Size 6 is a senior sized skate, except for Mission that has size 6 as a Junior sized skate.....if anything, try on a 6.5 sized skate first to see how that feels. You may not need to drop down the whole full size, but maybe only a half.

Junior sized skates will be as protected, depending on the model. If you go low-end then yeah, you will be exposed, but if you go medium to high end, you will get the same protection as an equivalent senior sized skate.

A smaller size may affect your balance, as your chasis/blade size will be smaller, but also that could positively affect your balance and agility because you may have a better fit, and thus more control over the skate. Give it a try and see how it feels
