My fiance wanted a pair of LF minx mediums, but we couldn't find them anywhere. She likes my sphynx and said she would be happy if we could find a man's small in the sphynx. She wears a 8.5 in women's shoes. The sphynx small are for men's sizes 5-7. Do women out there ride men's bindings? Does anyone know the differences between them besides color?

I've used both minx and sphynx and I don't think they're different. I think I'm around a US size 8, and I wore mediums in both. I think she'll need to try them on the be sure of the size! the M sphynx I wore had been stretched a fair bit before I wore them, so they did feel bigger, but not by much, so I think unstretched they may even be the same. What size are your sphynx, and how big are they on her?

quite a few online stores seem to have them in stock, or were you looking for a different year maybe? <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.wakeside.com/page/W/PROD/girls_wakeboard_bindings/liquid_force_minx_bindings_07" target="_blank">http://www.wakeside.com/page/W/PROD/girls_wakeboard_bindings/liquid_force_minx_bindings_07</a> <BR><a href="http://www.buywake.com/catalog/detail/8dMA5" target="_blank">http://www.buywake.com/catalog/detail/8dMA5</a>

Thanks Alice. My sphynx are XL so they would be huge on her. You said you wore a medium in sphynx and they were not big on you? Thanks for the input.

that's right, the medium sphynx felt like a pretty good fit. Sounds like her feet are a touch bigger than mine so the mediums would probably be perfect.

Yeah the M would be perfect for her... I had them and I really liked them... even more than the Minx because they go higher on your calf.

My shoe size is womens 6 and I wear the Transits in a mens small. They fit great, a little too tight even. I think the best advice it to try before you buy. I tried on so many different pairs of bindings, mens and womens, and the Transits were the ones I thought were the most comfortable.

I'm a size 7.5 or 8 and I wear a men's size medium. I usually go for men's since I don't really care for pink and purple.
