Bindings and Toe Cup question

Hi, I have a set of K2 Indy Bindings.

Is there anywhere I can purchase toe cups? Do toe cups feel more comfortable then standard straps? Are they worth it?

Thanks!

Sorry if this sounds retarded but what do you mean?

The bindings didn't come with any extra parts.

I've ridden last year's Formulas, which are nearly if not totally identical tech-wise to this year's Indys and I think the non-cored K2 "universal" toe strap sucks balls as a cap. But this year's Sweaters have been awesome for me as a cap since they cored out the toe strap.

Word.

I just decided to try it, its a tight fit, I think I will just use it as a normal strap, over the foot.

i know you can buy burton cap straps and its a worthy investment, so much nicer going around the toe then over..it would be hard for me to go back to a regular strap..

While on the subject...I used to have some Burton P1's that fit fine with toecap. I now have some Customs for my park board, the toe cap fits really funny, lop-sided (yes I adjusted them for length via the screw) anyone know why they'd be like this?
If I go one screw hole shorter, they're too short, one longer and they're even more lop-sided.

Are they Burton-proprietary, or can you stick them on any binding? Just an FYI question, I'm not really looking to upgrade (or downgrade?).
