I'd encourage you to go try on skates and buy from a store. Even if you get a GREAT deal on a pair of skates on the internet, you'll be pissed if they don't fit your foot properly.
Understand that every brand/model of skate from Vapors to SUpremes to RBK, CCM, Stealths, Synergies, Grafs are all shaped different to fit different feet shapes.
Long story short, don't try to fit a square peg into a circular hole.
Here is your best advice. Try them all on, then buy what fits. Do not buy something because you like the brand, it's cheaper, etc - get what fits
foot. For that amount of money you'll be able to find a very good skate.
