Question Rink hockey boots in the US?

I am (long term) looking to try on/buy a rink hockey boot. Like a Reno or something, but I would really like check for size before I buy without also buying a ticket to Europe. Any one know of a store stateside which actively carries them? Up to size 12 (think that is 45-46 in Euro I think...).

-edit- I suppose if someone out there can size accurately from tracings I can supply tracings. Probably my only other option.

I took my chances on my sz 44 Reno's and have been pleased. I wear a 10.5 - 11 and they were perfect. My son's sz 45 Reno's too. We both skate the Millennium II and purchased from SlapshotUK. I don't know of anyone in the states selling Hockey boots but, have heard rumblings from James at Crazy Skates that they have a Hockey boot coming out soon.

This seller on Ebay says he's the only distributor of the RENOŽ brand in the USA;

I've bought from these people too;

Well that is interesting news, I will have to keep an eye on their lineup. Normally not a fan of their builds, but I am not in a position to be overly pick here.

Llama, measure your feet and see if you can get a few users to measure theirs, and report back how their skates fit. Also what socks (thick/thin) they use.

Or compare their length an widest part of a foot tracing

OK, so feet.

Left and right are nearly identical.
30cm long (to the first toe, yes my 1st toe is longer than my big toe)
11.8cm wide (measured exactly perpendicular to the first measurement)
circumference at widest point is 27.5cm for the left and 27cm for the right.

Scan of footbed to be posted (though I am certain it is unnecessary)

What I am after is what a rink hockey skate traditionally is, a heeled low-top boot. I want heat mold-able but leather is OK. (I'd love a Bont with a 2-3.5cm heel, which they don't make without going full custom it appears) At this point pickers can't be choosers, so anything is welcome.
