I'm not 100% sure but I would guess you would need to go up. Try to find a way to see though, go to a local shop and get some similar boots and look at their medium bindings.

I have medium Burton Mission EST's and size 9.5 burton hail's and seem like there's room to spare but maybe up to 10.5, not sure about 11.5...

Yo! Right, the Burton sizing is about 8 - 11 for a medium binding, so you might just be able to squeeze those hoofs into them (it might take some cramming though) and if not, then your going to be wanting larges. You may also want to look for a boot that has some kind of reduced foot print technology in it so that the Bindings might last you a little longer.

My suggestion would be to take your bindings in with you when you do decide to fork out/pick up your boots and check them then to see if the boot is gonna fit. Thats the only way your gonna know.

have you had your foot measured? if not, you really need to do this to figure out how long your feet are

Please measure your foot using this method:

Kick your heel (barefoot please, no socks) back against a wall. Mark the floor exactly at the tip of your toe (the one that sticks out furthest - which toe this is will vary by rider). Measure from the mark on the floor to the wall. That is your foot length and is the only measurement that you will want to use. Measure in centimeters if possible, but if not, take inches and multiply by 2.54 (example: an 11.25 inch foot x 2.54 = 28.57 centimeters).

You will want Larges. The mediums will give you gobs of toe overhang over the toe ramp compared to your heels.
