Getting new skates - recommendations please!

Hello rink rats,

the time has come for me to part ways with my Reebok 6k's I bought 6 years ago when I started playing. They are absolutely worn out. So I need to look into a new pair. My budget is about $400. I'm only 5'8", so I heavily rely on having quick feet and explosiveness. I love to play the puck down low in the O zone so maneuverability is important. I also, when playing wing mostly, get break aways because of my speed so forward speed is a must as well (sidenote: I'm not a cherry picker by any means. I've learned to anticipate the transition well and break past the D).

My vitals:

5'8"
175lbs
Mid-width feet - low, but definitive arch.
Play 2-3 games a week, and a free skate every so often
I'm intermediate


I've been looking into the Bauer One80's because i've heard some great things about them (Bauers). But I've never had another skate on that wasn't a rental or my 6k's.

Thanks for your help!

Edit: Added more vitals.
