Is there a way to make my bindings fit tighter

I have vans boots size 10.5 and mission bindings size large the binding straps are as small as they can go but I need them even smaller so that I can make the straps tighter when I'm riding is there a way to fix this?

For your boot size you should use medium size mission bindings.

surprised that 10.5 boots can't fit into size L bindings, no matter who the manufacturer is...

Is there not some adjustability on the non-ratchet side of the strap?

to OP. maybe you can adjust your boots more forward to have a bit more toe hanging? otherwise you would have to get different bindings.
the picture does seem like your boots are sitting pretty far back in the bindings. I would move the high back base forward.

You could also move where your ankle straps are mounted on the binding back a hole. It likely wont fix it but hey every little bit helps right?

I can only see the ratchet side clearly in the picture.

Usually, there's some kind of adjustment that can made on the other side (where the "permanently fixed" ladder strap attaches to the padding)

It's how you get the padding centered for different boot profiles

This video is for Union bindings, but look around 0:45 and 1:25 mark and see what he adjusts

if you look at the other binding the strap is attached to the last hole on the non-ratchet end.
