As far as I know they just come in youth/senior. Regular senior ones should be fine.

I agree, but we have no idea if those will help you not look stupid anymore

Depending on the brand the sizes will differ.

CCM is what I've seen more often at pro-shops. They run:

Child - 20"
Youth - 24"
Adult - 28"
Pro - 30"

I'm guessing we can rule out the first categories. The Adult is usually good for most people under 6'2" or so. And seeing as how you are only 5'9" (still a good deal taller than I), you would be fine with the Adult size.

i use a intermediate stick and size 5.5 EE skates. it's not uncommon.

didn't mean to sound like i was talking down to you, just thoroughly explaining everything. better to explain too much than too little sometimes. no harm meant.

I am 5' 8", 130 lbs and I wear the Adult (28") socks. They are fine. You probably shouldn't have an issue with them.
