The Bauer Vapor APX2 Skates deliver the highest level of performance and quality that you can find anywhere today. Retaining all of the best qualities of the original APX skates, the APX2 skates have also been upgraded in several notable ways. Starting with the new holder, Bauer has introduced the TUUK Lightspeed Edge with its unique trigger release mechanism which allows the player to quickly and easily change out his steel in just a few seconds. The Lightspeed Edge Holder is also built with an additional 3mm in height to increase the skater's attack angle on tight turns. Along with the Lightspeed Edge Holders, you'll also find the lightweight TUUK LS Fusion Runners which are 27% lighter than traditional stainless steel runners.

Another brand new feature that you'll only find on the Vapor APX2 Skates is the Injected Stability Lacing System. What Bauer has created here is a one-piece eyelet strip constructed with the same durable material used to build Tuuk holders, which is triple stitched to ensure that it is stable and secure to provide the greatest amount of energy-return with each stride. This design is the first of its kind and delivers a substantial performance enhancement.

As you would expect with any top of the line model from Bauer, the APX2 Skates are also built with Bauer's best current features, including Curv® Composite quarters, the Hydra Max 2 Liner, Total Edge Comfort, Form-Fit 3 Tongues and Form-Fit+ Footbeds with Ergo Toe Protection. Each of these features provide the maximum amount of durability, support and performance value that Bauer has to offer, giving elite level skaters the edge they need over the competition.

The X-rib design provides structural support for faster acceleration and quicker turns. The angle of the boot is cut aggressively to allow greater forward flex.

Innovative one-piece construction maximizes energy return and provides increased stability throughout the life of the skate and explosive energy transfer with every stride. The new stability lacing system reduces the amoint of total energy lost vs. traditional construction allowing the player to exit turns faster while increasing acceleration for more energy transfer to the ice. The new lacing system will help make each crossover quicker allowing the player to experience faster feet for maximum on-ice performance.

Moisture wicking and abrasion-resistant with integrated comfort wrap. The Total Edge Comfort minimizes wear and tear around the top of the ankle.

The new Lightspeed Edge holder is designed and developed to provide a greater angle of attack through an increase of 3mm in overall height. The player benefit is sharper, tighter turns due to having a greater ability to get lower in the turn without "bottoming out". The Tuuk Lightspeed Edge also features an innovative trigger system that allows the player to change his steel in a matter of seconds without missing a shift or playing any time.

Revolutionary runner design fusing the strength and performance of Bauer's elite stainless steel with high-grade aluminum, reducing the weight of the runner by 27%.

Form-Fit+ performance with enhanced comfort in the toe area. The toe-protection feature can be customized to a specific player's needs.

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.

Best Skates I've Ever Owned
May 25, 2015
I very much enjoy skating with these skates. It took a couple minutes to get used the height of the holder and blade, but I enjoyed the difference in speed and agility I had when switching to these. The only problem I have with these is the rivet on the ball of my foot. I would recommend thicker inserts to solve this problem.
Best fit I've ever had right out of the box.

First set of Bauers
March 7, 2015
After wearing CCM Tacks my entire hockey life (45 years) I was reluctant to try Bauer's but the fit and feel was far beyond anything I'd ever experienced with my CCMs. The great sales guy at HG took one look at my foot and said that these were the right skates for me with my narrow feet. Just putting them on and walking around they felt almost sneaker like, super lightweight. After baking them the fit was even better than I expected. On the ice it took a few skates to really appreciate how light they really are. My feet also felt far less fatigued then my prior skates and turning was faster and more confident. While the price is a bit high these skates are worth every penny. For those like me tend to stick to a specific brand you are really missing out on a superior product. These are best skates I have ever worn.

