Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris Great skates for the money
I'm newer to skateing and wanted a good state that did not break the bank. After trying on several cheaper skates I tried these. They are very confortable and I'm glad I baught them. The bower vapor line has several that are more expensive than these but they are the first in the line that is a high quality skate for the money.

Best skate for the 200$ it offers the removable blade with the push button and definitely helped me mid-game playoffs didnt even have to leave the ice. Got on the bench and the equipment manager snapped it off and *poof* a new sharpened blade right their. Definitely buying this skate again when mine get too bad for use

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andrew Excellent for skaters with narrow feet
Vapor X60's have a great design for a narrow foot; snug yet not tight around the entire heel radius, supportive throughout the mid-foot and plenty of room in the toe box. My sneaker/shoe size is 10.5-11 fairly narrow with low arches; purchased the Vapor x60 in size 9.5. Good response in hard turns without roll-out, and edges bite well with excellent energy transfer during hard strides. Unbelievably light - I think I have trail running sneaks that weigh the same - yet solid enough to shield foot from a decent slapshot. First 90 minutes of skating with thin socks, felt a bit sore just at the ankle bones yet I could have skated another 90 mins; soft socks and more break-in and I'm confident I could skate for hours with no fatigue. An overall excellent skate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mikemark Bauer vapor x60
The 60s are much more comfortable than the 70s.they are very light compared to my old skates and perform exceptionally Well. I bought a spare set of blades,which are better than the stock ones.Because of the light weight i had to experiment with different radius' on the sharpening .it's best to take them to a pro shop or hockey giant for this. Baked them ,and 3 hours of skating broke them right in! Also purchased a set of yellow super feet insoles.no problems at all!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nick Good skates but horrible sharpening
I bought the skates and then had them sharpened at the same store (Rockaway, NJ) and couldn't even skate as there was only one edge. I actually had them sharpened at another Dick's in upstate NY and they said it was a horrible job as well.
