The Bauer Vapor 3X JR Hockey Skates are the newest member of the Vapor family for 2021. With the focus on its quickness, agility, asymmetrical toe cap, and other upgrades, this is a skate that you definitely want to check out.

Skate Fit Profile
Bauer has constructed the Vapor 3X with the focus on the performance level hockey players. In this skate, Bauer has stayed with the traditional fitting style which fits a narrower foot profile. It will not be until size 4 that the new Performance Skate Fit system will come into play. The 3X Pro junior is offered in sizes 1-3.5 in both widths D and EE.

Boot Construction & Stiffness Profile
Bauer has constructed the Vapor 3X with the focus on Performance level hockey players. The 3X features Bauer’s Digital Composite Motion Flex material. This Motion Flex Composite material is used to provide good stability while still allowing junior players the ease to flex their knees over their toes. Complementing these junior specific elements, is a Comfort Edge Padding lined along the top of the boot to reduce bite when performing stops and aggressive tight turns.

Liner & Internal Padding
The 3X comes out of the box with a game day ready comfort before heat molding. With Bauer’s new Fit System, getting into the 3X is seamless. The 3X features the Hydrophobic Microfiber liner to provide a great grip of the foot and moisture management to keep you as dry as possible. Pairing this with Bauer’s upgraded Aerofoam Memory foam, this boot delivers exceptional comfort while still maintaining a snug ankle wrap.

Asymmetrical Toe Cap
The Vapor 3X features an asymmetrical toe cap. This new toe cap has been revolutionized to reduce the negative space which results in a better fit. It also generates more power with every push stride. Bauer designed this toe cap based on the data collected from over 400,000 scans from the Bauer 3D scanner.

Bauer has styled its 3X tongue to keep the main focus on comfort and performance to ensure stability and flexibility while skating. The tongue includes a 40 oz felt tongue seamed with comfort lining to offer a balance of performance, support, and great feel.

The 3X Junior Skate comes with your standard Form Fit+ footbed. This insole allows your foot to stay secure to the bed of the boot. It also increases the control and blade contact you have while skating.

Lacing System
Since the 3X comes in at our 3rd price point for the performance level players the boot does not offer the Injected Eyelet System you will find in the Hyperlite and 3X Pro. This is not to say that the standard eyelet system is bad, it’s just different. In fact, many pro players in the NHL prefer standard eyelets. Unlike the Injected eyelet system where it is one cohesive strip of eyelets, the standard eyelets are individually woven into the stake. The main difference is the overall wrap you can get from the boot.

Unlike the 3X senior and intermediate sizings, the 3X junior offers a new black and blue transition look with some beautiful neon yellow accents to make the skate pop. You will definitely be standing out on the ice with these puppies on.

Hockey Player Skate Sizing Guide

When sizing for the correct size of a skate, we always advise taking the measurements below from a sitting position and not standing upright. Additional weight on your foot/feet can skew your result and misrepresent your foot size. The reason for this is that as you put your full weight on your feet, the arch of your foot will collapse and cause your foot to appear wider or longer than it actually is.

As well, please be aware that skate sizes and shoes sizing do not match exactly. As a general guideline, skates size 1 ½ sizes smaller than shoes.

It is ideal for a player to have a tight, snug fit both in length and width as this will provide the best performance and durability. If a skate is too big you will feel your feet slide around and you will not get the full performance out of the skates and can also develop calcium deposits - Haglund’s Deformity or “Bauer Bumps” for lack of a better term although this issue doesn’t only occur with Bauer models.

An Ideal Fit: Stand with your skates laced and your heel snug in the heel cup. Your toes should just barely feather the end of the toe box. Bend forward into a skating stance. Your toes should pull back slightly from the toe box. Once heat fit, your foot should slide back into the foams of the skate and the length you felt in your skating stance will more-or-less become you standing size.

To obtain the measurement above you will need a soft tape measure and a pen. Start by placing the tape measure flat along the ground in a straight line. Sitting in a chair, place your foot down with the longest point of your foot (usually big toe, or second toe) in line with the edge of the tape measure. Make sure you keep your weight off of your foot. Take a pen and mark the tape measure where the edge of your heel ends. Record this length in cm. This measurement will correspond with the sizing charts in each brand below, if you do not see your exact measurement, select the size with the next size increment above your measurement (i.e. you measure 24.9 cm, you would select 25.1 cm or Size 6).

Sizing Children for Growth Room: If you are purchasing skates for your child, it is common and usually recommended to add some additional room in the skate to increase the last, we recommend no more than 1 full size. Feet stop growing around ages 15 – 15 ½, and from ages 14 - 15 ½ we would recommend adding only half (1/2) a size in length. Follow the same measurement instructions as above, once you obtain your true size move up ½ or 1 size.

***Sizing of skates is very preference based and these measurements will not guarantee a fit that is right for you. Please use these as general guidelines, for the most accurate fit we always recommend getting measured by a professional skate fitter at our store or your local pro shop.***
