If these were indeed bought from a legitimate ski shop who is a Volkl dealer they should be able to obtain the bindings for you but at what cost? Why did they sell them to you with out the bindings?
My guess is that you bought these skis from some guy in a back alley or off of Craigs List and he asked you "Hey, want to buy this pair of $1500 skis for $100. All they need are a pair of bindings. You should be able to get them anywhere."
If this is the case. Shame on you and you got what you deserve, a worthless pair of skis and a heap of trouble if you try to get bindings from a legitimate Volkl dealer as I am sure if they were stolen from a dealer the serial numbers are being circulated.

I am sorry but when someone claims to have bought a ski at a killer price but without an essential piece included that isn't available separately, I see red flags all over the place. I know of NO REPUTABLE SKI SHOP that would sell a ski without the integrated binding that comes with it. Period end of discussion. There is more to this story.
Not long ago someone posted a similar question from someone with a pair of Volkl's minus integrated bindings that were handed to him out the backdoor from a shop going out of business.
Shady is shady!
Any shop owners or employees care to chime in?
Like I said, Good luck.
