How much smaller are you wearing you skates?

Rule of thumb is to go 1 to 1 1/2 sizes smaller then shoe size.

Which do you go with and why?

Also, any idea where I could find a new Bauer ONE55 in a 9 D new?

Thanks.

I wear an 11 and my Vapor X:30's are a 9.5D, so 1 1/2. Too bad you don't live in St. Louis, a few of the LHS around here still have the One55's in stock.

I don't really understand that rule. I wear 12-13 size E-EE shoes (depending on brand), but my Bauer skates are size 10.5D (though I could probably fit into a C size boot)

I wear size 12E shoes but my skates are Nike Bauer Supreme One05 size 11R. It doesnt make sense, but the Bauers fit my wide feet well.
I tried Eastons in size 11E and they were way, way too tight.

9 or 9.5 shoe, depending on the width (I have narrow heels and wide toes).

Been using Vapor XXV's in 7.5EE for 2 years, but they're too big. Just got Vapor XXV's in 7.5D off CL last night, they seem better but heels are still too wide.

Saving up for Graf 735's in 7.5D...

8.5 shoe

7.5 in my new Bauer Supreme One75's, 7 in my old CCM's

i have weird feet, and even though my CCM's are falling apart, they fit my feet so well. I'm not sure i'll ever toss them.

I have super small, but wide feet.
9 in normal shoes
7.5 EE (well widest I could get) in a one75 skate. I find the supremes are bigger fits than vapors.

My shoe size is 13.5 and I wear an 11.5EE to 12D Bauer skate size. The 11.5EE skate for my left foot only I need to scrape out the toe cap so my toe does not touch the toe cap too much.

I need custom made skates but themz are some $$$ I think my left foot is almost but not quite a half size bigger than my right if that makes sense. It has been a nightmare my whole life buying skates so I try to as little as possible.

Yeah I'm sure if I could spring for custom skates it'd likely be AA/D with 7.25L and 7.75R with a wide toe cap or something ridiculous.

Size 13EE shoes. Size 12W (Graf) skates.

I could probably go 11.5W, but I like a bit of room in my skates.

Any particular reason why?
