Are my bindings too big for my boots?
I've been having some pain in my toes when I board. I'm going through some things it might be and I think I ratchet my bindings down pretty hard. Today when I tried to not go so hard I thought I felt uneasy. Maybe this is just what I'm used to but something I was thinking is; are my bindings too big for my boots?
I checked when I got home and when I put my boots into the bindings before I tie them up - if I push the boot all the way to one side of the binding there is a gap on the other side, like they don't fit snug. At the back (heel) the gap between the boot and the side of the binding is basically the width of my thumb. At the front this is the width of a finger. So I guess when they are in the middle there is about half this space either side. Does this sound a lot and is this why I end up tightening them so much?
What I'm trying to figure out is is this amount of space normal or does it sound like my bindings are too big for my boots?
PS - dont ask about brand names are sort of both 2nd hand / non brand things!
