I'm about a size 13-14, I wear XXL's... I can fit in XL's comfortably, but my toes hang out too far .

Size 15 here, Parks XXLs for me. Nice and comfy, and as a bonus my toes hang way over and look really cool.

13s and ride LF Sphynx XLs. they're super comfy and rock out with your toes out. but XL ultras were garbage. stay away from wrap-style bindings w/ no adjustability

XXL Transits for me. size 13-14 depending on the shoe. Go XXL, and buy bindings that are very adjustable. The transits have three separate places to tighten things up.

Squeezing into a binding that is too small and has limited adjust-ability seems like a recipe for equipment failure after time. I wonder how many of the binding failure/tear problems that people have are caused in part by using a binding that is too small and not using lube.

A friend has LF bindings that he swore didnt need lube. He tore them, got them replaced, now uses a small amount of lube and they have worked for a LONG time now.

For what its worth.

I have a size 13. XXL in HL. And my Transits and my sphynx are XL. Go to a shop, put some on your feet, and just hang out for like 20 or 30min. Have them put on a video for you and just keep them on your feet.

I'm a 13 and I run XL Liquid Force Transits and they fit beautifully.

Sorry, I am an idiot, mine are Temets.

Brainfart.

XXL Temets, not transits.

I go with XXL and have around a 12-13 foot. I cannot stand my toes hanging off the edge. I ride Obrein Ions and love them.

I wear 12-13 and I have narrow feet.

I have Temet 04 XXL and I can't come out of my binding without external help.

I have O'brien Radeon 05 XXL and I come out alone ;)
Very confy binding, good foot bed and solid

Find a NICE bindings dealer in your area and request the XXL Scarecrows.
You wont be sorry. NICE bindings had the least returned bindings of all major manufacturors(?) last year. Comfy too.

thanks for the info guys. can some of you measure the footbed of your bindings and let me know how long they are? I don't want to buy the wrong pair.

I have 14s and have XL Alpha's from 2 years ago. I can not get out of them in the winter time at all. Bought the new XXL Alpha's and they are smaller than my old XL's. Just returned them and bought XXL HL which look like they go bigger.
