Default Problem With Ride Capos

Basically I have a pair of 2011/2012 Ride Capos in Large and I use them with Salomon Synapse boots in US Size 11. Every time I strap in my boots, they seem to move away from the middle of the board (increasing the angle and increasing the "duck"ness of the angles - very hard to explain...haha). Does anyone know why this is happening?
thanks

Its just the way the straps are gripping your foot as you tighten them down and that you're boot is narrower than the binding.

thanks

we cant tell you if it will affect your riding. thats something only you would know. does your boot slide around in the bindings when your riding? if not then i wouldnt worry.

I had the same issue last year. F20 boots with capo. the capo large are narrow and i think that's and issue with it. part of my boot was on the frame but once strapped in mine never moved. i don't think there's much you can do.

in this case i think the boot is bigger than the binding. the synapse is a bulkier boot and the capo is very narrow.

thanks for the responses guys, just to get this straight though, will it affect riding and if so how much? (ie should i sell them for a loss and buy a different pair of bindings?)
