reduced footprint boots & binding size

I have the Salomon F22 boots that have a smaller footprint than a comparable boot of a similar size. I currently have a size 12 but I am getting new boots and will either be getting Burton or Salomon reduced footprint boots in an 11.5. According to the manufacturers, the boots should have a footprint of at least 1 size smaller.

I have Ride NRC's in XL (11-13). If I get the smaller boots do you think I can fit in Delta's in a size L binding (9-11), or would that be pushing it? Not sure how much that footprint is really reduced.

Smaller footprint does not mean smaller boot. You're fine.

I think i was possibly unclear.

Current Setup:
Salomon F22 size 12 (supposed reduced footprint)
Ride NRC XL

Potential Setup:
Salomon F22 sz 11/11.5 or Burton Ion/SLX size 11.5
Ride Delta L

I know my NRC's will be fine for the smaller boots even if the "footprint" is that of an 10.5.

My real question is can I strap Burton Ion 11.5 onto Ride Delta sz L?

If that is what you were answering, apologies.

No, you were clear, I just read too fast.

Let me re-respond: I've got no clue, they might. You might find the straps work but you can't fit into the heelcup or something... or even the reverse. You'll PROBABLY be OK, but don't quote me or anyone on here without first hand experience on that. My only suggestion is to look up a local dealer and try it out.

If anything find a shop that carries them and gime them a try.

Don't go where the road leads, rather go where this is no road and make a trail.

I agree. I wear 9.5 F22s and wish I had medium bindings. My Ride SPi's are larges. I have a good 1/2" gap on each side of my boot. I don't have any issues, but if I were buying again, I'd go medium. The F22s are VERY low volume. IMO, at least a full size smaller than comparable boots in overall volume.
