You can always do the hot water trick, fill your tub with REALLY hot watr and let your bindings sit in it for a while, then put on your bindings and just chill in the tub for a while then get out and keep your bindings on for a while longer, let them air dry with your foot still in them. This will help break them in. Another thing you can try is shoving a soap bottle or something that is oval shaped into the top of your boot and just let it sit there, that should stretch it out a little also. Also, the more you ride and break them in the less they'll hurt. Another thing is that the binding might just be too small for your foot, or too large. I had a pair of 01 Highbacks that were a size medium, everything fit perfectly except for the toes. The toes were really tight, I found when I went to upgrade my bindings (03 belmonts) I had the wrong size, what was actually the right size for me was the mini-mediums. What was happening was that the footbed was too long and my toes were barely sticking out, now my belmonts fit perfectly. Just somehting to think about, maybe try going to your local shop and trying on different sizes just for kicks and giggles and see if you don't see a difference. Hope this helped, good luck!

*sorry, about the bottle idea, you'd want to shuv it into the toe (not the top of the boot like I said above), cause thats where you're having problems. Again good luck!

i have splits also, and had the same problem, what i did was take my bindings apart and cut holes since that didnt have any adjustable spots, it works great and i havent had any problems with ripping or anything.
