i was going to get that in the spring but settled on something else. this is a bitchin setup but will be iffy in the park. make sure you look into getting a custom wide. i say go for it!

11 doesn't need a wide. The bindings lift of the boots enough so you won't have to worry about toe drag.

That is a great setup! Depending on your binding angles, you might want to consider the wide version.
I ride on a Custom 3D 156 with Missions on the pipe ,a Custom ICS 158 with Triad EST ,and a 158 Operator/Missions
for everything else .

I have a custom ics 158 and size 10.5 boots and have no drama with toe drag. I wouldn't want my boots to be any bigger tho.

You could probably get away with it but it will depend heavily on your boots.

Half of a boot size can be significant when needing to switch over to a wide board though. If you can get to a shop, I would recommend looking to see how your boots are going to set.

It will all depend on which boot you have and your riding angles. Best way to be sure is to possibly try your setup
at a local retailler.Really hard to give you a definite answer through a email if toe drag would be an issue .
Sort of the same situation as if you wore a size 10 boot ,would you use a med or large burton binding .
As far as your other question if the Custom would be good for the park is a resounding Yes !
The Custom is the most widely used board in burton's lineup .It's a great all purpose board .

Good luck
