boots right on the edge

Hey all,

Bought some '08 Burton Missions in Large for a great deal and was planning on using my old K2 boots in them that were size 10, but those just broke on me on the hill, so I need new boots. Apparently I'm actually a size 9, so my obvious question is whether or not my new size 9 boots are going to fit in my L Burton bindings. Burton says Medium bindings should fit sizes 8-10, while Large is 10+. So according to Burton, my boots might not fit, and that would be a bummer. What do you guys think?

I've been looking at the Salomon malamutes.

I strapped one of my old size 10 boots in one of these large bindings a few minutes ago and the boot doesn't appear to be swimming in the binding. I'm hoping that the 9's or 9.5's will fit without issue. I'd still appreciate opinions/anecdotes/guesses.

Thanks.

Are you saying youre worried the 9's would be too big? Because Burton bindings tend to run big... I wear 9 mens and my boots fit medium customs easily...large will be no prob maybe a tad on the big side.

I'm a little bit worried the large bindings will be too big for the 9 or 9.5 boots.

That's reassuring. Anybody else have direct experience with this?

I think you're over worrying, they adjust a lot and you'll be fine.

Malamutes are pretty stiff, are you sure that's what you want to go with your soft bindings?

I want stiff everything, but the bindings were super cheap and hard to pass up. I guess time will tell if that was a mistake.
