Details


    The Instinct Boot is the premiem, pro-level offering in the Fox lineup of motocross boots and has some of the best protection, comfort, and mobility of any boot currently offered. It's one of our favorite boots in its premium price tier, and the boot is good enough that it's worn by pro racers Ken Roczen and Ryan Dungey.

    Key to the Instinct's performance is the amount of specialized tech worked into the boot, a level that's hard to in other boots. It begins at the base of the boot with a steel-shanked, new-style bonded sole made from Fox’s Duratac, a rubber-type material designed to be incredibly durable and incredibly tacky for extended wear on the pegs and great control when you sqeeze the bike with your legs. Duratac is found extending up the inner-calf side of the boot as well, creating a large gripping surface and a very large patch of heat protection.

    The rest of the boot is covered in large layouts of stiff, durable TPU panels that form shin and ankle impact protection. The ankle gets more support from a reinforced heel cup at the rear which doubles as a hyperextension stop for the biomechanical hinge system. The dual hinge system gives you a biomechanical hinge on either side of the boot, and when the hinges rotate, the supportive strut or spine on the rear of the boot flexes to absorb excess energy.

    The hinge and support strut system results in excellent hyperextension and hyperflexion protection, as well as a large degree of movement and flexibility. The result is great injury protection, range of motion, and a boot with an exceptionally small break-in period.

    Comfort is increased by the mesh and microfiber inner materials and a multi-density insole that many riders say has a very comfortable, sneaker-like feel. More comfort comes from the unique set of self-cleaning, very easy to use buckles that firmly lever shut and mimic a ball and socket joint at their closure point. At the tip of the buckle is a small cup, and when closed this cup latches onto a small ball on the body of the boot. When latched, each buckle's ball and socket joint are free to pivot and self adjust as your foot flexes and extends, putting less stress on the buckles themselves and keeping your foot comfortable and free of pinch/pressure points.

    Protection
  • Biomechanical hinge system on both medial and lateral sides
  • Hinge lockout system prevents hyperextension and hyperflexion injuries
  • Hinges aid in preventing rotational injuries
  • Supportive strut on back absorbs forces from over extension
  • TPU reinforced supportive heel cup stabilizes foot
  • Reinforced toe box improves crush and impact protection
  • Large protective TPU panels covering shin and rear of boot

    Comfort
  • Toe box has been slimmed in height for easy shifting
  • Internal mesh and microfiber materials wick sweat and promote ventilation
  • Multi-density insole has form fitting, comfortable feel of a sneaker
  • Calf opening compensates to fit large calfs and knee braces
  • Buckle uses a ball and socket type clasp that's easily closed and opened
  • Buckle design allows several degrees of pivoting movement
  • Pivoting buckles eliminate pinch and pressure points as foot moves
  • Low profile chassis gives comfortable, precise feel of bike

    Construction
  • Self-adjusting, pivoting 4 buckle design
  • New-school bonded Duratac sole
  • Sole is fully replaceable
  • Duratac material has great grip and long life on the pegs
  • Full-length Duratec inner heat shield/grip surface
  • Steel shank reinforced sole for arch support, limited flex, and stiffness
  • DURATAC outsole has a limited wear warranty. Consult the Users Manual for details

Great boots
I love the fit of my new Instincts, they broke in easy and are very comfortable. My only gripe is they squeek a bit if you dont lube the ankle pivots.

Solid boots
I bought these to replace some Fox Comp 5 boots. I need a wide boot and these fit well enough, especially compared to the Euro brands that all run skinny.

These boots offer good protection. The buckles are reasonably easy to lock in. The boots are a little wide in the inner ankle, but you get used to it. These boots are NOT water resistant. If you are using them offroad crossing streams and such, you should coat them with something or you will have wet feet.

