Optimal binding size question
How important is it to have a tight fit between boot and binding. I wear a size 11 boot, and bought a pair of '13 Restricted Malavitas . The guy at the store was adamant that I needed a large size binding, and being the idiot that I am, didn't bring in my boots to test them out and just took his advice. But after reading a few threads on the topic, it seems that maybe I should have opted for a medium.
When I'm strapped in and riding, I don't notice any movement and it feels secure, but there is some room between the side of the sole and the side wall of the binding (maybe 0.5 - 1.0 cm).
Am I over thinking this, or should I try to get a medium?
