What level of skates??

Hey All,
Love this site. Just registered and posting for the first time.

I'm looking for some insight to what level of skate I should get. I just started skating earlier this year when I bought a pair of Vapor x4.0's. Unfortunately they are sized too big for me causing blisters. I'm looking to get fitted by a reputable shop in my are and i was wondering how much more advanced skate I should move up to as a beginner/novice.

I was thinking either the vaporX5.0 or the x6.0 or what felt right in those price ranges up to $450.

Like i stated earlier, I just started skating with a LTS program then did a awesome 10 week skills session over the summer and I'm currently enrolled in a skill session (power skating focused) through December. I aslo started playing pick up 1 night a week. As you can see this is my first year skating but I plan on sticking with it so should I go up to the vapor 6.0 level? Or is that type of skate too much skate for a novice like me?

Thanks in advance for your replies!
