Bauer has long had a commitment to innovation, and uses scientific methods and player feedback in combination with its state-of-the-art design lab to develop the most high-performance ice skates in the game. The new Vapor X800 is designed with dynamic speed in mind, and each piece of its construction is strategically chosen to enhance players on-ice performance.

The Vapor X800 is constructed using Bauers lasted 3D Curv Composite with X-Rib pattern. The Curv Composite gives a rigid structural stiffness to support the most powerful strides.

Comfort and fit are two main factors when choosing the right skate. The Vapor X800 features a series of securing technologies to ensure the best fit possible, and give players the opportunity to perform at their highest level. The FLEX-LOCK tongue creates a locked fit while allowing forward flex and adding additional protection to the foots most vulnerable area.

Inside the skate, the Vapor X800 has lightweight dual-density foam ankle pads covered by the LOCK-FIT liner. This liner locks your foot in place while keeping it dry, reducing foot slip and offering the most production from each stride.


Last, but definitely not least, the Vapor X800 is complete with Bauers now ultra-famous LightSpeed Edge holder in combination with LS2 steel. This combination gives skaters the ultimate edge and allows blades to be easily changed.

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 5 out of 5 by from Great out of the box feel Wore these skates once and felt like I had been skating in these for months. Had gotten 1s skates and was sold skates that were a size too big from a different retailer. Got aweful hematomas just above both ankles. Had to get new skates and certainly didn't go back there. found Pure Hockey and got great advice. Picked up a pair and haven't had problems since. Great skate. Comfortable and heat molds wonderfully. Amazing quality for reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Switched from Supreme One.8 I have a narrow foot and have been in Supremes since I was a kid. Wow, what a difference! These Vapors are fit my foot perfectly. The insoles are throw-aways (as are all in my mind). I threw in the Bauer Speed plate and the fit is perfect after just one bake. Highly recommend if you prefer a snug fit in the heel and mid foot with a decent sized to box. They aren't cheap, but won't kill you either. As a 32 year old beer leaguer I'm looking forward to the next decade in these Vapors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These Skates Bought these to replace my Bauer Nexus 600 (which I should not have been sold BTW). These Skates are awesome. Put Superfeet in them and hit the ice. I have started playing again after many years away and play twice a week in them. Great feel, love the blades, Great heel lock, nice and stiff. No foot pain due to proper fit and no foot fatigue. Highly recommend if you are looking for a mid level skate (pricewise) with high end features!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great skates! Just picked these up today and I gotta say these skates are awesome. Even though I'm still breaking them in after just 2 hours on the ice I can already tell a difference with my skating. They are SUPER lightweight and allow me to make quick, razor sharp turns. Just gotta get used to the stiffer boot since I am upgrading from last year's X600s. Not only do these skates perform well but they look absolutely sick! Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best skates I've ever had I really enjoy these skates. I have pretty wide feet, so it is sometimes hard to find a comfortable boot that will allow my toes to breath. The EE width on these are great and the boat is super stiff. I'm very glad I got these skates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Short break in time I baked these once and it was perfect. I know these are a little pricey but it’s definitely worth it if you play on the regular.

Contemplating on buying these x800’s. What would these skates be comparable too? The ‘16 1x’s?? Maybe the apx2 skates??

Asked by: Buch
These skates would be more comparable to the X900 '16 skates
