Looks like it will be blown out and loose in 2 months. Guess we'll find out soon enough.

fox instinct with a shift logo

No hinge? No, thanks. And they're ugly, unless Shift does something similar to Instincts I'll stick to what I have.
I'm guessing it's an entry level boot?

Personally, I prefer the simplicity of Tech 10's.

Vital Mx is not safe...

I think its a perfect boot for its intended purchaser.

I do not think they are trying to sell these boots to the same guys wearing Tech 10's, SG12, SIDI2/3, etc.

Compared to Oneal Elements or a low end Fly boot this looks decent and will do the job.

Doubling the price isn't really a fair comparison. That boot is in the 199-249 category.

Listening to Kris Keefer's "Keefer Tested" pod cast on boots the other day, I was shocked he said the boots are great (instinct) but only lasted him a few months.

In my opinion you have remember that keefer rides probably 10 times more than the average guy. I have two pairs of Instincts and can see how the soles wear faster than some other boots. I can only imagine how they'd do with raptor and similar footpegs. I've had my oldest set of Instincts for over 2 years and they're still in great shape. I'm thinking about trying the SG12 for my next boot just to see how I like them but the Instinct is a hell of a good boot. The grip you get with then on the bike is second to none.

Back on topic, those Shift boots are hideous.

First impression? Not good.

I think they're dope. Doesn't look like they provide much support (kinda remind me of the Alpinestars Vector boots) but I like the look!

Wouldn't put the ex's foot in it.. Purely been banged out to tie the colour way together for the new gear.

Happily stick with my SG12's..

Did Shift and fox merge? I remember seeing CR22 running both companies? How does that happen?
