Each brand has it own unique fit. Do yourself a favor and try on a few different brands. Your heart may be set on Bauers, but your feet fit better in CCM's....or vice versa.
The same goes for size. I wear a 6.5 RBK (could use a 6.25 is they made one) but a 7 Graf.
As for weight. Unless you get something with lead holders or concrete soles the difference will be minimal.
For the guy that said his shop said they liked the XXV's over the XXXX's. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say they have a crap load of XXV's out back. Just a guess though.
Not saying the XXV's are a bad skate.
Buy what fits the best and remember. If they hurt in the store walking around, they will be worse out on the ice.
