Pure Hockey Says: The new Nexus line of skates are packed with great technology and the Bauer Nexus 800 is close to a top-of-the-line offering. The 800 offers you a fully thermoformable nylon quarter package and offers the same ultra thick pro-felt tongue that you will find on the elite-level Nexus 1000 skate. You also get the lightweight composite outsole, Tuuk Lightspeed2 holders and the LS2 stainless steel. This skate is elite level for overall support and durability. Another magnificent Bauer skate!
