I had the same experience. I recently switched from Supremes to Vapors and found that I basically had to learn to skate again.
I first learned to skate and played a few pick up games in Supremes. They never felt right; too wide and too long. So I gave Vapors a try and found them to be a much better fit. After a heat molding and a punch out of a few spots, they're glorious.
However, there was a learning curve for me. I had to learn how to do most of the basics over again. It took a about 3 open skate sessions to get back to where I was. However now becoming an even better skater because of having a proper fitting skate.
