This worked well on my Carve 111.
Re: footstraps

the DaKine brand is generally accepted as ****, they have several options including the newer X-Lace version, which provide a external adjustment system, a little loop is exposed and adjustments are simple, been out a year, dont know about durability vs the elements, like sand. Would be a serious option for you esp with booties. The rest of the DaKine take a look at online- the Contours are v.good. Other footstraps of note MFC , and HotSails Maui, both ****.
