Bauer Vapor X60 Senior Ice Hockey Skates
Recreational and intermediate level players will surely enjoy the fit and features of the Bauer Vapor X60 Skates. The X60 Skates are not to be confused with the Vapor X:60 Skates released in 2009, the top model from that generation. This model is from 2013/14 and sits right in the middle of the current Vapor Line. If you're looking for comfort and support, the X70 Skates are a great choice, with white felt tongues that provide great lace-bite protection and a classic look. In addition, you may be surprised by this, the X60 Skates are only 5 grams heavier than the APX2 Skates, and they're acutally lighter than the X100, X90 and X80 Skates!
Like the X70 Skates, the X60 Skates also have the sturdy Pro-8 Beveled TPU Outsole and the new Lightspeed Edge Holders. The Edge holders are designed to increase the skater's attack angle with additional height in the posts. In addition, the Edge holders make runner replacement easier than ever, with quick-release triggers that allow you to remove and replace the runners in less than a minute.

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.

Best Skates Ive EVER Had
August 23, 2014
I got these skates 6 months ago to get out of an older pair of vapor skates that didn't really fit my feet to well.Ever-since skated with these at the rink my feet don't hurt anymore.My other skate also left really bad blisters, with these skates i have no problem.The light speed edge holder is one of the best ideas Ive ever seen. My best friend has a pair of CCM Tacks and he switched his holder with the light speed edge holder. With these skates Ive been able to turn more efficiently and Ive been able to get to the puck faster than anybody on the ice!!!! I can also out skate my friend and he has the Bauer supreme one.9 skates.When i just go to the rink just to skate i take out my runner and i clean it just to keep the life of my runners a little longer.So if your looking for a great affordable skate check out the Vapor X60 Senior Ice Hockey Skates from Bauer.
Pros:lightweight comfortable true feel sturdy good support Easy to break in
I would recommend this item to a friend.

Answer:We recommend that you take them to your local pro shop to have them baked by a professional. If that isn't an option, the best way to do it in your home is with a hair blow dryer. Hold the hair blow dryer about 1 inch above the opening of the skates and point it into the opening for about 8 - 10 minutes. Then put the skates on (with socks on) and carefully lace them up. Stay seated with your blades flat on the floor for about 30-40 minutes so the skates can cool down. Don't skate on them for at least 24 hours after baking.

Answer:The holders are aligned with a laser to ensure a perfect setting. The holder might not be centered perfectly, but they are aligned straight to the boot.

Answer:The Bauer Vapor X60 and Bauer Supreme ONE.6 Hockey Skatesmatch up extremely closely when it comes to features & benefits. The Fit is really the only noticeable difference.

Answer:The Vapor XXX skates were the top of the line model at the time and were much stiffer than these X 60 Skates. If you're looking for performance quality comparable to the Vapor XXX Skates, I'd recommend the new Bauer Vapor X 80 Skates or Bauer Vapor X90 Skates. They'll provide greater support and durability.

Answer:It's an understandable concern since this is a fairly new feature, but Bauer has done extensive testing on these holders and have ensured that they are very well-designed and will keep the runners securely in place. They've been on the market for over two years now and we haven't had a single complaint about the runners coming loose.

Answer:The X60 Skates will be just a bit stiffer than the X15 Skates, but the padding will also be a bit better over the long term. Also, you may want to check out a set of inserts for the tongues and ankles to provide some additional comfort (ignore the Bauer TotalOne Tongue Inserts - they have a different purpose that will not serve your needs).

Answer:Yes, you can heat bake these skates for a more customized fit.

Answer:The CCM RBZ line of skates and the Bauer Vapor line of skates are extremely different styles of skates. The RBZ skates have a very wide, high volume fit with a deep heel pocket. The Bauer Vapor skates have a tapered style of fit so they are narrow in the heel area and taper out wider in the forefoot and toe box area. The Most comparable model to the CCM RBZ skates in a Bauer would be a Bauer Nexus skate. The most comparable model to the Bauer Vapor skates in a Reebok/CCM would be a Reebok Ribcor skate.

Answer:Yes the Bauer Vapor X 60 Senior Ice Hockey Skates would be a fine skate for your son to use. Be aware that the fit of the Vapor will be just a little bit narrower than the Easton skates he's accustomed to.

Answer:You'll likely need size 6.5 or 6.0 Mission & Bauer Skates. The older Mission skates were sized true to shoe size. The current Mission and Bauer skates require that you go down 1 to 1.5 sizes from your U.S. Shoe Size.
By Greg from LA on March 20, 2014

Answer:9.5 D would likely be the best choice for you.
By John from Minnesota on July 20, 2014

Answer:Yes, you can bake your skates twice. That being said, the X60 Skates do not respond to baking the same way that higher level skates do because they aren't made with thermoformable foam. Baking them may soften the boot a little, but they won't mold to your feet like higher level skates.
By Bill from Sweden on July 21, 2014
By Customer Service on July 21, 2014
Answer:It could be that you've worn them down to the point that they aren't offering the same amount of support that they initially provided. With lower level skates you'll find that this happens much more quickly than with advanced level skates. Since you're improving as a skater, you'll need more from your skates, so it may be time to upgrade to a stiffer model.
By kare from nw indiana on August 14, 2013
By Pat@HockeyGiant on August 15, 2013
Answer:The major difference between the two is that the X60 has the new Tuuk Lightspeed Edge holder with a trigger release that allows for much quicker and easier steel changes. The tongue on the 6.0 is a form fit molded tongue with built in forward lean and a high density metatarsal guard while the 60 has a 2 piece 40oz felt tongue with metatarsal padding. There are other smaller differences that our customer service department can point out if you want to give them a call.

Answer:The Vapor X60 Skates would actually be more comparable to the Vapor XXII or XVI skates from the 2007-08 line. The Vapor XXXX skates were the top model from that year. In 2009, the Vapor X:60 became the new top Vapor model. In 2011 the top model was the APX. And now, in 2013, the top model is the APX2. It can be confusing because Bauer has used the model number "60" twice now in the last 5 years. This skate, the Vapor X60, is in the current 2013 line of Vapor skates and is near the middle of the line. The older Vapor X:60 skate from 2009 is probably the one that you were thinking of when you came looking for a comparable replacement for the Vapor XXXX.
It's confusing, I know... Anyhow, in the current line of Vapor skates from 2013, the Vapor X80 or Vapor X90 skates will serve as suitable replacements for the Vapor XXXX skates.
