I just got back into the game after a 10 year layoff. Initially I had been playing with my old college skates, thinking there was no reason to purchase new. After talking to my teammates and seeing the newer models, I decided to invest in a new pair, the Vapor 5.0's. I had them heat molded, my foot is a EE size, and they were a perfect fit.
The first day I skated I noticed a huge difference in my cutting, stopping and quickness on the ice. The weight of the skate is a fraction of what I had been playing with, so I could see a boost in my speed. While lightweight, the boot can take a hard slapshot and keep you protected.
If you're looking for a great skate at an affordable price, this is the one for you.
