Product description
When the angle kicks back and the moves get hard, trust the Scarpa Instinct VS Climbing Shoe to see you through to the chains. The aggressive downturn and sensitive midsole allow you to toe-in on edges and solution pockets while the innovative Bi-Tension system provides maximum power in the big toe without excess pain. Plus, the single hook-and-loop strap makes on and off a breeze.
  • Durable Lorica uppers provide a snug fit that will not stretch out over time
  • Single floating hook-and-loop strap ensures a secure fit with easy on and off
  • The Instinct’s super-soft midsole enhances sensitivity and precision
  • Scarpa’s Bi-Tension system utilizes a reverse slingshot rand anchored under the toe-box for maximum power in the big toe without crushing your little piggies so you have the power to toe-down hard without the pain
  • Vibram XS Edge rubber resists distortion and performs consistently on the hardest edge moves in hot and cold weather
  • The rubber toe-patch improves toe-scums, hooks, and bicycles

Genialer Schuh, leider ist der Zehengummi zu weich

Der Schuh passt nach dem eintragen perfekt und schmiegt sich wie eine Socke um den Fuß. Das an- und ausziehen geht auch super easy ohne viel herumfummeln.
Der Schuh hat ungefähr die Passform vom VaporV und fällt damit etwas breiter und größer aus als der Boostic.
(LaSportiva Schuhe passen mir in der Regel nicht weil sie zu schmal sind, der Scarpa sitzt aber perfekt!)

Ich find den Schuh absolut genial zum Hooken, toe und heel!! Zum steigen auf kleinen Tritten du auf Reibung auch super, vor allem im Überhang spielt ist er fast unschlagbar.

Das einzige Manko, der Zehengummi auf der Oberseite des Schuhs ist sehr schnell durchgewetzt! Oft drückt man nur damit an den Fels um das Gleichgewicht halten zu können und auch dabei lässt man mächtig Gummi liegen. Der Grip ist dafür extrem gut.
Mir wäre ein etwas härterer Gummi mit weniger grip aber dafür längerer Lebensdauer lieber.

Da er preislich doch in der Oberliga spielt, bin ich mir nicht sicher ob ich den Schuh nochmals kaufen würde.

Good fit
High edge stability
Good grip
Not sturdy

Super für kleinste Leisten

Der Schuh ist nichts für abschüssige und glatte Triite, aber perfekt für kleinste Triite, die sich gleich 10 Mal so gross an fühlen, wie mit anderen Schuhen.
Dazu ist die Verarbeitung viel besser als bei La Sportiva.

High edge stability
Harte Sohle

My favourite shoes!

Shoes are very personal. The size, the shape, the fit, the style of climbing.

These are great for edging, toe and heel hooks - perfect for bouldering.

The shape fits my feet perfectly - you really need to try a pair on and see if it fits the shape of your feet and determine what size you need.

The rubber is strong and sturdy meaning it provides great support for edging, toe work and it has good grip although due to it's rather aggressive shape (it arches), I find that it's not great for trad/ slabs where you want to apply as much surface of the sole of shoes as possible but it's certainly not bad - it's... good. As the rubber is not as soft, it doesn't wear down as quick and stretches only a little (maybe a quarter size).

For me, it wraps my feet securely meaning I can pretty much use the top, sides, bottom and heel without the feet slipping inside the shoes giving me excellent control.

Definitely buying these again or the newer Instinct VS-Rs.

Tip for putting them on (as they are like tight slippers) - fold the heel down, and slip feet in then stick fingers into straps and pull strap (heel of shoes) back out and over your heel!
