The biggest thing you need to worry about is whether the ladders/ratchets will buckle properly. If you get a binding that is too small, you might not be able to adjust your straps enough to fit, and it will be a pain in the ass to strap in every time. A friend of mine has size 14 boots and has a really hard time getting strapped in because the ladders just aren't long enough.

Conversely, if you get a binding that is too big, even if you make all the adjustments you might find that you're having to really crank it all the way to the last notch in order to be tight enough - or even this might not be tight enough.

Obviously either of these situations is less than ideal; you'd like to have some play on your straps and adjustments instead of being totally maxed out on everything.

also, with a size 9 especially if it is a compact boot I would probably recommend the medium, I think the large will just be too big.

Try the medium first, and see how the boot fits. My guess is that it will be OK with maybe some minor tweaking on the straps.
