    How narrow do these run? I have an average to verrrrry slightly wide foot, comfortable in a pair of CCMs.

    I've heard these all run a bit narrow, so I'm thinking I might have to go for the EE option instead of the D.

    Any complaints or whatnot, also?

    Also, I wear a sz 12 street shoe.

    I was looking at Grafs as well, but I'm not sure where to start with that.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    With Grafs you're more likely to find something that fits your foot. Grafs come in a wide variety of sizes.

    What type of CCMs? Tacks...you might wanna look into the EE...Vectors, you might be ok with the D. But this is assuming that the new Fuels run the same as previous Missions. The Missions I have feel in between a D in Vapors and D in Tacks.

    Okay so they run somewhat on the narrow side, I take it?

    They are a touch on the narrow side. Not like Vapors, but not as wide as Tacks. Missions run a size smaller (so go up 1 size) from Bauer/Graf sizes.

    Yeah, I hear the Missions run to shoe size.

    I've always been a CCM man so I'm looking for a bit of a change...

    When it comes to Graf's each model fits differently. You probably won't fit in a 703 or G3, but that's not to say all Graf's fit that way. You just have to find the right one for your foot type.

    I hear the Vector's aren't your normal CCM skate. I've seen some good deals on the Vector pro series.

    I have trouble with shoe sizes. I range from an 8EE to a 9.5EE in dress shoes depending on manufacturers. I *THINK* that CCM's run .5 sizes inbetween Bauer and Mission, but I am not completely sure. If you can, try before you buy. I definately like Mission asa company, they've been great to me on a personal level with warranties and solving issues. They're products also perform very well, especially recently.

    How long have you been in CCMs? I was the same way, CCM since the age of 11 and I'm 27. A couple of years ago I wanted a change and tried Tour - felt ok in the store, but hated them actually playing. Anyways, long storys short, you may not wanna change if you don't HAVE to. I will say this though, I think CCM is running larger nowadays. My old tacks from about 8 years ago are size 10.5 D, I recently bought a pair (same size) and they were bigger. So I had to return them and go down to a 10. And to be honest with you I could've probably gotten a 9.5 but the 10s work.
