I tried to slip my feet into my new bindings, and they are extremly tight. My feet were hard to slide in, but I figured that could be because they are not wet. My toes turn purple in them, but they seem to be the right size. Any idea on how to make them better? They aren't necessarily tight across the toes, but across the top of the foot.

There are a lot of tricks people use to break in their bindings. If you do a search, you should find plenty of tips. I assume that's what is going on. One tip I have heard that may work in your case would be to put the binding in warm water for sometime, then take them out and leave a beer bottle in the toe, with the neck facing out, that should help. I've never done this though, I've always just broken mine in by use. As far as getting into your bindings, they should be wet, and even use a binding lube. Some people prefer shaving cream or just soap... If you can't find any of the other threads on break in, I'll write down some of the other tips I've heard, and I'm sure others will too.

I just did a real quick search, you'll be looking for awhile I think to find anything worthwhile... The idea seems to be getting something to strecth the binding out when they're not in use. With a little creativity you should be able to find something to fit wherever you need it in the binding. I have never done any of these, this is all what I've heard work for others. I would try not to stretch the binding much more than is needed, I think that it may not make it fit as well as it could later. Also, have you tried adjusting any of the hardware on them? What kind of bindings are you using?

I'm not sure exactly, they came with my Liquid Force Omega 139.
