I have Crazy skates. I bought the ones with the higher ankle because of the heel support. I like them but I might recommend the shorter ones unless you specifically want extra heel/ankle support. They're more affordable than Bonts or Antiks and you can stick the whole skate (wheels and all) in the oven to heat mold them. I'd also highly recommend Rollerbones wheels.
That is good to hear. I was looking at the DBX3 or DBX4 boot but liked that the DBX4's have the option to pick the stitching color. I guess I will have to see if I can get my hands on a pair to try and figure out the right size.
