Will a 10.5 foot fit on a 247 width board. I plan on using Burton boots with the shrinkage tech. But even if I don't use them will the width be fine??

It's hard to find a good width board because I need a 147 board but I have a 10.5 size foot?

Input/Suggestions???

do you already have a board picked out? follow some of the tips in the thread linked. and depending on your stance/angles, you might be able to make it work.

I do have a board on layaway right now. But it is a 247 waist width as I stated. I usually ride about 15, -7 (Large Bindings). Would that be enough angle

+1 with MT.  I suppose it depends on what you are doing all day though, but if you intend to carve at all, you are going to get toe drag.

i have forum factions that pop up my toes just a bit. My toes never drag nor do my heels and i carve pretty deep into my edges too.

this guy ^^ posts a bunch of nonsense all the time ... the things he says are always pointless or incorrect.. but on another note.

you may have a bit of an issue i had a 247 as my first board and i tried it out for shits and giggles with my large bindings and size 10.5 boot and i ripped up my toe straps on my new bindings i was a little upset had to replace my toe straps i couldnt stand looking at brand new torn up bindings i barely rode them and they looked a season old.

that's pretty tight on toe drag. i really like the burton boots cause of the shrinkage tech. but it's not a huge difference. at most u'll get is 1 size smaller and if switching from an old burton boot (2008 hail) to a new one (2011 grail) it's like .5 size smaller.

I think u can get away with that tho. 247 board width and 267 boot length. so that'll be 24.7 to 26.7.

and if u have a L bindings usually burton boots are smaller so you can TRY get a M size bindings instead of a L. Try it out in the store first cause my cousin had this issue.

He went burton boots for the shrinkage tech and got a M size bindings. I think he's also 10.5 boot size and he rides 156.

Isn't this really a nonissue?  I mean, since toe and heel drag come from your boots dragging, not from your bindings hanging off of the edge.  All that would do is put your boots in bindings that are too small and your boots will still hang over the edge.


Keep in mind stance width is another variable (not just stance angles).  Wider the stance, less chance of overhang.  So if you ride pretty wide, that'll help, if you have a narrower stance, more likely youll get toe drag

well L bindings are what 10+ and when he had a burton boot size 10 in a L it wasn't tight enough on his boot so moving down in binding size also helped have a better hold in his bindings.

To add to my information as well my cousin's stance is 23" so you can factor that in too.

My stance width is about 21.5. I really am having trouble finding a wider board in my size. I only weigh 120 and am 5'5" tall, so I need about a 147-151 board. So my feet are kind of disproportional to my weight and height

The 152W (wide) is 259mm. If so why not look for the boards that are built for wide feet?

you still have a problem with board width if you use that board. it's 248mm for the 151. They only got 160W

If I use a Burton Shrinkage wont the boot size essentially be a 9.5 instead of 10.5?? That would work right?

essentially that's the idea behind the tech.

i know coming from a DC boot to a Burton boot it is a size difference. But from a Burton to a Burton like i said earlier hail 2008 to grail 2010 was only .5 difference in foot print not actual foot size. i wear size 8 but let's say the foot print is 8. so now i bought grails size 8 so foot print is 7.5. i just put them side by side to get this rough estimate.

If you're just talking size in general it's hard because some of my friends say they wear different sizes in different brand boots. ie my friend wears a smaller size in nike and bigger in burton. but if you're talking foot print i think Burtons are smaller than others. i can't say 100% tho.

i'd say play it safe your first time around testing this. go to a store and check the boots and put them sole to sole and see how they compare.  then you can start with that to figure it all out and buy it online.
