 in Customer Rewards when you buy this item today

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

Your Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up; ready for collection via Click & Collect or despatch to you — it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Scarpa Instinct Lace Climbing Shoe - Black

Season : AW21

Brand : Scarpa

Code : 5066887

Based on the original model, the Scarpa Instinct Lace is a lighter and more sensitive version with a more adjustable fit. The lacing allows for another level of custom fit, ensuring that your foot is secure to enable absolute precision when working and ultimately crushing difficult routes. The design is best suited to sport, indoor and bouldering, enahnced by the Instinct VS heel cup to give an extra advantage. There's plenty of rubber, with highly grippy Vibram XS Edge also over the toes, giving plenty of versatility and ability on tiny holds. The microfibre upper works with a TPU cage to give greater support to the foot and prevent torsional movement and roll, allowing for more extreme edging. Once you've worn the rubber out from sending many, many routes, the construction allows the Instinct Lace to be resoled for even more use.

Buyers Guide - How to choose Rock Shoes

With over 70 different styles of men’s, women’s and kid’s rockshoes available across our physical and online shops, choosing the right pair of rock shoes can be a daunting prospect!

The key to buying amazing climbing footwear is to come into the shops, chat with our friendly, experienced staff and take the time to try on lots of different types. Regardless of whether you are a beginner or experienced climber, rock shoes are close-fitting and made very differently from normal shoes, so a precision fit is really important to enjoy your climbing.

We stock adult rock shoes from size UK2 (EU 35) to UK 14.5 (EU 50) and children’s sizes from UK Jnr 10.

- What is the difference between a rockboot, a rockshoe and a climbing slipper?
- Why are there so many different types of rock shoe to choose from?
- Should I wear rockshoes with socks?
- What should I look for as a beginner?
- How should rockshoes fit?
- What is a last and how is it important?

- Why are there different types of rubber used on the sole?
- How can I make my rockshoes last longer?

Top tips to make the right choice:

Don’t use price as your guide. Chat through the type of climbing you do and what you are planning so that we can help you make the best choice.

If you are planning on using your rockshoes at altitude – size up to allow for expansion. Lace-up shoes are good for allowing your feet a little extra space. Especially if you are climbing in the cold when blood circulation is critical.

When you try on a lace-up shoe, undo the laces completely and then tighten them accordingly from toe to ankle.

Come into the shop with lots of time to spare so that you can try lots of shoes on to compare. We also have holds for you to try them on so you can see how they feel when you put your weight on your foot.
