If the Mission one is about as good as the Wicked series Id go for that in a second. My W3's are great, Id suffer the break in period.

Again, my local store has all of these, but even if they feel good there, I dont want to end up getting a skate that wont last.
Well, with a low arch and a narrow foot the vapors will hurt your foot on both levels, and the supremes have a higher arch but are at least wider. that generation of them will be pretty shallow though.

The RBKs probably would fit you, but the 3k is going to break down in no time. It's a low end conventional construction skate, that's not going to last at all. Also, the RBK non composite footbed has been known to sag pretty badly on heavier guys.

A higher end RBK or an easton are probably your best bet in terms of fit. Unless you can find an old pair of high end tacks. They shouldn't run you too much if you can find them.

I really don't know much about the missions though.
