Deeluxe boots?

Anyone have thoughts on Deeluxe boots? Picked up 2016/2017 Empire (stiffer boot) and XV (Xavier de la Rue's splitboarding boot) on big discount. They don't have a huge presence in US, hoping some Euros cant help out with some experience.

They feel pretty good out of box, snug but comfortable, but the liner feels pretty soft so I'm concerned they'll pack out too big.

Biggest concern is the "Sectional Control Lacing". Looks like they could break relatively easily and you'd be boned if they broke, especially if it happens in backcountry.

@kimchijajonshim, are you more concerned about the laces breaking or the clip lock?

Had a set of Deelux Spark boots a few seasons back. They were great, no problems at all with the lacing. Would have been happy to get another set, but went for Salomon instead and pretty happy with that choice - they fit me really well since the shape changed a few seasons ago.
