I'd have to agree, my M Cartels fit my size 11 K2's just fine.

That seems to be the consensus here. I could hardly fit my size 11 Nikes in a medium Malavita on max strap settings, let alone adjust the footbed appropriately.

Sorry OP. Judging by the other responses I seem to be wrong here. But for me the medium didn't work at all.

Right.
the first year of Nike boots had very large outsoles and barely fit into bindings. They've since adjusted.

Burton boots in Burton Bindings fit on the high end of our size chart, size for size. Some other brands do too, but that's why our binding size chart says Medium goes from size 8-11 US Mens and Large goes from 10 - 15 US Mens.

That overlap between medium and large is a buffer for the variety of dimensions in the market from other brands.

If you're even in doubt, physically check the fit in a store. Kinda like buying pants.

That explains it. Thanks for clearing it up.

If you had read his post you would have seen that he has Burton boots, so your overgeneralization is invalid here

Got the exact same boot in size 12.

Demo'd the Cartel in large and Malavitas in medium (no large available). The medium were maxed out and barely fitting and not fun.

I'd go large.

Plus if you ever change boots you'll be safe that the bindings will still fit.

FWIW, I had a pair of Medium Burton CO2s and while I could fit my size 10 Ions and 10.5 Driver Xs in, I found there was a fair bit of squeezing going on on the sides of the boot. It was enough to make me switch to larges.

Just food for thought.
