regardless of what brand you go with, the best way to get a good fit and the best result is to choose a company and give them a mold of your foot and have them build a skate that fits your foot perfectly so you lose nothing in your stride... mind you, it costs a pretty penny to do so but my friends stand by their choice and i may do it at some point when i have a few extra hundred dollar bills to spend
I've heard MLX skates do a great job at molding to the shape of your feet as well. Coupon code hfboards50 or youtube50 for 50% off on them.
I actually got a pair with the coupon but my foot is too wide (after they specifically say not to worry about width since it will mold to your foot). I sent them an e-mail so they told me to send a trace out of my foot with the dimensions and they're going to make a custom boot for me. Pretty sweet customer service after getting an awesome deal!
