I don't know, you tell me you own em.
Do yourself a favor and don't buy skates online. I play hockey with a bunch of guys who work at a hockey shop in my area and they have tons of horror stories about people who bought their skates online.
Go to place that can fit you properly. Plan on spending some time there. When you buy online you have no idea how the skate will fit. If the boot can be heat molded you have to take it somewhere and pay them to do it for you. Then you have to pay to have your blades radiused and sharpened. All of which are usually free when you buy from a local hockey shop.
