Which bindings should I get?
 
I am new to riding, just attempted and landed my first jump this weekend. :)

Anyway, I am looking into buying bindings. I don't want crappy ones, but I'm also not willing to spend top dollar. What do you guys think of these?

They are the 2011 Ronix Halo Boots. I have skinny feet, so the men's bindings are usually too wide.

My next choice would be these, but they seem a bit cheap/less comfortable around the ankle:

Thoughts on these or links to other good deals would help. Looking to stay under $200.

Thanks in advance!!

I don't have any experience on either binding but I have seen the Halo's in person and they seem pretty cool. Judging by the evo description, the Halo's are more stiff than the other pair you posted. I think you would be fine with going with the Halo's unless you want a really stiff boot.

O'Brien Skyla 2011 boots
 
Here's a link to some O'Brien Skyla boots from 2011. Because they're not the current year, you can find them at really good prices. I don't know if the ones on this link are your size, but these boots are AWESOME! For real, they're the most comfortable & best fitting boots I've put on. You'll love them!

i have the Halo's.. I recommend the Halo's! I bought them this year... and wish i had done it sooner I have very narrow feet as well. I did get a blister the first week... but that's it. I had guys' bindings, that were too big for me.

I ended up ordering the Halos, I'll let you guys know how they work out. Thanks for all of your help! :)

Thanks you guys are awesome!! Kim, the ones Tarah recommended looked nice but I couldn't find them in my size. The Halos arrived today and they fit great. I hope to try them out his weekend or next!

I think you made the right choice. I don't think you can go wrong with Ronix boots. I have had 3 different parts and they are all awesome.

Wore 'em out this weekend. They are super comfy and fit great.
