Completely new in Fox’s boot lineup and significantly different from any other boot out there, the Fox Racing 180 Boots deliver race-proven features inside a unique, new design. Built off the success of Fox’s premium Instinct boot, the 180 borrows several premium features and works them into a more affordably priced boot.
Features taken from the Instinct include two ball-and-socket buckles that pull the ankle down into the heel of the boot, a very large, very flat medial side of the boot that greatly increases grip against the bike, and step-in comfort that Fox puts into their boots to make them some of the most comfortable on the market.
The 180’s similarities end there as the rest of boot is so unique. The upper closure steers away from the typical velcro/buckle closure and uses an adjustable silicone strap instead. This allows the upper to have a secure closure that fits nearly any calf size or knee brace and an engineered amount of slip so the closure can move with you as your leg and ankle flex.
The 180 also features a floating cuff system at the ankle right behind the top buckle. This system gives the top buckle the perfect placement for a secure fit, but it also works with molded TPU pieces on the rear of the boot to act as a lockout that prevents over-extension and potential ankle injury. The result of these innovations is a mid-tier boot with great protection, excellent comfort, and next-gen features that many premium boots don’t even offer.
