Representing the best value for money the Bauer Senior Skates come in at around only a hundred dollars which is significantly cheaper than most other options, however they still come with the same great quality that you expect from a brand like Bauer.
The Vapor family of skates has become the most widely purchased model in Bauer’s easy 3-fit platform series. Basically the Vapor line, uses a standard V-put profile (standard width all the way through the toebox to an eventual narrower fit in the ankle and heel). This means the Bauer Vapor X300 has a more classic style fit.
Another great feature of this model is the great X-rib pattern, which was inspired by earlier versions of their OD1N concept skates. Labatory studies have shown this unique X-rib design offers massive improvements in the heel and ankle area, which augmented faster cross overs and really tight turns.
Basically what you are getting is a really cheap pair of skates that are tested for safety and performance. This is why they are our top pick for the best hockey skates for the money.
The stainless steel blades provide the player with a good mix of agility and balance. The ThermoPlastic Rubber (TPR) outsole construction provides support and power as you push off the ice.
Bauer lined the Vapor X300’s with a brushed nylon liner and completed the boot with thermoformed X-rib pattern tech nylon for a comfortable glide across the ice. The tongue is made from one piece felt for protection against lace bite and on-ice collisions. The Bauer Vapor X300’s also provide a one year warranty on the holders and 90-day warranties on the runners and boot.
