Bindings & Foot Pain

Hey guys, I am a novice boarder and am just about to go on a trip to the mountains this week. Something that I remembered from last season was the pain I was having in my feet. Probably the #1 thing that really bothered me the entire time. Ive done a little bit of reading and found that something like a capstrap could help?

I have the Rome 390s and I think you can use the strap as a capstrap or a toestrap, I think... So would using the strap as a capstrap help my problem slightly or should I invest in another pair of straps. Would the burton capstrap be compatible with my binding?

I just really want to get rid of that foot pain somehow if that's possible.

Thanks!

yes you can, but are you sure that is what is causing your foot pain?

where does your foot hurt? Do you have wide feet? There are many things I would consider that could be causing your foot pain, but a capstrap vs toe strap isn't one of them

Its more likely to be your boots than your bindings. Where exactly is it hurting?

I do have somewhat wide feet. I do not wear a "Wide" shoe but its a bit more wide than normal for sure.

edit- I just wore my boots and it seems like my foot it touching the tip of the boot within the liner. not sure if that's good.
I cant remember exactly where my feet hurt last season but If i had to guess, my toes or the sides of my feet.

It's almost definitely NOT a binding problem, and there's a 99.99999999999999999% chance that a cap strap won't fix the problem.

Your toes should barely touch the front of the liner.

Salomon makes wide size boots. My buddy wears wide shoes and his Motos would start hurting about 20 minutes into the day. I pointed him towards the Salomon Synapse, he got them, and he boarded all day with me Xmas eve.

I would look at changing out the footbed first. If it's your toes it could be that your feet are moving too much inside of your boot and they are banging on the front. If it is the side of your foot it could be that you need a lower arched foot bed.
