Strap for upper part of boot?

My issue is that I have big feet but somewhat small calves. So I usually can not get the upper part on my boot tight enough around my shins, it only last a couple runs and then I need to tighten them again. This would be pretty easy to do if I could find boa boots that fit my feet, but since I can't, I am wondering if anyone makes a strap that I could put around the outer part of my boot so that it always stays on my shin?

It isn't that my feet are too big for boa, it's just that I haven't found a boa boot that fits comfortably with my oddly shaped flat foot.

if your feet are flat, there are insoles for that.. I think you can have them custom molded to your feet.. might want to look into that??

i have flat feet and i ride the 2010 Burton O-zones.. i think they're amazing (and i don't really like burton stuff) after the first 2 weeks and they were properly broken in they're soooo comfortable, and i only wear my little cotton running socks in them and i stay warm all day.

**edit** now that i've read your first post, you may not like the O-zones, they're really soft (flexible).. and i like my boots/bindings to give me lots of room to move..

the powerstrap seems to be exactly what I am looking for, I am going to try that first and then maybe the eliminator. The reviews on the eliminator seem to state that it keeps you more upright, which could be an issue.

Vans makes the Matlock which is a great boot cross over having BOA from the instep down and a nice power/cuff strap at the top for a 2 zone closure. Very Nice!
