Default Binding Pain?

So it took me a long time and a bit of cash to get my boots comfortable. This season I upgraded my board and bindings with an eye to grow into the equipment. For the bindings I picked up a pair of Union MC Metafuse, I liked the idea of the lightness and they were rated stiff which matched my board and boots. I needed to return the first pair to size up. But I have to say after a number of adjustments I'm now getting foot pain that I never encountered with my old (05-06?) Burton Cartels, green and white. I've got absolutely no beef with the craftsmanship, I just think it might be a bad fit. I have super wide 4E Fred Flinstone feet and I'm just wondering if either the lack of padding or sizing could be the cause. Have any of you ran into this and especially if you have a wide foot what was a better alternative? I would like to stay with Union, but would choose otherwise for more comfort.
