The footprint on the board after the special boots all depends on what boot size you actually wear, and until you figure that out its kinda hard to tell what will happen.

If you get down to a size 11 footprint on the board you might only have a little overhang which isn't such a bad thing because a little can help put pressure on the edges.

And as far as risers go, if you haven't been snowboarding for long it will probably be easier to get used to them compared to someone who has been riding for a long time and switches to them. I don't know how much risers run but I'd say it's worth a try if you need some, considering the amount of money you saved on the whole package.
