I had bought the Burton Stilletos, but after reading a few negative things about them, I returned them and shopped around some more.
I ended up with men's bindings (although the website says unisex): Flux TT30's.
There is a gap between the sides of my boots on the sidewalls of the bindings... maybe half a cm on each side. But even lightly cranked down my boot doesn't budge.
These bindings are *way* stiffer than the Burton Stilletos. I'm afraid they might be too stiff, but I wanted something responsive (I want the board to flex, not the binding) so I went with these.
The highback is also taller.
Incidentally, in the store I also tried on a range of Union bindings. Those were awesome... the highback is stiff bending back, but really soft going side to side (so you can lean forward and back along the length of the board, and it will flex with your legs). Sadly, they were pretty expensive.
I'm going to try them out soon, hopefully it goes well.
