Are the bindings too small? (pics)

Are these bindings too small?

Shoes size 9W. Bindings goes from 6-10 (W).










Any disadvantages on having short bindings? My old bindings are as long as my shoes at the front. I'm afraid it will feel funny.. hmm..

I think they look good. Did you adjust the toe ramp? Looks like you could extend it under your toe just a bit more.

Yes, the toe ramp is already extended as far as possible.

Does it still look good?

Thanks for quick respond

For what it's worth, my toes extend a bit further past my toe-ramp (which is also extended all the way) than in your picture and it's never been a problem for me. Are the bindings comfortable? That's important.

that looks good. your toe ramps should only extend to the point where your boot starts curving up, never all the way to the tip of the boot. in your photo you could even bring that ramp back 1 notch

Ok. Thanks a lot.

Yeah, they feel comfortable here in the livingroom at least (lol) So hopefully they will do the trick!

This is my first park/freestyle board/bindings. So I'm not quite sure how the bindings are supposed to look/feel.


I think I have to lean the highback a bit forward though, to eliminate the gap between highback and boot? So my boots will come even a bit more forward.

They look and feel good, I think. Seems like they are good of quality. Really glad they weren't too small for my boots.

I'm going to try them this weekend, with my new board, so hopefully I'll like them
