Burton Mission Bindings, How tight can they get?

I purchased Burton Mission bindings with the traditional cranks on them, when tightening them down, I can tighten them down until they pop and will refuse to tighten anymore. I can feel no pressure on my foot while in the boot, however the boot is considerably snug. I would like to think I should be able to cut off the circulation if I tried hard enough.

Is this a concern with the binding? I have no read anything about this kind of issue. I am wondering if I should return them or contact Burton.

If they're tight enough why do you need to get them tighter?

The thing is: I know they are fitting relatively snug, but I cannot physically feel if they are snug or not.

Just make the ankle strap shorter, I have the missions as well and its super easy to adjust. You can pretty much do it with just your fingers.

If I made it shorter it would not apply even pressure. There is more strap left to crank.

Whats your boot size? Whats your binding size?

Missions are probably one of the most reliable, east to adjust bindings out there. I've been riding Missions the last three seasons. Unless you're just being really picky (no offense), there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to adjust them to fit your boot...

Strap shape has come a long ways. Be stoked you cant feel the strap. It means its a great fit for you foot and boot and is distributing the pressure as designed.

Its a good thing you cant feel it, as long as its holding your boot down.

If there is more strap left that needs to be cranked in order to feel tight on your boot, then yes you need to go shorter. But if it is centered on your boot and feels snug then leave it...

I wear a 10.5 Ruler, That has 'Shrinkage' so a 9.5 or 10.0 footprint? I have the gas pedal all the way out and the ball of my foot is still pushing down the lip of the binding just barely though.

I got the Burton Hero board and was considering a wide board instead, something like the hero instead of the hero wide. The waist width seemed to be okay from whatever formula I used with my stance. But I still have a little toe hanging over the board after I pulled the bindings all the way back in the ICS channel. So on top of downsizing the bindings and getting rulers instead of a boot like the K2 Darko, I got the smaller sized bindings that should barely fit.

I have a friend who need bindings but wheres an 11, I might buy a pair of Large Cartels and give him my missions. But I did a lot of research on the missions and they are what I wanted I thought. How do they compare to the Cartels, or are the Cartels just about the same, just a tad more expensive?

That's more comforting I suppose, as quoted below it supports that I am just picky.

That's the issue, I cannot feel it at all.
