Lib Tech TRS 159 BTX - Size 12 Boot?!

I am in the market for a new board after holding onto my 8+ year old Forum 157 Wide Series Twin for way too long. I am 6'0 175lbs with a size 12 foot. I am an all mountain rider with about 30% of my time spent in the park.

I tried out my friends Lib Tech TRS 162 BTX and could not believe the performance of this board. I was so in tune with the board while riding which made me realize how much it feels like my Forum is riding me, not me riding it.

Anyways, I want to get the 159 version but I am concerned about my toes or heels dragging since I have a size 12 boot.

Do you think I will be alright? If not, please reccomend other Lib Techs with the BTX technology for me. Also, binding reccomendations would be awesome too.

Alright guys, well I made the purchase and will be getting my set up next week. I paired it with Rome Targas Bindings.

I'll let you know how it works out for me.

Any reccomendations on boots that have a shrunken foot print?
