Try NSI footstraps, designed by Adam Koch. 10 cm wide symetrical footstraps. Soft and good to your feets.

we have them as well and they are very comfortable. They provide a better grip and softer feeling.
At each side you have 9 holes for different sizes and angles.

I have large feet(high vrist), and also wear surfing shoes when kiting. I usually have problems getting my feet properly into the footstraps, and keeping them there. Are these straps so adjustable that I will enjoy them also?

I have the Wipika large straps on my Wipika Eclipse 159 and I can say they're great.
They SUCK your feet in! They're more confortable than normal ones and have more feeling;moreover they have great adjustability with 9 holes on each side;no problem for your foot shape!

Cheers

i use wide straps. use dive boots when i ride sometimes too. never have any problem with strap comfort. do sometimes have hard time getting foot in strap with boot on, but seems true for any strap and boot.

the most important thing about foostraps is fit (size). NSI's are confortable but a little too soft. I use them and others a little more rigid that gives you a more sucure feeling. Spend time founding the right size for you. (make a BIG difference).
