Bauer Nexus 600 Senior Ice Hockey Skates
At the middle of the new Nexus Line from Bauer, the Nexus 600 Hockey Skates are built for experienced players who need support, comfort and high quality boot specs. The Nexus line offers players an alternative to the fit of the familiar Vapor and Supreme lines. Nexus skates are constructed wider and deeper than most skate models to address the needs of certain players who weren't able to take advantage of Bauer's high quality skates in the past. The traditional looks and fit of the Nexus 600 skates provide a comfortable, supportive option for advanced level players.
The quarter package of the Nexus 600 Hockey Skates is built with compression molded EVA and performance nylon, which contain thermo-formable Anaform foam ankle pads. The quarters and ankle pads respond very well to baking to give you a customized fit. Adding comfort, old school looks and plenty of protection from lace bite and impacts, Bauer added a thick, 2-piece felt tongue with a molded metatarsal guard. The Form-Fit+ footbeds have moisture management properties, heel stabilizers and a grip texture to minimize slippage.
With a lightweight fiber composite outsole, the Nexus 600 Skates are supportive enough for advanced level players and forgiving enough for beginners. Fixed to the outsoles are Bauer's popular Tuuk Lightspeed 2 Holders and Super Stainless Steel Runners. Comfortable, durable and carefully crafted, the Bauer Nexus 600 Skates are a great choice for moderate to highly competitive players.

Bauer Senior Hockey Skate Sizing Chart
|Bauer Senior Hockey Skate Sizing Chart|
|Bauer Skate Size||Shoe Size|
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.
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.

42 y/o and have played hockey for about 30 years. I am a fairly competitive player. The question I had when I bought them at Hockey Giant in Cherry Hill NJ was if there would be enough support. Bought Easton EQ50 skates with a regular D width (Easton has a narrow forefoot compared to other brands I guess) Crushed my feet, baked several times about 5 skates later gave up on them. They were a much stiffer boot also (compared to the nexus 600). I like a stiff boot. Last pair of skates was Easton Z-Air Comp SE from 2004. I guess my feet have become wide over the years (arches collapsing some), and didn't know the eastons were a more narrow construction. I heard from many who had to listen to me complai about the Easton SQ50 that the Nexus were wider in the forefoot, hence the switch. So, here is how the Nexus 600 compare. I had to get a EE width even in these. They felt great on the ice (first time on them was today), but they are definitely not as stiff of a boot. They were hardly like skating on a new skate at all. This turned out to be good. They felt ready to skate, basically like they were skated in ten times and broken in. The question is how will they be by mid season. I cut hard and lean hard when skating, and they did have enough support. No lace bite issues...overall, VERY comfortable for a first time on the ice in them. General impression - Certainly good enough support for a competitive skater without a need to break them in. Will find out about durability over the course of the year. Worth the price for sure. Comfort, support, and value. I would have bought the 800, but they didn't have my size in the store. Turned out in my favor as they were a couple hundred dollars less. I would recommend them. If I have durability issues, I will be reposting on here.
Pros:comfort and little break in time (really None). good performance and very low price.

I bought these skates recently and just started skating after having a metal plate put in my ankle... They are the most comfortable skates I've ever put on! Even with the tenderness of having a new plate they felt great! Pretty much no break in time needed!

Superb fit, comfort and feel. Old school look. Best skate since Bauer Supreme 3000 from 20 years ago.

Bought these skates a month ago at the Cherry Hill location. Since then I have played 4 games and one tournament (4 games) with the skates. All I can saw is unbelievable!!! No real break in period at all. Perfect fit from the sales guy that assisted me, baking was awesome, and they have performed. So much lighter and responsive then my old skates. I look forward to these skates lasting along as my previous Bauers. Thanks.
