This is throwing me off because everything I read says shoe size 10 and up should always get a wide board.
"Snowboarders who have a boot size of 10.5 or more are recommended to ride a wide-model board. If you have a boot size that falls between 10.5 and 12, choose a snowboard that features a 26-cm waist width. Upgrade to a 26.5-cm snowboard if your boot size is between a 12 and 13."
It looks like the waist width between the 156 and 157w is 25.0 vs 25.8 cm....is this negligible?
