The Bauer Nexus 6000 Hockey Skates aim to offer you a high-performing skate at a great price. The 6000 has variable stiffness compression molded EVA boot. That means, in short, that this boot is not too stiff for you, but its also going to protect you adequately. The Nexus 6000 has a large, comfortable, 48 oz white felt tongue that is so popular on today's skates, and Bauer's Form-Fit+ footbed with grip that keeps your feet stable inside your skates! New to the Nexus line, the Edge Holder sits 3mm taller, allowing for a more aggressive turn. The Edge holder revolutionized the way skate steel is replaced by introducing a trigger system that allows you to change your own steel in seconds without even leaving the bench! This skate holds true to the Bauer Nexus goal, which is a comfortable, traditional fit.
