Default Boots Slip Forward in Bindings

I have a problem: My boots slip forward in my bindings. I have a rental board, and the bindings are cheap no-name bindings and they're a toe strap design, not a toe cap. At the end of each day, when my boots, bindings, etc. are wet, the strap doesn't grip my boot and it slides forward in the bindings.

I've tried tightening the straps (Both ankle and toe), and it doesn't solve the problem. Now my boots slip forward AND my foot hurts.

Is there any way to fix this? Or should I buy some bindings and put them on my rental board? I just started this season, but I've been out 7 times on this board, and I have a pretty clear picture of what I want to do - mostly freeriding on groomed resort trails, no backcountry (at least not in the east), and maaaybe a tiny bit of park at the end of the season.

sounds like your boots are way to small for your bindings? might need more info like boot size. or maybe some pics of what the boot looks like inside the binding. could just be really cheap stuff but usually it will have some sort of brand on it.

Sorry, just checked and my bindings are Solomon Speedfit bindings size large. I have Solomon rental boots size 10.5, so they *should* fit the bindings very well.

There are things you can do to most bindings to adjust for the specific boots you are using, but you haven't given us anything to go on.

What have you done exactly to adjust the bindings so far?

Any chance you can go back to the rental shop and get a different setup/bindings for the rest of the year?

A lot of bindings have a position adjustment on the ankle strap so you can move it forward and back on the binding. If it's too far forward (towards the toes) it might not hold the foot back against the highback as well as it should.
