just go to your local store, that's the best way to do it. you cant really tell whether you like a boot until you actually try it. i thought i wanted full-tilts but then i went to my shop and i ended up getting spks, just try. as for bindings i'd suggest rossi's or markers.
For bindings, read the sticky at the top of the page. As far as boots go, everyone's feet are different, so it's very subjective. The only way to find the best boot for you is to use a good bootfitter and try a bunch of different ones on.
