Why didn't you just order a new toe bridge?  Have you ever used toe buckles?

havent used them before

the new toe bridges are 35$ while these were 10$

and i find it a pain in the ass to do the toe ties and these look a lot easier

Well... it will be a different feel to say the least... but just google search Jonas Hiller Toe Buckle... he's about the last one to still use them. I have a couple pics below but you may want to see more...

Its going to be a lot different from what you're used to.  How did you even break a toe bridge? lol

( @BadAngle41 - just quoting you to get this pic in; not addressing you as the dude contemplating leather toe straps)

Agree with others here - I don't think this is the way you want to go, @Max27. The primary reason they are still available at all, I suspect, is to repair older models that were originally manufactured with them in place. While technically possible, I doubt the intention is to fit them to modern pads.

Moreover, someone who windmills while sitting on their own goalie stick probably shouldn't be emulated... ever.

You're right, a 45 save performance against Team Canada in 2010 should never be emulated. ;)

As a Canadian, that's absolutely correct; no goalie should ever have 45 saves against Team Canada. It's rude. xD

More fun to take the picture out of context in this case, so yeah - I did that. Good call though, @coopaloop1234

I removed my toe ties and switched to buckles due to an over rotation problem. It worked for me, YMMV.UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_1667f.thumb.jpg.4c191a9ed1936c114263971d78055f47.jpg

To @Lucky Pucker's point, you won't have the same management of slack you had on your toe bridge, and it will be less forgiving on your ankles, knees, and hips... not to mention how it may effect how the boot sits on your skate and everything down stream from that... knee landing etc.

Heroes are born (with buckles), not made (of toe ties).

i wanted something more consistent, and i find leather straps for everything are super consistent 

and its a long and weird story 

my hd toe bar peice fell out ( left it exposed subbing in a ball hockey game and the hd foam fell out and i didnt know and the ref picked it up and threw it out) and it was the exposed leather, it got suck when i was walking on the bench (we split thr games half and half w my goalie partner) got caught on something and the peice ripped in half

Do yourself a favor and get Pro Laces or a similar product. Easy to install, even easier to attach to the pad.

the leather toe bridge peice ripped in half

You should probably try and consolidate your posts into one post instead of posting five times in a row.

I'm telling you I really don't think you're going to like the toe buckles.  I think you'd be better off getting these and these and calling it a day.

if the toe buckles do not work i will definetley get some prolaces along w/ a new toe bridge. wanted to try the toe buckles for a while and theyre super cheap so i decided to give them a try. interested to see if i like them or not. hope i like them. lol
