Help for Sizing Union Atlas

Hey Everyone, i just bought a pair of Union Atlas bindings in L/XL because i got a decent deal on them and they were the last pair. I wear a size 9.5 boot and the bindings says 9.5-14 L/XL do you guys think i should return it? or do you think 9.5 should work fine? i think it may be little bit too big

Cliff notes: 9.5 nike boot ZF1 in a L/XL union atlas, nay or yay?

Don't get a L/XL, the baseplate is very large and will hang off your board when you center your boot. I ride a 10 and it fits perfectly into a M/L.

P.S. If I maxed out all the adjustments on the M/L it could easily accomodate a size 11.

yeah the thing is i bought them already thinking it would be fine to ride, but now i am second guessing myself because of the size i dont want to return because the store is very far from my place. is the l/xl baseplate that much larger then the m/l?

Yeah it's pretty big. The problem will be when you center the boot. You'll have to turn the disks sideways and push the baseplate all the way out off the toe edge. I took my board and boots to a shop to make sure of the fit. At the time the nearest Union dealer was 1h 45min away but it was def worth it.
