I think he's talking about the front part of the toe strap. You want it to cap over your toe right? But the front part is sticking up? Give it time, the more you ride the more the material will conform to your boot and it will all come together eventually. It's just because its new and the material is still rigid. Hope this helps

The excess on the ladder strap doesn't have to be flush with your boot. Having it sticking up doesn't affect ride-ability, but it can be annoying when it catches on things, like when you're skating, etc.

I took mine off the binding, soaked it in hot water to soften it up and wrapped it around it around a plastic bottle that was roughly the diameter that I wanted it to be. Put a bunch of rubber bands around it to hold it in place and in shape and filled the bottle with hot water. I left it like that overnight and it "heat-molded" to the shape of the bottle.
