@GriffD31 @kudot my feet are messed right up! I have a small foot, and wide, not to mention my bunion on the right foot. I had 11k skates for maybe 6 or 7 years (side too big probably) until I said to my self it's time to go new and cowlingless skate. So, I put up a grand for 2x pros. Went with the 6.5 EE because it fit, but I had issues, pain at the bottom of the left foot, and my right foot numb after I took off the skates, not enough volume for my sausage foot, it just didn't close good enough, I also had superfeet insoles which helped a bit but not enough.
After reading reviews on Trues like you both mentioned, no thanks, the durability issue looks huge, I want skates for the next 3-5 years, I play twice a week all year. Even though the 2X was a nice skate, and yes I can go custom I went with CCM custom program.
I was lucky to have a rep in the store to help out, and it was time to go custom. First, I put on some pairs in store to make sure that some skates can be molded to my foot, BUT, no luck. I have to go full custom for my feet. I was excited for AS3s skate (it even recommended it on the scan) BUT after talking to CCM, they suggested I go with the FT2 boot because they can raise the eyeleds up more vs the AS3s, so my foot has more volume for closure and comfort. I was disappointment, but, they know what they are talking about (I hope), they gave the store a call and suggested this for my foot type. So, I had to go with it, another thing, I'm a fan of the 4MM blade and CCM only provides this with step black steel. There is an up charge on it.
I will let you know how this goes when I get the skate, should take 1-2 weeks I suspect or a little more. The cost is HUGE here in Toronto for this. But, keeping my fingers crossed.
We may think that we have the right size, the bigger we go and it fits, but it can give you issues in other areas. If your foot is messed like mine, go custom, and to a good store that know their stuff.
