Northwave boots and Burton binding sizing question
I am considering a pair of Northwave Legend of size US7.5. I have already had a pair of Burton Diode Reflex binding Medium size. According to Burton, it is good for size 8-11. Do you guys think the 7.5 Legend will fit in the Medium Diode? Burton says their boots have smaller footprints so my thinking is Northwave's 7.5 Legend is about similar footprint to Burton's size 8 boots. Am I right?

I can't try the Legend in person to make sure everything fits. Hence the question.

I'm size 8 in Burton, K2, and Forum boots and I still ride size small Burton bindings.

I'd highly suggest you stick with the size small Burton bindings for your 7.5 Northwaves.

The footprint on my Northwaves is pretty small as well so I wouldn't assume it would be that much bigger than the Burtons.

I'm on mediums using a 7.5 burton boot (had 9's when I bought the bindings but quickly realized they were too big). Everything seems fine, I'm not bottoming out any ratches and the straps are centred over the boots fine. I wouldn't go any smaller than that though...
