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 Flat feet feel OK in these I did a lot of research and tried on many different pairs of skates at the local Total Hockey shop. These skates were the best choice for me and my level of play. I have flat feet and was concerned about comfort. So far I haven't been disappointed with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skates Overall a pretty good pair of skates for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best $200 I've Made When compared to the Nexus (Wide) and the Supreme (Anatomical), these fit me the best, hands down. I wear a size 9.5 shoe and chose a size 8.0 skate. After baking and finding the best lacing setup they're super comfortable. I prefer to skip the top eyelet to allow sufficient forward flex. The only thing I don't like is the footbeds, which are thin and flat. However, they're easy to remove/replace with whatever suits you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit! These skates are a perfect fit for my feet. Very durable and light weight. Highly recommend for rec players.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price I needed an inexpensive skate that I could rely on while I saved up money for more expensive skates in the future. I could not be more happy with these skates. They have the comfortability and durability of some of the higher end skates I have owned in the past. I will definitely be sticking with the Vapor line of skates for a very long time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My skates were defective. R-blade was off-center I purchased the Bauer Vapor X500 2016 model for officiating purposes. After baking & profiling, I wore them to officiate a low level game. From the get go they felt unstable. The right blade felt pigeon toed – it kept bending inward. I couldn't turn to my right. After the game, I examined the skate closely and realized the right skate blade was riveted 1/8" off center and skewed to the left. My pair of skates should never have passed the factory inspection test. I took them back to Pure Hockey and exchanged for a 2017 model pair. Vito from DG, IL Pure Hockey handled the exchange very professionally. My new 2017 Vapor X500 model feels Great. I want to reiterate IT WAS MY PAIR OF VAPOR X500 THAT WERE DEFECTIVE ONLY and not the whole batch! Overall - My 2016 Vapor 500 Skates bad , Pure Hockey Good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels better than a shoe. Very happy with the skate. Pure hockey baked the skates and gave me a sharpening for free. There was a better deal on their website and they honored all the free stuff. I Was thinking about inserts but skated with them for a month and no foot cramps. Very well engineered and awesome price.

how sharp do the blades come when they are shipped? will I need to get them sharpened before use?

Asked by: KsheaW
They do not come sharpened. You would need to get them sharpened before use.

what is the difference between these and the Bauer Vapor x400?

Asked by: KSheaW
A major difference is the X500 has the Edge holder which allows for quick interchanging of runners. Another major difference is the Liner and Outsole construction which will make the X500 more durable and longer lasting than the X400.

Is the X500 equivalent to the old X50 model?

Asked by: JoTL
The X500 is a bit better than the X50. the 500's are heat moldable and have removable runners which the 50's didn't have.

In your opinion, is there a major difference between vapor x5oo and the supreme 160?

Asked by: jearle66
Yes, Supremes and Vapors fit very differently. The technology that each model features in their skate every year changes which will cause different features and materials in that particular skate.

Is the stiffness of these skates ok for a 6'1 230lbs man?

Asked by: Opie645
The X500 will not have the same stiffness as the upper level models, as it is constructed using a tech-nylon quarter panel. However, one player's stiffness preference is not the same as another's and there are more variables that one's size that could factor in. Skating style, strength of stride, level of competition/amount of use, etc. could all make a contribution to the necessary stiffness of a skate.

I am a size 12 in most shoes and also have a pair of eastons in a 12 that fit me well.are the bauers sized similar to eastons?

Asked by: ll arms 64
You would probably want your Bauer a size smaller than the Easton skates you currently wear.

What are the major differences between these and the X600's?

Asked by: dclayton91
Not much other than the 600s being a little stiffer and a little higher quality. To me there is basically no difference.
