Foot pain!

Hi, guys, ok so here is the situation.

I have been riding a combo of burton freestyle boots (07-08) and ride Rx bindings (07-08) for maybe a total of 20-30 days of full riding. The past 3 or 4 times i have gone have been rather painful.

I'm not really sure what the problem is because the boots and bindings were a super comfy set-up up until now.

My left foot (i'm regular) will start to have a pressure point on my pinky toe and really hurts later in the day.
My boot i have noticed around the toe box area has gotten soft, or does not hold up so well against pressure and indents a little when i put pressure on em, so i was wondering if the boots do not hold up well against the bindings cap strap pressure and that pressure is then transferred to my toe?

I have also started to have the problem of the right foot toe strap slipping off when i ride. even if i crank it down, it still slips.

Is it time for some new boots because the toe boxes have gone somewhat soft?
or are the bindings somehow the problem causing my foot pain?

(btw this is my first pair of bindings and boots)

Too Fast!

Maybe not the ideal solution, but those Rides should have convertible straps. You can either wear them on the toe or across the top of the foot. Try them across the foot. You'll lose a little responsiveness, but I'd rather give up a little responsiveness than ride in pain.
