Default Regular of Wide

So just as I am about to finalize choosing my board. I heard that I should go wide instead of regular. I have a size 10.5 boot, and he said that I would get some heel and toe drag with it. I decided to get the Burton Process Flying V Snowboard from Backcountry.com and it has a width of 252mm. Would it be better to go wide? Also, I am getting a size large bindings if that has anything to do with it. And I measured my foot itself and it is 25/26 centimeters long if that helps.

Non wide. Rode a Burton hero (very similar board) 152 non wide all last year with size 11.5 Burton Invaders and size 11.5 DC Park Boots. And I also rode my friends Process with the same DC boots with no drag issues whatsoever.

Yy board width is 251 and i have size 11's witch measure out to about 12 in or 30.5 cm. And yes there is some hangover but I don't think its enough to have heal/toe drag. I say go with a regular size you should be fine depending on your stance angles. Mine is 15' - 12' and its completely fine.
