Help picking out bindings

Im looking to upgrade my current bindings with something all-mountain freestyle-like. I am pretty much intermediate and I am starting to make my way to the park. I am female, 5'4'', 120lbs with SUPER tiny 4.5 sized feet. I ride a never summer pandora 143. im not looking to spend a fortune and probably just hitting up the 2011 markdowns

any suggestions?

Most women's bindings fit that description. What are you riding with now?

I currently have a pair of k2 virtues, I ended up finding some 2021 Rome Madison's for $120, hopefully those will be good?

Why do you want to "upgrade" the Virtues? They are all-mountain freestyle bindings and already somewhat high end. And they won't feel much different than the Madisons. I have owned both and found the Madisons to look nicer, with better padding. They are heavier, however. They are also very wide and big (even the smallest size) - almost too big for our small boots.

As an alternative, check out the K2 Agogo or the Union Trilogy.

while I am comfortable with the virtues, I have had a few problems with the buckle getting stuck and them being almost too small for my boots, I have the straps adjusted to the furthest setting and they pinch the top of my foot sometimes. idk maybe I'm just complaining about little things, they still work but I want to try something new nd possibly more comfortable?

Ah yes. Makes sense. Go for the Madisons then.
