So getting ready to order afterburner bindings and not sure if I should get medium or large. I wear a 10.5/44 boot which I will be getting one of the following deelux spark, driver x, or malamute. Looking at size chart on upper end for medium but not wanting to go to big the boots that I'm looking at are high volume. Any one?
Thanks

i got the mediums, and just swapped out my 10 driver x's to 10.5s, i havent been out yet, but from what i can see, im not seeing an issue with any toe/heel drag or any other issues with the straps. personally my experience with burton boots/bindings ive always gotten large bindings, but i took the chance that spark was right with the sizing, and so from everything i can see there are no issues. more than anything else im concerned about my boots, for the last 3 seasons my feet have done nothing but kill me.... but thats a whole different thread...

I've ridden 10.5 Driver Xs the past two seasons on size large Spark Burners. I'd do the same combo again, no question. I was in the middle positions on most of the Burner's adjustment ranges, so I could still have tweaked in either direction, which is the sweet spot.

Thanks for the response I'm going with 10.5 malamutes and large afterburners.

i know its been discussed a bit in other threads before but i wonder if the smaller footprint boots have these days vs maybe years ago makes a difference (i.e. a size 10 has the footprint of a size 9)
