I wear a 10-1/2 skate and my Vapors are a D width...or should I try a different brand? I tried on a pair of CCM Vector 06s, but was told that they would be too stiff for me as a beginning player. I also tried the Graf Supra 301, but I couldn't afford them. Any and all advice would be helpful.
I think the One75 is going to be too rigid for you. The last thing you want is a skate you'll never break in or will restrict your form. You want ample support but not so much where the stiffness of the skate doesn't allow you to develop a proper stride.

Look a bit lower in the model line. The One55 or Vector 04 might be a good option, provided they fit correctly.
