The Vapor VII's you'd have little to no problem in likely. However, they are a relatively narrow fitting boot - so depending on the width of your foot you may want to look into that.
Another good skate would be something from the Mission line....whether it be the Fly, or the Highfly...both are decent skates, and are soft enough that a beginner would be able to get the proper amount of flex out of the skate.
If you're looking towards a wide fitting skate...CCM isn't bad, depending on what you're looking at. I've always found CCM to be a very stiff skate in general however, Bauer and Mission to be a rather soft skate, so if you went towards the lower end of hte CCM line, like the Vector 4.0, or E-40, or even the lower end of the Tack series...452's ect...you'd probably be just fine.
Those skates that I mentioned are usually the skates that I'm selling to guys that are just getting into hockey/skating and are looking for something that is relatively not badly priced and somewhat of a decent skate.
BUT, if you do have a narrow foot, I'd definitely look at those Vapors...I'd say they would be among the best skate I've listed here....with, imo, the Vector following.
