I have a very similar foot- D width, but B width heel- and I've been really happy with the Vapor VIII. My sneakers are usually a women's 6, and I ended up with a junior 4.5 D skate. I've had them almost a year and they're still in pretty good shape (I'm 5'1", 130ish). I can't overemphasize how important it is to go to a reputable shop where they know how to find the right skate for your particular foot.
