Vans Cirros - don't fit burton bindings???

Right, thiss has actually made me join a forum as I can't find any other people with the same problem............

Anyway, I have Burton Cartel ESTs and have just bought some Cirros from Vans, pretty good setup i thought! The boots fit the footpad just fine (size 10 boots medium bindings), but the highback is too high for the little hook things on the back of the boots at the top. Which is stitched in.

I have even tried my 6 year old Freestyles and they're fine - basically the vans will not get 'snug' with he footbed due to the stupid handle things preventing them from getting flush. WTF??

Is anyone else aware of this problem? Hopefully there's something that hasn't occurred to little ol' me but at the moment I'm flying Saturday and need to make a panic purchase!

Once you physically strap in, you should be fine.

i did strap in, though obviously only at home. Seriously, the loops catch on the top o the highbacks what is that about? The best way to solve the problm would be to remove the loops as they re simply about an inch too low. Ive attached a pic - the loops are on he top left, what you would carry them with..........

i know it doesn't really help but this is a good lesson in not buying a binding without checking your boot fits it.

that said, i am looking at a picture of the boots now and i do not understand the problem. the handle thing at the back looks like it would just fold down or get squashed between the boot and the high back. fi you get really stuck you could just cut it off?

the pull thing that Vans uses is stiffer than you would expect and doesn't really go out of the way easily

it can cause problems with burton's skybacks

I'm screwed by the sound of it. Whats curious is this is a 'top end' kinda boot and burton bindings aren't exactly rare. What the hell is going on?

They are indeed extremely stiff and I don't really want to butcher my boots straight out of the box. A return is on the cards, I just find the whole situation ridiculous.
