Mimic the carve and see if your toe/heel touches the ground before you even fully engage.

Just for reference, my buddy David Z rode my 157 Proto with his size 11 32 TM 2 boots which are pretty bulky. He had 0 issues on it and he rides everything including lots of park.
Agree with that. The overhang does not look too bad - but is your boot centered over the board? Common problem with Burton bindings as you hit the max/min size for the binding, as the heel hoop is not adustable and you have solely rely on the holes in the disk to fine-tune the boot position...
