I wear a 10.5 Ruler, That has 'Shrinkage' so a 9.5 or 10.0 footprint? I have the gas pedal all the way out and the ball of my foot is still pushing down the lip of the binding just barely though.

I got the Burton Hero board and was considering a wide board instead, something like the hero instead of the hero wide. The waist width seemed to be okay from whatever formula I used with my stance. But I still have a little toe hanging over the board after I pulled the bindings all the way back in the ICS channel. So on top of downsizing the bindings and getting rulers instead of a boot like the K2 Darko, I got the smaller sized bindings that should barely fit.

I have a friend who need bindings but wheres an 11, I might buy a pair of Large Cartels and give him my missions. But I did a lot of research on the missions and they are what I wanted I thought. How do they compare to the Cartels, or are the Cartels just about the same, just a tad more expensive?

Its a good thing you cant feel it, as long as its holding your boot down.
That's more comforting I suppose, as quoted below it supports that I am just picky.

That's the issue, I cannot feel it at all.
