Those are sick Aaron - how does the volume/arch line up with your foot? I’m considering pulling the trigger on a pair of customs but I worry they won’t get my instep right. I’m basically a vapor heel/forefoot with nexus depth/facing.


I just skated on them for an 1.5 hrs and can say the instep on my 2X Pro is definitely shallower than my 1X 2.0. The 1X 2.0 is a deeper fitting boot. The 3D scan measures every part of your foot including instep height, heel depth, heel width, ankle wrap, and arch height. Best thing to do is get your foot scanned and see what skate family it recommends you. You can always play around and adjust each above feature I mentioned. On both versions of the previous 1X skates, I had the usual pains during the "break in" period. Today I had zero issues with the 2X Pros. Very comfortable. I used speed plates today, so next time I will try the new dynaflex insole they provided and see if theres any differences in performance/fit/comfort.

Got a pair of custom 2X Pros done. I must say the 3D-scan technology is very precise. However, you should do the scan with the exact socks you plan on wearing. Do not do it barefoot if you do not skate barefoot. I talked to the guy at Bauer and he said people have made this mistake and end up getting stuck with skates that are too small. My right foot is a half size bigger than my left and these skates fit perfect. The turnaround time was fast too, took about 2 weeks. I compared them to the retail ones in the store and the silver is a lot shinier and metallic on the retails. It's more of a matte finish on the customs. Hard to tell in pics but in person you could see the difference. Also the new liners are more "grippy" on the customs. All 2x pros do not come with speed plates anymore, which is funny to me since bauer just launched the 2.0 version not too long ago. Seems like they ditched them quick after all the cracking issues.

Probably the Stamkos One95.



Nice collection. Does your OZ ADV have green on the back? Or is it normal
