Default Large or Medium

Hi - I recently received the Malavita EST's in large, I ordered Large since I have a 11 boot (thirtytwo focus boa). The heal strap is perfectly centered, however, the toe cap might be to large. In order to get that toe cap centered on my toe, I had to move to the last setting (closest to the base plate) and I am almost maxing out on the ratchet, only a few teeth left (less than an inch to the base plate). Would I be better off with a medium binding? Mediums says its for 8-11. Thanks!

It depends if your foot is still growing. If it is i would stick it out for a another year till your foot grows. If it is not growing anymore i would get the medium but you would be on the largest setting for everything.

My foot will not be growing anymore. That's the dilemma I am in, go with a large and have the toe cap be to small or go with the medium and most-likely be on the last settings.

I always find you should go with the smallest bindings possible. They'll fit snug and be more responsive. I've bought bindings that I was in the lower end of the size spectrum and they just felt sloppy.
