Rode this binding for 2 seasons and loved them. Had my first strap tear this season, but it only cost $10 to buy a new one and they are super easy to replace. I found that the single v-strap set up put a lot of pressure on my arches... kind of squashed my feet down... used to get a lot of foot cramps but I through in some gel arch supports and they've been golden ever since! The frame is also nice and wide so they accommodate 32 boots with ease. Definitely recommend these babies.
Could these possibly adjust down to...
Could these possibly adjust down to accommodate a size seven and a half womens Vans boot?
Depending on the type of boot it is very possible. With some of the low profile boots out there though you could have issues.

Everything you need to know to get your Bandita setup with your boots.
i just ordered a womens medium size 8-10....
i just ordered a womens medium size 8-10. my boots a 9 and i tried adjusting everything.. theres no way its gonna fit. anyone know whats up?
It could be because the sole of your boot is too wide for that frame. You might either want to try a Ride boot(because those seem to work the best with Ride bindings, obv lol) or just try to go up a size for your binding. If you can take your boot to your local shop and fit them there, that would be best. But im thinking its a result of your boot being too wide. Like are the straps maxed out? Or is it just the cage(frame) that isnt fitting?
there is alot of adjustment to do before you even mount them to the board. Check out some videos for fitment to the boot

this binding is the craziest binding created.... the new v strap across the toe creates a ton of response with minimal pressure across your toe... this means that you hardly feel it... not to mention, one ratchet needing to be buckled down means that you are in and out in half the time.. the balance ankle strap provides support yet is more comfortable than your feather pillow.. the wedgie 2.5 footbed gives you more power in your ollies and lines up your joints so that you have less fatigue and more strength in big landings and deep pow slashes.... the luxlite highback fits perfectly with a womens calf and gives comfortable response... check it out for yourself... a super durable, comfortable, quick in and out, responsive binding... what more could you ask for...
It's not in the picture above, as it was added right before production. But Ride added an extension piece to the outside of the binding to 100% guarantee that your foot stays in place while you ride.
Edit: Guess it is in the picture. But it's a great update from last year to keep your boot in place and give you all the support and performance you need.
