I'm sure this topic has been discussed before but my search was not effective so please bear with me.
Looking for footstrap recommendations for larger feet, size 12. I do wear booties.
Thanks

I wear the same size booties.
DaKine contours are great and hold their shape very well.
If you like velcro adjustment, DaKine Supremo is good too.

I'm a midget at size 11 and booties, but you can skip a hole.

Even barefooted, I gotta skip a hole or two for my 13s. Any brand thus fits my feet, so I care infinitely more about easy adjustment and comfort. I have zero use for any strap I can't adjust offshore, w/o any tools, in 8-10 seconds, so those stupid straps wrapped in velcro covers are useless to me.

5'8" tall with size 13 feet. Now that's unusual.

I don't understand what "skip a hole" means.

Look at the photo on this page:
http://www.peconicpuffin.com/the_peconic_puffin/2008/04/fanatics-footst.html

The footstraps are screwing into the outer set of holes on the outside, and the inner set on the inside. For the back straps, you choose a wider set of holes.

Ok, I think I understand now. Anyone try the Dakine Proform external adjustment straps?
