Thanks everyone

I started playing around with them and like some of you said I was able to work with the other side and the do fit tighter now but it does look like I will have to get a smaller binding in the future. I bought the bindings last year with a size 11 boot and the guy told be to stick with a large so I did

the picture does seem like your boots are sitting pretty far back in the bindings. I would move the high back base forward.
Burton bindings are unibody construction and have a fixed heel cup. This means the boots sit where they sit, they can't be pushed forward by adjusting the heel cup.

Usually, there's some kind of adjustment that can made on the other side (where the "permanently fixed" ladder strap attaches to the padding)

It's how you get the padding centered for different boot profiles

This video is for Union bindings, but look around 0:45 and 1:25 mark and see what he adjusts

lab49232 You could also move where your ankle straps are mounted on the binding back a hole. It likely wont fix it but hey every little bit helps right?

triumph.man surprised that 10.5 boots can't fit into size L bindings, no matter who the manufacturer is...
