The X:30 is a mid-level offering in Bauer's Vapor line of hockey skates. Like most of the models in the Vapor line, the X:30 has a nylon upper with a thermoformed X-Rib pattern that will fit comfortably to your foot. Like the lower level X:20 (and most of Bauer's mid-priced hockey skate offerings), the X:30 has hydrophobic microfiber inner lining that is designed to keep your feet dry (though it is not Quick Dry like the higher level X:40 model). Also like the X:20 model, the X:30 has a lightweight Pro-8 TPU (ThermoPlastic Urethane) outer that will protect your foot while letting you go at the speed you want. This is not at the same level as the fiber composite outsole of the X:40 model. Unlike the X:20, the X:30 has a two-piece tongue with metatarsal guard that will protect your feet from sticks and pucks, and the Superfit footbed with stabilizer grip (a feature of higher level Vapor skates). While the X:30 has insta-form foam ankle pads, they are not the lightweight kind that the X:40 has. There are size options available for the Bauer Vapor X:30 hockey skate.
