New boots are 316 mm versus old boots at 315mm boot sole length. Do the bindings need to be adjusted or forward pressure checked for such a small change?
New Boots 1mm Longer - is Binding Adj Needed?

Yes, because the actual boot sole length can vary from the printed number because of shrinkage out of the mold.
Additionally, if you have a Salomon binding with toe wing and toe height adjustments, those would need to be adjusted as well, actually a more likely scenario than the forward pressure.
Forward pressure plays a greater role in release values than people think.
Which binding do you have, and do you have the old boot as well?
I could probably tell you if the forward pressure is correct.
