dkzach Size 9 boots are compatible I'm pretty sure every board,

krazibone I've also got my eye on a Rook but i'm having trouble finding a sizing chart for mid-wide boards. Needing a board Japan Niseko next year and looking for a good all rounder that can tackle a bit of everything.

Can anyone point a little insight on whether a size 9 boot would be compatible with a mid-wide board?

Thinking of getting a 154cm or 156cm at the moment.

I'm 5'7 and 156-160lbs

158 should be pretty much bang on for you. Could even go 156 if you aren't doing much steeps and deep pow.

158 it is then.
Thanx for the help!
