I have them.
I wear an 11 to 11.5 shoe size and I am a 11 in mission skates.
I wear the 10.0 in tour. Its worked for the beemers, the code-ones, and the Q's.
Id go with a 9 or a 9.5 if you have a wide foot uif I were you.
one piece of advice....DO NOT BAKE TOUR SKATES!
They will deteriorate very quickly.
I skate 4-5 times a week and a baked pair of tours lasts less than 6 months. The boots just get so flimsy, you lose all the support.
with my 8.8s and the Q's I havent baked them and they are still doing well after two months.

as a tour dealership proshop, we sell a lot of their skates. I fit people for a lot of skates, and GENERALLY, if you are wearing a 10.5 shoe, you should probably look at a size 10 tour skate in the Q.
I personally wear a 10.5 or 11 shoe, and I wear a 10 skate in tour.
Rule of thumb Ive found with all tour skates is if your shoe size is nine through 12 or 13? its wise to consider coming down just a half size. Below 9 in shoe size try a full size down.
What Matt said about baking them is crucial, dont bake them!
And baking them only changes the composure of the structure of the skate on any skate. I dont understand doing it at all. Break them in with some sweat and blood like a real hockey player! They will last longer, and you will hate to part with them later.

ok i have 2 diff people telling me 2 diff sizes, i suppose the diff between a 9.5 and a 10 is not massive, any other opinions?? Also thank you guys for responding, so quick. I am looking to play PIHA this year so if either of you need players hit me up. I am giving to end of day for this post before i order them!! ha ha.

I would go with the 9.5 in the tour, unless your foot is wide then go 10. Unlike mission, i do not believe tour makes a wide variant.
For playing this season, we are playing in the AIHL out of Connecticut. Todd and his fine organization are playing in the PIHA out of Pennsylvania.
To be honest you cannot go wrong with playing for either of our organizations.
PM me if interested.

We sell Tour Skates here at Hot Shots. Do you notice that some of the other skates run big compared to their shoe size? I have fit a lot of people with Tour Skates and the skates are usually about a size or two bigger then there shoe size. I wear a 9 shoe and I wear a 7 in the Cobalt 9.9. Do you get that a lot?

i dont know what you guys are talkin about. i baked my g80's and they lasted 3 years of skating on them 2-3 times a week...
maybe its different with the cobalt q's??? i dunno

the g80's are an older model, made when hockey skates were a little heavier and stiffer. They were pretty durable.
