Longer > Short
I have the Brown version of these.. the color and pattern reminds me of L&V. ha! but i like em.
I also got my boots for just over $60 from Salty Peaks in SLC. Much better than $130 + Shipping.

I had some trouble early on with the tongue of the boot forming the wrong way inside of the boot, causing some pressure points. Once i realized it was the inner boot that was causing the pressure, i removed it and simply formed the tongue correctly, and they felt MUCH better afterwards.
EXTRA LONG LACES... i have to wrap them around my boot to help with the slack. the laces cool easily be a whole foot shorter. Longer is better than short though.
