Going from Easton to CCM Skates?

Hello there, I'm thinking of getting CCM U+ Reloaded Skates.

Okay after reading a couple of reviews on these I'm a bit scared. I'm hearing a lot of "If your feet fit CCMs...". Is there anything weird about CCM skates? I'm currently in Easton SE6 Size 8.5Ds, anybody know if they will be completely different than 8.5D reloadeds?

I found SE16 skates in 8.5R for about the same price as the reloadeds, but if I'm in SE6s now then I'm 99% sure SE16s would be a very similar shape, and it's just not worth risking $300+ for skates that won't fit.

So has anybody gone from Easton to CCM or vice-versa? How did it feel?

If you need any additional info just ask!

Thanks!

Try them on first. Different brands fit different types of feet, and some brands may make a great skate that just doesn't fit your foot. And sizing also varies going from brand to brand. If you stay within the brand (as well as skate line), the size should be the same.

Yeah I wish I could try them on first, but it's not possible as my closest sports store that actually carries any high end skates is ridiculously far away, so I just need as many internet reviews as I can if you know what I mean.

I've been from Bauer Vapor VIIs to Easton SE6s and it wasn't bad...Just had to break them in as is normal.

You need to be fitted. Vapors and eastons are different, and both of those are low end skates. Low end skates typically don't quire mirror top end stuff. You mention both of those skates, and I'm concerned that one of both isn't actually fitting properly. Happens all the time, people think they have a great fit, but they really are wearing something completely wrong for their foot.

Now, the U+ is very moldable, so you would have a margin of error, but get fitted.
