Waist width too big for my 8.5 boot?

Hi all

I am looking at the T.Rice 157 C2BTX board. The waist width is 25.8. I wear a size 8.5 boot.
Is the waist width too big for my 2009 8.5 Burton Ion Boots?

Thank you in advance for all your help

most likely yes. what size are your bindings and whats your prefered stance degrees? factor that in too. im a size 11.5 boot with large bindings, the waist width of my board is 25.1 and theres about half a cm from the heel/toe to the board edge. my stance is wide and duck footed tho. how much do you weight and are you sure about a 157?

you won't have a problem. 8.5 size boots you can ride everything.

true but it will be a little harder to initiate turns with the amount of space between the binding toe/heel and sidewall. kinda like two kids sitting in the middle of a teeter totter as opposed to on the ends. its not a serious issue but theres definitely a better fit out there.

Ya I'd say it's too wide. That would be like someone with a size 10 riding a 27cm waist. A 25.8 is suited better for a size ll-11.5 boot, which I believe Travis Rice is. With an 8.5 it would take way to much effort to initiate each turn. A lot of turns means A LOT of effort.

Thanks guys. The reason why i was asking because the lib tech site says a 8.5 boot is ok and wanted to confirm.
I board backcountry and powder and have only boarded on 157 boards or more.
