Tacks fit wider, flatter feet. Vector are narrower. I believe Tacks are deeper fitting also, but I'm not sure, so don't take my word for it.

You are right that the Tacks are slightly deeper than Vectors. But Tacks have a narrower mid foot (plus higher instep) and narrower heel than the Tacks. In the toe, they are both the same -- in fact all RBK and CCM skates have the same toe.

Use this info as a guide for fitting skates at a store, don't buy online based on this.
