|neni||Looks good. If possible, you could move the toe ramp one click more forward but it looks fine. Hope, she'll like it and most of all, that the boot fits her feet.|

Here's an update, ended up going with some 8.5s. Any advice on the fit? These are with the medium bindings.

Yes sure, if would take effort to get the boot into the binding then it certainly wouldn't be the right match. I don't say get the smaller at any cost . Meant that a smaller that still fits is less harm than the bigger that is a tad too big. Too big binding ride bit dull: more effort needed to get the same response. Not optimal, also not for a beginner.
Give her a gift certificate for a local shop where she can try the boots n bindings when gear is out again next autumn and you can check the match. That would be the way I'd go.

But now from a think too much about everything stand point I'm kinda thinking from a beginner point I don't want so snug that it becomes an effort for a beginner at the top of the lift to align things perfect to strap in.

The straps won't be the problem. Potential problem could be that the boot heel doesn’t fit into the narrower heel cup. It needs a little squeeze to fit my 8.5 boot into my M Escapades.
As the footprint of the boot for this binding is at the most upper range, I fix the binding in the most front hole of the binding plate to position the binding a bit more to the heel edge. Works perfectly.

That actually makes more sense when you think about it... Haha
Thank god for the internet eh...

I know my sons smalls technically start at a 4 but his 3s fit them no problem. I think they punch way more strap adjustment holes than the size range they specify.
And it seems it'll be easier to tell if it is too small as opposed to whether it's so large it may not be ideal.

Best would be to check in the shop, if the 8.5 boot fits the M binding you intend to get.
I'm between the M/L binding sizes as well, (my shoes are usually size 8.) I've combined size 8 Burton and size 8.5 Ride boots, both with size M Burton bindings.
I rather have a binding at the smaller end than at the edge of being too big. Too big length wise means you loose leverage, ability to use the gas pedal, and in terms of wigth you may slip sideways.
