My feet are terrible. They're extremely wide and extremely flat. I have orthodic inserts, which I did put into the skates today and helped a little, but if I get this job I'm going to have to get a pair of wider skates, because my feet couldn't take the pain of being crushed like that 40 times a year.

Which brands can I order wider skates from, and what are their websites? For the record my shoe size is 11.5 6E(US). How much would a pair like that run me compared to the average one?
Pretty much every popular skate available on the market is available in a wider E width. Most LHS' don't keep E width skates in stock, but you can get them online easily or your LHS can order them for you.

Regular skates come in a D width, you need an E width.
