Some quick help before I make my purchase please =)

Hey, so im just finalising my order for my new setup. I just need some help, my best fit in a boot is a 10.5 but due to lack of stock and just wanting to be safe, im going for an 11. Im just wondering and i believe 10.5 is the border for L - XL bindings. So my question is, in a size 11 boot am i looking at an XL binding?

Board: Rome Agent 2011 - 152cm
Boots: Burton Ruler 2010 size 11
Bindings: Unknown

Thanks Heaps

it depends on the bindings. one company's bindings xl size may be different from another company's xl. if you look at the brands site they usually list the sizes each bindings fit.

So are you ordering this stuff online?

I have a couple of concerns that you might want to consider.

1. The waist width on the 152 Agent is only 249. That could be pretty narrow for size 11 boots. It might be doable, but you might be pushing it and may want to consider a mid-wide or wide board with a waist in the high 250s or low 260s.

2. Have you tried on these boots yet? if you wear size 10.5 shoes, size 11 boots could be way too big. Nothing worse than boots that are too big or just plain don't fit well.

Yehman boot size sounds dodgy. Stock levels meaning you have to go for a bigger size? Sounds like you are setting yourself up for a bad time there man.

like everyone else has said i dont think its a good idea to buy boots online unless you know EXACTLY how that exact pair of boots fits your foot and what size you will need. boot sizes vary from company to company and your shoe size will most likely not be the same as your boot size. i wear a size 10 shoe but a 9 for my boots and could prob even go down to a 8.5 with the right boot.

Only because this can't be reiterated enough, get fitted first.
