skate sizing

hi i need help on skate widths. my feet arent EE wide but they arent normal width either. some people tell me that some brand skates are a little bit wider thatn others. i have bauers now and i think they are a little too narrow because my feet hurt at the sides sometimes. does anyone know how the widths of the skate brands run? thanks

How often do they hurt and where? It might be as simple as getting them stretched.

Generally speaking, CCM and RBK's are wider then Bauers. I am told the NBH One90 is a different fit then anything else in the Bauer line. With Grafs it depends on the model.

All skates are different as, so if you gonna switch, go try them...I mean like stick says, one90s are different but then factor in the Vapors which are a bit narrower while the NBH Supreme(outside of the one90) are extra deep and wide.

I think Mission, CCM have an E width..but the lasts they use are different so that must be factored it. So it's not as simple as I need an E width. But if it's just the sides, try loosening the laces even.

Agree. Skip holes if necessary and use grippy laces to control the tension where you need it or don't want it.

Get over to 'modsquad hockey' and all your answers will be solved.

I asked about the sizing of a pair of Grafs that I wanted, they got back to me and now they are perfect. Don't forget that all skate brands suit different people, and you should mention your foot type (high/low instep, high/low arch, wide/narrow forefoot and heel etc).

sometimes they hurt on the side if i skate for longer than 10 minutes. i need skates that are just a little bit wider than my bauers. in some narrow running shoes its a little difficult to put them on. i know my feet are a little wide. are ccms wider than bauers?

Tacks are/were, vectors aren't. Supremes(excluding one90) are wider than Vapors. Easton and Flexlites are the widest. RBKs are similar to Tacks but with a wider heel.

I have wider feet as well and use the RBK 5K pumps in E. I was told RBK/CCM's E is equivalent to other brands EE. If you can try them on, thats the best thing, if not, try to at least try on a skate within the brand (as most tend to be similar in shape). If you are on a budget, loosen the laces.

I bought a second hand pair of bauer rollers and even though they are a size bigger (9D) than what i wear on ice (8E), they are tight on my feet. I don't play roller that much so i think i'm gonna stretch them out a bit or loosen the laces.

They then jump to EE as well. Easton has an E. I have Easton 10 E for my 11&1/2 EE feet. Took a while to break in and I started the laces without lacing the closest 2 eyelets to the toes, snug everything else, easing up slightly on the top set of eyelets. Don't be afraid to try this, leaving out eyelets, it can be hard to leave them loose enough otherwise, and you can include them later as the skate breaks in if necessary.
