Sticking with the X60 because these are just disgusting.

Agreed, I think they'd look way better in just black and grey.

It's a shame these are so damn ugly because they're really a perfect skate. Boot, pitch, and forward flex of a vapor combined with the ALIVE composite from the supreme line.

I'm sure they'll come out with a limited edition and hopefully they'll be all black because these things look like they belong on a ****ing roller rink.

It's a shame that someone would pass up a great boot because of looks. I really like the look of these, but I have an unhealthy fondness of red...

I'm already thinking about Supremes because they look better than the current Vapors. Yikes!

I'm sure they'll be good skates, top of the line Bauers are almost always fantastic, but good god are they ever ugly. Never liked the style of the Vapor line in general though, I'm more of a black skate purist, plus my feet are built for Supreme's anyways, only skate that has ever fit my foot real well. Still rockin my absolutely ancient Bauer Supreme 2000s actually!

They fit very differently, good chance you will fit in either the Supremes or Vapors, but not both, don't pass up a better fit for the looks.

I don't think they look that bad. But then again, I love everything I wear to be flashy.

Yeah, fit comes first when the time comes to upgrade from my CCM Vector 4.0s.

But I have to admit I'm hoping for the Supremes.

I loved to look of the x40's so I tried a par on but they felt awful, so now I'm rocking one70's and loving them.
