The classic fit profile the Nexus name has become synonymous with features a traditional 'Deep-V? heel shape; and is Bauer's deepest and widest fit profile amongst all its lines.

The N9000 features a 3-piece; thick felt 48 oz. tongue with a molded metatarsal guard that provides comfort and protection whether you're blocking shots or preventing unwanted lace bite. The N9000 will also feature a Hydra Max 2 Mesh liner which helps wick away moisture and dries quickly; prolonging the life of the skates.

The Tuuk Lightspeed Edge holder has established itself as a game changer; and makes its return in the Nexus line.
