Can you confirm the type of straps? Some straps have a thinner outer layer, those wear out fast.

68 kgs / 150 lbs, 4.0 to 5.0.
5.0 really if I need (which I do) 16-27 knots.
4.5 has been working well for me so long as I have 19 solid knots.
4.0 when it's strong and still fun.

Booties tend to stick more than bare feet and may not require the fit to be as tight or narrow. If skipping a hole doesn't work then maybe you can use asymmetrical washers and use the thin side in?

Rubbery type straps (instead of webbing) tend to break after a while.
The consensus seems to go towards the Dakine Primo.
