Just a quick question on CCM vs Vapor

I was looking into the CCM U+08 after finding that I fail the pencil test miserably in my vapors, and they do hurt my feet a bit after some hard skating. I've broken the Vapors in, baked them and there's an eyelet that I can barely get the lace through. They fit fine when I bought them (always seems to happen). So anyhow, the CCM U+08. How is the length compared to the Vapors? I wear a 9EE in Vapors (could try an 8.5, but I might have no room at all). There aren't any CCM dealers, and the only one that does sell them doesn't sell wide.

In the end, I think my options are the Supreme, the U+ or looking at some GRAFs.

Length (size) should be the same. The heel and toecap are both more rounded than Vapors so theoretically, there could be some people who would rather go half sizes either way. If the Vapor is shallow for you, CCM is very deep; deeper than Supreme.

Cool! I literally failed the pencil test from the 3rd eyelet down to the mid/lower-mid foot, so I'm hoping the CCMs will alleviate that. Worst case scenario, the CCMs are too deep and I go to a Supreme possibly.

On a related note, I see that you're in Long Island. Are there any good hockey shops or places that sell pro stock stuff anywhere in your area?

The one I go to has an okay selection, but the people know nothing and my first pair of skates there were oversized.

Edit: The NY Islanders occasionally have Pro Stock sales.

Only decent place around is Amityville Harbor Sports. They do a good job getting you fitted.

I'll take you up on going to Amityville! The guy sounded pretty professional.

You bridge the pencil over the top of your eyelets and run it down like it's on train tracks. If it hits your foot around the top/middle eyelets, you usually need a deeper skate.
