Burton Custom or Custom Wide? (5'9", ~155 lbs, boots 11)


I'm looking for a good allround board and think the Burton Custom suits me well (rode it once and liked it).

Now I'm just not sure what size would be best for me.
I'm 5'9" tall, ~155 lbs, boots size 11.

I think it should be either one of those (name/length/waist)
Custom / 156cm / 247mm
Custom Wide / 157cm / 258mm

Now I'm not sure whether I need a wide board or not. Some people say with boots size 11 I should definitely go wide, others say it's not necessary. With size 11 I seem to be in the middle. What would you recommend?

Another idea was the Custom V-Rocker / 156cm / 253mm which is a bit wider already. Although this will be my first own board and I don't think I wanna go for a rocker yet.

Thanks a lot!
