rome 390 sizing

hey. im about to buy a 151 NS evo r and am looking to put some new rome 390s on it and was just wondering wat size bindings i should get. at the moment i have some older salomon boots that are a size 9.5 and i have a farely narrow foot so will probably be purchasing another pair of salomons as i found they fit me well. i was just wondering because my foot size lies in between the 2 different sizes (S/M = US Men's 4 - 9.5, L/XL = US Men's 9 - 14). should i get the S/M and risk the binding being to small or should i go the L/XL and risk the bindings being too large. i live in australia and the only local boardshop doesnt stock rome bindings so i cant check.
thanks alot.

not entirely sure but if you can i'd go to a shop and try to see how your boots fit. I had the same problem in deciding and I decided the L/XL fit me better. I have salomon dialogues but in the wide model in size 9. Also rome customer service is definitely the best I've experienced so far - ask them.

Seeing as you can't go on and try one out, I suggest also that you contact Rome customer service. Maybe someone on this forum can give you some input about this like him ^^

Definitely get the L/XL. I wear 9.5 Salomon Maoris, and had L/XL 390s, now have L/XL Targas. They fit perfectly.

FWIW, I had a size 9 salomon dialogue wide and it didn't fit in a s/m so I use l/xl. It also depends on which salomons you choose because the f-boots have a smaller footprint due to the fused liner so you could probably get away with a s/m

If you're between two sizes, I'd go bigger. You can ratchet them down pretty far, but if you get ones that are too small, you might not fit at all.

Personally, I ride Rome Arsenals and I wear a 10.5 boot. They seem like they would be able to fit a 9.5 pretty easily and I'm guessing Rome's binding are all sized similarly.

Late to the show, but L/XL is what you should get. I ride S/M Targas in a size 9 Salomon boot and the ladders just barely come together.

You'll just need to adjust the backplate and/or heelcup to the forward-most position.
