Default Harlick boot width

Hi All,
I've been looking at some stock Harlick boots. Looking at their online sizing chart and measuring my foot (especially around the ball of the foot), do Harlick's run narrow? I'm in Riedell boots now and think they run a bit narrow because I wear a regular B-width woman's shoe and have to wear very thin socks with them.
My freestyle coach loves Edeas and all the kids in the skating club wear those but I don't know what I think of a boot that isn't all leather.
Thanks for any info!

they all can be bought in different widths, but i think the newer riedells since the change many years ago run a bit more narrow.

Thanks Rick. I am thinking the Harlick must run a bit narrow too, taking my foot measurement I would need a D width, but in a shoe I take a B width. I was hoping to pick up a used pair, but I think they'll be too narrow.

you can always get them stretched if you pick them up for a good price.

Here is a link to a video titled, The Right Fit. It is for ice boots, but there is no difference in the way a boot should fit; be it roller or ice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=qAgi2JQ9DG0

Thank you!
I learned some new makers of boots.

Just got done with my boot fitting, and Phil was a great help. Any questions when interested in sizings or fittings he could answer. Glad I went with Harlicks, as they will go the extra mile.

Pastskater,
What model/style Harlick are you going to get?
I tried on a High Tester this past weekend (used) and it felt much too stiff for me.
My Riedell 297 is pretty soft. Possibly to soft where the left ankle is broken in.

I have to get a new boot, mine are killing me when I work on my backwards anything.

I've also been looking at Edea because the local skate club use them and the coach recomends them.

What kind of boot are you using now?
