Help with Burton Freestyles

so i bought a pair of the Burton freestyle bindings. i like them but the toe straps are a little annoying. i have big feet (size 13) and when i go to use the toe strap over the tip of my toe, it is stopped by a chunk of plastic that wont let it go all the way down. so i am asking if anyone knows if it is possible to swap out the whole strap. i know u can take part of it off but i need the plastic strap that connects to the binding replaced. haven't made it into a shop before the season ended to ask so im seeing if anyone else has ever had this problem and if they fixed it.

here are the bindings

Idk about freestyles for sure but I know you can mix and match toe straps on most bindings. If you have a toe strap already just try it I guess

What size bindings are you using? I'm having trouble visualizing the problem, Is the issue with them not going over the the front of your foot (Like a cap on your toes)? The burton freestyle are designed to go on top of of the boot rather than the front.

When I said if you have a toe strap already I meant a strap from an older set of bindings that you know you like the strap for. Maybe ask a friend if you can test his straps and see if theyll bolt on to your freestyles?

Burton bindings have two possible positions for the toe straps on the baseplate. With a size 13 make sure they are in the most forward position, if they are in the rear slot they may not go down over the toe of a size 13 boot. You have to set the position of the toe straps before mounting the bindings to the board.
