Need Help! First Time Goalie

Hi Everyone I am making the switch to goalie and have zero idea where to look stores don't even have equipment in stock near me so I have to order everything sight unseen.
http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1078657 I saw this thread but had no idea what to look for amongst all these links.


Here are some of the things I am looking at (Note I have leg pads, catcher, blocker)

Bauer Elite SE Sr. Goalie Pant
http://kohogoalie.com/models/koho-re...-goalie-pants/ Koho Revolution Sr. Goalie Pants
Bauer Classic Sr. Goalie Pants
Bauer Performance Sr. Goalie Chest & Arm Protector - '12 Model
Sher-Wood T90 Sr. Goalie Chest & Arm Protector
Koho Revolution 586 Sr. Goalie Chest & Arm Protector
Vaughn Vision 9400 Sr. Chest & Arm Protector

My skate size is 7.5 EE yet a Bauer Nexus still really hurts A LOT so I dunno wtf the problem is with my feet I've had them measured in several places and they are definitely a 7.5 EE but they are wide in a weird place so I may need custom. I hear goalie skates are naturally wider though and don't think it'll be as much of an issue hopefully. Graf's I noticed list wide instead of E/EE. Any idea if wide means EE or E?

I am a large in everything goalie pants, chest protector, helmet, etc. I don't want to spend more than 250 on a single piece of equipment b/c I'm still very much a beginner and don't want to waste money if my weight loss results in a size change. Helmets may go up to 350.

Hope my links and size information helps you to help me in recommending equipment.

Thanks in advance
