A question about bindings thou, are there XL bindings that I would need for my shoe size. Any suggestions for something entry level that is still of good quality.
Are your toes digging into the snow when you turn? Or are the toeside turns just hard on you? I found that the hardest turn to learn when I started as well. The 165 is plenty big, but the width may be what is hurting you. Although, a board that says XL on it must be wide.

XL bindings should work for your boots.
