so I skate with very loose lace and i dont feel that I am performing 100% of my ability.
so, do you think one95s run little wider than Vapor line???
yes the one95s run wider, I snug my laces until I get to the top 3 eyelets then I start torquing them down and I use the loop style of tightening them to get them real tight. I have to make sure the tung is in the right place to make sure that it dosnt start to bite while I'm playing.

As for the arch pain that is usually from skates being a bit to big. I don't know what to say.

Try rebaking the boot and having some one who knows what they are doing lace them up for you. The eyelets will rip out of a baked boot if you don't lace them right when they are hot.
