Wow, that's a nasty wound. SPs are excellent but not available in the U.S. unless ordered from Czech Republic

Wow. That is nasty. I would seek out softer bindings. Never had an issue with Cabrinha or Flysurfer bindings. Very comfortable.

this looks good. Do you know if it works with other footpads or requires their footpad ?
The footstraps fit pther pads, I use them on Shinn pads. I used to get similar abrasions from the fopotstrap, the SP straps are really good and you can loosen them enough to get 5mm, Size 12, booties in winter.
I believe the Shinn pads are made by SP, I’m not sure all brands will work. I have the SP pads and I love them. Easy shipping to USA

If there is someone around with a Crazyfly board with Hexa footstraps, stick your foot in and see.
I can't imagine getting my foot so far in them, it would rub as per your photo.

The top part of the strap can be very 'deep' on some straps.
