Depends on the boot. I've seen some folks on this forum comment that the m/l dont fit so good for 9.5/10 cos they dont have enough strap length. I wear Northwave boots in a size 9.5 and they are notorious for being a bit wide. But it fits the m/l perfectly - it doesnt max out the straps and the fit is nice and snug with no lateral boot shift. The L/XL woulda been to big for me. Sometimes its preference too. I prefer having my binding size as small as possible for my boot size. But some prefer the extra room so their boot slots in more easily...

i have ride deuces. i think they are a little slim but not super slim. i dont care to have extra room. on unions website they say that they flex differently in each size for the difference in weight of the rider. im only 160 so i think if i get some ill try the m/l because the l/xl would be to stiff. what are yalls thoughts?

i have the forces in M/L. i rode burton boots size 8.5 last year, now i ride DC boots size 10. my foot has not grown at all so it depends a lot on the boot company. the first option would be go to a shop with your boots and see what fits best, but if you cant do that i would go for the M/Ls.

I just got new boots in a size 10 and they fit in the M/L force but they're maxed out all the way. I'll be getting a new pair to accomodate the new boots.
