It may be a matter of semantics, but, in most bindings the toe is fixed and the heel is mounted on a screw thread and can be adjusted front and back. Many bindings can take up to 10 mm difference in boot size, but, going from the general statement to a specific boot & binding has to be done on an individual basis. A ski shop only needs to know the BSL to mount the bindings, but, want the actual boot so they can perform release testing.
Do you have a pair of boots that you will use on the skis in the interim period, or, are you just trying to be ready to go when the boots arrive?
@blm337 can you tell us the specific bindings you will be mounting on the skis.
