Last year we brought you the Vapor X3.0 LE Skate with Black Holders, this year we've got the Supreme One.6 Skates. This HockeyMonkey Exclusive combines the Limited Edition boot from the Supreme One.6 Skate with the Black Lightspeed Holder for an awesome look that can't be matched. The Supreme One.6LE is available for a limited time which means once they're gone, they're gone!
The Supreme skate series was designed for the power skater who looks to maximize the energy from every stride. They have a generous anatomical fit profile, which means that you'll get a nice snug fit. The boot of the One.6 has medium stiffness, so if you prefer a softer boot than what you would find in the higher end models, this is a nice option for you.
Bauer uses a 3D Tech Nylon quarter which is relatively lightweight and quite durable. The heel and ankle padding on the inside are nicely contoured to the shape of your foot, as is the sculpted shape of the shell. The fact that these are heat moldable at this price point is not a given, it's an added value. It shouldn't take you long at all to break these skates in.
The two-piece design of the felt tongue plus the slightly higher density guard in the middle of the tongue is comfortable and helps protect from lace bite. Bauer uses its Pro-8 dual density beveled TPU outsole. TPU is a thermoplastic that is commonly used in the sporting goods and footwear industries. It's relatively lightweight and it provides a decent amount of rigidity for the boot to be mounted on.
If you're in the market for a skate with very good value, take a look at the Supreme One.6 skates from Bauer.
