My two cents...
I recently started taking power skating lessons. I too have difficulty stopping (to my left) but also the instructor noticed i was skating on the inside edge of my left skate. If I thought about it I could force myself to keep upright if you will on that leg.

In relation to the original question I had a $175-$200 pair of skates. I mentioned to the instructor that my son had a pair of very good skates and we are about the same size foot. I tried his skates and they made a world of difference for me.

I think though that the power skating lessons would make the biggest difference of the two.
