The Bauer Vapor 3X hockey skates are designed for the player who skates 2-3+ times per week and is looking for a good balance of fit, performance, and comfort.

  • Significant weight reduction of approximately 6.5% lighter
  • Asymmetrical toe cap for better overall fit
  • 40oz Felt tongue with comfort lining 
  • Hydrophobic liner with great grip to secure foot in place
  • Full composite boot
  • Junior Skate has Motion-Flex and a LS Balance runner with a 13ft radius to make it easier for kids to bend their knees and learn good skating strides 

When purchasing a new pair of hockey skates, it is important to focus on fit. If you’re unsure which skate line or model fits your foot best, or if you want an accurate measurement and assessment, visit your local Pure Hockey. 

Over the last couple of years Bauer has been focused on separating the performance attributes of the Vapor and Supreme skates from an on-ice performance and feel perspective. The new technologies, new materials and different flex points are what will differentiate these skates. 

Vapor focuses on quickness with the lower part of the skate being softer for increased response and the upper part of the skate being stiffer allowing for increased lateral support. The flex point of the Vapor skate is in the lower portion to maximize agility and speed.

The Vapor 3X skate is a full composite boot that provides tremendous support and thermoforming capabilities. The most significant upgrade in the 3rd price point skate is the reduced weight of approximately 6.5%. Included in the weight savings is a taller and improved quality LS+ runner driving home unprecedented value. The Junior 3X Skate has a LS Balance runner with a 13ft radius and Motion-Flex to make it easier for kids to bend their knees and learn the skating stride. 

Passed down from the Vapor 2X Pro line is the asymmetrical toe cap. This toe cap design reduces the volume of the skate for an enhanced low-profile fit, while also allowing you to improve your push-off with each stride. 

The 40oz Pro Stock tongue has a comfort lining that offers a balance of performance, support and great feel. Inside the boot you’ll find a hydrophobic microfiber liner and Bauer’s Form-Fit+ footbed. The liner provides good support, a soft feel, and moisture-management properties to help wick sweat away and keep your foot secured in the boot. The footbed is lined with memory foam underneath for true comfort as soon as you step into the skate.

The Vapor 3X skate provides players with a great low-profile option, with the right fit and performance features included to make this model a terrific value.

SENIOR Hockey Skates
Senior hockey skates are sized to fit adults and full grown teenagers with a Men's US shoe size of 8 or greater.

Intermediate Hockey Skates
Intermediate hockey skates are sized to fit kids in the range of approximately 10 to 13 years old with a US shoe size of 5 to 7.

JUNIOR Hockey Skates
Junior hockey skates are sized to fit kids in the range of approximately 8 to 10 years old with a US shoe size of 2 to 4.5.

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 Good skate for reasonable price My sons fit profile when from a fit 3 to a fit 1 in less than a year(pre teen). He LOVES his new vapors and his skating stride has noticeably lengthened. The skates are a step up from the CCM ribkor74 that he was using. Much stiffer quarter package. Skate has a good amount of higher end features and has good interior support. We upgraded the foot beds to super feet since the include ones are typical unsupported foam. All in all a very good middle of the line skate for not a lot of money. Definitely Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Picky about my skate fit and these are dialed in without going up to Pro or Custom models. Some things to consider and / or ease any hesitant buyers: - tongue squeaks with standard laces, changed to wax laces. It's just the vinyl material they used on this particular skate and only one skate did it until I swapped. - insoles that come with these skates are horribly cheap (Bauer should be ashamed); expect to spend another $50+ on SuperFeet, still giving 5stars as I would have swapped them anyway and the SF locked right in. - if you like your skates snug, expect these skates to loosen up 1/16th of an inch or two after baking and sweating in them. I would recommend NOT to size up if you are hurting mildly in some spots at first. - blades are profiled differently than the Supremes - they have more of a heel and, at first, found I was falling forward. Takes some getting used to coming from Supremes - may consider different profile of blade, but quick turns in these are incredibly easy - seems to have helped with my stick handling. - top eyelet and the fabric / stitching that meets there is stitched to a point - seems like it will peel open / fold with time. No big deal - will see - in my experience, toe box is less blunt than Supremes and provides a little more room. A 10 Supreme and 10 Vapor fit differently. the 10 Vapor seemed to fit a few 16ths longer than the Supremes to me and provided a perfect fit (I like my toe touching the end of my skate when standing ~ positive but comfortable contact); the rounded toe on these provided that. - Look and feel! Maybe not the most important thing but I like the way they look, very sharp and I like handling these skates, feel very put together. Three times out on these skates and they seem that they will wear in like a favorite baseball glove. Great skates for a dad teaching his kids to skate and playing league hockey 1x week and occasional pick-up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Skates Definitely Recommend Have always worn Bauer Supreme skates but because my foot is a bit narrow decided to try Vapors. Went with the FIT2 skate and have had them for about 6 weeks now and very happy with them. Was also looking at the Vapor 3X Pro but not sure I wanted to spend that much money. The boot on the 3X locks in my heel to the skate while still having enough toe room and overall the boot is very comfortable. I play men's league twice a week then also on the ice couple other times per week coaching ... would highly recommend these skates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome skates Bought these for my daughter who plays travel and is on the ice 4-5 days a week and she absolutely loves them. Solid construction and support and great looks. For the price, it's hard to beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit My son tried these on loved them instantly. Uses them for travel hockey.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor customer service There is a zipper like hard seam right on my sons back heal. It’s only in one skate so it must be a defect. He hates them. I tried to take them back and they wouldn’t. He only wore them once. Terrible customer service.
