really quick question

hey,
im buying new bindings and I am a new boarder and wanted to clarify before I went through with it.

When it refers to the sizes, such as medium (5-8), that refers to your shoe size?

It refers to your boot size, which may be different than your shoe size. A suggestion, buy your boots first, then buy bindings to fit your boots. Not vice versa.

it refers to boot size

Definately get boots first before the bindings....i dont know how other company are, but burton created a thing called shrink technology on their boots which noticeably decreases the bulkiness of their shoes. so if u were to buy a LG binding, it may go well with other boots, but if u buy burton boots with that shrinkage, then the same bindings may be too big

Bottom line, if u already own boots, then take it with you to the store and make sure it sits snug in whatver bindings u buy

Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless
