Details

    Fox Racing has a proven track record of championships with their premium Instinct Boots. They’ve doubled down on that success for 2018 and released the latest Instinct with a set of refinements that push the boot’s performance to another level yet again.

    The Instinct’s core features remain the same, so you’re still getting an unrivaled level of comfort right out of the box with zero break in time, the excellent buckle system that uses ball-and-socket type closures, and the dual-pivoting ankle hinges with lockout that prevent hyperextension injuries.

    Differences and improvements for the 2018 model start with a new Duratac rubber compound that’s been engineered for the greatest amount of wear resistance and grip. This new rubber makes up the entirety of the sole so it can resist wear from sharp pegs, and it reaches up the entire length of boot’s medial side—giving a high level of grip as well as feedback from the bike. Along with a profile that’s been slimmed down even further, the 2018 Fox Racing Instinct Boots are among the most advanced mx and off-road boots ever offered.

    New For 2018
  • New Duratac compound provides the best of grip and wear resistance
  • Duratac features improved durability and unprecedented grip on outsole and burn guard
  • A Slim medial design keeps you close to the bike
  • Low ride chassis gets the riders foot lower and closer to the footpeg

    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 calves 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

Top Quality Boot!
I have always wanted a pair of these and I am glad I got them. Quality is exceptional and the fit is as well. You can definitely feel the tech and quality put into them and are comfortable from the first time you put your foot into them. Definitely recommend!

Not good for Ankle Protection
These boots on the surface look like state of the art MX boots, but underneath, I found that they are incredibly soft in the ankle zone, and I suffered because of it.

Please see the attached pictures showing the amount of dorsiflexion protection compared with my old 2014 Alpinestar Tech 5. In both pictures I applied approximately the same force on each boot (approx 10-15 lbs of pressure on the first test, and then approx 50lbs of pressure on the second test). The Fox Instincts folded like wet paper.

I would have thought that a brand-new high-end boot would have better support than a mid-grade 5 year old boot. But I had to learn the lesson the hard way.

If looking good and having a ton of ankle movement is important to you, then I am sure these boots are superior to other brands, but if you want proper ankle protection, I would definitely recommend looking elsewhere (I am going to try the TECH10's or the SIDI Crossfire 3's next, once I heal fully).

Lacks Durability
I broke 7 buckles in the space of a year owning these. I ride single track and the occasional MX track. Lack durability to say the least. They run very small. I am a 9.5 shoe size with a very skinny foot and the 10's boot my foot to sleep. If you have a wide foot, could be even more uncomfortable. I switched to Tech 7's and have not broken a buckle this season.

Just what I needed
These boots provide good flexibility while still providing good protection and good peg feel. Definitely what I needed and a step up from ADV boots.

Great boot for the price. (I bought them on closeout)
Like most Fox gear, get one size larger and you should have no problem with fit. I really enjoy how much I can feel exactly where my foot is on the pegs. The ankle protection is a very nice piece of mind for me. The latch system is great, although after a moto or two you'll need to brush the dirt out and give the lower ones a little oil. Over all I would definitely recommend. I can't really comment on durability yet, I have about 3hrs on them and the soles don't show any wear.

Fox Instinct Boots 2018
Wow, I am so happy I have chosen to purchase these boots. 1 being that they are so comfortable right out of the box. Their will be hardly any break-in time required with these. The style is freaking awesome. I am a plane colored type of guy and I chose the Light Grey version. Couldn't be happier! HIGHLY RECOMMEND

will this boot keep your feet dry in wet sloppy trail conditions???
David A on Jun 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Fox Instinct Boots are durable through wet and sloppy trails. You will want to prevent water from entering at the top cuff of the boot because it will cause them to get wet in the inside. Wearing the correct riding pants with your boots will help deter water damage. I would also recommend the Instinct Offroad boot. The Instinct Offroad is weather proof and was designed for wet rock, steep hill, and exceptional traction for these types of obstacles.
I’m a size 10.5 in shoes should I go with 10 boot and just break them in or get an 11?
A shopper on Jun 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I typically wear a size 11 and I went with size 12 on the Instinct boot. I have wide feet and it was still snug but good. I'd recommend going with a 10.5 or 11 especially if you have wide feet. Other reviews indicated that the Instinct boots run small so I'm not the only one. Hope that helps.
Hello I was wondering, I generally wear a size 12 in shoes and boots, when I bought my comps 5s a while back I bought size 12 they felt snug and with my current tech 7s there a little roomy, just wondering how well these fit and if there true to size? Thanks
Nick S on Feb 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: My old tech 6 where also too roomy at size 12 but the instincts fit really well at size 12 for me. I think instincts just have more padding and are far more comfy. I also tried on instincts in 11 but they where too snug and bugging me. I do have a wider foot though. I normally wear a size 12 skate shoe like the fat DVS ones and a size 11-11.5 for fancier shoes like Hugo Boss or Diesel. Maybe you can get thinner/thicker socks to fine tune the fit.
Are these Italian or European made boots or made in Asia some place?
kevin h on May 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Made in China
