The Bauer Supreme Matrix 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 Fiber Composite+ 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.
Bauer has upgraded the outsole to a full composite material, which is the same one that can be found on the 2S Pro skates. The addition of vent holes will help drain moisture, keeping the boot as light as possible.
The liner has been upgraded to the same LOCK-FIT liner found in the 2S with the addition of wear patches. This will help secure your foot while wicking moisture and keeping your feet dry. This will combine with memory foam ankle pads for a comfortable skate right out of the box.
The skate will also feature the same 3-piece tongue found on the 2S. The Matrix will use a black reflex 48oz tongue with an injected metatarsal guard.
The Matrix will continue to have the TUUK Lightspeed Edge holder for easy blade changes, but this year Bauer will be introducing there all new Black Oxidized LS3 runner. The black steel is going to hold a edge longer, while reducing corrosion, not to mention, it looks amazing with the black and yellow color way of the Supreme line.
The Bauer Supreme Matrix 2018 Junior Skates are a Source Exclusive model based off of the Bauer S29 skates with added performance upgrades from the 2S and an exclusive black oxidized LS3 runner. The Matrix skates keep true to the fit of the Supreme line by providing an anatomical and snug fit. The quarter package of the boot is made with 3-D fiber composite+. This construction uses anatomical thermoforming and when heated, the skate is formed giving the player a true 360-degree custom 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.***
