Graf has different skate models for different foot shapes, so in that respect they are very different from all the other brands. If you are going to wear Grafs, you need to make sure that you get a model that is designed for your foot shape or you will be sorry. Even the right Graf is notorious for being hard/painful/longer to break in than other skates. The wrong one will be a torture rack.

My exception to this is if you have an extremely narrow/low volume foot that you just can't get any other brand to fit, you can probably go right to the 703 or G3 Graf models. I am that foot and I wear a 703. I like them, but they were an absolute ***** to break in.

They also have a more aggressive forward pitch compared to CCMs and, especially, Bauers. If I could get a CCM skate to fit my foot, I'd wear them over Grafs.
