    Default Question about Baeur skate width..

    So i have some Bauer Vapor X1.0s size 8.0 R. When i bought them I thought they were okay, fit wise, but they had felt a pressure in my forefoot, on the sides. They guy told me baking them would probably help it out, which I did get. So i thought maybe I needed to break them in, after skating alot now they still hurt. So i was thinking of selling them somewhere, and buying some X2.0s or X3.0s from Hockey Monkey cause they have them for really cheap right now. But Im not sure what width to get.

    TLDR: Mine are size 8.0 R, is R the normal one? And on the new skates i want they have the option of D and EE. Which one is wider than R?
    So i just need one that will be wider than than my current one, but Not so wide that my ankle is loose. Should I drop down to 7.5? seeing i have some room in the front of the skate.

    Thanks!

    too bad those are a size too big for me or I'd give them a try....my old Bauer's are 6 1/2 D, which is the regular width. EE is super wide. I need 7s now in my "old age"...my feet have apparently gotten longer. But try to go for a little more expensive skate if you can....those Vapors are the cheapest ones, aren't they? Although I still like my old Bauer Professional 95s (which used to be the cheapest ones) better than my Supreme 4000's. But the cheaper 95s are smaller than the Supreme 4000s even though they are the same size. I can't wear the 95s any more at all. Try to get something with a little more ankle padding and you will be happier, I'll bet.

    So, my long-winded advice is to try going down a size in a better skate, and stick with the D unless you have an incredibly wide foot.

    Also, every skate model have different basic characteristics in general, even with the same manufacturer. For example, the Vapor line is "tapered" and has a narrower fit and feel than a Nexus in the same size and width, even though they are both Bauer.

    What LetTigerIn said is very true. I have a pair of Vapor X5.0s in 8.5D (which were an upgrade from my old Vapor X). I have a narrow foot, so the Vapors fit me perfectly. Try on different skates and see which one fits the best, Bauer, Graf, CCM and Reebok are all gonna fit differently.

    Alright well, I think I might just go into the shop on thursday and try other brands then. The only reason i wanted to see the difference of width size between R and D and EE is cause of the price of the vapor X2.0s on HM..

    I have size 7.0 D Bauer Flexlite 4.0s, I bought a second pair of discontinued Bauer Flexlite Apollos off ebay for cheap. I thought they were 7.0Ds but when they arrived were 7.0EEs.
    I thought they wouldn't fit but I can hardly notice the difference. Anyway, the EE was not a lot wider than the Ds. Maybe you should go to the retail store and try them on if you hae been having problems with fit.

    { R } { D } { EE }

    D is wider than R

    EE is wider than D

    I wear Graf's at the moment and am on the cusp of their "R" and "W". My friend whom is a manager at HM recommended the "R" with baking and punching. I followed his advice and went that route. It took about 3 or 4 separate punchings before they finally felt right, and fit like a glove, sans any discomfort at all. I think I have a thread on it in this forum, but it was a long process for me and now that they are finally dialed, I love them...but for the longest time I couldn't stand them.

    What I'm trying to get at is I believe it might be better to get a skate that is a hair too snug that you can get punched out rather than having a skate that is too big/wide to begin with.

    Grafs are one skate where you hate "HATE" the break in. But once they are broken in and set to your foot. You never change to any other brand.

    I guess I just got really lucky. I played a game 5 hours after I bought and baked them, and I had zero issues.
