Thumbs up good bindings with k2 maysis boots?

i just purchased some k2 maysis boots. does anyone have any suggestions for a sturdy set of all-mountain bindings to strap these into?

K2 Formulas are a very nice mid priced do everything binding. Still one of my favourite bindings that I recommend to almost everyone.

No, I use celsius boots.

The boot and binding combination honestly doesn't matter. You don't have to worry about trying to match a particular binding with a particular boot, as long as you get the right sized binding for your boot size you'll be fine.

I just got Maysis as well.
If living room testing means anything: I've tried them in Flow M9 SE's from 2012, Flow NX2-AT from 2013 and Ride Alpha's from 2011.
They all fit fine.

EDIT: yeah, what jed said, they're not unusual boots

Shadow fit is just marketing speak for 'fits boots well just like every other binding out there'. Stop buying into ridiculous marketing sales copy.

There are far more important factors in picking your binding, such as flex and feel and what type of binding you prefer.

nope. i just fit some yesterday, and i demoed the quantums last winter. it does work. not all heels are the same, so tthe salomon shadow fit fixes that. im pretty sure your saying that because you dont know.

Is the heel of the boot touching the binding? Check.
Is your boot being held to your binding by straps? Check.

You don't need shadow fit. Please stop making ridiculous posts, it hurts my brain.

thanks to all for the feedback. the reason im looking for suggestions is that my last set of boots and bindings were the first ones i had ever purchased. not really knowing what to feel for in a boot/binding i bought an expensive set that got real uncomfortable in a hurry. and my heel was lifting like crazy after the boots were broken in. so yeah, just wanted to make sure there wasn't a trick to finding the right combo between boots and bindings. this helps though.
