SCARPA Instinct VS Climbing Shoes - Women's

Size Chart

The SCARPA Instinct VS Women's Climbing Shoe is the top choice for professional female climbers around the world thanks to its downturned profile, softer construction, and asymmetrical last. The aggressive shape of the shoe is perfect for overhung routes while the soft style gives you the flexibility you need to trust the smallest slab crystals. With plenty of toe rubber on top, you'll never blow out of a toe hook again while the Vibram XS Grip rubber throughout gives you the confidence you need to trust even the greasiest of footholds. With a single hook and loop strap for a snug fit and a comfortable microsuede upper, the Instinct is the perfect do-it-all climbing shoe ready to help you send the rig.
