct

Size:
I recommend buying the same size as Instinct VS (wmn) and Drago.

Pros:
1. it's an instinct, so the toe is so good.
2. heel hook is very secure.
3. soft enough to smear on volume, softer than VS wmn.
Cons:
1. as slipper, the topline is very tight, my achilles tendon gets crushed hard.
2. toebox is a bit too narrow, more narrow than VS wmn.
3. heel is too spherical like Solution. I prefer the heel of VS wmn. heel hook is good though.

Comfy board shoe

The toe of this should is the best I have found. It is tight yet comfortable and sticks to everything. However the heel of this shoe is absolutely useless, slips right off as soon as you engage a heel hook.

Fantastic Redesign

I picked up a pair of these to use as my primary gym shoes since they were a bit cheaper than the Instinct VSRs which I use for outdoor climbing. They fit like a glove, even on heel hooks, and are perfect for steep terrain and volumes. Not to mention they are the best-looking shoes I've ever owned. Kudos to the Scarpa team on the new design, I'm in love. Sizing is the same as the Instinct VS and Instinct VSR.

Like a glove

Tight but comfortable. Best fitting climbing shoes ever!
