The Instinct from Scarpa is a high performance lace-up shoe for all-around climbing. Featuring an aggressive, downturned toe shape and extra rubber on the the knuckles and heel, the Instinct is perfect for heel and toe hooks on steep overhangs. A full suede upper and lace-up construction allow the shoe to break-in and mold to a variety of foot shapes for a customized fit. Scarpa uses Vibram XS Grip 2 on the Instinct, which provides superb, sticky traction for pulling on holds, as well as sensitivity when edging. The Instinct also utilizes the Bi-Tension active rand system, which transfers force and leverage to the toes without cramming. The Scarpa Instinct is a great choice if you want an aggressive performance shoe for various types of climbing.
