I bought these around Black Friday. And now that winter has finally decided to leave I got to finally use them last weekend. Been up in the air about the fit for a while I have sent them back and had different sizes sent to me. I’m coming from a tech 7 and I dunno if you can beat the fit of those things. I’ll wear these and see how they break in. All in all I like my new boots after a couple different insoles but still miss my tech 7s and still plan to wear them dual sporting.

Great boots. They fit great and they feel great. No breakin period.
These boots are pretty rad. Very comfortable and I haven't even broken them in yet. I've only put a few rides on them but I know they will get even better.
These boots do the trick for those long trail rides. Sturdy and comfortable and doesnt take much to break in. Great, sleek look.
oots arrived this morning. Charcoal. It was 26*F at my house this morning. I rode at 2:30 P.M. as most of the trail(s) will have thawed, minimizing frost/ice sections and plenty wet roots and muddy to keep you honest. Admittedly these are my first pair of proper hinged boots. That said, regardless of brand, don't walk, run, get a pair of hinged boots. I'm no expert but do understand flow, touch, and finesse. Point is, when your surfing your bike through the woods, you need your ankles. It's just the truth. These Instinct boot felt like moccasins I about 8 miles of trail. Light, ridged, and plush as the same time. Dang near a religious expirience.
How does the boot look?.....Mad Max would kill you for these boots....then burnout on your Moto laughing. The boots look great. Like a super car from the 80's.
At this point I only have one day in them and i couldn't be more happy with them. Oh, I also got in a pickle with a steep side hill and a new tree fall. There was no getting anywhere easy. Honestly, I can't tell how I felt about the boot at that time...I had to managed a pivot turn(again, no expert here).I didn't fall down, it was muddy and steep. They seemed good, nothing I didn't like.
Lastly, as fitment/size? I'm a Vans shoe 12. These are a 12. Near perfect. I used a lightly thinner footbed rather than what came in it and they're perfect. Stoked.
Hope this helps....I'll be buying a backup pair asap. Hope they hold up! Look like they should....

Question answered by MotoSportExpertUser's contributor status: Expert MotoSport StaffQuestion answered Over 3 years agoAnswer: A: The Instinct Off-road is not technically "waterproof" but it helps with different weather surprises. It will keep your feet dry for a while but water can find its way in. Usually at the top.
Also offers a heavier duty sole with better traction.
