When to buy new skates

I just had to replace the blades on my Graf 709s. They are 5 years old and I originally chose them because at the time of purchase I had difficulty finding in-stock skates that properly fit my foot. (Small feet, high arches)

At the skate shop yesterday I started wondering about getting new skates. But I'm not sure I need them. I have no complaints with my Grafs but you never know how much better new skates might be. It's not like I've tried many brands. I skate pretty regularly, aiming for 2-3 times per week.

But with the cost of $ and time to break in, I'm tempted to just stick to what I have.

Any thoughts?
