Let's keep the focus on the FLOW bindings. Go back and look at the video I posted... you can see as I tighten the strap (around 45 seconds), the boot no longer slides forward as much... so when the highback flips up, it pushes IN the back of my boot, buckling it a little bit (throughout the video you can see the "imprint" of the highback on the back of my boot). That's what I'm talking about.

Hi,

I looked at that. At 45 seconds that would be considered a very loose fit. That level of thightening should not be causing internal discomfort. You had asked if discomfort from tightening was common and at that level of tightening I would answer that it is not common.
