should i fix my binding angles?

when i strap in, i find that the angles that my feet point at arent exactly aligned with the angles my bindings are at, so the one of the sides of my boots on each foot will be somewhat against the edge of my binding. is this an indication that i could optimize the angle of my bindings further?

This means there is too much play in your straps. If you strap in while standing up, try sitting down and aligning your feet correctly, then apply the proper amount of strap coverage so your foot doesnt move. The less your feet are aligned with your bindings, the less responsive you will be. You might never notice an issue, but when you're in a situation where an ounce of pressure toe or heel side means everything, you wont be able to perform.
