Runner: LS+ 

Holder: Lightspeed Edge 

Liner: Sublimated Microfiber 

Tongue: Pro Stock 40oz with Liner 

Eyelets/Facing: Standard 

Material: Digi Composite 

Construction: 3D Injected Two-Piece Boot with Digi Comp Outsole 

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, use our sizing guide below or for the most accurate measurement and assessment, visit your local Pure Hockey to be scanned on a Bauer 3D scanner.

The Vapor X3 skate has a Digi Composite quarter package making this a lightweight, durable skate for this price point. 

Inside the boot, Bauer combines memory foam padding with a sublimated Microfiber liner. The memory foam is strategically placed in the ankle area to wrap the foot in quality comfort, while the liner provides good support and some added comfort throughout the hockey skate. At the bottom of the boot is Bauer’s Form Fit footbed for good support and the feel. At the top of the skate is a 40oz Pro stock tongue with a liner for added comfort and flexibility.

The X3 includes the original Tuuk Lightspeed EDGE holder and the LS+ runner offering good blade durability for this price point.

While there are certainly benefits to purchasing a higher-end model, especially if you’re looking for more technologies to help your performance, the Bauer Vapor X3 skates offer quality features for the occasional or new to hockey player.

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.
