It doesn't put the pressure over the entire toe the way Rides does. It puts a little but not enough to be considered anything other than cosmetic? I don't know. 390s are a sick binding. Only gripe I had was too soft of an ankle strap but that's just based on preference. Not sure why they decided to change either. Not that it's really bad. I just don't think they made it better.
