Question about CCM skate width...

I've been looking at getting a new pair of skates to replace my 10 year-old 852s. Seems like there's some pretty good deals from some of the internet retailers, so I'm thinking that may be the best way to go (and save some $$).

Here's my question - my CCM 852s are size 7.5, width E (and here's the but). BUT, I'm wondering if I should be in a D instead of an E. I'm pretty sure 'D' is the standard width, and my feet are far from wide, and I'm wondering if I should be ordering a 7.5D instead of the E this time around. I want to stay with a CCM skate (done me no wrong since I started skating 20 years ago), so I'm okay with ordering a 7.5 online - just having doubts about the width issue.

Any advice would be much appreciated!

The old CCM Tacks and new CCM skates fit different. Best to go try them on some where. And if an E fit why order a D?

As the poster above mentioned, try them on. However, do remember that a skate can be stretched slightly and punched out/worn in but you can never make a skate smaller. Try on a D and an E at a store. The new U+ skates can be baked and re-baked so you can have them bake the skate and then get a feel for the fit. You might find that an E is not the same as the old Tacks you had. I believe the newer skates are not quite so wide in certain areas of the boot. Again, fit is preferential...go try them on.
