I used these Mission skates for several years:
They were top of the line at one point, but can be had for dirt cheap now if you can find them in your size. The boot is insanely stiff (which I like), and I convinced myself that the torsion bar on the holder helped make the skate even stiffer for better power transfer. I am 6'0" and fluctuate between 185-195 lbs. so I like a really tough boot, and those did the trick for me for awhile.
That said, I bought a pair of Supreme One75s a couple weeks ago and they blow the Missions out of the water. I always thought my Missions fit fine until I tried on the One75s. The only word I have been using to describe how much I love them is "revelation".
