The new Bauer Vapor X Shift 2017 has reconstructed their skates with the new Fiber Composite+ giving their skates a more durable last. While still maintaining the X-Rib pattern to produce a tighter fit in the heel and ankles to reduce slipping and movement. Combining Fiber Composite+ and X-Rib will be offering a better performing skate and much better price in years past.

An upgraded tongue taken from the X900 boot offers the ability to maximize fit of the skate locking down the foot. While not compromising the ability to maintain forward flexion during striding. With this tongue being accompanied by the anatomical heel and lightweight dual density foam ankle padding. A molded poly metatarsal guard in the tongue defends your foot from lace bite and binding and allows the laces to slide up and down on the tongue without biting into a certain area.

As well, another upgraded feature the new Lock Fit liner wicks away moisture from your foot to keep you cool, dry and stable while performing at your top level. The outsole is also upgraded from the Bauer Vapor X900 and is made up of a full lightweight composite material to provide rigidity while striding. Making for a stronger and consistent energy transfer. Lastly upgraded Tuuk LS2 steel from the Bauer X800 provides a longer lasting sharpening and better edges with an elite mix of materials.

Source Exclusive upgrades include a Lock Fit+ liner, a full composite outsole, a 48/40 oz. dual density combination felt tongue, Tuuk LS2 as well as a changed abrasion pad inside the boot and an updated graphic to match the Bauer Vapor X900.

Hockey Player Skate Sizing Guide

    Things to consider:
  • Age
  • Measurement from longest point of foot (cm)

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.***
