Boots are 9.5, contrabands are 9-11. I watched the ride setup video and it did help some. I actually moved the side strap in so it's snug against the boot. That actually helped bring the strap over some. It's pretty close now, still off just a little bit, but I can push it over so it's centered.
What color are your nitrane straps?
I'll probably just run these this year and maybe pick up some traditional bindings next year, maybe some Ride EX's.
The Nitrane straps are red with black webbing on the V. The bindings are a neat idea, but there are just too many boot incompatibilities. I just realized I could probably ship the straps to you for like a couple bucks USPS. I wouldn't charge you. If you want them just PM me. I'd be interested to see how they work out. It might very well be a viable option for people with "incompatible boots".
