Default Should I go with an XL Bindings?

I got a 2008 Ride RX bindings size Large and a K2 Maysis Boot size 10.5. Here are some pictures of my setup.

1) Side of bindings press against side of boot on both sides. The boot does not "fall" into place and has to be forced into position

2) Highback connector prevents boot from moving all the way back without force

3) Overall size of front foot. 21 degree, 21" stance width, Reference setback

4) Toe strap presses firmly against the boot on both sides.

Is this ok? Any help appreciated.

I've been riding 10.5 32 Focus Boas this year in 2011 Ride SPI in XL if that helps at all.

can't tell very well from this picture but your highback might need a bit more forward lean, if most of it is in contact with your boot then good to go. It'll push the whole thing a bit more forward too. Also your toe-strap is one of those hybrid/over your toes ones, not straight on top.
as long as the base of your boot is evenly contacting the base of your binding it should be fine, although are you sure that is a 10.5? usually size L bindings are good up to like a 12 boot.

It has full contact with the boot right up to the end. But it has to be jammed in because of pressure from all around the binding

It'll push the whole thing a bit more forward too.
Really? I would figure if anything i'd need to push it back a tiny notch. Perhaps its the mount angle. The big toe has significant overhang while the little toe has none.

Also your toe-strap is one of those hybrid/over your toes ones, not straight on top.
I thought hybrid meant in front OR over top (and not in between)

This is the case but again it has to be jammed in. Very hard to do unless I am wearing the boots in which case I still have to jam in my heel.

although are you sure that is a 10.5? usually size L bindings are good up to like a 12 boot.
Yes the boot is 10.5 for sure. Bindings are 2008 Ride RX size Large. I believe it might just be a larger footprint boot. I also have an older Ride Deuce boots size 10 which is much smaller than the half size would suggest. Maybe older size Large bindings only went up to 11.
I'm going to get a new pair of bindings anyways but i'm just trying to see which size I should get. Current boots have seen only 8 days on the mountain.

Attached are some pics of abrasion. I would say a little abrasion/pressure is expected around the ankle straps but i'm seeing it in other places. Attached are two examples.

5) Pressure caused by the highback connection point. Causes a sharp indentation into the boot. This is the reason why my boot needs to be jammed into the heelcup to fit properly

6) Bracket shows pressure from the side of the binding. Arrow shoes abrasion from the highback connector.

Again, if this is all ok then i'll just buy another Size L bindings but if not then i'll jump to the XL because of my boot's larger footprint.
