hi there!

ive recently bought NAISH APEX straps/pads. They are OK, but I feel that they are too small for me. My heel touches the elevated back and it kind of bothers me.

I was wondering if I have the pads set-up correctly - the position of the straps where you move them front-and-back. I have feet size 11-12 US or 44-45EU.

anyone has any tips on setting of those? Seems that they can only be set once you unscrew or at least partly unscrew the bindings? Thanks for tips!!

I have these same pads and straps and I am a US size 11 and they fit fine for me.

I wonder if your feet are far enough forward under the straps? You are corrft the strap width can only be adjusted with the pad off of the board. Try the max width and then loosen the front velcro to allow your foot to slidr deeper towards the front of the pad and see if this helps.

I'm size 12, and they definitely work for me.
I think you can open them up a bit?

It should work if you set the side walls as far appart as they will go, ie/ move the front ones to the front, and the back ones to the back. Then loosen them all right off, plant your foot on the pad in the desired position, and then tighten them up again.
I found that I do not need to have these straps done up anywhere as tightly as I thought I would. Initially I had them really tight and it was hard to get my foot right in, and I got some foot ache. I loosened them off a lot, and now they are super comfy again.
