Default Flow M9 toe pain

So I got out and rode my new flow m9's today. this is my first pair of flows and my lead foot is now getting alot of pain on my little toe. feels like it is getting crushed. I have the straps very loose and it makes it a little better but not great.

Anyone had this issue? what adjustments were made to resolve?

Is it the boot?

Try centering the strap, one of the ratchets might be pressing from the side.

Try to move the toe strap to a slot further up.

It's ok. Flow's kill my feet too. With that said, its probably your boots.

Schultz probably rode the Flites

With that said, it is your boot. You didn't have issues before because traditional straps clamp on your boots much tighter than Flows.

If it is somehow your Flows, you probably have the outside toe strap too tight. Loosen the that outside strap a couple of notches and tighten the inside strap a little tighter.

You don't have to tighten the straps evenly. Also, which M9s do you have? If they are 2009 or above, you can adjust the straps like normal bindings.

Post up a picture of your boot tightly strapped into the bindings. Someone else will likely need to take the photo. The fact that it is only affecting one of your feet indicates that this is likely a setup issue, but let's find out for sure.
