which bindings

I started snowboarding a couple years ago and finally got a board last year. I got a cheap set up from my local shop (if you can call it that- i live in kansas and we don't really have any), but the bindings really hurt my feet, so I am going to get some new ones. I really like the capstraps and am thinking of burton. I was wondering which bindings i should get for mostly freeriding. I may do some park this year, but not much.
Here are my options:
07 burton p1's- I've heard they are very comfortable and good all mnt.
07 burton CO2's- haven't found as much info on them, but they have a better response rating.
08 burton customs- cheap
08 or 07 missions- cheap again...
what would you guys suggest? I'm wanting bindings that will last me quite a while, that's why I'm thinking the higher burtons. And I'm not like a complete newb, I'm actually pretty good.

It might not be the bindings that are hurting your feet, it could be the boots...

well, i had to tighten the bindings so much that they hurt, and a capstrap would solve that for me, but you can't just buy a capstrap and put it on. I have some decent boots also, they're zuma's.

Tighten them so much that they hurt? If you have to tighten them that much you're doing something wrong.

life IS good.

If you have to tighten your straps so much your foot hurts, then the the boots don't fit. You should be able to ride your bindings not tight, and not feel pain.

i really don't know then. after a few hours my feet started to hurt where the front strap gets tightened. I wonder if i do need new boots then? I do want new bindings because the first time i used these, one of the straps fell off. I lost the bolt on the strap and had to replace it, but i am still having to tighten the replacement every few hours.

i don't have any heel lift, and its just the front foot. I know I'm getting new bindings and that should be farely soon, so i was going to check the boots in the new bindings when i get them and maybe i'll have to get some new boots also. It's kinda hard for me to get boots though, cause I'm a size 14. I tried 13's, but they were too small.
anyway, just for now, which bindings would you suggest, then maybe after i get them, i'll be asking about boots.

have you considered flow bindings? they hold you onto your board really well and you can find them fairly cheap if you shop around online.

i won't go with flow bindings, i really want some step in bindings. I think i've figured out that i'll either get some 07 p1's cause they are supposed to be the most comfortable.
