Radar Vector Binding

I have size 11 feet and unfortunately can't try these on before I make a purchase. Do you guys think I should get the standard size boot (sizes 7 - 11) or the larger size boot (sizes 10 - 14). Thanks for the help!

    I think 7-11. I'm a size 13/14 and obviously use the 10-14 and I actually have room to spare.

    If you want to release on a hard fall go with the larger. I wear 10.5 shoe and I went with the 10-14 and love them. The 7-11 were extremely tight. These boots are nice because even with the larger boot, you can basically tighten it as much as you need, you wont be moving around inside. My opinion is absolutely go with the larger

    I agree with @spartanskier10. I'm a men's 10.5 (Adidas) and the 10-14 (XL) Vector is perfect for me.

    just like what has been said, if you are going all out and don't want to release as easy go with the 7-11 and know they will be tight! if you have a wider foot you may have trouble, me personally would go for the 10-14 for comfort and my foot would have less of a chance of falling asleep

    go with the larger size. I'm using Obrien sectors. Very similar binding. They do stretch a little after a few uses. I've always worn my bindings loose, barely snug the ankle bungy. The bottom lace can go pretty tight and you'll still eject. I am of the opinion that it's better to eject and ski another day.

    I'm a true size 11. Tried these on three weeks ago. I was definitely a size 7-11. The 10-14s would have been huge. Even put the 11 on with a sock on my foot which is actually easier when you can't get the binding wet. FWIW. BKH

    It depends some on the width of your feet. I have a B width and somewhat flat so I usually am better with going down on open toe boots.

    I use 7-11 and have feet size EUR 42-43 (a bit wide feets)

    Works fine and also allows me to have a 2mm sock when it is cold.
    Actually 2 par when it is really, really cold but then it is quite tight

    Life is too short not to enjoy every day!

    I'm not sure what size I rode but I have a few rides on the Vector. Initially, I was unhappy with the responsiveness. So I added a foam pad behind the ankle. This tightened up the boot substantially without having to cinch the laces. )Note, I use a pad behind the Intuition liner on my hardshell so for my small ankles this is normal.) After that I felt the bindings were quite good and an excellent choice for the SDSU team trick ski (bindings used by several different skiers).

    Go with the XL for sure. I am in the same boat and rode the 7-11 vectors and HATED how tight/small they were and felt.

    I am a 10.5 and the 7 - 11 fits me perfect.

    With open-toe boots the fit will probably depend mostly on the width and shape of your foot. When I was getting a new ski a couple years ago I tried the Connelly Sidewinder first and it just felt terrible on my foot (I have a narrow foot with a high arch and instep) and then I tried their Talon binding, which I think is pretty similar to the Vector. I wear a size 12 shoe but got the Talon binding recommended for size 10-11 shoe wearers. Because my foot is narrow I was swimming in the binding of the recommended size but the smaller size felt great and my toes just stick out a little more.
