Default How to know if size of NEW skites is ok for my foot? Powerslide hardcore evo

hello...
Want to train street slalom and I am in process to buy new skates which need to have good control...

Today are in store came skates which i order, Powerslide hardcore Evo FSK 2014.

http://www.powerslide.com/products/skates/hardcore-evo



When I try it, my fingers are lightly touched the top of liner, just like is same size as my foot (i have very thin stocking). Overal feeling is like is to tight overall for maybe half number. I order one number bigger so I will can try both, 45 and 46. Maybe is new skates always tighter before liners "stretch" with usage?

How to choose between two sizes by feeling when I try it again? Where my fingers-buckle-strap need to be, what space is needed around foot?

I really dont want to spend 360$ and dont have good size.

thanks

In my experience, skates do expand, quite a lot from regular usage.

Since a lot of people are uncomfortable going too small, then letting the skate expand to your feet size - I would recommend just going for the tight fit.

The reason being is because Powerslide Hardcore Evo actually is heat mouldable, and you can slightly change the shape and size (a little bit) of the interior to better fit your feet.

In the end, this is your call
