NYCboarder but you def can use the 390 straps as toe caps... and i would recommend you use them that way. i switched to a toe cap on my rome targas and would never go back

conwayeast Cap strap isn't going to do shit to fix your problem. You need to look into insoles, such as superfeet or a-lines. If those don't work, then you may want to look into new boots. If the combination of both of those don't work, then I would look into seeing a boot fitter & having custom orthotics made up.

djsaad1 anywhere really, a lot of people seem to really like superfeet. Superfeet Premium Insoles

Make sure you get the right color though, different colors are for different feet. If you have a running store nearby or a good shoe store they can usually tell you what would be best for your foot.

paymon where can i buy a new footbed?
01-06-2010 09:27 PM
djsaad1 I would look at changing out the footbed first. If it's your toes it could be that your feet are moving too much inside of your boot and they are banging on the front. If it is the side of your foot it could be that you need a lower arched foot bed.

paymon thanks for the replies, I will look into some new boots.

MunkySpunk It's almost definitely NOT a binding problem, and there's a 99.99999999999999999% chance that a cap strap won't fix the problem.

Your toes should barely touch the front of the liner.

Salomon makes wide size boots. My buddy wears wide shoes and his Motos would start hurting about 20 minutes into the day. I pointed him towards the Salomon Synapse, he got them, and he boarded all day with me Xmas eve.

paymon I do have somewhat wide feet. I do not wear a "Wide" shoe but its a bit more wide than normal for sure.

edit- I just wore my boots and it seems like my foot it touching the tip of the boot within the liner. not sure if that's good.
I cant remember exactly where my feet hurt last season but If i had to guess, my toes or the sides of my feet.

djsaad1 Its more likely to be your boots than your bindings. Where exactly is it hurting?

redlude97 where does your foot hurt? Do you have wide feet? There are many things I would consider that could be causing your foot pain, but a capstrap vs toe strap isn't one of them
