Everyone can play hockey, if you haven't found the right skate for you, you simply haven't looked hard enough. There is a skate for everyone regardless of the shape of your foot. The Graf 709 is a very wide skate to begin with and you can get it in the even wider width which is extremely wide, it's also a very deep boot and is by far one of the least stiff boots on the market with a LOT of flexibility. It's got all the great Graf technology in it but was designed for players just coming off foot injuries and could not comfortably wear a regular skate, you should definitely look into the 709: http://www.grafcanada.com/graf_produ....asp?itemid=28
