I wakeskate exclusively because I can't find bindings to fit my size 15 feet. Even then I go barefoot. I would like to wakeboard but I just can't find any bindings that work for me. I tried a set of XXL LF Alpha's and they were a little too small. After about breaking my ankle putting them on, I could feel my toes going numb after about 30 seconds.

Anyways, can any of y'all help a brother out and let me know who makes a big binding?

Thanks

Troy

I've got a buddy with 13's he rides my XL 05 transits, with no problems. His feet are skinny though. I wear an 11.5 and my transits feel huge to me when they are not cinched down.

I wear size 13-14 shoe (depending on brand) and I wear LF Transits Magnum(that should be the same as XXL) and they feel almost to big. I think if you got a pair of XXL and really break them in to your feet, they might feel ok.

i am 6'7'' with a size 14. i have been through all this my friend. the best bindings for you are going to be an 05' or 04 parks xxl. i also have a custom toe wrap for people with large feet to cover up our toes if your interested. cheers

Have you tried a CWB Zeus? They say the XXL goes up to a 14, but they might work with some stretching and possibly some adjustments.

The advantage is the Hinge! It opens wide to allow easy entry fr your giant foot!

I have size 14 and have 06 Transits, whatever the largest size is and they are very comfortable if not a bit loose compared to my 04 XXL Transits.

I have a 13 and rock CWB XL Zeus. I have always had to have XXL. Just so I can get my feet in. But as J-rod said The Hinge makes it easy. Try the XXL torq. I was workin a sale and a kid with 15 or 16 got a pair cuz they where the first boot he could get on easy and they didn't kill his feet!!! He was so pumped!!! The Hinge is whats up!!!!

I wear 14 shoe size and thats a bit small, but most 15's seem too heavy....so I have messed up toes.

In my oppinion, a huge part of the size of bindings is knowing how to get them on or off. I have some old 3060's that I use soap to get into and then to get out I just put the board under me and jump, I come right out. I've seen people with size 10 shoes not be able to get out of my bindings for a good 15 minutes....Retarded.....I hate watching others mistreat my bindings.


That being said, my bro had some XXL highbacks that were incredibly loose on me, also XXL Ultras I was sliding around like crazy.

Many bindings are adjustable anyway. Go to the store, try on as many as you like, find the closest, take it home, do the heat soak thing, and if you want more, adjust them.

I wear a size 15 and I definately second the 06 Trasit XXL's/Magnum's. Before I got those I had a pair of 03 or 04 XXL Hyperlite Temets that fit pretty good but were difficult to get on and off. The Transits are really easy to get off and are extremely comfortable.

I also tried the Alphas and thought they were a little too tight. The Transits for some reason felt a little bigger.
