Suggestions?

I just bought a 156cm 2011 Burton Custom with large Cartel EST bindings. I don't really know much about boot types but I will primarily be freeriding and I wear size 10-10.5 boots. I'm hesitant to get any Burton boots because of the shrinkage tech, which would make my bindings not fit.

Any suggestions?

Buy low, sell high.

I wouldn't worry about Burton boots, I have used cheepo Missions for the past 4 seasons with no fitment issues except for them packing out a bit but defiantly NOT shrinking. In addition that fast lace is the bizness.

You won't do it.

Yea, I would look into Burton boots but I just ordered Large Cartels which are supposed to fit size 10+ and most Burton boots have something called shrinkage tech which makes boots outside design fit one size lower, so if I got Burton boots size 10 or 10.5, they would fit into the bindings like 9 and 9.5 so I would have to use medium bindings, which I don't have...

Actually, now that I look again... Medium bindings fit sizes 8-11 which would be perfect, especially with shrinkage tech... Guess I made a mistake in ordering sizes, haha

I use a size 10 and even though burton large bindings say they should support a 10, the toe strap wouldnt adjust and would be loose even at its tightest. I'm riding Nitro boots too, not Burton. Depending on the boot, you may have problems getting a 10 to fit in a large

Alright, thanks for the advice. I ended up returning the bindings and ordering mediums, because I don't think I'm going to go over size 11 boots, and if I do, I can still use Burton boots. So the size problem's solved, but does anybody have any recommendations for good all-mountain boots? Or just good boot brands in general?

Burton Rulers and Ions seem popular. Nike Zoom Force if you want something a little stiffer. I have Nike Kaijus and love them. But the important thing is to try them on to make sure they're comfortable on your feet.

Vans Fargo are fucking legit boots...

I've been riding vans for years now, first some BFB's, and now Andreas Wiig II's. Each year they refine their line and the Fargo is looking awesome. The new comfort liner is so cush. If I were a more all mtn rider I'd def upgrade to the Fargo.
