I can't tight the NTT's enough. I keep feeling them big. I think I did the right configuration on the different adjustments. Not much place to make a mistake there.
The feeling on the Apex is much better for me. I feel the feet more wrapped and snug, but they get free when they have to.
Both bindings come in one-size-fits-all, so I don't have the wrong size.
I should have clarified my post, I have narrow feet but am a size uk 10/11 (us 11/12) depending on the shoe brand. you are narrow and 3 sizes smaller than me.
As for one size fits all I don't think this describes the NTT's fairly, usually one-size-fits-all t-shirts are sloppy on most people
to be fair to the NTT's they have multiple tracks to place the straps into (wide/narrow). The tracks also allow the straps to be placed closer to heal or toes. They have dual straps so you can tighten the tow side down more/less relative to the heal side.
The previous north bindings I had were sloppy and I never felt very connected once airborne or when speeding over chop. Now it feels like I have a new board.
My GF has an Epic Droid board with epics bindings, these are very plush air cushioned pads, and they go even tighter than my NTT's can't get my feet in easily after she has set them up (us 7/8).
Obviously if you have a chance to try out some straps, even swap boards with another friendly kiter for a bit. I didn't have that option, took a chance and ordered the NTT's best 100 quid spent on kite gear.

ignore the north track system stuff, I have standard 6" holes on my board, pads fit fine with normal slight duck stance.
