Rome 390 Boss Bindings Sizing?

I'm currently wearing an 8.5 Burton Ion boot and was curious what size these suckers would fit into? small/medium or medium/large?


Thanks!

I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.

They will probably be big for the S/M and small for the L/XL. I went from 8.5 Burton Rulers to 10.0 DC Scouts and I have the S/M bosses. They are pretty much maxed out and fit all right. I'd say go with the S/M.

You got size 10 DCs in a S/M Rome binding?!! Wow! I can barely get a size 9 F series boot in a S/M set of Targas.

DC makes tiny boots. Like I said, I was wearing size 8.5 burtons before these and my feet did not grow after getting the burtons. I do have more toe room, but not a lot.

Ask Leo, I think he has a 9.5 Burton boot in a l/xl and could tell you if a 8.5 will work. My guess is you want the s/m.

I just read the other thread where we discussed sizing and it looks like Leo fit a 9.5 Hail into a l/xl.

Hi!

Burton Ions have shrinkage so your size 8.5 has the girth of a 7.5 boot. Length of course is still the same as no amount of tech is going to change your actual foot size

So all signs point to S/M sir. I can't stress this enough, make sure you read the instruction manual thoroughly. There are lots of adjustments that you can do to them.

I convinced Snowjab to fiddle with his Targas more before selling them and he did. Now he loves them. I swear, if everyone having sizing problems with the Bosses lived around me, I'd visit each one and set them up myself

If I can fit my very low profile 9.5 Hails in a L/XL, I'll be darned if I can't fit size 10.5 DC boots in them.

So the moral of my story is, I recommend the S/M. Have fun adjusting that ankle strap first time around. Locking the inner tab into place is a mofo the first time around. I highly suggest you wear some leather gloves or something to help relieve your thumb of some of the abuse haha.

Don't be scurred. If you know how to operate a screwdriver you'll be fine. It'll might take 15 mins or so to set them up, but once you do they are magic.

I used to be a die hard Ride guy, but after one day in my Targas I went and got some some 390 Bosses. I don't see myself ever going away from Rome binders.
