larrytbull do you have a picture of the full boot in bindig so we can see how it is mounted. after 5 seasons with flow nx2 bindings. one of the things i have found is that an improper setup on the bindings will cause what you are showing and much more
watch the flow adjustment videos to help.

if the heel cup is not in the right position for the boot size, the heel will be too narrow for the back of the boot causing the wear. also if toe strap is too far in .... pictures are easier to diagnose.

the other bit that many people dont realize is that you dont slide the boot in flat from toe to heel, you need to point the toe in from an angle especially in nx2 or fuse due to the narrow heel cup (personal pet peeve on flows)

hopefully this will help you enjoy the boot /bindng combo

Of course it's an exaggeration, it's the Internet. 😁

But look at these two images from my thread. You'll have a good half inch or more on either side of the boot. If one is ok for the tradeoff of oversized vs. snug fit, then XL is the way to go.

These images are with an 11.5 Ride Lasso boot. You can see in the first picture, with the XL, there is ample room, too much IMO, on the sides at the highback bolt (the narrowest point). With the L, the bolt is just brushing up against the boot.

They have been great so far

Only issue I have found so far is that the chassis is little bit tight for the boots, and wears the side of the boots.

If you are like me size 11 or bigger go for XL bindings
I started another thread a while ago (I had spaced-out on this thread's existence) and asked this very question. So you would go for the larger XL next time? You know the boots will be absolutely floating in that case right, due to so much width? That's usually not what is recommended for typical boot-binding fit. And Flow's need all the heel stability they can get because of the way the rear-entry highback hold works.

Do you feel the highback bolts against the boot while riding?

Argo flow talon and hylite are the best boots I have owned through the years. In Dec I went around and tried on every boot that is rated as stiff and of high quality build and still ended up with flow again. I still get over 100 days out of a pair of boots, I already have a new pair of talons for next season since they were on sale for 65% off....

The fit into the binding has nothing to do with the quality of them. You have to follow their size recommendations and a boot in the 11 size needs the XL binding..

I tried that solution one season. Expensive lesson. I bought Flow 'The One' boots to go with my NXT FXRs. I got through one full season, really liked them. Comfortable, and they're designed to fit Flow bindings, with a beveled heel to make it easier to flip up the high back, and narrower toe area so they slip into the front strap better. But at the beginning of the second season with them they seams were splitting, and they were totally falling apart. That was a few years ago, maybe build quality got better.

Argo 11 is gonna be too big for large bindings.

The Burton ION have been giving me problems, so I'm thinking of getting the Talons. I've only heard good things, but can't find any shop that has them for me to try. Also, looking at the photos above, seems like the size 11 I'd need wouldn't fit well into the binding. You'd think Flow boot -> Flow binding would work?


It should probably fit, I would think?

I bought Talons, and the 9.5 was very tight.

I wear a 9 in a lot if brands, but there is no way I'd fit in a Talon size 9

Maybe others will chime in about the sizing.
