Default 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!

Those toe straps can be used as a cap.

Sorry if this sounds retarded but what do you mean?

The bindings didn't come with any extra parts.

Rotate the front strap down towards the front of your foot ?

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?).
