Bauer Vapor APX2 Ice Skates
These skates are the best because theyre made to meet all the needs of an elite skater. Theres almost no break in time and theyre easy to transition to if youre switching brands. Theres no lace bite, but there is a pleasantly thick tongue (the top of my foot actually feels protected for once) which helps to cut down on retying. Theyre also extremely flexible to aid in sharp turns, yet tough enough to block any shot without hurting your foot. Theyre just simply the best, most well rounded skate out there, and it will help you feel comfortable and confident, no matter how you play the game.
