I have more than that so you should be good
If you concerned take a measurement. I believe that up to 1.5 inch is fine and it looks like you have about 1 inch overhang. Also you could look into boots that have shrinktech.

How do you guys setup your bindings?
So its equal toe/heel hanging out or?
I tryed my new cartels with my Banana, and I have to slide the highback forwards and the baseplate at the most forward setting it can be and still isent completly equal :P
Therefore I have a little more heel outside

I have mine set with as close to equal toe and heel overhang as I can. That's really the best way. And a little won't kill you, but a lot will.

I think you should be fine. If you really want to make sure, go with the smaller boots but you don't want to cramp your feet. I don't think there should be a big problem.

Doesnt look like youve centered your bindings over the board. That will improve the overhang.

Using the base plate. That is a lot of toe drag.

different bindings use different approaches to centering the boot.
