The Bauer Vapor X2.9 Skates is truly the value buy in this year’s Vapor Line by providing better performance, comfort and fit at this price than ever before. Still used by 1000’s of pro players around the glove, the Tech Mesh quarter package delivers premium support and stability needed for playing competitive hockey.
With such a stiff boot, Bauer wanted to bring a new level of comfort to the X2.9. The new AeroFoam Padding blows up the stigma that elite skates can’t be incredibly comfortable too, not to mention they even lined the footbed with memory foam. The top of the foot wasn’t neglected either, the Vapor X2.9 features a pro-level felt tongue that protects and consoles one of the more delicate parts of the foot.
Anytime the foot slips inside the boot, power is lost which is why the Bauer Vapor X2.9 utilizes a hydrophobic liner. While soft to the touch, this material keeps feet dry and locked into place all game long. Also integrated into the liner are Comfort Edge Pads that wrap the collar in order to prevent the stiff boot from painfully digging into the upper ankle.
