My take on the foot straps - I have an iS 111, which has the same straps. On my first 5-6 outings, I couldn't get the straps big enough for my winter booties. However, after continued use, I was able to adjust them larger so that they eventually worked well.
When I changed to my summer booties (slightly smaller than the winter ones), the straps kept getting larger (streatching), so I adjusted them smaller. Now they are just right and continue to stay at the current size.
Should we have to go through this process to get the straps set correctly? Probably not, but in time, they should work just fine. They are quick and easy to adjust, Starboard just needs to find a solution to the streatching.