The best skates ive ever owned! Period!
February 24, 2015
These Apx2's cost a little but wow the fit and performance are the best of any skate out there! I would not hesitate to make this purchase again. There very light and it doesnt take long to break them in. If you play hockey and have the money buy these skates you will not be sorry they will even give another 10 mph on your slapshot! Ok maybe not but they will raise your game for sure!
Lightweight,short break in time

Best skates ever!
February 23, 2015
Ive owned Vapor X70's and X90's and even though the 90's were an awesome skate they weren't even close to the Apx2's. I will never regret spending the extra $ for the Apx2's neither will you!
Light, comfortable and short break in time make this skate a winner

Best skates forever
August 27, 2014
I loved the original APX. I didn't really need to get the APX2, but the thicker tongue made the APX2 the greatest skates I've ever worn. The Edge system is an added bonus of having a fresh cut waiting in my bag whenever necessary.
Elite conformability. Light weight and durable. Most appealing colors and graphic design of the whole Vapor line to date.

Excellent Skates!
August 20, 2014
I would recommend these skates for everyone. They fitted perfectly after molding and felt great within the 1st 2 skates. Very light and with the higher holder/runner made it easier to turn, change directions, etc..
Light, comfortable, fits like a glove

Best skates ever
June 24, 2014
These skates are AMAZING! Baked them when I got them and used them the next two days straight and absolutely no break in time needed. They felt great! The only thing that was a bit of an adjustment was the taller holder/runner. Other than that they are worth every penny!
Lightweight, stiff, no break in time needed, allows more agile turns

Expensive skates but worth every penny
May 18, 2013
Hands down the most comfortable skate i have ever owned. I have a wider foot so the Vapor line has the best fit for me, wide toe box, not overly stiff like the Total One NXG is, less of a break in period needed as well because its not as stiff as the NXG. Compared to the NXG and the Nexus this is better in my opinion, tailored to fit all types of feet where the NXG are more for higher insteps and narrow feet and the Nexus are for thick, wide feet. The APX 2 has more of a universal feel and a wide toe cap which adds to the comfort of the skate, and it really just hugs your feet in the perfect areas like your mid-high ankle and mid foot/instep area. Great skate overall. I would recommend to anyone who plays a high level of hockey, and is also not worried about the price as all of the top of the line skates are expensive now. If you're a beer league guy and want a good skate I would get the Vapor X 7.0, still a great skate at the 450 price point.

By todd from Pittsburgh, pa on November 2, 2013
Tried these skates on and they fit well in the ankle and toe box. There was pain on the arch on the inside of the left foot. Will that bake out? Also, currently use the vapor x7.0 in a 7 EE and tried on a 7 D in the also since my heel moves in current skate. Will there be a big difference in stiffness as well? My foot is wide in the instep but narrow in the heel.
By Jeremiah at on November 5, 2013

I would recommend going with the D Width if it fits well in all areas except the arch. If you have a local hockey shop, you can take the skates there to have them baked and then you can have the arches "punched out", meaning they well put your skates in a reverse vice grip of sorts, which pushes out the part of the skate where your feet are being pinched.

By Eric-da-barbaric from California on July 18, 2013
It appears that the ankle/heel is contoured for support. More so than any of the previous lines, is this correct?
By Pat@HockeyGiant on July 18, 2013

The Bauer Vapor APX2 skate has the same contour and support of the original Bauer Vapor APX skate.

By J Earl from Albuquerque, NM on June 6, 2015
I just received my new APX 2 skates. My shoe sizes varies between 11.5 & 12 so I went with the size 10 EE. The fit overall seems good once I got them laced up. The only pressure point is in the ball of the foot - will this be helped when i bake them? Heel is snug & front of foot has room to move in toe box but still feels snug but comfortable overall. I'm moving up from a VERY old pair of Super Tack 650's so I'm not sure what to expect. They are certainly much lighter for sure which will be great if the comfort issue isn't too severe....Thanks!
By Tommy @ on June 18, 2015

Yes, baking them should definitely fix the issues you are having with the fit of the skates. Since you haven't baked them, the ankle padding is pushing your ankle and foot forward in the skates because the padding isn't contoured to your foot. Once you bake them, and the padding forms to your foot, it will pull your foot and ankle back further into the skate, which should get rid of the issues you are having at the balls of your feet.

What size of a Tuuk holder on a size 8.5 EE APX2 skates?
By Customer Service on June 24, 2013

Most likely 280mm, but the best way to check is to look at the number printed on your holder between the back rivets near the heel.
