Alkasquawlik If you're a beginner, it won't matter what binding you'll end up with, you won't be able to notice the differences. They're going to react roughly the same anyway. Buy the one looks coolest to you or whatever.

whatupdet I have one final question, I'm about to place an order and I came across another site which are selling the Burton Malavita for the same price as the Mission but I don't know how responsive or soft I want my bindings? Thoughts? If it helps, I'm a beginner and will not be attempting a half pipe any time soon.

You will fit into L Burton bindings, you will just need to tweak/adjust them to fit your boot once you take them out of the box.

Seriously?

With a size 12-13 boot, he is going to fit into whatever the largest size binding the company makes (whether that's a L, XL, or L/XL from the manufacturer).

whatupdet I'm a size 13 (might fit a 12-12.5 depending on make) so I'll definitely be fine with a L binding and from the couple of sites I looked at their selection of size 13 boots are pretty limited which is why I wanted to get bindings first.

Some Guy If you are in one of those weird sizes that falls in between two sizes, sounds like a good idea to buy boots first. If you are around the middle, then I don't think it will be a problem, but I'm not even pretending to be an expert. I personally would try to get boots first. Not all boots are created equally.

Alkasquawlik What size foot are you?

Generally it's recommended to wait to buy bindings until you have boots, because there may be some issues getting a proper fit, but 90% of the time, your boot is going to fit into a binding. Especially now that the vast majority of bindings are totally adjustable, you should be fine. The only issue you may run into is if your foot/boot size is between Burton's binding sizes (ie you could either be a M or a L).
