SENIOR Hockey Skates
Senior hockey skates are sized to fit adults and full grown teenagers with a Men's US shoe size of 7 or greater.

JUNIOR Hockey Skates
Junior hockey skates are sized to fit kids in the range of approximately 8 to 12 years old with a US shoe size of 2 to 6.5.

YOUTH Hockey Skates
Youth hockey skates are sized to fit toddlers and young children in the age range of approximately 9 years old and younger with a US youth shoe size of 1.5 or smaller.

*Female Skaters*
The difference between men's shoes and women's shoes is 1.5 to 2 sizes. So, if you wear size 9 women's shoes, that translates to a men's size 7.5 or 7.0, which would put you in a size 6 senior hockey skate. More simply put, go 3 sizes down from your women's shoe size in order to find your hockey skate size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great support, solid hockey skate, great price! Great ankle support & light weight! You wont see your kid skating around with floppy ankles in these skates. I gave these 4/5 stars only because you can buy one step up to the X900 which are excellent skates but $80 more than the X500 model. My son walked around with the X500 on one foot and the X900 on the other. He said they both felt comfortable but he could tell the X900 was a little bit more comfy. Since he said they both felt good, we saved money and got the X500. They baked nicely at the store and fitted to his foot really well.

I was wondering what the difference between these and the senior pair of these? I'm 17 and looking to buy my first pair of ice hockey skates. I recently rented a skates at an ice rink and got size 12. Would I need the 12 in youth or senior? Thanks!

Asked by: IceAndInline
You will want a senior size. Youth is for small children.

Skate size

The Bauer vapor 500 youth skates I'm looking at are those sizes for little kids I have a 5 year old that wear a size 12 toddler size will the size 12 skates you have fit him thanks
Asked by: Mudrat
These skates usually fit 1.5 sizes lower than shoe size. However, for youth sizes and growing players, sometimes 1 size below shoe size is sufficient.
