Default Bindings and Boot selection

Hey guys, I have a brand new Rome Flag 163 board and was curious what kind of boots and bindings yall thought I should get. I have size 13 feet and do not want the click in bindings, i would much prefer the straps. Thanks guys.

By click in you mean step in? News flash, step ins are gone with the 90's...

You have straps or hybrid binders like Flows or the K2 Auto and Cinch.

Rome, Union, K2, Ride, and others make good strap bindings.

Boots, it is all going to come down to your foot. Vans and Salomon make quality boots. You'll have to try them on to see if they work for you. If they don't fit your foot then they suck, go with someone else.

Just run if anyone wants to sell you step in or "click" in binders. Those things are dinosaurs. Nobody makes them anymore.

I didn't say you couldn't find them. I just wouldn't want them.

lol click bindings.

I got some Technine bindings, they were about $150 with the toe straps. They're strong and got great support. As for the boots, you should just go try some on, I'm sure you can find a crazy deal during the summer at some shops.

Boots are all about fitment. As the boot guide suggests, I tried on A LOT of boots. Ride were the most comfortable boots for me and I was going to go with what I think were the Haze, but the shop didn't have the right size. I waited and got a great deal on the Aspect on close out, which was the same boot with some added features. The thing I like most beyond the comfort of the Ride boots is the lacing system. They got the speed lacing system right, no other boot company got it right. Two straps, one to lock down the inner liner and fore-boot and another strap to lock down the upper boot. It's super easy to use. Again, these boots fit me great, they might not fit you well, but I would suggest trying them out at least.
