it is often done, some decks its easier to do it with than others, i believe u can adapt them to work with walking boots, usually i think its a case of bringing the straps closer in and bulking out the ankle support with roll mat foam.

By the way the board in question is my old scrub comp pro 109. i know its old but its such a smooth board for carving big fast hills.it has trampa dampers gi vegas hubs but pinched the ratchet bindings n heel straps off it for my other deck.

Providing your walking boots are reasonably sturdy, there is no need to pad out the binding. Just simply drill an extra hole in the ankle strap.

See this thread.

aye, i remember now, hit me up next time u ride this area, and join the mountainboard derby group on facebook.

Not sure what that scrub deck is, pics? basiclly what u need is the 4 hole bolt pattern, some boards already come with it like the older mbs pro 100s and the old comp 16s, whereas newer boards dont.

So the way round this is to take a drill to your board. But then if its somthing like a RCC or whatever your opening the core to the elements and it could start to delam (i think)

they work fin but see if you can ditch the high backs. i modded my board for them and rode with combat boots no problem they are much cheaper then mountain board bindings i got mine for 12$ after shipping on ebay it was nice because the base plate allowed my feet to be at any angle i wanted, much more comfertable and more options for a stance. when you drill it place the entire binding down and see how well it fits the deck. i made the mistake of drilling right in the midle of where my old bindings were but the snow board binding we cockeyed because of the tip angls so i had to redrill and shotern my allready too short stance. the controle is amazing though i loved them.
BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!! BEWARE!!!!!!!!! the high back enema. c if you can cut them down or take them off. also if it isnt already you may want to pad the rear heal retainer. mine was aluminume and wore blister into the backs of my heal

Like Jasper said. Your going to need to drill your board. Not familiar with the deck, but would imagine being an older Scrub it will be fine.

Once you work out a nice comfy width of stance. Just drill your holes nice and square. Like below.
