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.

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.

|kusanagi||the toe plates are already adjusted to the shortest distance on an M sized binding and there is only 1cm of overhang. i suppose thats too little?|

|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|

with a burton 7.5 boot you should get the smalls. They are listed up to a size 8 so you should have no problem there. How did you try them? Did you just put the boot in them or did you put the boot on your foot and then try them?
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)

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.

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

went to the shop today, tried both the S and M sized cartels.
On the S sized ones the heel overhang and the toe overhang seems to be more or less the same.
But the ankle straps were too short and they had to be adjusted to the longest length to surround the ankles. Yet it looked flimsy and may break soon.
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?
