Bauer Vapor X 80 Senior Ice Hockey Skates
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.
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.

These are the lightest skates I've ever owned, which makes sense because they're the most expensive too. I'm sure the X90's are better yet, but the X80's are a nice in-between with the upgraded runner and partial fiber outsole as compared to the X70's. They don't have a lot of padding inside, especially by the toe, yet they're still really comfortable, I can skate two games in them and my feet feel good. The steel is staying sharp better than my old skates also. Well worth the bump-up from the X70's in my opinion, kind of the sweet spot if you don't want to go all in for the APX2's.

This skate fits me perfectly! I have a wider foot than the average person and other skates would give sever cramps in my foot, even if the others claimed to be "wide". lightweight, high quality reenforced boot, with Bauers LS2 steel on the bottom has made for the most comfortable skate I have ever worn. In the past i usually bought a $100-$200 pair of skates and wore them into the ground or they inevitably broke. As of right now, these skates are lighter, more comfortable, provides more protection and ankle support than the $100-$200 level skate. I am hoping that it is year 4, 5, 6 that I can fully say this was worth the extra $300. That is the reason I only gave 4 stars, for now they are a much better skate than the $100-$200 level, but for them to be worth the extra $200 from the $200-300 level skate, I am hoping that time will settle that and i am just as happy with them 4 years from now that i am in the first year.

GREAT pair of skates!!!!!

The main reason why I bought these is because you cant find to many 13E skates. I had the x:40's before I got these. They where an okay skate coming from the supreme line. I just skated on the x80's for the first time yesterday. Reffed two hockey games and played one. They fit like a glove!!!! Very responsive and GREAT for quick acceleration. I noticed a huge difference between the x40's and these on turning, speed, and acceleration. These skates are AMAZING!!!!!! I thought the shipping box was empty because it was so light....These are the LIGHTEST skates I have ever skated on. These by far are the best skates I have ever owned and will buy them again!!!! I am a level 3 USA Hockey official, a college hockey official, and adult league hockey player. These skates are great!!!
Pros:Light weight Responsive Simply AMAZING
Cons:Price, but I wear 13e. Kinda get what you can..

I'm a bit confused with the sizes the Skates are available. I wear a size of 13 (31.5cm -->12.4inches) and it seamed to me that the size was available at your store.
Would you be so kindly to explain what is the biggest size available?
By Customer Service on March 24, 2015
Answer:The Bauer Vapor X80 skates are manufactured in sizes 13.0, 14.0, and 15.0 but unfortunately we do not have any of them in stock. They have been discontinued now and are being replaced by the new Bauer Vapor X700 skates. Also, Bauer recommends that you go down 1.5 sizes from your shoe size to find your skate size. If you wear a shoe size 13.0, you would be better off going with a size 11.5 skate.

Answer:Vapor Skates have a tapered "V" fit, which is narrower in the heel and progressively wider toward the toe box. The Supreme Skates are designed with an Anatomical fit, which means that they're very snug and will not provide much negative space or wiggle room. The Supreme skates will feel "tighter" in the mid foot and toe box than the Vapor Skates. Either way you go, most players are able to fit into both the Vapor and Supreme lines of skates. The fit is different, but the actual width is quite similar.

Answer:It sounds like you unfortunately ended up with a defective skate. As far as we know, this was not a widespread issue with that model. If you come across an issue like that within the first 90 days, Bauer will typically replace the skates outright.
That being said, I wouldn't be concerned about encountering the issue again with the X80 Skates.

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.

Answer:You'll be pleased with almost any current skate model as many improvements have been made across the board since your skates were initially released. I'd look in the range of $200-300. When it comes to fit, the 651 Skates were a bit on the wide side, so if you liked that fit profile, CCM RBZ, Bauer Nexus and Reebok Skates would all be good choices for you. They will offer the most comparable fit in terms of the width of the boot.

Answer:The X70 Skates would be a great choice as you're getting back into the game. I don't know how long you've been away from the game, but if it was any substantial amount of time, you'll likely find that hockey skates are much stiffer and more supportive across the board when compared to skates from the last decade. So the X70 Skates will likely be supportive enough for you as you get back into skating.

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!

Answer:It's going to be a matter of preference at that point because you'll get different opinions from everyone. But, in terms of performance, it's almost always better to go snug rather than loose. Baking will help bring the boot in just a little if the skates are too wide, but not a substantial amount. I would personally recommend taking a look at Bauer Nexus Skates in D width. They run just a hair wider than Vapor Skates in D width and they provide a very comfortable, traditional fit.
