Protecting Toe Caps


AG37

Recommended Posts

Transitioning from roller to ice, it seems that I still drag my toe a bit. In roller I do not use a toe tie, but a snug boot strap. Ice I use skatelace with some slack and a loose bootstrap. What's the best way to stop this from getting worse? As you can see I put some Velcro over part of it but it only stays on for a skate or two.

Its hard plastic, nothing serious is going to happen to the toe caps.

Get a cowling. :P

I'm assuming you're dragging your toes while in your backside recoveries and general sliding?

I have that on my skates too - and trust me when I tell you that they appeared before I could do a slide of any kind - LOL!

Looking at it a while back I noticed that (at least on mine) the scuffing lines up with the screws/washers that hold the toe bridge, so I assumed it was from that. Factor in the movement of rotation, loose toe ties, etc, and it makes sense. Cosmetically, when your skates aren't on, it is a bit disappointing, but like @SaveByRichter35 said, it really isn't an issue as far as protection.

Of course this is from a 2 month career goalie currently on the IR, so...

      So I got a custom set of Bauer Vapor X900’s but the sport gold colors don’t match. I talked to a rep from Bauer and he said it’s the way they different parts are on the pad. The base color sport gold seems lighter while the vapor logo looks more orange. They said this is because the base color is printed and the vapor logo is cut out and placed on. If you ordered a custom set like this how would you feel if the colors were different like this?

      @TheGoalNet's post on IG today (providing insight into an image posted by @bauergoalie) got me thinking... has anyone gone into detail (with images) on the differences between the 1X vs. 1S/2S strapping, knee landing, and calf wrap?
      It's interesting so many guys opt for the 1X, and not being a Bauer guy I haven't been staying up late struggling to figure out which would be best suited for me as I play around on a customizer. (I just troll topics on thegoalnet.com late at night.)

      Just got back into playing goalie again after a 5 year break because of a leg surgery that took me out of the game heading into my freshman year of college. It's been a fun handful of months back, and now all I can think about is gear I used to see nonstop when I was way younger. One line specifically I can't let go is the old Nike Bauer Supreme line, probably going on 10 years old at this point.
      Wasn't crazy about the catch, but loved the blocker and especially the legs. Do any of y'all have any experiences/stories/pictures??
      also, longshot, but if anyone by some chance has a set of the legs ranging anywhere from 28+1 to 31+1 laying around (one55, one75, or one95, I really don't care) that they'd sell me that'd put me over the moon. Nothing I've ever put on felt as good as those did to me.
