Bauer x60 or Bauer XXXX- skate feedback & differences
 
i'd like to get some feedback regarding my next purchase. i tried on the x60s and one100s. it's tough to tell without skating on them...let alone without a baking. i currently have been skating the bauer 8090s with superfeet for the past few years. i need a stiffer skate and one that will fit my foot extremely well. i'm mainly concerned about which skate is more narrow?? i'd like to find out which one of these skates will ultimately have the better hold on my smaller heels and regular width foot.

- i wanna make the right choice.

thx

edit: changed thread title to see if i can get feedback/input regarding the differences between the Bauer x60 and xxxx (see below).

Vapors are more narrow. The Supremes fit closer to the 8090s but are deeper, the heel is also a little wider.

I went through same process a few weeks ago. I really wanted to fit into the Supreme line (just because I think they look classic and understated), my foot fit way better then the Vapors. With my narrow feet the Vapor was a much better fit.

thanks guys....i will try the x60s on again. i thought i was for sure going with the supreme line, but from my readings most people are saying to go with the vapors due to being more narrow. a couple reply's really helped :yo:

You realize that the skate you've been skating in is wider right?

thx TBLfan

yeah....they fit well except for the heel. i didn't throw down for the vapor xxx back in the day. through that time i've skated more and more. hence this time around i am making sure i pick the right skate. i guess i didn't have the hf resource or the know how or even took the appropriate measures. i have enjoyed the 8090's though.

update....it appears i have some new vapor xxxx pro stock 7 1/4's lined up.

- i'll change the title of the thread to see if i can get feedback for the differences bw the x60 and the xxxx (i'll also check previous threads).
