You can't say for sure if you're 1, 1.5, 2, or whatever sizes down from your street shoe. It depends on the shoe, the skate, and the foot.

For instance, I have a pair of workout shoes that are size 8. Just bought them last month. Just bought a pair of dress shoes for work that are size 9.5. I have shoes anywhere from 8 to 10.

In skates, I wear a 7.5EE in Bauer but 8.0D in Graf. Grafs tend to be a bit smaller.

What you want to do is try on every brand in every size. You want them as snug as possible without causing pain. Just remember after you skate for about 5 minutes your feet will swell a bit. But you can always loosen up skates or get them stretched.
