    Do note that longer the cable less will be the power delivered from end to end so it may cause some issues.

    USB 2.0 cable can have length of 5 mt. and usb 3.0 can go upto 3mt. With that in mind Op can make his purchase decision. Just make sure to get a high quality cable like amazon basics or bluerugger.

    If somehow Op needs even longer cables then look for active cables with separate power input.
