The Nexus skate series is where tradition meets technology, for the player who is looking for maximum comfort and explosive acceleration.
They have a classic fit profile, which means that you sit deeper in this boot with more wrap and width than what you would experience in either of the Supreme or Vapor series skates.
Bauer uses an ultra light weight yet robust Tech Mesh quarter panel in the boot. It is fully heat moldable to help you achieve an optimal fit with minimal break in time. This construction provides pro-level support and also allows for efficient energy transfer between you and your skate. Beneath the hydrophobic retro tan Clarino« liner, the deep V heel fit is enhanced with very generous anatomical foam ankle pads that not only provide a great amount of heel lock, but also make the skates very comfortable right out of the box. The Nexus 1000 also features Total Edge comfort which helps alleviate abrasion high on the ankle.
Double lace bite protection is achieved from the two-piece design of the ultra-thick pro felt tongue and the molded metatarsal guard which also helps protect the front of the foot while blocking shots. This is the thickest white felt tongue that Bauer offers, but for as robust as it is, it still allows for a good amount of forward flex.
It has an ultra lightweight vented composite outsole which provides a nice rigid platform for the boot and reduces torque under the boot while you're skating.
If you're looking for a top-of-the-line classic retro-style skate that is infused with current skate technologies, look no further than the Nexus 1000 from Bauer.
