The Bauer Nexus 800 Ice Skates represent a strong runner up for top spot credentials among the entire Nexus line and feature many of the same performance enhancements found in the top Nexus 1000 model. Providing support is the compression molded EVA foam quarter package. This lightweight foam quarter is heralded among engineers for its dynamic lightweight and strong structural properties. A pro tech-nylon material wraps the quarter and provides an additional layer of support while adding minimal weight.The interior features a retro tan Clarino liner that is treated with anti-microbial and moisture elements which help keep your feet feeling great all game long. Locking the heel in place is Bauer's patented pro-integrated heel/ankle cup that reduces foot movement and thus improves energy transfer. A fully heat moldable upper works in unison with the Anaform ankle pads and transforms the skates from one-size-fits-all, to one size fits you exactly. Giving you a unique fit and one that translates to improved agility when on the ice.An ultra thick 2-piece anatomical felt tongue with molded metatarsal guard provides some reassurance when blocking a shot from the point. Form-Fit+ Grip footbeds with heel stabilizer reduce internal foot slippage and flow nicely into the Ergo-Toe cap, which reduces the gap between the boot and toe cap, improving your comfort level.Full composite outsole directs the slightest movement to the ice and saves weight in the process. TUUK LS2 holders and runners round out the package with a tried and true combination.
