they don't fit like the XXX's so if the XXX's fit you properly you should look elsewhere...

wider or narrower???

local hockey shop says different.
they say the 60 is closer, in fit, to the XXX than the XXXX
they say the X60 fits better wide feet.

it's never that straight forward... go try them on and see...

however it's back to a reverse triangle fit (narrower heel -> wider forefoot) and it's a deeper cut than any vapor before...

go try everything on and close your eyes on the brand...

I just skated in mine for the first time yesterday, and they feel amazing. I had mine baked and they feel broken in the first time out. They have a more aggressive forward pitch than my old Vapor XXX but it took me maybe 20 minutes to get used to. They maybe run a tiny bit bigger than the XXX, so be sure to try them on before getting them. I was a 7.5 with a little bit of wiggle room in the XXX, I moved down to a 7 in the X:60 and they fit perfectly.

They fit wider. I have very wide feet, and I fit into a 9EE perfectly. They are VERY comfortable, most comfortable I have ever had. Virtually no break in period.
