A few issues.

I'm not too sure if this is the right place, there are a few different questions, and this is viewed a lot, so I'm putting it here.

Problem #1, Very sore toes.
What's different from last year is that I got A)Better fitting boots, and B)Toe caps. I was thinking maybe it was the toe caps, but after a few runs of the terrain park, my feet start getting more or more so, particularly on my leading foot (left), on my pinky toe. Any ideas on this? Kicking my foot to the inner side of the binding (they're a bit big (the bindings) but I have to do with them)?

Problem #2, Tweaked Knee.
All of last year, whenever I went on my knees or even sat down, I would get this sharp pain in my left knee, I just ignored it but now its escalated to this: I'm running along, when Im tired I stop, and I can't run anymore because of the sharp pain in my left leg, I can hardly walk when this happens. I read on another persons topic that this could mean a wider stance? But I'm very happy with my setup right now so..... Any thoughts?

Problem #3, Rotating on Rails
I can do frontside boardslides and noseslides, and backside boardslides, nose slides and tail slides. (working on frontside tail slide tommorow), how can I get into a buttery rotation. I was thinking maybe the easiest would be frontside nose slide into backside nose slide, any ideas?

Thanks in advance, I may come across something else I forgot later.

I'll let others comment on 2 and 3, but for 1 I doubt that it's your toe straps. The toe 'box' of your boot should be hard enough that the toe straps don't actually change the shape of the boot. I find it more likely that your toes are just too tight in the box. It can be a real pain in the ass to find a really good fitting boot, since decreased heel slippage will usually come with more toe squishing
