In this review, we are going to have a look at this new limited edition Bauer Supreme S36 ice hockey skate. Also, worth checking out the other brand’s ice hockey skates.
Bauer Supreme S36 Skate
TUUK Edge Holder
Starting below the boot a really great feature to see at this price point and a big upgrade from what we see in the S35 skates with the TUUK edge holder. This is the most popular holder in the NHL today big reason why is this quick release trigger system that allows you to swap out damaged or broken steel in seconds.
Another key upgrade compared to that S35 is that it’s just removable the other one is not so in case you do break your steel on the s35, you have to replace your entire skate or the holder runner combo but at that point just worth getting another skate.
They have a TPR plastic outsole with its new 3d injection polycarbonate boot. Both of these offer some really good entry recreational slightly competitive level of stiffness so ideal for those players that are looking to start really improving on their stride without it being too stiff.
The increase in stiffness help prevents premature breakdown over time so it’s going to maintain that level of stability over time. Featuring a limited edition black colorway that definitely stands out from the rest of the Supreme skates.
The same thing can be said about their cool sleek looking 30-ounce black felt tongue and it has some really nice thickness to it they did include some injected foams down through the center this offers good protection on the top of the foot from impacts as well as lace bite. And then pairing the black tongue with the black boot as well as the black liner really looks slick.
Into the liner, this is a really nice durable microfiber liner, soft to the touch but more importantly, it’s moisture-wicking. This keeps your feet dry locked into place all game long.
Bauer did a good job this year of increasing the amount of ankle padding with their memory foam. As soon as you get these delivered to your doorstep, you slip your foot into the boot. It has a really comfortable feel especially after you bake these at home where they mold around your foot a little bit better for immediate great step-in comfort.
For the fit profile, this is your standard medium width and that includes the overall forefoot width as well as the overall depth in the boot. This really does fit a vast majority of the players out there unless you know you have a very narrow or a very wide foot.
