Bauer's new Nexus 800 Hockey Skates are built for competitive players who require top end quality gear. The Nexus 800 skates have many of the same great features as the Nexus 1000 Skates, such as the Clarino liner. The Retro Tan liner is hydrophobic, which means it is made to repel or wick away moisture. The Nexus 800 skates, like the Nexus 1000's, come with Bauer's Form-Fit+ footbed which has a stabilizing grip texture, heel stabilizer and a new protective feature called Ergo Toe Protection.

A few more features shared by the Nexus 800 and 1000 skates are the thermo-formable Anaform foam ankle pads, anatomical heel and ankle supports and thick, 2-piece felt tongues with molded metatarsal guards. The ankle pads and tongues provide a comfortable, customizable fit that will help keep your feet secure and protected. Riveted to the lightweight composite outsoles are the Tuuk Lightspeed 2 Holders with the LS2 Stainless Steel Runners. Although the LS Fusion Runners are not included, you always have the option to upgrade for a little extra pep in your stride.

The Nexus skates are built to accommodate players who need a higher volume boot. They're deeper and wider than both the Supreme and Vapor lines, so if you're looking for a comfortable, traditional looking pair of hockey skates with high quality specs, the Bauer Nexus 800 Skates are a great pick.

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.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

If you grew up on older (3000) more traditional skates, you will like these. I bought a pair of Vapors, they were too stiff for me and I couldn't adjust to that type of skate. I bought these, out of the box and onto the ice and they felt great. They are a wide skate, flexible and worth every penny.Thanks for listening Bauer.

I have to tell you that over the years I have tried em all in search for a high performance skate that fits my wide foot. I have spent way too much money in search of the ONE. Finally found it! Bauer Nexus 800....wide, comfortable right out of the box and TONS of ankle padding! Thank you Bauer , you hit a grand slam with this skate!

Given that I live in an area that doesn't carry much (especially in bigger sizes), if I was to try on a nexus 600 or 1000 for size and width, would it fit similar to the nexus 800? I am interested in the 800 but retailers near me only carry 600 or 1000.
By Customer Service on December 31, 2013

Yes, the fit will be nearly identical to the 1000 and 600, with a small amount of variance due to boot stiffness and padding. But, they are all built on the same boot last, so they'll have the same shape.

By Jonathan from Australia on June 14, 2014

I am about to start learning how to ice skate to hopefully play hockey. Would you consider these skate to be ideal to learn on if I plan on keeping them for a while?

Also I wear for example size 14 (US) Nike free joggers but size 13(US) in other types of shoes. Which size would you consider purchasing?

Thanks in advance
By Customer Service on June 18, 2014

Yes, they would be a great choice. They're high quality skates, but they won't break the bank because they're just below the top model. I would recommend size 12.0 Skates. D width will likely be the right choice if you've never had width issues, particularly with the Nexus line because they run slightly wider than most other models.

I'm a mid level referee trying to decide between the 600 and 800. Currently using my long life CCM Vector Pro's which have seen better days.
By Aaron @ on August 28, 2013

The Nexus 800 Skates are probably going to be a bit closer in comparison to your Vector Pro's when it comes to comfort, support and durability.

The Nexus 600's are a great performance skate and would probably serve you well, but I think you'd find them to be somewhat of a downgrade in comparison to your current skates.

I am a hockey player from the 70's and 80's. Just replaced my 15 year old Bauer Supremes with a Nexus 800's. Am I supposed to get these "baked"? (Never even heard of that until I shopped online for new skates). Amazing how skates have evolved over the years. Went with the Nexus because thought might be best suited for my needs and my long time love of Bauer skates. Please advise on the "baking".
By Customer Service on January 10, 2014

There certainly have been many changes to the way skates are manufactured over the last 15 years. Mainly, more composite materials are used in the construction of the skates, so they're substantially stiffer. This is what brought about the concept of baking skates.

We do recommend baking the Nexus 800 Skates because, like other high end models, they are stiff and the ankle padding is made to mold to the shape of your feet when heated up. If you're unable to have it done at a local pro shop, the easiest way to do it yourself is to use a hair blow dryer. Unless you have two hair blow dryers, I would recommend doing 1 skate at a time. This will allow you to more easily measure the amount of time that you spend heating up each skate.

Just set the hair blow dryer to high heat and point it into ankle the opening of the skates for about 10 minutes per skate. Don't just set the blow dryer down inside the skate and turn it on; hold the blow dryer in your hand about 3 to 4 inches away from the skate and try to rotate it and point the heat at each of the inside panels to get equal heat distribution.

After about 10 minutes, the skate should be warm enough for you to slide your foot in and then lace up the skate. Be very careful as you lace up the skate because the material that holds the eyelets in place can become soft when it gets hot and if you pull too hard on the laces it could cause the eyelets to pop out. The best way to avoid this is to pull the laces out to the sides as you tighten, rather than straight upward toward your body. Once the skate is laced up and comfortably tight. Stay seated with your blade flat on the ground for about 25-30 minutes. This will give the material enough time to cool down and harden in the shape of your foot. The less you move around while it's cooling, the better your results will be.

Once you're finished with both skates, wait about 24-48 hours before skating so that the material has an opportunity to become completely set to the shape of your foot. If you feel like there's a spot in the boot that didn't quite bake properly the first time, you can go through this whole process 1-2 more times. We don't recommend baking more than 3 times because it can weaken the boot if you overdo it.

Baking the skates will help reduce the break-in time, but you should still expect that it will take about 5-7 hours of hard skating to really get them broken in.

What kind of skater are these skates the most suitable for?

By Customer Service on April 21, 2014

They're well-equipped for advanced and elite level skaters, but of course there's certainly no harm in using them if you're an intermediate level or even beginner skater.

By Jordan from Buffalo NY on December 27, 2013
I am a mid-level referee that has the old Bauer gold skates I'm a big guy with wide feet and I'm looking at either this skate or the 600 Nexus model what are the major differences?
By Customer Service on December 27, 2013

The short answer is the Nexus 800 Skates are lighter and stiffer. The long answer is that the 800 Skates have a lighter, higher quality runner; stiffer, more responsive quarter package; a more comfortable liner (Clarino); thicker tongues; a lighter, more rigid outsole (which is a plus for the big guys); and an upgraded footbed with Ergo Toe Protection.

Personally, I would go with the 800 Skates because they'll provide good support for a longer period than the 600 Skates, which sounds like it will be especially important as you are a larger guy and will put more strain on the boots.
