Guy using girl bindings?

I'm a guy 5'7 140 pounds. I was wondering if I could use Rome Madison Bindings (Women bindings) with my Rome Crail. They fit my northwave boots but would using it hurt my riding? Whats the difference between girls and guy bindings? Thanks.

The binding is going to be built proportionately smaller for women's boots, so the highback, straps and so on and so forth will be smaller. If you've got size 5 mens boots, go for it. But if you've got "averaged" size feet, get the 390's.

womens calves are lower than mens are

I wouldn't worry too terribly much. If it ends up bothering you go with the 390s or Arsenals, but I don't see what the big deal is...
