Burton Freestyle Bindings

So here's my setup K2 Darkstar 160 2007 with Large Burton Freestyle bindings and Salomon Brigade boots size 10.

My first time riding on this setup and i had a real problem with my right binding. i noticed alot of movement even when i made sure the binding was super tight. I just wanted to know if it was more likely that the boots are a little too big or the bindings are too big with the size of my boot. I think there is a little movement in my boot but it's mostly in the top of the boot. Any suggestions would be helpful.

have u tried adjusting the straps? u can make them tighter or looser by the screw that holds the strap to the binding...there should be like 2-4 adjustable lengths on both the toe and ankle straps. the binding/boot sizing is ok 10 size boot with large bindings should be fine.

no. i bought them at a small local shop and they waxed, detuned, and set everything up for me. I knew there was a way to adjust it. I just tried searching in the forum and couldn't find what I was looking for.

what are some good choices for a mostly freeride binding? I'm still learning some of the basics and eventually I want to be able to do some freestyle riding, but for now I'm just doing freeride stuff.
