Fox Comp 5 Boots

I bought a pair of Fox Comp 5 boots before the race season. I only got maybe 2 or 3 desert races in on them before they started coming apart at the seams. On top of that, I cant keep the bottom buck from coming undone. The bucks are very cheap. It is too bad too, i really liked the feel of them and they required no break in time. I recently found some Moose M1 boots for very cheap and i think they will hold up better even though they take a little bit of break in. All in all im disapointed in the Comp5 boot and hope that Fox rethinks their design.
 
I unfortunately had a pair for a few weeks last year. Though I never had a problem with the buckles, almost every stitch came out of the boot. The sole is extremely weak and flexible, separating at the toe after 2 hours of use. The body of the boot is very flexible offering little to no protection at all. They also let any and all water in, soaking your feet even through the smallest puddle. I've always thought fox was crap, their boots didn't let me down, lol.

Ouch thats not any good to hear at all!
My alpine stars are holding up pretty good, had em for over a year now and they've seen a lotta riding!
And there still surprisingly clean hahaha, keep us posted on how the Moose boots hold up might have to look into those if there cheap and realiable!
 
I have a pair..... so far i've been out in them about 10 times...... since i got em...... they are too wide in the calf area though... :prof: :thinking:
 
I may as well chime in now - my son's are sitting in the box still looking brand new - he wore them once and they don't fit his feet well. Anyone need a size 9?? :smirk:
 
maybe i just got a bad pair the moose m1's are holding up great though and seem to have a good fit. they dont have any of the bells or whistles but they get the job done.
