It's Just Too Small to Fit on my Feet!

I am a girl with may I say large feet. Women's bindings don't come in my size sometimes. Is it o.k if I buy men's boots? Any difference?

If the shoe fits, wear it.

The only thing that might be different is stiffness in the boots...don't really know because I've never tried on a ladies boot. Otherwise, no issues with buying and wearing a men's boot.

Do you have a sizing problem with boots, with bindings, or both? If women's boots fit, but bindings don't, then I would say stick with women's boots and buy men's bindings.

My girl has size 10 (women feet) and sometimes has a hard time finding boots in her size. She usually gets mens boots, so that wont be a problem. As for mens bindings (that might be a problem) since womens calves are smaller or lower than mens, the highbacks on mens binders could dig in your calf. If you need mens binders, try to look for something with a lower highback. Hope that helped. Shit as you can see in my avatar she's even taller than me..lol

I have had friends who have ridden my boots and have had problems, if you have to buy boots, buy them softer/park flex (girls boots are softer) and lower cut due to the muscles and If you have big but thin feet, look at vans apparently they do the trick, on the other end 32s are widee as footprint.
