I was wondering how much of a difference I would see going from these older Bauer Vapor 8's to last year's Vapor XXV's or XXXX's would make. The current skates seem comfortable still, and are in pretty good shape. Would it be worth it to get a new pair, or should I keep playing on the old pair until they give out? What are the main differences between the old model vapor 8's and the newer boots?
Here's a pic of what the vapor 8's I have look like, since it appears they have changed quite a bit over time.
It's apples and oranges my friend. That skate was made from a classic Bauer design, and it fit like a classic Bauer skate fit. I don't believe last years Vapors share that type of fit.
