Default Burton Boot Defect??

Should a smaller sized boot(Women's 6.5) have fewer hooks on the lacing than a larger size(say size 8)?? I bought a pair of 2010 Burton Lodi's last month and just realized that there is only 2 hooks on the boots instead of 3(which is what is pictured on their website and other retailers' sites). I didn't noticed too much of a problem until this last weekend when I was wearing them for a whole day(as opposed to the 3-4 hours I normally wear at my local hill) and how loose they felt by mid-day.

I called my local retailer and they girl I talked to said some of the smaller sized Lodi's have two hooks and that it was normal. She's going to call Burton to double check but I just wanted to see what you guys thought.

Personally, it doesn't make sense to me to have fewer hooks for a small size since the size of your feet have nothing to do with the how snug your boot will fit from the ankle up. Right now there's a huge space between the liner and shell and I feel like I have very little control in them.

Update: So I called the store back and talked to a manager. He said they called Burton and the size 6.5 is only suppose to have two lace hooks(which would be fine if they went right up near the top of the boot because I could probably get a more snug fit). The manager explained to them my problem of how I could fit a hand between my liner and shell(can't tightened them more than that as the shell is stiff) and apparently one of Burton's designers is looking at them more thoroughly now. So no resolution so far. I told the store I bought them at I would gladly pay the difference for a higher end pair because at this point, I just want something that fits properly(my ankles are just rolling around in these right now).

Are my expectations too high??!!

When my boyfriend laces up his Burtons with the three lace hooks, the shell sits flush with the liner(or close to). I can't get mine anywhere near that.

If Burton intends to sell a product for their smaller sizes with two lace hooks, they should make a note of it somewhere or have a picture of it because if I had ordered these online, I would expect nothing less.
