New guy first bindings/boots, have board
 
So this is my second season boarding and my first owning a board, I bought a 2012 gnu carbon credit and could really use some help deciding which bindings/boots to get for it.

A few questions I have though, will the bindings be usable on future boards and whatever bindings I get, are there boots that may or may not fit into the bindings just as there are bindings that may not be made for a specific board?

Also my shoe/boot size is 9.5 or 10 depending on brand and right now I am going to be doing a little bit of everything on the mountain.

I have the GNU Carbon Credit 2013 with Flow M11 bindings. This setup is my first season setup and I really like it. The rear-entry from the binding are very easy to get used to and they super fast. All you have to do is slide in the boot and buckle up the lever and way you go.

You might need a large size bindings on those boots size?

Any bindings that fit that board will work on any other board except Burton boards with the channel system. These boards will require either a conversion disk or Burton EST bindings. Bindings are pretty adjustable so you should have no problem fitting different boots into them as long on the sizes are pretty similar.

hm ok those m11 bindings seem expensive would it make a big difference if I got cheaper ones? I'm trying to keep cost down and shopping deals from last season, and I'm afraid to go back into my local ski shop because I dont want them to hook me into buying shitty bindings / boots. They do have good sales going on there right now so I want to maybe order a pair of bindings that I know is good and then try on and purchase some boots at the shop. Can anyone point me to a deal on good bindings for the carbon credit?

Don't be scared. What brands does your shop carry?

ride, k2, and burton as far as bindings

ride, k2, burton, thirtytwo, salomon, rossignol for boots

Those are all good companies. If you get Burton bindings, make sure they come with universal mounting disks so you can fit them on your board. Ride makes some really nice bindings. K2 has some good ones too although I have used them personally. Check out the Cartels or Malavitas from Burton and then comparable models from Ride and K2.

For boots its all about fit and comfort, but I'd start with the thirtytwo boots since I've heard some really good things about them. Ride, Burton, and K2 will probably be the next best, but Salomon and Rossignol make decent stuff too.
