I will have to check out a variety and see if any have extra wide toe caps or anything similar.
It sounds like you and the same foot as I do - high arches, wide foot.
I bought a pair of Graf's and I had to have them customized to great lengths to fit my foot.
They had to stretch them out quite a bit as well as modify the Graf insoles to make sure the foot fit right.
Up till now, I've been skating in CCM's but I always had to get them bigger to accommodate my arch and width.
Chances are you'll have to spend between $350-450 to get skates that fit properly.
