Even as a Flow fan I'm already tempted to buy a pair of these Romes, it sounds they are well-made and pics on the internet make the 2014 line look pretty badass

The '14's look like they will be an improvement on the already super solid '13's. I may have to get a pair myself if buying some new boots doesn't break me. LoL!

I'll have to take a quick look at the '14s. I own the 2012/2013's and after setting them up(I'm going to adjust them a bit next season), I was very happy with them. I can't speak from experience since my previous two bindings that I've tested were whatever ones came with my rental. I have them on my K2 Raygun. I've ridden them 6 or 7 times and they still look like new.

Edit: Oh, I just remembered one problem I had with these. On steep diamond trails(which I can't quite ride well yet) or if I slip backwards on hard-pack snow/ice, the twist thing that unlocks so you can change the pitch of your high-back would loosen up and be orientated sideways. Didn't happen a lot and I just had to twist it back.

Can any of you help me out with a binding size question for the Rome 390 Boss, perhaps even the rep from Rome on the forum?

I'm looking at Rome 390 Boss bindings for a NeverSummer Evo. I wear a size 9.5 or 10 boot depending upon model/manufacturer. My concern is the Rome 390 Boss in L/XL which covers from size 9 (or 9.5) to 14 would be too large and sloppy for my boots and foot size. I'm also concerned it might be a bit oversized for the board dimensions of the Evo.

I'm also looking at the Mob Boss but I think it may be more park oriented and I do a lot of just free-riding around the groomers.

Any help and clarifications would be appreciated.

Maybe Rome will have a definitive opinion here, but I'd say size down to the m/l. If you have super bulky boots, then maybe the l/xl, but I really think you'll fit the m/l better.

Go with the 390 Boss L/XL. It'll fit on your board fine, and in case the particular brand of boot you end up getting is bulkier than normal you'll be stoked on the added space. You'll just have to minimize all the size adjustments on the heel hoop and ladder straps.

Thanks NWBoarder but everything I'm finding on the Boss 390's is they come in S/M and L/XL. I've not seen an M/L option.

Thanks for the response. I'm looking at Burton boots, most likely the Ion or Imperial. Neither has a particularly large footprint. It sounds like from what you are saying I can bring in the heel hoop/cup and adjust the strap length. What about lateral fit nose to tail?

They should fit your boot nicely at a 9.5 / 10 size. The thing about most boots that claim shrinkage tech is that they are often a little smaller in terms of toe to heel measurement, but often the width of the boot remains the same. Thats where we tend to see problems with fit around the 9.5 mark with larger boots, because people are thinking that the boot is smaller overall, and not just in terms of one measurement.

Personally I rock 8.5 Libertines in L/XL 390's and they fit great.
