Sorry to bump a 2 year old thread, I found it in a google search.
Anyways I have a pair of size 11.5 lashes from this season. My foots a 12 but after the 11.5s packed out I felt like I could of got away going down to 11. But I had size L/XL Forces and didn't really feel like I needed all the extra room width wise and in the straps because the Lashes are so low profile, I had the ankle straps on there smallest hole and the heel cups back to the 1 mark thing and that had me centered on the board, unlike the Burton Sabbaths size 12 I had the year before with the heel cup way back and the straps on a bigger setting on those same bindings.
So for next year, should I go with size 11 Lashed and M/L bindings? (Im thinking Contacts next season) or go L/XL again? And what if my broke ass can't afford new boots and I stick with the blown out( I got 73 days this season!/claim) 11.5s, should I go M/L or L/XL ?
I really just wish I had a warehouse full of everything so I could try it all out before buying it, like some people do...
And parker, I've noticed while setting up my bindings before that I cant really get an accurate fit unless my foot or somethings in the binding cause when you ratchet it down the top all compresses into the foot cavity and its hard to get the boot jammed in all the way and seated in the binding like you would do on the hill. But you seem to have gotten away with it okay.
