Bauer Nexus 1000 Senior Ice Hockey Skates
Bauer's main goal with the Nexus line of hockey skates was to give players a different set of fit and performance characteristics than the Vapor and Supreme skates offer. At the top of the line, the Nexus 1000 skates are built with high quality materials and detailed workmanship to provide skaters with a boot that combines a classic retro look with high performance specs and features. The traditional fit of the Nexus 1000 skates is both wide and deep from heel to toe, perfect for players with thicker, wider feet than the Vapor and Supreme skates are built to accommodate.
The Nexus 1000 Hockey Skates are an exceptional choice for elite level hockey players. What separates the Nexus 1000 Skates from other top notch models is the combination of high tech specs and a classic, traditional boot design. Although the Vapor APX and TotalOne NXG skates are just a bit lighter, the Nexus 1000's are also lightweight skates, coming in at about 850 grams in Senior Size 9. Contributing to the traditional look of the boots, the liner is made with retro-tan Clarino and the achilles protector has two eyelets located along the top-edge. The modest yet modern design and stitching pattern of the boot quarters bears a striking resemblance to the Bauer 8090 Skates manufactured circa 2004/05. To complete the old school, traditional look, Bauer has added a thick, comfortable, white felt tongue. The tongue is thick enough to provide protection and comfort but flexible enough not to restrict mobility.
When you experience the Nexus 1000 Skates, you'll find that the boots are comfortable and supportive right out of the box, although you may want to take advantage of the thermo-formable boot in order to get a more personalized fit. The Nexus 1000 boot quarters and vented composite outsoles are rigid enough to provide solid support and flexible enough to give you the comfort and agility you need. Stops and starts are natural and smooth, and you'll be sure to notice the benefits of using the Form-Fit+ Footbeds with grip and moisture management, which help minimize foot slippage as you push off and dig in with the incredibly lightweight Tuuk LS Fusion Runners. The Tuuk LS Fusion Runners, which are 27% lighter than standard stainless steel, are also found on the TotalOne NXG and Vapor APX Skates.
Bauer's Nexus 1000 Skates, along with the rest of the Nexus line, are a welcome addition to an ever-impressive lineup of high quality Bauer products for players of all ages and skill levels.

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.
I would recommend this item to a friend.

I am a power skating coach for the Arizona Bobcats AAA program I have these skates on 7 days a week some days for more than 5 hours in a row. They are very durable, comfortable and lightweight.
Extreme comfort and natural feel

Bought this over the holidays to replace aging one95's, after countless times checking them out. I got them, went out to skate the next morning. My movement after only a few minutes felt natural to the boot. after getting them baked, felt more snuge and very comfortable, (I highly recommend getting them baked first. Heel will pop out but after baking you won't have that problem) Also not super stiff compared to the totalone or APX but still with enough stiffness compared to the flexlite line. Would highly recommend the 1000's to anyone.

Answer:There is more room in the heel of the Nexus skates than in the Vapor and Supreme skates. Bauer constructed the Nexus skates with a "Deep V" heel fit, which works as a heel lock to secure your feet in the boots. We can't guarantee than any skate will fit exactly the way you would imagine before trying them on for yourself, but we can tell you that the Nexus skates do have more room in the heel than Vapors and Supremes.
