Question on binding size, do i need bigger?

Ok, just picked up a used board. It has burton custom bindings on it. On the toe cap it has a M stamped in it. So im guessing its for medium bindings. Now i believe it is recommend for size 10+ to use L bindings. I wear a 13. My boot fits in the binding, just a little snug to get in around the heel area. Straps fit as well.A little snug on the toe caps but it will work. I believe the guy i bought it from wore a size 12 boot. Should I sell these and get a large binding? or just use them. Something im missing? Thanks

Personally, I'd get rid of the M and find a L/XL. I have a size 13, and while I can technically cram my foot into some M size bindings, I would rather not. It's not comfortable to ride that way. Your feet will thank you for getting the appropriate size.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I had some Buron Missions in M, and size 10.5 boots, and the bindings were too small. I found the biggest problem was with the straps. There wasn't enough slack to be able to buckle in easily.

Now I have Romes in L and it's way better.

ok, thanks guys. Thats what i was thinking. I have a large pair of bindings on my other board. But they are a cheap crap brand. Well now to go on the hunt for new bindings.
