What size Rome 390 Boss?

I have a pair of Burton Hails in size 9.5 and wondering what size 390 will suit it since the sizes overlap S/M (up to 9.5) and L/XL (starting 9.5).

Would the L/XL be too bulky?

Height:5'7" Weight: 165lbs

Boards: Never Summer SL 154, Burton X8V 151.5
Bindings: Union Force SL, Burton Malavita Reflex
Boots: Salomon Dialogue

are your boots low profile? than go with the mediums. If your boots are bulky get the large. I personally would get the medium regardless. Less bulk/weight and it'll be snug so no ice buildup.

How can I find out whether my boots are low profile or not? I know they're '08 Burton Hails in 9.5.

They look like these http://www.extremeoutdoorsupply.com/...ots-mens-1.jpg

Couldn;t tell you because i haven;t seen them in person. Are they bulkier or fatter than most boots? if so get the mediums.

edit: I mean large haha

I asked a guy at dogfunk and they said to get the mediums because the large would be a bit loose.

Are the binding adjusted properly? Cause I have 10.5 32 lashed an l/xl work great just needed to play with em a bit. I no that our boots are different but I can still make em smaller by a lot!

I have DC Scouts in size 10 and 390 bosses in S/M. They barely fit with, the heels of my boots are flush with the heel loop and the toe strap is nearly maxed out. I tried the L/XLs on in store and the toe strap was too big. It doesn't seem like there is a size of 90 boss that is best for boots 9.5 to 10.5. Both sizes barely fit.
