Default Sore toe - binding / foot angle?

Hi all,

I get a really bad pain in my toe on my lead foot. It comes on 1-3 hours into boarding. It gets so bad I have to stop for the day. I've been to the doctor and got an X Ray and no fracture. So is just down to pressure from the boots or bindings or both.

I plan to rent boots for a weekend (think mine might be too small). I'm also going to try and rent either flow bindings or the Burton toe ones to see if this helps to remove the pressure from the area. I also plan to use a thinner sock and make sure my tails are clipped...

I've a few questions:
1) which bindings would you say are best to try - flow or the ones like burton capstrap around the top of the foot?
2) my current stance is 18/-9. Should I try to reduce the angle of this front foot, might his help?
3) would the angle of the highback matter? Think is about 15-20 degrees on the 2nd setting of about 5 or 6 (strange bindings)
4) are there any other ideas I can try? I guess it's the boot and binding but just want to try as much as I can. Getting sick of days cut very short!
