    Any info is greatly appreciated. I am preparing to buy a new pair of skates. My only problem is what size I need to get. I got meaured yesterday and the guy told me I'm right on the border with CCM's as far as width on D and E. I tried on both a D and E and honestly couldn't tell much of a difference. My train of thought would be to lean towards the D ,but they didn't have the exact style I was looking for. They did have it in an E. Would I be making a mistake and just going with the E's? My last skates were a little big on me and this time I want to make sure I have a better fit. Thanks:)

    Well...you can make a small skate a little bigger, but no way of shrinking them

    The smaller the better. If the D's were comfy, get them. Besides, they'll naturally stretch out if they need to.

    What feels better. Which one will feel better after heat molding (if they are a model that can be heated) which one will feel better after breaking period (you will gain more space then between 1/8 to1/4 inch) How old are you will your feet flaten out as you get older? These are just a few of the questions that I ask and that run through my head wil fitting skates in our shop.

    Yeha , you can always get your skates heat molded or stretched a little. So if the D feels fine, go for it and either mold them or get them stretched or punched out if you got any hot spots.