Super comfy but too narrow!
These were VERY comfortable right out of the box and roomy enough for my wider calf’s. However they were too narrow for my wide feet. I normally buy wide width shoes and these were just too narrow so I returned them. If you have an average width or narrow width these would be great! For the record the Gaerne Boots are for those with wide feet!

Good for 3 Rides
Boots were good for the first 3 rides. Then an inch portion on the boots ripped from the bottom of the sole. I took pictures and sent them to Rocky Mountain and around a week later I was notified that they wouldn't be replaced because that is where I put my feet on the foot pegs? I didn't know you could put your feet anywhere else but the foot pegs? If you want boots that will last then I would go with Gaerne SG-12 or Forma Predator. I have had fox racing stuff for many years and have been pretty disappointed with all of their products and their customer service. Will not buy again.

Great boots very comfortable out of the box
These Boots are great and feel great right out of box not stiff and already feel broke in and for the closeout price can’t be beat. They do run a size small I wear a size 11 in Nike tennis shoes so I ordered a size 12 baised off other reviews glad I did cause they fit perfect ! I don’t have a narrow fit I would say in between. An still plenty of room in toe box but not way to much also very low profile feel completely different than the old style boots

Very comfortable boot right off the bat little break in time I like how slim and Sleek they feel on the bike.
I bought these boots because they were on clearance. They are black and orange more like neon orange a little loud for my taste but the Price Is Right and I'm learning to like them anyways. I have a narrow foot and they fit perfect the boot is true to size. Love the Buckle system and it's a very comfortable boot. I've only done one Hare Scramble with them and one long ride day which consisted of many creek crossings and they kept my feet nice and dry. We shall see how durable they are this is the first pair of boots I bought they have the molded soles. They're sleeker than my last pair of Garney S12 maybe they don't have as much protection but they are not as bulky either.

Great boot
These boots are awesome. They are so comfortable I can wear them 8+ hrs on long rides and not have any problems. The buckles are great. Only problem is they are a bit hot but that’s just about standard for any boot you wear

What do they weigh? ( 12 size )

BEST ANSWER: They both weight approximately 11 pounds. Please note that the weight is as a pair and not each boot individually.
How is the fit? Are they more for wide feet or no? How is the toe box area?
Hannah C on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The fit is excellent with the only issue being the one that most boots have. Order a size up from what you wear in shoes. I have a slightly wide foot and they fit just a touch snug but still extremely comfortable. The toe box is more generous than other boots I have tried and the best thing for me was the top has a lot of room for expansion for larger calves and doesn't have Velcro to rub on you if you can close it enough. I can also say that Rocky Mountain was amazing for allowing me to return 2 other pairs of boots that didn't work, so even if these don't work for you it shouldn't be an issue to try something else. Good luck and hope that helps.
Do work well for a small calf?. And skinny feet. And what size would I get if I wear 10
A shopper on Jun 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I love the Fox boots, but I think that for small calves and narrow feet Sidi boots might be a better boot. I tried the boots attached and they were quite a bit more narrow through the footbed and in the top calf area. I know that some of the models even have user replaceable soles but I wasn't looking for anything like that. Also, as with most boots I would size up one above what you normally wear. Even if these wouldn't work Rocky Mountain was awesome about returning 2 pairs for me when I had issues with the calf size in the other boots. Hopefully that helps and good luck.

Does the orange match up with ktm orange?
Landon P on Apr 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: When I got mine they did not match. I returned them and got the white/black which looked much nicer.
I wore a 9 in alpinestars. Switched to instincts years ago. Had to get a size 10. Have they fixed the sizing? Do I get a 9 in instinct now or stick with 10?
Clayton H on Dec 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I think the sizing is closer, but still not true to size yet. I'm 11.5 in sneakers. With older Instincts, I had to go to 13 (size 12 in Astars). I got a pair of 2017 Instincts in 13, because the 12 was still too tight, however the 13's were a bit looser than previous model. I just wear two pairs of socks to compensate, with zero issues. Hope this helps
