your boots have gotta fit your feet

your binders have gotta fit your boots

if you cannae fit your boots, even after lengthening your straps

you're gonna have to swap em

Have you adjusted your straps to get maximum size? Also, what size boots do you have, and what size are your bindings?

potentially stoopid question warning....but, are you trying to bind your boot when wearing them, or just by hand to have a look at them?

i've seen this issue arise before with particularly larger/bulkier boots...

Okay here it goes... yes your boots are too big for your bindings. unfortunately when they say 9-11 they are generalizing. What boots do you have? What bindings do you have? If we know perhaps we can help you choose a better binding system.

Good luck
