I wear a womens 8 boot, and even a small mens binding has lots of extra, unnecessary width which can cause problems. I do like the added bonus of bigger highbacks though...can't have it both ways I guess!

its about the weight / stiffness ratio... imo.
The Escapade is a great Binding !
my wife rides is on a 149 Roxy Eminence
go for it if you like !
pair it with a Skate Banana 145N ; 148N or 149 ... depending on Bootsize and your riding preference!!
sometimes i ride together with a girl who loves to ride the Custom X from her boyfriend for bombing and hard charging..

Ride what you want
Yea, ride what you want as long as it fits your riding style and you like the ride. Of boards I've owned in the past, 50% have been mens. My next board is a women's board, they're narrower and smaller for my build now - former fatty. I just can't power them around like I used to.

Hmmm, not the Escapades. She's got 2014 Lexas, which are supposed to be stiffer than the Escapades?!?
I was trying to say she should be Burton Diodes Re:flex size small, why not eh?!?

Anyway! Has she tried the '14 Burton Escapades? I'm using the Spark Afterburner (stiff as stiff can be) as well but gotta say that I really love them new burton straps on the Escapades. No padding, nontheless comfy and very responsive. She may like them.

Can a woman ride a mens bicycle and vise versa?!? There's your answer...
I was encouraging my better half to get mens bindings because she can get something much stiffer than the womens lineups (she really likes them stiff!), we'll see what she gets for next season.

Short answer: yes, we can.
By chance, I've owned more men's than women's boards. But there are also women's boards that would fit your need for more stability, there's really no special need to go for men's boards. A stiffer and - above all - longer women's board will ride more stable than your board now.
However, if you want to look into men's boards, the main feature to keep an eye on is waist width as they are wider than women's boards. What's your boot size? I've a wmn 8.5 and find boards up to 25mm to be still ok, which translates to men's boards up to 158, depending on brand and model.
