wrathfuldeity there are different sized toe caps usually s/m/L...your's looks to be way too big...wrong size...go down 1 or maybe sizes. It also looks like your binding is the wrong size for the boot and perhaps you tried to compensate by getting a longer toe strap, idk....It all looks funky....take your boots/bindings with you to the shop.

Chef Jer Toe and heel overhang should be equal. i.e. you should be centered on the board.

in addition with sz 11 boots I would expect some toe overhang there is none. Does that seem right, or now way to much heel over hang???
How much overhang should I have on the toe ?

I'll throw a picture up of what I mean by forward position if you dont understand what i'm saying. I crank them down to the very bottom and they're halfway up by the tip I hit any park feature or heelside carve. Any help for keeping these things in place without going out and buynig a new cap ?



Pics dont want to embed so heres the mofuggin links. Cap is barely on center and no teeth showing, both strap and cap are in the furthest back channel (meant for cap strap)

Your toe straps are way too long. Adjust them 1 hole shorter (at least).

john doe Are your boots centered on your board? An 11 in the L/XL shouldn't have trouble fitting. Move the heel cup forward until the toe strap works right then mount the binding so your boot is centered.

I pushed the heelcup forward and moved the binding itself back and its solid now. Never really thought about the heelcup.

cozmo Ur front strap is in the most forward slot. I have Union contact pro's and a 11.5 boot, coulndt make it fit and feel right till i set the from strap in the back slot. Try reading the manual u got in the box If ur cranking down to the very end ur setup isnt correct.
Edit: and start with the heelcup setup like Kaka said ^^
