Comments: I just got these skates today as a birthday gift, i play hockey around twice a week so i figured i'd step up to these from my x1.0 and i managed to get a skate on them today and it was incredible, the comparison to the previous skate was crazy and i saw this as soon as i touched the ice, would recommend these to someone that plays like i do, incredible skate, so happy with the so far.
From: Sam, England

Comments: I personally did not like these skates at all. Coming over from high end Supremes, I felt so unstable on these and I had to really think about skating during the game. Felt like i was almost leaning backwards, even though Vapor claim to put your weight forward. Looked like a rookie for a season until i finally ditched them for the Supreme One.7's. I can not say enough about how valuable a great pair of skates is. spend and extra $150 or so and you will take your game to another level.
From: JP, Maryland

Comments: There is so much to say about a skate like this. When I first started playing ice hockey, I did not want to spend so much money. I first looked at this skate and I felt in love. The design here is sick as well as the technology in a skate like this. I have been using this skate for a year and a half now. It is super durable and strong and withstands any shots or stick that has hit it. They are super lightweight, so you do not feel like you are lugging around a lot. And it is extremely responsive. These are great for sprinting and quick, hard stops as well as hard cornering. Playing as a center, this is exactly what I need. Best skates ever!!!
From: Melanie

Comments: These skates are extremely exceptional for anyone that is experienced and is moving onto that intermediate level. The boot is pretty stiff, Very comfortable, & Overall stylish. Just what id expect from the vapor series. Been skating in these for about 2 months. Cant be any happier. (:

Comments: If your looking for some strong and cheap skates this is the way to go. Great skate, great price, nice looking skate. Easy to mold and brake in, and it's a comfortable skate....overall great buy!!!!!!
From: Jon, Las Vegas, NV

Comments: These are my first pair of Bauer skates I've ever owned or skated in, and so far I like them! The first time I skated in these was more of a leisure skate than anything (Millennium Park), and I already started to feel the skates were broken in after about an hour and a half of skating. This is an exceptional skate for all, and the best part about these is they don't break the bank either. Fit is a bit narrow but you get used to it after skating a few times in these.
From: Vadim, Chicago, IL

Comments: Great skate for the price, suggest getting a wider size than normal due to the fact they fit tighter, but more custom fit once baked.
From: Sam, Mililani, HI

Comments: Excellent Skate for the price, easy to bake, EE width is perfect for us wide feet men. Skate on them for open hockey once or twice a week, so not a ton of use, but they feel broken in already!
From: Tom

Comments: Decent skate for the price, I heated mine up in the oven and got them to break in nice and quick. Worn three different Bauer Vapor line skates, and I like these the same as the pricier ones.
From: Chris

Comments: Decent skate for those who just started out playing hockey. skates held out well after 1 season of league play with minor wear and tear. I would recommend purchasing a pair of superfeet and wax laces to go with this
From: Eric

Comments: great skates broke them in so quick there super comfortable and they do a superb job at skating the best skates I've ever owned
From: Tyler

Comments: Great skates. Played in them for a few hours today and had no issues afterwards with soreness/blisters. Much smoother and lighter than my previous Bauer Supremes. They feel like they're already broken in. I now see why this line is so popular at all levels.
From: Brian, Virginia, USA

Comments: I just got these skates and they are amazing it only took me a couple of hours to break them in. And they are strong comfortable and they help give you maximum power when u skate. And they are very durable, buy these skates NOW!
From: Wata boss

Comments: Awesome skates, pretty lightweight for the price, and provide a
nice amount of stiffness for an intermediate leveled hockey player. Got
these a couple months ago and right now, they show almost no signs of
wear or tear. Really durable skate, and definatley worth the price.

  • The Bauer Vapor 1X Pro Stock Skates boasts pro-exclusive features that the retail version did not include. These 1X Pro's have a stiffer Curv quarter package, a more traditional 52oz, three-piece white felt tongue and upgraded FormFit+ footbeds (even though these still come with SpeedPlates). Just like the standard version, the 1X Pro's come with the new X-Rib design that was inspired by the OD1N project which not only reduces weight but increases stability and support.

Derived from the OD1N Skate Project, these Vapor 1X's showcase a redesigned X-rib pattern on the new Aluminzed Curv™ quarter package.

  • The Bauer Vapor 1X LE Skate showcases a blacked out, 3D-lasted Curv™ quarter packages that delivers some of the most explosiveness and power around.

  • The Bauer Vapor X900 Ice Hockey Skates feature a full pro-spec setup like the flagship 1X, just with more traditional features. The X900 showcases a full composite outsole, a 3D-lasted Curv™ composite quarter package and a thick traditional white felt tongue. Bauer also gave the X900 skate with pro-preferred LS3 steel that is taller than LS2 or Fusion runners, providing a stronger overall build with a longer sharpening life. 

  • The Bauer Vapor X800 Ice Hockey Skates boast the same high-performance, Curv™ composite quarter package as the flagship Vapor 1X, making it the only sub-800 gram skate at its price point (size 8.0D). This 3D lasted, composite material provides top notch stiffness and support; directly translating into powerful explosiveness and agility. Working with the signature Vapor X-Rib design is Bauer's premium Hydra-Max Liner; it not only works to keep feet dry but it helps to keep the foot from sliding around internally.

  • The Bauer Vapor X600 Ice Hockey skate is a high-performing, intermediate-level skate. This Vapor X600 showcases a Tech-mesh Nylon quarter package that's popular with the pro's because of its traditional build with it's high-end support. The 40 oz, two-piece white felt tongue carries on the pro-preferred theme; boasting injected high-density foams for ample impact and lace bite protection.

  • The Bauer Vapor X500 Ice Hockey Skates are a great choice for a recreational to intermediate level player. The Vapor X500 skates are the first model in this Vapor Line to showcase the innovative Tuuk Edge Holder.

  • The Bauer Vapor X300 Ice Hockey Skates are an excellent choice for the entry level player that wants extra performance and support.

The exterior is made up of a Tech Nylon material that's popular at the pro-level for it's traditional look and feel.
