What width of board if size of boots varies by make?

Hi - first post, long time lurker...

More or less decided to buy a K2 raygun. I'm 6' around 200lbs and looking at either a 159 or 161 board length. I'm tempted to also buy K2 bindings and boots but not 100% sure. If I do buy K2 boots/bindings how does the size of their boots affect the width of the board I'm buying? I ask because K2 boots usually run small and I have to wear an 11 in them. However, not so with Burton or any other boot maker. Then I'm more like a 10. So here's my dilemma - if I buy K2 boots in a size 11 does that mean I should go with a wider raygun or if I decide on Burton boots and end up in a size 10 does that mean I can get a regular width board?

thanks for any advice!!!

Scotty.

With an 11 you should be fine on a normal width board. I wouldn't like at a mid-wide unless you had at least a size 12 foot.

Ok thanks - I'm a little confused because "conventional wisdom" has it that up to size 10 you are fine with a regular width board but any bigger than a 10 you should consider a wider board. The confusion being that K2's boots notoriously run small...so their size 11s are more like a 10...

I'm buying online or else this would be a non-issue in a store where I could try the set-up first...but prices are good right now.
