I think that would probably be too tall. I think something between 146-149 would be better.
As for boots, you should probably try a few different sizes, they will probably be close to your shoe size. Boots should be snug, your toes should barely touch the front, but your heel shouldn't move. A little bit of movement is okay, but it you're heel is sliding around then the boot it the wrong size.
You'll probably go with medium binding
