I found a good deal on some 2010's. Problem is, I wear a 12 1/2 shoe size, 12s in nike, 13s in others. Should I get the 12s, or 13/14s? I'm worried the 13/14 would be too big. What do you guys think?

Well theyre made with intuition foam, this gives you about a half size of leeway when you heat mold em. Therefore I'd say go with the 12s, they probably run for 12 and 12.5 but heat molded can pack out to 13. 13/14 might be too huge

Good to know. What exactly is heat molding?

probably the best way to heat form them is to hold them under water at 130 degrees for ten minutes, take them out of the water put them on and let them cool off on your feet, thats what I did.

I have the same bindings. I wear an 11 1/2 shoe and I went with the 12s. I rode mine for a couple of weeks before I had them heat molded. They weren't "loose" before I had them molded to my feet, but after they fit like a glove. Best bindings I have ever put on!!!!!

+1 on the heat molding... bath tub/ bucket method works awesome. I have wide feet and wanted a bit of extra room so when I molded mine I wore thick socks.
Like Jo said dunk them in hot water for about 10 mins, put them on and cinch them up tight, I sat down for the first 5 minutes then stomped around the house for like 30. Before I did it I had a hard time getting my feet in... now they slide right in like butter.

Definitely go with the 12s. I wear a 12.5 - 13 in shoes. I originally got the 13-14 One Bindings and they were way too big. I brought them back for size 12's. They were a little snug right out of the box, but ride them for a set or two and they'll be perfect.

also, do not tie them tight when you take them out of the water to mold, make it a loose fit while they are cooling

Well, I messed up. Got lazy and missed my deal on the bindings. What are some other good ronix boots that are a little older? I'm cheap haha
