Union Rosa sizing
 
Hi, my gf wants to get a pair of union bindings. She is size 5.5 US ladies (23cm). We are unsure whether to get the size small or medium as size small is 3-6 US and medium is 5.5-9 US. Her boots are a pair of nitro crowns.

Do those boots have a smaller print than most boots?

I'd say get the larger size if you're unsure. I had to sell a pair of bindings last season because I didn't buy the larger size.

Ummm ... The sizing chart really doesn't help, since her boot is a 5.5. According to the Union Sizing chart either a small or medium binding would fit her boots.

I've found almost all binding manufacturers sizing charts to be a complete waste of time for those who have boot sizes on the border of the binding sizes. They don't take into account the actual footprint of a boot, which can differ considerably from boot to boot. I'm not sure what a practical solution to this may be, but is certainly not consumer-friendly.

Not helpful. I snowboard so it's safe to assume i am under 90 yo and can use a computer. I came here to ask what people's opinion was in terms of borderline sizes. I don't need to be referred to a size chart by a company rep.

Thank you to the other people who replied. I ride the union atlas, and was about to introduce the brand to my gf, however the reply by union has put me off. If I wanted that kind of comment I would have gone to a shop in a burton hoodie and been treated like a gaper there instead.

Jesus, woke up on the wrong side of the bed much?

Get the larger size just to be safe, and adjust the binding to fit her boot.

Sorry not /thread

No. Don't do that. That's like telling someone to wear thick socks if a pair of boots is too big. I wear a size of boot, that, fits a medium and a large version of a particular binding. Fortunately, a local shop had a large binding and when I put my boot in that supposedly fit the large binding, my boot did not fit. The binding was way too big for a boot size that supposedly fit.

Ya, and I've fit numerous people into bindings this past year where the boot couldn't even get into the back of the binding because the boot was too big to fit securely into the heel cup. So yes, if you cannot physically try them on, your best bet is to go for the larger size, especially if you are right on the fence with sizes. There's a greater probability that you won't fit into the smaller size, than the bigger size.

I agree with you mate.

Union webguy, you really weren't much help. OzSno has clearly already looked at the sizing chart before you sent him the link.

Anyway... Heed the advice others have given, size up instead of sizing down.
