The Bauer Vapor X70 ice skates are a good choice for many levels of hockey. The Vapor X70 ice skates offers great performance while maintaining a forgiving feel that you wont get in a top-end composite boot. The quarter package is constructed of a dense and durable nylon, and the tongue is a 40 ounce, traditional white felt tongue. The hydrophobic microfiber liner helps resist moisture, keeping you dry and extending boot life. A great feature on the Bauer Vapor X70 ice skates is the Tuuk LS Edge Holder that is not only 3mm taller, but has the quick release trigger system that allows you to change you own steel in seconds!
