Scarpa Instinct VS Women's Climbing Shoe

At last, the Instinct VS Women's introduces a version of the Instinct for climbers with low-volume feet. All of the features are the same as the classic Instinct VS apart from the narrower heel lower volume toe-box. Finally, climbers with low-volume feet have access to a shoe in the Instinct family.

The Instinct VS Women's sits somewhere in between the Instinct Lace and Instinct SR models to create a versatile and technical shoe that excels at all types of climbing. Both sensitive and comfortable, supportive and flexible, it's a great all-round performer.

Vibram XS Grip rubber provides maximum edging support on the smallest of footholds as well as being highly durable. The Bi-Tension rand not only focuses the shoe's power through the toes but also ensures it maintains its performance shape over its lifespan.

A fantastic shoe for intermediate to advanced climbers.

Sole: Vibram XS Edge 3.5 mm
Heel: Vibram XS 2 3.5 mm
Last: FV (low asymmetry, moderate downturn)
Upper: Synthetic Micro Suede

Instinct VS Women's Climbing Shoe

Vibram XS Edge™

Rubber compound built for maximum performance on micro holds and extreme edging. This formula uses an improved plastic deformation resistance that ensures the utmost stability, rigidity, and support on footholds in hot or cold weather, as well as generally increasing durability.

Instinct VS Women's Climbing Shoe

Bi-Tension Rand™

A rand that that pulls power from the toes to achieve performance with less tension and less painful toe cramming. The Bi-Tension Rand also reduces the amount of rubber needed under the toes, which means a lower weight and a higher sensitivity.
