You can try to make the footstrap smaller. You should only be in there with your toes.

If its still to far in, them you will need to have someone put in more inserts.

Hi,

The strap positions look fine to me.

I have written that board and it's never been a problem.

Your straps should have multiple holes which will allow you to adjust the size.

If that's not enough, use a soldiering iron and burn new holes.

What is your shoe size?

If there are 2 screws at the moment in each end of the strap, you could use one in the centre instead and that would move the strap out about 1/2". You could use a footstrap anti-twist system to stop the end twisting or you could use two screws and there are parts you could use to clamp the end of the strap with one screw in the centre and the other outside the edge of the strap.
