Bauer skate width question

I'm looking into buying a pair of pro stock 60's at a really good price, but the only thing worrying me is that the width is CA. Does anybody have any idea what the C toe width might be??

Pro stock skates are built around a players foot (mold). even if you see them advertised as a 9 EE they will mot be the same as a retail 9 EE. be carful and try on any pro stock skates before buying them.

I have first hand experience buying pro stock skates.

Thanks for the response, I knew they would be narrow in the front given the C width description. I guess I was wondering if anybody knew a range for the actual measurement. I definitely plan on getting them baked if I decide to buy them.

Just so you know that baking the skate will not expand the toe cup or boot. You will need to take them to a skate shop to have them "pushed" expanded and toe cups usually only get dimples to accommodate bunions, or oddly shaped toes. Baking is for molding the stuff on the inside around your foot.

Like I said earlier it's a huge risk putting out money for pro stock skates if you have not tried them on.
x60s at a good price I'm sure ate more than $100 bucks. If you feel like you want to risk that much money on skates that you may never use it's up to you.

I found out the hard way buying pro stock skates at a leafs sale for $150.00 CAD and I tired them on first.

Good luck what ever you do.

If you're looking for an actual measurement it cant really be done. Width is also dependent on length as in a C for a size 3 is narrower than a C for a size 11.

Not always, in fact most pro skates aren't built on a mold. You can tell which ones are because there is no felt under the insole in a custom molded skate.

You will almost certainly do better with lower end skates that actually fit your foot properly than higher end skates that you never try on, which are thus unlikely to fit your foot properly. I would absolutely take an x40 that I knew was the right size and width over some random pro stock x60 that might not fit well.
