You would probably want the 156. You could get away with a normal width. If you set the bindings on the board correctly. You shouldn't have much toe drag. If you think it'll be to narrow. I would go with the wide version. Or a lib tech Travis rice pro 157, which at about the same size has a wider side cut to it. which I ride and with a size 8.5 boot I have absolutely no toe drag or heel drag at all. The travis rice is a different bosr though, it has lib techs c2 power banana Which has rocker between the feet and camber under the feet. It is a much different board for advanced riders, I had many skate bananas before I got my Travis rice, and the Travis rice is my go to board now. A157 Travis rice would be another chose to the wide version of this board.
