What size TRice Pro did you get? I have a size 10 boots, Nike Vapens. If you're thinking Unions, I'd go with a L/XL binding. I have the L/XL 14 Atlas and Contacts. I like the little extra room without feeling like my feet are slammed into a M/L binding. Without a doubt, get into a shop try bindings on.

I've got the TRice Pro 161.5 and with my size 10 boot and L/XL bindings, still have about 1/2 to 1 in. overhang. I've got equal toe and heel on the binding with binding centered. And a 10, even a 10.5 still doesn't warrant a wide board. Some overhang is okay but nothing too drastic. With my boot on the board without the binding, I'd still have some overhang. Something to think about with boot/binding combos. Nike's aren't necessarily bulky boots, but the boot heels aren't the smallest in the industry. Just get in a shop and try some on even as sweet as the online deals seem.

Get the comfiest boots you can find. All in all your boots are probably the least noticeable thing in your setup (unless they are uncomfortable then they will be the most noticeable). I am using some old ride boots and they are nothing fancy but they do the job and are moderately comfortable.

Nobody can really advice you on a boot brand. Every foot is different and what's comfy for one person won't be for another. All you can do is try boots on see what works for you. Most free riders like a stiffer boot for the support and park riders like softer for the flexibility. Once you find a boot you really like, buy a second pair. Nothing worse than finally finding the perfect boot only to have it discontinued!

Agree with the two above posters.
