It'll reduce your leverage on heelside turns. As will the soft boots you're looking at. Your buying a park set-up. You can certainly ride it all mountain, it just won't perform as well as a free ride set up.

looked at these bindings for two weeks before deciding to buy them wanted the contact pro's but couldnt bring myself to pay $230 on bindings for my first board. Did my homework on Union but just couldnt find any reviews on these bindings specifically. So I pulled out the debit card and bought the jibs for $98. its only money right.

Return them. Buy boots that fit you. Then buy bindings to fit the boots.

You end up spending more money in the long run doing things your way. You're buying shit you don't really want and seeking affirmation afterward. Not a great way to do things.

What shoe size are you. Check out last year's stuff at Evo's outlet section. Lots of Union's on sale, but mostly L/XL. Recommend the Atlas if you want to freestyle a bit more. Really like the flexy highback.
