Mission skates sizes are in US size, Easton uses a common Canadian sizing system.
Your skate size with exception of mission usually is 1 to 1.5 size smaller than your shoe size. if you are using US shoe size.
With that said the UK size compared to Canadian skate size charts would be hard for most of us to give you good advice besides try on skates and see what fits.
Skates should be tight or snug but no pressure points. As far as toes touching the toe cap you are not growing at this point and the toes should just feather the toe cap (Slightly touch)
I wear an 11 EEEE US size shoe but my current skates are Bauer vapor XXXX size 9 EE.
Hopefully A brit will chime in here to give you some advice.
Good luck and keep us posted on your hockey adventures.
