concerned about new gear

yesterday my parents bought me a whole new set up. i weigh 141 and im five foot ten. i have a size 11 foot. i picked out the 153 Ride DH board, Burton Freestyle boots and the K2 Cinch CTX bindings. he gave me a size 11.5 and xl bindings. when i got home i noticed theres a half inch toe hang on both of the bindings. is this okay? did the guy give me the wrong size boots and bindings? should i return it to get a bigger board and get smaller boots and bindings? or keep it?

i would not be worried about 0.5" hang.

i am a little concerned about the boots though. did you try on an 11 and they fit? if so, wearing an 11.5 may be a problem.
