Bauer's new line of Vapor Skates is better than ever, from the APX2 down to the X30 Skates. The X80 Skates are near the top of the line, just beneath the top of the line APX2 Skates, X100 Skates and X90 Skates. Built for quickness and agility, the X80 Skates deliver the goods.
Starting with the boot quarters, the X80 Skates have a lightweight tech mesh quarter package which is supportive and thermoformable for a custom fit. The abrasion-resistant bumpers add great durability to the outer shell of the boot to keep them in top form. The 3-piece tongue is anatomically shaped and has an integrated metatarsal guard for lace-bite protection and defense against impacts. Tongue comfort is one of the keys to a great fit, and you'll be pleased with the precise construction of the tongues on the Vapor X80 Skates.
Top models from the new Vapor line have also received an upgrade to the holders with the new Tuuk Lightspeed Edge, which has a quick-release trigger mechanism which releases the runner in a snap for quick steel changes on the fly. The holders are riveted to a rigid, supportive composite outsole that is also very lightweight. Adding additional comfort and stability, the footbed has stabilizer grips which enhance the power transfer in each stride and give you full control as you maneuver.

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 7 to 13 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 2 to 7 years old with a US youth shoe size of 7 to 1.5.
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.

My current skate is the Graf 705 in a 9.5 and is a very comfortable fit. I was curious if the Vapor 80 9.5
runs the same size as the Graf.
By Jeremiah at HockeyGiant.com on June 5, 2013
Answer:The Graf 705 Skates and Vapor X 80 Skates will provide a similar fit, but the heel of the 705 Skates is wider and the arch is a bit less pronounced than the Vapors. Otherwise, getting used to the fit of the Vapor skates shouldn't be a tough adjustment.

Answer:The Vapor X100's replaced the Vapor X7.0's. The X80's are on the same level as the X 5.0 skates.

Answer:It's worth the extra cash if you're able to swing it. If you're used to the Vapor XXV Skates, the X80 or X90 skates will be the most comparable current model. The X70 Skates aren't a "bad" choice for you, but I think if you're playing pretty competitive hockey and you skate twice a week, the extra cash for the X80 Skates will be worth it for the extra boot support and longevity. Plus, the outsole is composite rather than TPU, which means it will handle more torque on tight turns. Also, the X80 Skates come with the LS2, higher quality steel than the Super Stainless Steel on the X70, and the X80s have a thicker, more protective tongue and the boot quarters are fully thermoformable, which the X70's are not.

I have a pair of 2010 Vapor x:50, I love them but I need to change them. Is it the X80 the best replacement or should I go for the x 90?
By Customer Service on August 7, 2013
Answer:The X90's will be a closer match to your older X:50's. While the X80's have a few of the features on the X:50's, the X90's have all of those features and more!
