New for 2017, the Bauer Vapor XR500 skate was built for performance and comfort. The XR500 includes a Reinforced Trueform tech PU quarter package with X-rib pattern to provide comfort and stability. The 1-piece heel/ankle core design is meant to provide heel support allowing for maximum comfort and performance. Also included is the hydrophobic microfiber liner that helps maintain dryness during heavy use. The Anatomical 40oz 2 piece felt tongue and metatarsal padding are included in the Vapor XR500 to provide comfort and prevent lace bite.

Bauer did not forget about the importance of the lower frame. Featuring the HI-LO Aluminum Ventilator CNC Painted Chassis, HI-LO ABEC 7 bearings, the Vapor XR500 is designed to improve your skating speed and stability. The HI-LO setup contains two 80mm and two 76mm HI-LO Clinger 74A wheels. The Vapor XR500 skate was designed to give you strong performance at a mid-level price point. These skates are a great addition to any inline players setup!

I am purchasing either Bauer vapor xr300 or 500 in-line skates. I want to use them outside.  What wheels do I need ? Or are there skates with outside wheels 

Asked by: Nanc
If you plan on skating outside, I would recommend going with the XR300's. They have a harder, outdoor wheel. The XR500's have more of a hybrid wheel, so the wheels may break down a bit quicker.

Can you bake these skates similar to ice hockey skates to get a more custom fit?

Asked by: Chris888
Actually, Yes you can get these skates baked at any of the Pure Hockey stores using one of their skate ovens. You should not be baking these, or any skates, at home in a baking oven.

My foot size is 11 with EE width. What size hockey skate would correspond to my foot size? Ive usually used 9-91/2 skates but the width is slightly narrow.

Asked by: caster
I would recommend sticking with a 9.5EE if possible. Try out Bauer's Nexus line or CCM's Tacks line.
