It's not a matter of "not getting toe-drag", you need to have your bindings centered on the board. Take your boots, put them in the bindings, and then take a tape measurer and see how much overhang you have on both sides of the board. The overhang should be equal, if it's not, it's going to make one or both of your turns feel funky-chicken.

I got new boots, and was just not feeling the goodness. Then I realized with the new boots I had 3/4 of an inch more overhang on my heel-edge, which once I corrected that, everything clicked.
