Slingshot bindings users...what size???

Postby sijandy » Tue Sep 24, 2013 5:39 pm

I've heard that the slingshot sizing system is a bit strange and you end up with a different size than the shoe you would usually take. It's unlikely i will get to try some first so thought i'd get some users feedback as to what size i should order. I'm a UK size 10 in trainers.

If your getting a pair of Shredtowns or Rads (with removable liner) go a size smaller. They will be tight at first but as the foam packs out they will fit good. Get regular size if your not going with the removable liner.

Iam wearing size 10,5 uk. I have shredtown size 12. Not to mention the additional cost for deliveries and returns since the first time i order the recomended size. Keep in mind thAt the liners have to be cooked for better fit!!!try them before u pay them.

Are the sizings generally the same accross the board for the big names, slingshot/liquid force/ronix etc, ie is a size 10 slingshot the same as size 10 liquid force?
