Question about the Bauer One55 skates.

I needed to buy new skates because I was getting some serious lace bite. I had an old pair of Bauer Vapors I think they were like XI or IX. Anyways, I bought a pair Bauer One55s and played on them tonight. Completely got rid of the lace bite problem and was extremely comfortable on the ankle. The only problem was that the boot feels super narrow and my feet were killing me.

My question is, will this go away? Does it just need to be broken in? I read some reviews and people love it "after" the break-in period. I just don't remember that I needed to break in my Vapors when I got them. I know they make an EE width for most skates but I didn't think I needed one since all of my previous skates were regular fit.

I really don't want to have to buy another pair of skates but they feel super narrow. I'm hoping its just the break in period.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

the Supreme line is wider and deeper than the Vapors. So, assuming you for the same size you should be ok.

Baking and breaking in should help.

Where on your foot was it bothering you the most? A lot of spots can be punched out.

^^^ Ditto. If the width of the Vapors was OK the Supremes will be more than accommodating. Give them time, bake them, and get some hours on them, they will feel much better.

Thanks guys I was hoping thats what it was.

I'm just having pain on the sides of my feet, where the widest part of your foot is.

I bought them on Saturday and had them baked, then they had me put them on and into this machine that had these airbag type things for about 20 minutes.

I was thinking of putting a shoe stretcher or something in there to help stretch it a bit.

Gonna try and play on them again tonight.

Should I have gone with EE width?

Does anyone here wear skates with the EE width? How do they compare?

If you had D width Vapors in the same size and they didn't bother you then you should be ok with D width in the Supremes.

Were the skates you had out when the XXX (2005) or XXXX (2007) was the top of the line? Vapor IX (2007) was a lower end skate and would not have been as stiff, only came in one width. You might just be experiencing a longer break in period with the newer skates as they are a mid-higher end skate.
