Manufacturer's Description

Striking a balance of support and sensitivity, the Instinct picks up where SCARPA’s Vision – a classic rock shoe with a strong cult following – left off.

Steep sport climbing, bouldering or gym climbing, the Instinct is at home in situations where dynamic and intuitive moves reign.

The most versatile performance shoe in the SCARPA rock line, the Instinct has a roomy toe box, so it’s also fairly comfortable for a high-performing rock shoe. The all-suede Instinct is built with innovative Active Rand Technology, and uses 4 mm Vibram XS Grip 2 rubber.
