Default Get a wide board? (Smokin' Superpark)

I wear a size 10.5. An annoying boot size that seems to be on the cuff of every damn binding/board size out there.

Anyways, I usually get regular boards, but the waist width for the Smokin' Superpark for a 152 is listed at 24.7. With 10.5 boots I feel comfortable with 25cm wide boards despite the overhang, but am I pushing it too far?

The Smokin' Superpark Wide is listed at 25.5cm waist width so wondering if in this case I should just go with the wide board.

It's only 3mm, but I believe I'd be pushing an inch of overhang on both sides of the boot with the regular board. I've gotten the most comfortable at 12/-12 stance angle, ducking out too much feels too awkward to me.
