Helpful sizing tips:
It is generally recommended that high-performance skaters go for a more snug (tighter) fit.
Remember that leather boots will stretch and form to your foot over time, microfiber boots will hold true to size. For example, if your measurements are between a size 8 and 8.5, it would generally be recommended you go down to the size 8 in leather and give it some time to stretch for a better more secure fit in the long run.
Toes should never be curled.
