The Bauer Vapor X300 Hockey Skates have a tapered fit that has a standard fit in the toe box going to a narrower fit in the ankle and heel. Upgraded in this skate from the model below, the Vapor X200, is the Tech nylon with thermoformed x-rib pattern to help provide support. The ankle padding is also upgraded with closed cell foam. The skate is also thermoformable, meaning you can bake it to get a custom fit, a feature typically reserved for higher-end models. The TUUK lightspeed Pro holder is used with the TUUK stainless steel runner. The upgraded features in this skate make it a great choice for an entry level player looking to get a little more out of their skate.
