Just to add, I completely solved my toe strap slipping issue. I have size 9.5 Burton Hails, but they have shrinkage so they are super low-profile. I went with the L/XL Bosses in case my next pair of boots aren't low-pro. I had to minimize everything and still experienced toe strap slippage.
What I did was set the toe straps into the back position. Normally, this is meant for over the toe usage. However, putting the ladders into the back position and maximizing the straps a bit, you can still wear the strap over the toe like a cap. It fits slightly differently, but this method locks the straps in. Worked like a charm.
I still think the Ratchets and forward lean dial need improvements though. I can care less about the paint.
