Skate sizing q?

For the life of me, I don't know what the E and D stands for the life of me. I'm thinking about picking up a pair of 5Ks and I'm getting a half size smaller than my shoe (I should wear a 9.5, but I wear a 10 since I have wide feet), but I just didn't know what the E and the D stand for. Thanks for the help guys.

E is wide D is normal width.

I would def try the skates on first, as Reeboks run wide anyways,

Odds are you're probably a D unless you have a really wide foot. Just go to a skate store or proshop and measure the width of your foot.

Don't get them online if you don't know if they actually fit you. All skates fit differently and some brands might not suit you at all. Also, if you only go a half size down the skates will still be too big for you. It's better to get fitted by someone at a shop and buy it there.
