CCM to Graf?

Found a good deal on some grafs and thinking about picking them up. I'm in the south and there aren't really any places to go try any on so I want to ask some Graf users a question. I fit a 7 in ccm skates, would grafs fit about a 7.5 most likely? Thanks!

I just went from 7.5 ccm to 8 graf. My toes were crashed in the 7.5 grafs and barely touching in the 7.5 ccm so it sounds like you have the right idea.

The grafs are going to feel a little strange the first day. I've gone back and forth with grafs and other brands for years and it still feels weird going back to grafs every time.

Make sure it's a Graf model that will fit your feet. Your good deal could quickly become a bad deal if they're not for you.

Make sure they feel snug and feel right. If the skate just feels okay, move along and find another pair.

thanks to everyone for responding, i had kinda given up on this thread because it sat with no responses for a while. the fit is great for sure, i have a narrow heel and it was always coming up in the CCM's but it is nice and snug in the grafs. skated on them for the first time last night at a pick up and holy ****, it's like i was learning to skate all over again. they just felt so incredibly different. im really going to have to spend some time in them in order to get a feel for them.
