Of course your 5K's will feel heavy, you're comparing a mid-level skate with a top end one. Not to mention newer technology has led to lighter skates as well. Check out the top end Reebok's if you want to see how they compare. You can also try the Bauer Supreme line, although Flexlites might be more for you as well.

How did they feel when you tried them on? But as thedonger said, Vapor's and Reebok aren't really close in terms of fit. Bottom line with skates, you try them on and you take the ones that feel the best. Not the best or cool looking ones.

They will soften up a bit as anything does when you break them in but top end skates are supposed to be really stiff. If you're not a great skater it might not be worth it. In fact, it may be even bad for you.
