Skate Help

Over the past weekend I was helping with a hockey school in the area, and my right skate seemed a little small. This is the first time noticing this. I currently have Bauer one70 skates, size 10D. Thinking I may need a new pair that are slightly wider. Are there any skates on the market that are wider than the Bauer one70s, without going in to EE sizing, as it is just my one foot.

i use one70s cause i got a wide toe and a wider mid foot.

Apparently if you need a wider skate you should get eastons.

I was told this as well, but I'm kind of hoping to stick with the Bauer brand

You might try having them punched out a bit before you go buying new skates.

Yes have them baked, and if that doesn't fix the problem have the one skate punched where it hurts. I've had this done to my skates. It's easy and free to have a skate punched if it's too small but if it's too wide you need to buy new skates.

Skates have been baked, not sure if there is anywhere near me that punches skates.

I've been told at my LHS that Bauer Flexlites are made especially for wide feet.
