UNION INHOUSE, that's cool! Great customer care! I'll definitely ask them.

Also I want to wait for board and try it all together.

Not to jack the thread or anything, but I have a similar question. I'm looking to get a new pair of Union Atlas's as well. I'm a size 10.5 for normal shoes. I also believe my snowboard boots are between 10 and 11. However, after looking into it, I've seen people bring up that DC's(which are what I have) have wider boots than most. Is this true? Should I go for the M/L or the L/XL?
Thanks in advance

The thing is, it's not the straps/heel cup, but the footbed/gas pedal that's the issue.

I've been on the white, glow-in-the-dark Atlases since they came out.

M/L and Van's V-66 sive 10.5 boots.

They work, but the footbed on these doesn't touch the board, it floats/slides on top of the binding base. If you have them out on the 3'rd position, it's hanging way out in air with a 1/2 gap until your board edge. It's just hanging there in space with daylight underneath you toes.

Personally, the L/XL would be the way to go. You might get a little less mass on the M/L, but mechanically it's robbing you of a lot of energy to be on your toe edge.

Union's footbeds on the contacts had less plastic on the base, and more on the footbed making contact with your board deck.

Atlas footbeds also have pretty nil padding underfoot.

Also, why not get the t.rice/asadachi ?
