best bindings for size 14 feet?

I bought a pair of '04 LF ultra suction boots XL/XXL, and there's no way I can wear them. I wear a size 13 nike comfortably, so by the chart these should fit. I could barely get them on w/ lube, and had to disassemble them to get them off. I even tried breaking them in w/ a hot water bath, followed by a cold rinse that the dealer recomended (w/ foot in them). All that left me with was a numb foot. What have others with larger feet found that fits comfortably? I have an HO slalom ski with XXL bindings that fit great.

thanks!
David

My son, also 13/14 gets in my xl boots ok, but they have been used quite a bit. I was told that you can put something in the binding and leave it there to stretch them out. Like a softball or whatever size works.

try adding hair conditioner to the hot water bath, then put something in them to stretch them like leroy says....

or you could try barefooting.

I have animal XXL for my size 14's. One of the rubber pieces ripped and Wiley had a replacement part that actually feels better. If I were buying new high wraps, would seriously look at wiley's.

ultra suctions are very tight anyways, and the longer you ride the tighter they get. Try the new transits. Larger footpad and you can get a pair for around 200 bucks right now

Size 13 here

I just switched wakeboard bindings and went with O'Brien Link bindings. These bindings lace up the front like a shoe and everyone from a 9 to a 14 can wear them! Super comfy and very good performance, some of the best cash spent ever!!

Good Luck
