fit check

Are the toe bindings suppose to fit over the toes or in front? I just got my boots & bindings and am making sure they fit okay.

What bindings are they?

Some manufacturers use straps across the toes, some(like Burton) use toe caps that go on the end...and then to really screw you up some have straps that can go on top or across the front of your toes as caps.

Convertible Grip™ toe straps with integrated lightweight webbing feature a tool-free centering adjustment; choose over-the-top or over-the-toe placement.


You can choose either with this binding. I personnally would go over the toe.

Never seen your bindings, but I'd just try to get the toe strap at a 45 degree angle or slightly more over your toes. I personally look for a hold that give me a good amount of downward force to keep my foot in the foot bed and a good lateral hold to keep my foot tight against the heel cup.

It does once again come down to a personal preference/comfort issue.
