Every so often, we are presented with a limited edition opportunity from the manufacturers to get our hands on a limited supply of equipment. In this case, Bauer has offered the Supreme One. 9 White LE skates, complete with white boot coloring and white toe caps!
The Supreme skate series was designed for the power skater who looks to maximize the energy from every stride. They have a standard anatomical fit profile, which means that you'll get a nice snug fit in the heel, but not quite as snug as what you would experience in a Vapor series skate.
Bauer uses its Curv® composite in the quarter, purposely built with a measured balance of lateral support and forward flex. This also makes the skate very lightweight and incredibly responsive. The heel and ankle padding on the inside are nicely contoured to the shape of your foot, as is the nicely sculpted shape of the composite shell. This design plus the fact that these are heat moldable is going to get you a great 360° fit right out of the box and drastically reduce break in time. If you've never heat molded a pair of Bauer skates that have the Curv® composite, it's pretty amazing how soft and pliable they get in that heated state in order to be able to mold to the shape of your foot.
You get excellent lace bite protection from the two-piece design of the felt tongue and the high density foam guard which also helps protect you while blocking shots. It's a nice robust tongue, but still allows for a good amount of forward flex. It has the full lightweight composite outsole which further reduces the weight of the skate and it provides excellent rigidity under the boot thus reducing torque while you skate.
So if you're a power skater that appreciates a responsive boot with a significant amount of lateral support all in a pretty sick unique look, check out these One Point 9 White LE's. But don't wait too long, because once they're gone . . . they're gone!
