I wear a size 13 shoe. Regular shoe but in work boots I take a 13 wide. How do I determine what size skate to go after. I actually have some game used skates I bought a few years ago. They are 12.5 but lack the insoles. Upon trying them on they are kind of tight around the toes. Probably not worth trying to use these I imagine? I've read how they are usually smaller than your shoe size but the 12.5 I have was pretty uncomfortable just sitting. And without insoles I'm sure its a different feel. And size probably differs with companies too.
