My current footstraps are removing several layers of skin from my big toe!

Any advive on some new footstraps available? Those wide footstraps look comfy, but are the all ajustable? The new dakines, they dont look wide, but any advice for my poor big pinkie?

Thanks, ATM

I think the best footstraps out there are the loose wide footstraps, http://www.loose.it, they are rigid, but yet have a lot of padding, easily adjustable as well. Great straps,

Hi ATM,
duct tape around you favorite toe will do the trick, until healed.

Thanks guys, probably get some fat straps, but will sacrifice some toe hairs with the duct tape until then.

well, the best bindings are normal footstraps with pads: that would save your toes.

without wanting to make commercials: the best bindings are DaKine 3 D Slim Footstraps, not hte wide: wiede footstrapts do not work with shoes during the winter time!

I ride slinghot plates with DaKine Straps:

I am very happy with it.
