Bauer Vapor APX Shin Guards
The first thing veteran skaters will notice about these pads is that they feel like theyre right off the shelf in the '90s. Luckily, I only mean that in the sense that they feel old school, because they perform and last like the cutting edge new pads that they are. The strap system is what feels nice and familiar for a lot of skaters, since many other pads are outfitted with new, higher straps. It should also be noted that the pads thin out very nicely at the bottom, which allows skates to fit very comfortably without stretching your tongue (if you like to tuck in your shin pads).
