Need some recommendations for new pads and straps. Size 13/14 with a fairly wide foot.

Never ever really found a combo I 100% liked...

Naish apex straps don't quite open enough and either my toe is hanging over front or heel over back lip.

Don't like the feel of cabs h2

North NTT are mostly good but I have broken I few of the bases

What else should I try

I have H1. Don't like em, cheap n nasty, H2 was too restrictive, just tried slingshot pads didn't fit great either. Also found Naish to tight. Went with Axis traction plus. I'm a size 10,5, some shoes 11. Photo is for scale.
Axis use a poron base and neoprene straps with the two Velcro straps and the 4 internal fingers like most of the other companies. They do look like an old school strap.

I've found them really good so far, used around 10 times. Never came if whilst in the air but can kick out if I need to.

I'm US12-13 in sneakers and the Axis pads for me are nice too. I like straps quite loose, and they're just "long" enough...

Tried the Airush pads? I've got fairly big feet and i have a cm or so of clearance either end. Comfortable enough, not great, however 99.9% of shoe shops in Australia don't even stock my size so i'm not even in a position to complain!
