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.

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.
