Scarpa Instinct Lace
- Our Price
An updated classic with a few new tricks up it's sleeve. Maintaining the slight downturn of the Instinct shoe family, while not being aggressively asymmetrical.
Based on the highly popular Instinct Last, they now have a 3/4 outsole in Vibram XS Edge with a microfibre (synthetic leather) upper, to give a more consistent fit through the life of the shoe, unlike the full leather original, along with a TPU cage to fully support the foot and reduce torwue while edging.
The heel has also been improved taking the heel cup & tension band from the popular Instinct VS, while the toe box has been updated with the toe patch from the new Stix.
A great shoe for hard bouldering and sport climbs where edging performance is a priority.
I found the fit & sizing pretty similar to the Instinct VS & Stix (but it was hot in here when I tried them!). From normal street shoe size it is about 2 EU sizes down. -Dan

Based on the original Instinct model, this new lace up is much lighter and sensitive with its microfibre upper and 3/4 Outsole design. Wrapped wtih TPU cage it gives great foot support and prevents torsional movement and roll during extreme edging. This has allowed us to bolt on the Instinct VS heel cup making an this shoe exceptional weapon for both sport climbers and boulderers.
