Wow, you've been spoiled on great skates. The S500 is great, the 8090 is a classic, and Grafs are Grafs.
As for the OP, suggestions would be CCM/RBK, IF your foot is truly wide. However, you should definitely try as many near that price point as you can. The Bauers can fit a wider foot than you'd think. Eastons are not very consistent and are usually quite narrow, but if you can find one that's good in fit, definitely go for it. And if you're one of those lucky guys near stores with Missions... I'd DEFINITELY recommend them. They make some great gear, and their Fuel skates are phenomenal.
