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

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

Great boot, however it has a big BUT
Dont give me wrong, The boot is great. I bit cheaper than the competition. I have used them for almost 2 months, and the whole boot is crumbling in pieces, not sure how long will it last. Its a great boot for the short run.

Fox Instinct - Comfortable with great sensitivity
I love Fox Instincts for the simple fact of how comfortable they are. They feel like sneakers on your feet and you can run with these boots out of the box. Feel at the shifter and brake pedal are excellent. Buckle system is good; Sidi and Gaerne buckles are better, but no issues with these and each pair comes with spares. Just check buckle clasp mounting screws every once in a while as they might loosen up over time.

Great Boot
Top of the line boot. No break in needed. Light weight and very comfortable. This is the 2nd pair I've owned. The 1st pair are 4 years old and the soles are still in decent shape.I am a 260 lb Vet rider. I just wanted something fresh and new looking. As with the 1st pair these boots run 1 full size small !!

Tried and True
I bought the first gen instincts in 2013 when their sizing was a little off so I had those in 11. Have loved them since I bought them so since it was time for new boots, went with the same Instinct but excited to try these new Generation with the nice new interior and slightly slimmer ankle.

Since they corrected the size, I went with a 10 and it was tricky. 11 I have too much room and although the 10 is tight out of the box, I have been wearing them around the house and it is breaking in slowly, 10 is the correct size. In shoes I wear a 9.5 nike and vans. I love all the brands of boots but I just can't ignore my love of the duratac bottom flat profile and light nature of the instinct. They might not last forever but I just love them.

Tip! The light grey color is awesome but it is not really a grey! It is like a super light blue mixed with purple and grey. Pictures just don't capture it very well but is neato! My hope is they fare better to mud than a plain white. Thanks to Chase for answering my youtube questions, always a happy RM customer.

No break in required
I purchased these on clearance. The fit is excellent and they did not need to be broken in at all. Full day of trails in the heat and no sore spots on my feet or calves from the boots.

Awesome boot
I was a little worried about comfort when I first tried them on, but they are really great once the short break in is over. Really comfortable and the best part is they are really light. The shin guard is really thick, so over the pant boots have to really be stretched on. The only thing I'm not wild about is the buckles, but its a minor gripe at this point. I've had alpinestar tech 8 and 10, gaerne sg 10, 11 and 12s. I think these are going to be my favorite boot from now on.

Fox 2018 Instincts Red.
I've had Sidi Crossfire 3s and Gaerne SG12s as my most recent boots. The feel of the Instincts is phenomenal compared to the other 2. Putting them on is a breeze and bike grip is excellent.
I think the other 2 probably provide better protection but you loose the feel. To me the Instincts provide a perfect balance.

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.
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.
Are these Italian or European made boots or made in Asia some place?
kevin h on May 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Made in China
