Throw any brand or model bias out the window right now. Go try on all the skates your local shop has and find out which ones fit best. Try on all different brands, all different model lines and, if you have the time, different levels within each model line. If there's multiple skates that fit perfectly then do some research on those two lines and narrow it down further.

You're not going to get a 'bad' skate from any of the current manufacturers. There is no better or worse skate for agility or balance. You can always customize your blades to fit your style of play, don't let the marketing make you choose a skate geared towards one style of skater or the other.

What is your budget for a pair of skates?
