    How many inches is it between the front of the cushion and the back of your legs? Looks to be about 1"-2". It does appear as though your footrest needs to go up or your seat down, I think that will solve your problem. Maybe you can temporarily duct tape something to the footrest to raise your feet up an inch or two just to see what it's like before going through the effort of a more permanent fix.

      1-shows position of legs
      2-foot positioning with shoes (usually I have the velcro tucking my shoes in at the front)
      3-foot positioning w/o shoes (the footplates does not support my feet)

      IMO the cushion is long for you, is the problem that your legs can`t go a behind for have your feet ok in the footplate, and your footplate need to be higher.

      Thank you in advance!
      Again, the cushion and the footrest height is part of your problem.

        How tall are you? maybe you need a smaller chair. I agree with the others your cushion is too long.

          Brianm, you seem to have good posture in your chair. Do you mind my asking what the angle of your backrest is?

            The space in between the cushion and the back of my leg is around 1". Actually, I tried a foam cushion for a trial period but with it, my feet popped out even more often than without it. You're right though...the footrest should be higher or the seat lowered.

              The seat cushion is "cliffing" slightly over the upholstery!

              Thanks for your suggestions! I need to alter my cushion.

                I'm 5'1". A smaller chair? To be honest, because of my most recent nightmare with a new chair that had new measurements, I'm afraid of making anything other than minor adjustments. ^^

                You and the others are right about the cushion size...thanks!
