Best bindings for Burton Social 2013????

Hi

I just bought the Burton Social and am struggling to find the best bindings.

I've narrowed it down to the Womens Burton Stiletto.

Any other suggestions welcome???

Lucy

Stilettos are a good binding for low price. If you have the budget I'd consider something higher up in the burton line.

What would you suggest?
The only reason they were an option was I saw the same board online and they were the suggested bindings.

I would say that if you can afford it, you should check out the Lexa's or the Escapade's. Can't go wrong with either of those. And both will perform much better than the stilettos. But if you are trying to save money, there is nothing wrong with the stilettos either.

Great thanks.
I was looking at the Lexa's myself. Didn't realise the stiletto's were the cheaper.
Happy to spend a bit more to get a better ride.
Thanks

Agree with the above. My wife has lexas and stiletto, you can certainly see and feel the quality difference. She was happy with the stilettos for 2 years but Lexas are better quality.

Cheapest binding by burton. I would avoid it, minimum stilettos. Buy used instead if budget an issue. Has toe strap instead of toe cap.

Think Lexa it is. No point in spending less and the paying for it later.
Thanks for all your advice.
