canted footbeds aren't for everybody. I fucking hate them, so that's why I would never give a brand like K2 a try, since their entire binding lineup has built in cants.

Agreed that Union should atleast try to make it an option on some models as well though.

The toe strap fits me, and many others well enough to choose to ride them.

They didn't fit you. Tough shit. Sucks to be you.
Atleast you found some other bindings to fit you.

Alka, are you seeing how Nivek set up the toecap on the 32? Hilarious.

Size of the boot and size of the binding please.

I don't have the same binding set up, we're supposed to be the same? I like around 4 teeth showing. Alka likes none. This is a preference thing.

For the record, I'd still like to know the size of the boot and the binding to know if the boot is centered on the binding.

He must have forgotten that people have different size feet, and different sized boots. I was looking strictly at the toe caps, nothing else, since that was what the conversation was about, and those look fine to me. I ride them like that.
