Shopping for Bindings/Boots
Hey guys, I'm in the market for some new gear and I need some advice.
Before now, I was using a 2006 Salomon Pulse, 2006 Ride LX Bindings, and Northwave Freedom boots. My Pulse topsheet has been starting to come off, so I returned it for full store credit. Yesterday, I bought a 2008 Burton Custom that I'm sure I'll be happy with. I'm also thinking of updating all my other gear as well.
Here's the issue: My boots are size 7.5. I understand I'm right on the limit of small and medium binding sizes. My Ride LX bindings are size small. I'm thinking that maybe my boots are too small, because at the end of my season I was having dry blood under my big toes. So which case, I would upgrade to a size 8 boot, and would buy a medium sized binding at the same time. I've also read reports that the boot sizes between different manufacturers differs themselves. So then, maybe I would need a size 7.5 boot for the right fit in a different company? In which case I could probably keep using the same bindings... Any insight would be great. Thanks!
