Tips to Finding the Right Snowboard Bindings
It is recommended that you buy boots before purchasing a pair of snowboard bindings, since you can fit your snowboard bindings snugly without worrying about the shoes being too big or too small. You will find the snowboard bindings in small, medium, and large. The shoes also come in many shapes.
The heel cup as well as the base plate can affect how well your shoes fit your feet. Once you have your boots on you can take them with you when you shop for snowboard bindings. Wear your boots when you try on the snowboard bindings while pointing your toes down, and inside them. Make sure you push the heel so that it goes back and fits well into the pair of heel cups.
Make sure that the heel slides in with ease. However make sure that there is not too much of movement either. Compatibility of your shoe and the snowboard binding is an important factor too. Basically, all of the latest snowboard bindings fit to match the latest bindings. However Burton is the only snowboard binding shoes that uses the three-hole patterns.
