Pure Hockey Says: First came the SUPREME line, next came VAPOR, now tradition meets innovation with NEXUS. Bauer has released their new skates the NEXUS 1000 that offer that classic look and feel that a lot of players were asking for and Bauer listened at every level. Now these aren`t anything like those floppy skates from back in the day, the 1000 offers an extremely lightweight quarter package that allows players to accelerate quickly and maximize energy transfer. The deep V heel allows the foot to see farther into the skate so the skate wraps around more yet has a wider fit in the center of the foot. The hydrophobic clarino liner has a tan color to give it that retro look but trust us these skates are anything but old school. If you`ve been searching for that fit that you could never find before check out the NEXUS 1000.
