Even different models from the same manufacturer can fit differently. My old skates are CCM Pro Tacks, size 9D. My new skates are CCM U+ 06s, size 8.5D. Both fit great front to back with good heel lock. According to the chart, based on my shoe size, I should be in a size 10 skate.
You really can't know without trying on.
Thats pretty much what I figured, I was just hoping someone had personnel experience with the two brands
I wish they could just set up sizes that every company would go by and that they would just stick with that, ha but thats a dream that will never happen.
Its a good thing though cuz it is keeping me from just buying skates off the internet when I shouldn't be spending the money
