Default Burton Cartel w/ Salomon Savage question

Hey guys... I've been lurking on this forum for quite some time. I've read up on the fit issues with Cartels - especially on here. Anyway...

I have a pair of size 11 Salomon Savage boots from 2011, the red brick colored ones. I'm looking to take advantage of the cheap prices on last year's gear, and I want to order Cartels soon since the stock is still good.

Will medium Cartels fit my boots, or should I go large? I'm looking for the best overall fit, I rode Union Force sz L last year and they seemed bulky. Maybe a sizing issue?

Looking for any input/advice. Thanks guys!

There's not a brand anywhere that you should be wearing a medium binding with a size 11 boot.

That seems absolutely wrong. For instance, for Burton bindings medium size will be perfectly fine with size 11 boots that have reduced footprint/shrinkage.

I stand partially corrected. Burton boots with reduced footprint boots can accommodate medium bindings because they are one of the few companies who produce a standard Small binding. However if I remember correctly the Savage are not actually reduced footprint and actually have some added sole to them. Only real way to tell 100% is to see the boot in the binding completely expanded out. If they do fit 11 will be on the very max of their sizing.

Go large! I just recently bought a new set of medium Cartel Reflex bindings to go with my size 9.5 Salomon Savage BOA boots. The heel of the boots are a VERY tight fit in the bindings. So I suspect that a size 11 boot wouldn't fit at all (assuming that the 2011 Savage boots had a similar heel design to my 2014 Savages).
