Sick-Pow Mediums are too big.

They have also changed over the years. Small mens or Women's Med. You can request different ladder length if you are nice when you call Burton.

pictures would help.

That said if you are using burton boots in a burton binding the 7.5's should fit the size small. In my earlier advice I said get the medium, you should only do this if it's the case that when the boot is properly on your foot and the straps are at max length you don't have enough length.

Supra yes, they get smaller because you pull the laces tight. You can pull out the gas pedal (toe plate) to get the right fit

I find if my foot isn't in them, you can't crank the straps down like normal. Also, even if you're on the last hole on the straps, don't worry - they won't break. Burton tests their straps to work on every hole.

oh, and if you can find the cartel limited or regional love cartels, get those. They are better than regular cartels. Also, remember you don't need to get the est version.
If you can find the french regional cartels, let me know! or even better, the german ones (don't know if they have some)
you mean the boots get smaller when I put my feet into them, doesnt that sound weird?

how much toe overhang of the boot beyond the toe plate of the binding should there be?

Sick-Pow Hopefully I am not too late here.

Get some Womens bindings, size M, or L, try them on. Lexa are good. The straps will fit better. Fuck colors. Get hot pink, none cares.

7.5 boot is tough. Remember the waist is at the center, so the board tapers a lot. good luck, if you are a good rider, that board will rock no matter the size of your foot.

On the M sized ones the toe overhang would only be around 1cm while the heel overhang is around an inch.
If the transparent bubble on the binding fits precisely into the rail which is the middle of the board, then the heel overhang would definitely be larger.


So which size should i get?
you don't have to put the bubble in the centre, you can adjust the bindings so that the overhang is equal. Also note that you can probably make the toe part of the binding shorter or longer, at least on some burton bindings if not all.

Sounds like you should get the medium so the ankle straps are the right length.

lastly I hate all you guys with your deep powder and your cheetah's, I so wish I lived somewhere that I had good reason to have a cheetah instead of riding the white ribbon of death unless I get on a plane
