Default Question on boot overhang

170 lbs
5.11"
size 12 burton boot
bent metal restraint bindings
Lib 161 dark series

New board is thinner than my previous nitro, and my boots are extending substantially more over heal and toe. Adjusted the bindings and looks like about 1.25 inch heel overhang and 2.25 toe overhang.

Have toe risers.

What do you guys think?

Also with the toe risers boots sit about 1.25 inch off the board.

Get a wide board, at least 265mm at the waist, Salomon boots are among the thinnest profile on the market, and they fit a whole 1/2 size big, so 12 is actually 11.5, and/or put some lean on your bindings. I personally don't believe in risers, the lower center of gravity the better.

Woops did not mean risers meant toe ramps

You'll be fine if you can center the boots more.
