What brand/size do you wear and do you like them or not? I got 05 Parks and I hate them. I get lots of ankle lift in my front foot.

My son wears about a 12 1/2, 13 and loves his LF Sphinx, size XL. Last year he had LF Alpha XL and was very happy. My middle son had Parks 2 year ago and hated them as well, they caused him all kinds of foot problems.

i have narrow size 14 feet. i always rode parks XXLs until LF finally made the transits in magnum size, now i have a pair of those. i'm still getting used to the transits, both bindings are comfortable, they're just different...

My son wears a 12 1/2 to 13 shoe and rides the 06 Murray closed toe in a large. he rode the 05 Parks also in large. If you are riding a Parks XL and getting ankle lift they might be to big.

I have XXL alphas and I wear a 13 and I think that XL's would fit better, the XXL's are really long.

Well thats the thing I have Parks XXL and they are way tight except for the heel. I have an odd shaped foot and also have hammer toes so find the right binding has been a real pain. I like the idea of a closed toe but I can't imagine a 13 fitting into a large binding.

XXL don't go smaller. I wear 13, and they fit great. I can actually tighten them but I like them a little loose, personal preference. If you ride in any cold weather that boot will be hell getting in if it's a XL. GO XXL!

I wear a 13 extra wide shoe and I just bought a pair of 06 CWB TORQ HINGE TECH'S size XXL and love them. No heel lift great support and really comfortable.

I wear a 13 or 14 depending on the shoe and I wear Liquid Force EVOs sized XL. They're a bugger to get on and off but I really prefer the tight fit to the XXLs I've tried on. And if it makes any difference, my feet are a little on the narrow side but not so much that I look like Sideshow Bob.

i wear a size 13.5 and i wear the LF watsons in size 11-12, and honestly i tighten them as far as i can and still wish they were tighter, i almost put my foot through the front the other day...

i used to have 04 highbacks XL and those fit great

I'm 13.5
Have alpha ones, little snug on my wide foot.
Obrien Links, really spacious, but to lose IMO
Just Got CWB Zues , LOVE THEM, comfy, easy in and out and they snug up tight, much more support then the others I mentioned. By far the best, really an incredible feel.
XXL in all of those by the way, hope it helps
