Hi, I'm new here. This year I'm going to purchase the Rome 390 Boss Bindings and I was wondering about the sizing. I going to be wearing Rome Bodega Boots at size 9. So I'm not sure what size to get since apparently M and L both meet at size 9 boots. Would it be better to get something smaller or bigger? Thanks!

Go with the S/M. They're plenty adjustable, so they'll fit your boot just fine.

Can you take your boots to the board shop and try them? I'd go with a medium if you can get away with it. I had those bindings with size 10 and they were huge.

I hope they've improved those bindings since I bought them a few years ago. I spent so much time bitching to Rome I wouldn't sport their gear if they gave it to me. Maybe I just got a shitty pair :dunno:

Everyone here seems to talk them up.

I just might do that, but it seems like I could just buy a medium right now, my closest board shop is like an hour away so I didn't want to make the trip if I didn't have to.

Sorry you had such a bad experience with them, I do keep hearing they're super high quality too which is part of the reason I chose them over the Union Forces or Burton Cartels

I'm sure NWBoarder is right, I bet you could just get a medium if the trip is inconvenient. Hopefully some others come in to validate. Like I said my size 10 boots were swimming in the Large 390s.

I rock the Bosses. I use a L/XL with a size 10/10.5 boot and honestly...they could be a bit smaller. It's pretty common for people to rock a S/M with these bindings wearing either my size or close to it because of it's adjustability

It depends on your boot, but it's a tough call because you fall right in the middle. Honestly I'd suggest going with the L/XL because the toe strap length can cause pinching issues on the sides of your toebox if you like to strap in tight. Only problem is the larger chassis will leave room for some lateral freeplay within the binding, which is why I've gone completely away from Rome's metal bindings after owning and loving several pairs of 390's and Targas over the years.
