Going up a size change width?


Recommended Posts

I fit into Reebok/CCM in a 10 EE boot.  Want to stay with a cowling and a 4mm blade. Cannot for the life of me find a pair in that size, not in person or online.  Would going up to an 11 D work Width wise?

No, don't do it. And if you are try the skates on. If you need the extra width stick with EE.

Thanks for the input.  Was able to actually find a pair of older but new Bauers in my size!  Thank God, couldn't believe I could find wide skates anywhere really. At my local shop or online. Have worn Bauer before and recently so I knew my size in those so wasn't afraid to purchase without trying on.

I hope it will work, are they older pairs of Bauers? Because fit might be a little different from experience with the newer Bauer skates for me.

Got a never used pair of total one nxg. Have had many different models of Bauer throughout the years so it shouldn't be an issue.  Worse case I can sell them for at least what I paid as I got a great deal.

It looks like you've found something that works for you, but just for the record...IMO:

Never make this concession.  Even if your foot fits width-wise, your heel will not be locked in and you'll be searching for another pair of skates in no time
