Yes, that is correct, the Pushers are one piece baseplate. However, the boot was still way too wide and the straps, even packed out, were too short. I had about over 2 inches of ladder showing on both sides and because the binding was so narrow, a lot of that length was parallel with the length of the boot sole. Visually, if you were to look down at it, the straps formed a tight 'U' shape rather than a more mellow 'C'. That extra length killed the lateral support. That, as twin89, points out, was due in part to the heel loop not being able to be moved back, but part of it is also because the binding was too narrow for a size 9.5 ZF1.
Strangely enough, the toe ramps weren't overly short, they came up about right in length.
If you are buying online and they have a decent return policy, my suggestion is to buy both and send back the one that doesn't fit. Talk to a CS rep, I know you could do this at dogfunk/backcountry and evo for sure. Not sure about other shops.
