The Scarpa Instinct SR is a sleek high performance rock climbing shoe, designed with steep athletic rock routes and indoor climbing in mind.

The large rubber cover above the toe area enables powerful toe-hooking, there's an integral heel cup for sensitive heel-hooking, a slightly asymmetrical and downturned shape with a medium angled toe box for precision footwork.

A five panelled microfiber upper, REB reinforced elastic closure with seamless big toe panel and seamless four-toe panel offer the best custom moulding fit. Full Ultra-sticky M50 rubber on the top of the toes and heel cup massively improve hooking and camming, and this combines perfectly with the 3.5mm three quarter length XS Grip 2 sole to offer some the highest levels of performance available on steep terrain.

Instinct Series

High performance and versatility are the universal characteristics of the Instinct line. Climbers that seek a versatile shoe that performs on all angles as well as varied footholds will appreciate these shoes with their balanced midsoles and active tension systems. Hooking with both the toes and especially the heels are strengths of the Instinct line.

Help with sizing your rock climbing shoes

As with all the modern performance Scarpa's, the Instinct SR provides reliably similar sizing - i.e. if you are a 42 in the Vapour Lace, Instinct VS/Lace, Boostic etc. you should be a 42 in this shoe.

Really good

Takes some time to break in, maybe 5-6 sessions of more than 2hrs climbing. It is good for smearing as well as some heel work. Good fit for my heel. I normally wear 4. Got this pair for 4.5. It is a bit tight in the beginning but perfectly fit once break in

To be honest the tow box is a bit to tight to be my comfy boot, Hope they going to stretch a bit over time

Performance shoe at a bargain price

Picked the up on sale for 69.95. Bit of a punt since I don't usually wear scarpa, but the recent addition of foot shape to the shoe size guide made me think they might work for me since I have longer second than first toes. On the shoe guide advice I also went a euro size Down which is the second most technical fit. At first they felt very tight, took a while to get on and were hard to get off, but loosened up a bit after a few sessions. I think they are a brilliant shoe, really good on steep ground and tiny edges (I bought them for indoor climbing on my moonboard and bouldering outside, mostly on moorland granite).
