Bauer Vapor X70 Junior Ice Hockey Skates
Bauer's new Vapor X70 Skates are at the top-middle of the 2013/14 line of Vapor Skates, perfect for competitive players at all ages. Speed is the name of the game, and Vapor Skates are designed specifically for just that. The patented X-rib boot construction helps produce a highly responsive boot design for top speeds and maximum energy transfer.
The boot quarters are abrasion-resistant to maximize durability and long-lasting performance. Protection is not to be underestimated when dealing with skates, and you'll be more than satisfied with the 2-piece anatomically shaped tongue with an integrated metatarsal guard to protect you from lace bite and light puck impacts.
In addition to the excellent, lightweight boot features, you'll also find comfort in the lightweight footbed with integrated heel support for extra stability as you cut and grind. Riveted to the Pro-8 Beveled TPU Outsoles are the new Tuuk Lightspeed Edge Holders. The Edge holders are taller than traditional holders, which increases your attack angle as you're taking tight turns. The holders also have a special trigger mechanism which allows you to release the runners with ease to quickly make blade changes on the fly.
The Vapor X70 Skates are packed with great features that make them a solid choice for intermediate and advanced level skaters at an accommodating price point.

Bauer Junior Hockey Skate Sizing Chart
|Bauer Junior 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.

Answer:They are of equal quality, placed in the same position in their respective product lines. The X 5.0 Skates are from 2011/12 and the X70 Skates are from 2013/14. The X70 Skates get the upper hand here though, because they come with the new Lightspeed Edge Holders, which allow you to replace your steel much more easily and also increase your "attack angle" by increasing the height by 3mm.

Answer:They're from two different generations. The X 7.0 Skates came out in 2011 and the X 70 Skates are from 2013. The X 7.0 Skates are much more advanced than the X 70 Skates. They're lighter, stiffer, more durable and protective because they are designed for highly competitive players who are playing at elite levels. The X 70 Skates are great mid to advanced level skates, and they serve the needs of most competitive players. They are right around the upper middle of the 2013 Vapor line, while the X 7.0 Skates are just one model below the top of the line Vapor APX Skates.

Answer:Size 2.5 D or 3.0 D Junior Skates would be the best choice for him. 3.0 would give him extra room to grow, but 2.5 would likely provide the best immediate fit for the best performance.

Answer:The X70 Skates can certainly do the trick, it just depends on how much he requires from his skates. The X80 Skates do provide additional support, particularly in the outsoles and quarter package, which are more rigid. The tongue is also more protective and the footbeds are a bit more supportive and comfortable. The X80 Skates also come with the LS2 Runners which are said to hold their edges longer than the standard stainless steel.
