The main thing to stress with skates is the arch support, it will NEVER break in for you.
High arch: Bauer or Mission
Mid arch: Easton or Graf
Flat foot: CCM or RBK
It's always best to go slightly narrow as opposed to slightly wide, as a boot will always stretch out, but will never shrink in to meet your foot. Lastly, length... You will need to sit down, lace the skate up totally, and then give the heal a SOLID slam. When you're sitting down, you shouldn't feel the very tip of the toecap. However, when you stand flat footed, you should just barely graze the end.
Good luck all, and try on more than two pairs!
