Well, for an adult, finding proper skate size is simply if you kick your heel back a bit in the boot and stand up, your toes should feather or very lightly skim the toecap.

Hmm well you're absolutely right about not looking for entry models, even with your frame (no offense haha, being practical here) the boot would break down quite easily on lower end skates. Mid -end boots or upper mid could work well.

I highly suggest you find a few more close options in terms of a good hockey shop and make a trip of it. Even though it may be 2.5, 3 hours away, it will be worth it in the long run if you manage to find a proper fitting skate. Enjoy the roadtrip!
