It's all personal preference.

My feet have very high arches and because of it I can only wear Bauer/Nike skates, I simply cannot wear CCM's at all without getting severe pain in my metatarsel due to there being virtually zero built in arch support. CCM skates are good for people with flat feet, Bauer skates are good for people with medium to high arches. I love CCM, the Pro Tacks are extremely high quality, but I just cannot wear them because of my arches.

I've heard that the Reebok skates will have an almost identical fit to the Vectors, so I definitely wouldn't be able to wear them.

When I was younger, I used to only wear CCM skates but now that i'm older and my feet are fully grown and whatnot, I have to wear Bauer skates due to my high arches.

As far as protective equipment goes, it's all personal preference and finding the perfect balance between protection and comfort.
