I have the 2008 Forces in White. The binding hasn't changed at all (aside from some graphical details and the stitching on the straps). These are some seriously amazing bindings. The M/L fits my 10.5 Burton Hail's perfectly, but if you don't have a newer streamlined boot, you'll want to size up to the L/XL from about size 10 and up.Perfect flex, extremely comfortable. I've not had any problems with the toe straps, they seem to fit my boots fine, and are a HUGE step above the old cap straps on my previous Forum bindings. They also weigh about half as much. You can't go wrong with these bindings, they're really that good.The straps are made of some synthetic man made leather, and my ankle straps started to delaminate after one ride. Gave Union a call and they sent me new straps in the mail without question. Their customer service is second to none.
