well first off all, make sure the heel and toe are evenly distributed between both sides, and in most cases you can actually center it so more heel hangs off, depending on what kinda riding you'll be doing. on my new setup i just got, my heels hanging off a little more than my toe on my agent + 290's. just as in my case (since i haven't takin my board on the face yet) you'll have to ride with the setup and see how it affects you, it might, it might not. but just my opinion but i feel as if you can get away with more heel overhang than toe especially when carving.

That is a ton of overhang.

Options:

1. Wide board
2. Bindings that have higher toe&heel ramps
3. Risers

Toe drag should be within .5 to .75 inches of the board. IT seems like you have enough lift on your bindings so you might never be a victim of toe drag. Also depends on what kind of riding you do. If you're an experienced rider taking DEEP toe side carves and cuts, then you will feel your toe skipping across the plain. I've seen much worse, and I used to ride with a 2 inch overhand with low low low low bindings. I wouldnt worry about your drag too much.

You look like you will make it unless you hit some steeps. Have you ever seen foot reduction boots? I have size nines but they sit in my bindings like size 8's or 8.5's, somewhere around there. I know for a fact Burton and Salomon have them idk about other companies.

This is another myth that I always see.) 0.5 inches. 2 inches. 1.45 inches. It belongs with the chin&nose sizing method.

This awesome photoshop job is self-explanatory:

Dude, sorry...but I have no idea what that image is explaining. Are the black bars on the bottom where overhang exists ? Thanks

EDIT.
Nevermind. I see it now, its as if you were looking at the side of the boot.

That is a lot of overhang...size 12 boots need a wider board and bigger bindings. I wouldnt ride like that. Before you buys stuff you need to figure out what you need.
