Question Bindings to big

When I bought my Ride LX bindings I thought I wore a size 11 boot because that's what I rented and that what I wear in street shoe. The guy at the store said to get the XL bindings to go with the size 11 boots so that's what I got. After going a few time I found that 11 are to big for me and finally went to the store and got a pair of Ride Jacksons size 10. Now my bindings are a bit big for my boot and I am wondering if this will be a problem. I have already adjusted the heel cup forward and there is a little more heel overhang than toe. Next season I might get some rear step in bindings anyway so I though if anything I can turn the base plate on the bindings so that I can adjust them side to side on the board for now.

What shop did you buy the bindings from? Go back there and slap that guy up side the head with those XL bindings. Even with an 11, he should've recommended a L.

Now ya know why everyone suggests buying boots THEN bindings. You had to learn that one the hard way.

Haha yea learning some things the hard way but now I know. I did have boots that I thought fit but now after boarding with boots too big then getting the right size I really know how they are supposed to feel. I got them at Sport Chalet and to the guys credit the bindings did work fine with the 11 and they do work with 10 its just not perfect. I used them with 10s for half a day and they worked fine so I figure lesson learn and it's not a total loss. Do you guys think I should turn the base plates so I can center the boots on the board? It's not a big difference in overhang but I would think you would want the boot as close to the center as possible. Thanks for the help

Arn't the Bindin sizes usually running L: -10.5 , XL: 10.5-.....
Can't remember the missing digits but preety sure thats the standard for union , flux , ride bluh.

My friend was mislead into buying xl unions and getting size 10 hails (which are a preety wide boot) - had too much freeplay , couldn't take em back blah and way , we just shifted the heel cup in a little and shortend all the straps and it was sweet. You can eliminate a lot of side to side movement if you run the straps centered and short as the strap will lock in most of the boot not so much the binding sidewalls / baseplate

Bindings sizes differ from each company of those you listed Flux does not even have XL bindings and the large are size 10-12. Ride LX bindings are for size 8-11 for large. Some companies even have different sizing for different models in there line.

Will be an issue had same issue arise last year when I bought new boots last year( new boots had shrinkage tech and had to much play in the binding for my liking )

Think you are talking about the mounting disk if so you can use it either way just try to get your bindings centered on the board as much as possible.

The season is almost upon us!!!!

Yea sorry I was talking about the mounting disk. Yea I think it will be fine if I center the boots that way and I don't think free play is a problem. I'm going to try calling sport chalet and see if they have a large and if they will exchange them even though its past the 30 day. Thanks for all the help!
