Pure Hockey Says: The Bauer Nexus 400 skate offers you tremendous value and a skate that really will work well at any level of play. You get a compression-molded EVA quarter with sport nylon and a metatarsel guard in the tongue to help prevent lace-bite. The lightweight hydrophobic mircofiber liner provides you with excellent ventiliation and keeps things nice and dry inside. The holder is the Bauer Lightspeed Pro, with a Super Stainless Steel Runner. This is truly a terrific skate at this price.
