The Bauer Supreme Elite Junior skate keeps true to the fit of the Supreme line by providing an anatomical and snug fit. The quarter package has been upgraded to a 3-D Trueform tech PU material for increased stiffness and weight reduction. This construction uses anatomical thermoforming and when heated, the skate is formed giving the player a true 360-degree custom fit.
The outsole has been upgraded to a Fiber Composite material. This will enhance the rigidity of the skate and maximize the energy transfer in every stride.
The skate will also feature the same 2-piece tongue found on the S29. The Elite will use a 48oz tongue with an injected metatarsal guard.
The 2018 Elite will also feature a Hydrophobic liner, designed to keep your feet cool and wick away moisture. This will be combined with a Form-Fit insole for maximum comfort and support.
The Elite will continue to have the TUUK Lightspeed Edge holder for easy blade changes. The steel has been upgraded to a LS1 runner, for a longer lasting sharpening.
The Bauer Supreme Elite S18 Junior Skates are a Source Exclusive model based off of the Bauer S27 skates with added performance upgrades from S29. The Elite skates keep true to the fit of the Supreme line by providing an anatomical and snug fit.

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.***
