Better Skate VaporXXXX or Easton S15

Looking for any info on which skate has the most to offer, personal prefrence or infor welcomed. My son won a pair of either or. He had a pair of grafs but they got heavy with sweat over the last 2 years I read about them both on Hockeymonkey lifted both skates and the S15 is lighter

Easton S15 - lightest skate made
Vapr XXXX - Alaround performance

Thanks for any help.

Is he able to try them on before he makes a decision? A skate can have every feature or be light as a feather, but if it doesn't fit right it'll do you no good. Do you know which model of Graf he was in and was he happy with the fit? Someone here might know which skate fits most similarly.

2x

If the skate doesn't fit right, it's not gonna matter what "features" it has. The worst thing you could do is buy a skate based on factors other then how it fit your foot.

For me i like Bauer skates over Easton's cause a skate a little bit heavier doesn't bother me but, see which one fits best.
