Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome heel I tried on my friend’s pair of the Instincts and kinda fell in love with how they fit my feet. Dead space was minimal. She had broken them in already and I loved how they were able to move with my feet when I curled my toes but were still stiff enough to feel secure on small holds. What I liked the best was how secure the heel felt on heel hooks. I hooked on a sloper and it felt so good omg I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fit for my feet I tried several different climbing shoes at my local gym. These by far fit me the best. They form to my foot like a sock. They perform great! The heel is incredible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scarpa Instict VS This is my second pair. I do mostly bouldering inside and outside. These shoes fits like a glove, little wider around your feet but still very snug. Velcro strapping is very convenient. Awesome heel and toe. A lot of rubber (Vibram) holds up really well and last awhile. Def recommend these shoes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoes! My son loves these shoes! Shipped super fast too! They fit perfectly and he loves the color too. The customer service rep helped assist us in exchanging for a better fit too. Hassle free return!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long time scarpa fan It's all about fit for me. I've tried a lot of shoes and the heel had always been a problem. Scarpa seems to fit me the best. I had a different model previous, and the Instinct is the closest match. Great shoe, heel is a little loose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfiest Aggresive Shoe This was actually my second pair after I left my first at Rumney. These are ridiculously comfortable shoes for their profile, and fit my feet like a glove. I have long and broad toes. Street size i'm an 8.5 or 9. I got these in 42.5. My vapors are size 43. These barely stretch, just enough to conform to small foot features. don't size down expecting them to go up a half size. They won't. Heel is the best I've worn. It's like a vacuum every time I take them off with a nice foomp sound. They are bomber for heel hooks. Narrow heel and wide/long toes, these could be a good fit for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to shoe. The best all-around performance shoe that I've found. The toebox is excellent for those with a wider forefoot, and the heel fits fantastically - no deadspace. For me, it hits the nice compromise between sensitivity and support/power, though some might prefer a softer shoe. When I'm at a steeper area, like Rifle or the Red River Gorge, I reach for the super-soft Furias, and if I know I'm going to be exclusively edging at a place like the New River Gorge, I go for the stiffer Instinct Laces. For everything else, the Instinct VS is king.
