Skate Fit Profile
Vapor continues to be the best fit option for youth skaters with a low volume or slightly narrower foot profile. A snug heel fit also contributes to the 2X youth fit, adding stability for all levels of skaters.
A 30-ounce felt tongue with high-density foam metatarsal guard. This tongue offers plenty of comfort, flex, and protection against lace-bite.
Following the graphics of the 2X Pro model closely, the Vapor 2X skate is slightly toned down without any yellow colour pop and a slightly darker grey instead of the brighter silver. This is a great looking graphic with a more traditional look to it.
