if they are wide or narrow i think


A letter following the size (length) refers to the width of the skate. A 'D' width (also known as an 'R', or 'regular' width) best fits a standard or average width foot. A 'C' width (also known as an 'N', or 'narrow' width) fits a foot that has a narrow or slender heel, ball and ankle width. An 'E' or 'EE' width (also know as a 'W', or 'wide' width) best fits a foot that is larger or wider than a standard width foot.
