    Need Help W/ Picking Skates for Wide Feet

    Thanks for the suggestion Bure. Mind if I ask if your 705s were in wide ? I actually just ordered a pair of Bauer Nexus 1Ns in 8.5 D. I did a ton of research and these skates have to get shipped from US to China so I played it safe...

    Online hockey sites

    Its a fraudulent site. DO NOT BUY THERE. Its located out of Indonesia and they will ask you to wire them money directly. Then poof they disappear.

    Need Help W/ Picking Skates for Wide Feet

    Thanks, Will do. Excellent insight.
  4. Hey Guys, I recently got back into hockey after about 15 years off the ice. I'm 5'10, 200lbs, have flat feet and wide feet. I wear a size 10 D in Nike sneakers, my feet measures approx. 27 CM Length and 10.5 CM Width (Widest point). Arch? (where your front tendon meets the skate tongue) here's the tricky part. I recently had my Graf Ultra 705s (Size 9 wide) shipped from the States, there are no hockey stores around to try skates. I used to play in these back in Varsity and had no problems. But this time, I had intense lace burn after my second skate and had to get off the ice after 1 hour. My question is, and after doing some through research. 1. Buy Bauer Nexus 1N 8.5 D or EE. 2. Very open to hearing some thoughts about the CCM Super / Ultra Tacks, I'm just concerned about the volume of the boot. I didn't pass the pencil test for my Graf Ultra 705s, but by a small amount. Does anyone have any experience with CCM Super / Ultra tacks line? Would I get lace burn in those because of my instep? Will a 8.5 EE be sufficient for my 10.5 CM wide feet and flat feet? Thank you for reading, appreciate any insight.

    Althoma1, first off; Thank You for your awesome reply. What you said about my Grafs is definitely true, I didn't even bother doing that test cause I know you're right, and my toes in my Grafs do not brush against the front. At the time (1999), it was the most expensive pair of skates I ever owned. I wear a size 10 D for Nike sneakers and was told to go down 1 size so I did. Got them in Wide and it felt good. I didn't realize until now they might have Not been the perfect fit. Your insight into the Nexus 1N skates are especially helpful. I contacted a seller over here who is in another city and they only carry EE for Nexus 1N skates. I was about to have them send it but now I will definitely reconsider finding another supplier to try on the Ds and also EEs. I have a feeling Ds will fit me bc your feet are wider than mine. I'll also look into Super Tacks because I've always loved CCM and Bauer has a reputation for narrow boots (excluding Nexus). I'll also research those custom skates but my equipment (all brand new) will arrive in 2 weeks. And boy am I excited..... Chasing those Varsity Glory Days.... lol. Thanks a lot pal.... Appreciate it. Will

    Thank you for your reply. I will look into (True Hockey). I've never heard of them.
  7. Hi Guys, I'm currently working overseas and there are no hockey shops available to try on skates. I'm 5' 10'', 200 lbs, have Flat and Wide feet. I recently got back into Ice Hockey, had my Graf Supra 705 skates shipped from New York. I'm size 9 wide on Graf 705. After 2 skates, I have intense Lace Burn on my left foot, after some research I realized I failed the pencil test on my Graf skates by a small amount. My feet measures about 27 CM length and 10.5 CM width at the widest point. There are no stores around me to try skates on. I can only order online. I have no budget. I just want to get back into ice hockey for the exercise and fun. After some preliminary research, I've realized most great brands like Graf and Easton are out of business. I was considering very seriously the Bauer Nexus 1N skates from Bauer - Size 8.5 EE? Or CCM Super Tacks EE or Ribcore EE. I would appreciate it if anyone had any advice for which Brand - Line of skates I should order and what size. I cant believe my old glory Grafs gave me lace burn to the point I had to get off the ice after 1 hour of skating. Thank you for reading this. Will *edited - I wear a size 10D in Nike running sneakers
