Default Binding size if you are right at the top/bottom of the scale

Question:

Is it better to buy an x-large binding or a large binding if you wear a 10.5 boot and the binding if large goes from 8 - 10.5 and the xl goes from 10.5 - 13.

Oh and the feet are not getting any bigger...

Just wondering if it matters

What brand of boots and what brand of bindings are you talking about, because every manufacturer has different sizings.

.

I'm not... It's a general question. For example if I was buying brand x boots that go with brand x binding .... would it impact board performance at all depending on what size binding I chose.

Its not something that can be answered generally.

I have vans 10.5 size boots. I have medium burton bindings that fit them really well. I also have rome XL bindings that are a good fit for my boots as well. I used to own a couple of pairs of ride bindings and they were a good fit with the 9-11 size bindings.

All boots have different external sizes relative to their size. Vans for example are generally quite bulky for each boot size, whereas some of the ride and 32 boots are a much thinner profile.

The only way to size correctly is to put boots in bindings and check the fit.

So if the specific boot fits into both the specific bindings (i.e., the same 10.5 K2 boot fits into a K2 large and XL binding) - what then?

You go with the one that has the best fit.

I can't remember what the specifics were for K2 boots in K2 bindings that are right on the edge.

Ah, Large is 8-11.
