Default Sizing for SPI's

I have decided on getting Ride Spi's but dont know what size to get. so hopefully some one with experience can help me to get the right size since i dont have access to any stores to try them out.

I have K2 Thraxis boots in a size 11 Which puts me at the L and XL for the SPI's

I will post up some measurements of the bottom of my boot later tonight if that will help

Take a look at my comments on SPi sizing in this thread:

If you can't actually check out the boot in the bindings, probably go with the L.

If your boots are 11 go with larges. I wear size 12 boots and have L/XL spi they will do fine for you

K2 isn't a huge profile boot like 32/Vans, but it still might be pushing it. Personally I would deal with shorter reaching straps and get a L to save weight and make sure it's a snug fit.

I think that when a boot is on the cusp between two binding sizes, there are always two questions: (1) Will it fit? and (2) What kind of fit do you prefer? If you don't know what you prefer, go with the smaller option and just max it out as needed. Personally, I've decided that I don't like the "crammed in the chassis" approach, even though I like tight straps.

I used to have Ride Spi's a few years back. I too was on the borderline of L/XL. I went with the XL, because the Larges I bought maxed out the strap adjustment for my boots. I returned them and got the XL's and cranked them down pretty tight. I was happy with my choice of size and binding! Loved the SPI's
