Details

Vaughn has taken its expertise in goal equipment and applied it to the all-new GX1 goal skate. The GX1 goal skate is ergonomically designed to meet the unique needs of a goaltender to achieve maximum performance and comfort.

At the base of the GX1 skate, a unique patent pending forward pitch boot allows the goaltender to be in an anatomically correct body position for the quickest movements around the crease. The forward pitch of the skate moves the top eyelets to better position for a goalie’s stance, allowing for more flexibility and wider stance. A wider toe cap gives superior fit to the front of the skate, keeping the foot more firmly seated in the foot bed for more control. The ankle area features tighter ankle pockets for a precision fit to allow the foot to stay properly positioned in the boot and prevent heel lifting.

A large tongue with an ultra-high density molded inner core and an orthopedic felt base is designed to spread lace pressure and provide cushioning against the instep. The boot is complimented by a pure carbon fiber outsole, designed to give maximum support to the boot and reduce fatigue-inducing flex. The boot is lasted and molded under heat, resulting in a precision fit that is less likely to deform over time.

The boot is set in Vaughn’s brand-new cowling, utilizing some features never before seen on a goal skate. The cowling has an angled inner edge to provide a secondary stopping point that allows the goalie to get a more aggressive angle to the ice. The cowling toe cap features a double-thick design for increased protection against hard shots. The cowling is also designed for full boot and foot protection, however has two trim lines, allowing the goaltender to reduce weight for those preferring less foot coverage. The cowling is complimented with a 4mm stainless lightweight runner.

Good for wide feet

Coming from some questionable old cracked-cowling second hand skates, it took some getting used to boot.
About the Boot:
Before I was wearing a bauer vapor boot size 7.5 EE. I tried on a few different sizes and decided to go with a size 7 regular Vaughn skate. My feet didn't even hurt at all when I skated in these! For reference my forefoot is wide and my heel is pretty average. (So a little bit like a duck.) If you have a wider forefoot, but your arches aren't flat and your heel is about normal these are a really good fit.

Steel:
Okay so as expected, the steel was kinda bad. There is only so much you can fix with bad steel, like profiling. And you get what you pay for, but a completely straight blade should be standard even with the cheapest skate.

Felt good on the ice.

When I got these sharpened with my regular person, Brian, at Pick Wick Ice Gardens skate shop, the blades profile was slightly off. No big deal. He just first did a sharpening to correct the profile and gave my usual 3/4" sharpening. First time on the ice was a slight adjustment for me. My previous skates, Graf 7500's probably have the shortest blade length wise. I had used Bauer One100's before the Graf's, so readjustment of a longer blade to give me that extra push in my lateral movement, was not that big a deal for me. I can say with confidence that these Vaughn's have a somewhat close to comfort of the Graf's, but have an advantage of the forward pitch and allowing the front of your foot to lay flat inside the toe box. I'll sum this up by saying, these skates are a cross between traditional style skates(like the Graf's) and somewhat of the modern style skates(in regard to allowing better pushes side-to-side), while adding Vaughn's own design to really helping alleviate cramping/discomfort by allowing your feet to adjust the skate and not the skate forcing you to adjust your feet(if you know what I mean).

You have to give this skate an chance, but be smart on how to fit it correctly

I tried these skates and I was like oh my gosh, my feet hurt! But here's the thing, you can bake the skate and they still take it back! Just don't get the blades sharpened or your stuck! Once I baked them in the store, oh my they fit my feet like a glove! If you end up with a profiling issue with the blade, so be it as that price is minor towards the price you can get these for right now. The forward pitch and flattening of the foot area in the toe box are why I like this skate a lot. I'm coming from Graf 7500's that I got a 1/2 size too small and my big toes were rubbing against the toe box inside. Graf's are still the comfortable tennis shoe of goalie skates, but the Vaughn's are not too far behind.

Worth It

1. I purchased the skates before reading the reviews. Not good
2. After reading some of the reviews, I already knew the blades were going to be a problem, so I did the common sense thing and had the shop profile the blade (cut the blade to make it even)
3. Also, I lowered (cut) the profile on the cowling and got some wax laces, to lessen weight and maintain the grip
4. I had my shop cut my blades to the most shallow hollow ( for my style).

-- Overall, yesterday was my first game with them on and I must say, there was a 5 minute period where my feet were screaming, but after that I was flying. Overall, I think if you are conscious of your style and are on a tight budget, these skates are excellent. They have awesome toe protection and the high ankle support helped me out a lot. I wouldn't pass on these if you're on the fence, just be aware of its flaws and fix them before you go out on the ice and you will be happy you didn't spend 500+ on something just a bit more gimmicky.

love the boot, HATE the steel

I love the way the boot feels. I had read other reviews stating that the blade was wonky, and yes, mine needed profiling. I like the way the cowling is attached. I understand that Vaughn now uses Step Steel, but you have to buy it through a Vaughn dealer. For those of you considering this skate but want to use a Bauer cowling, beware that you may need to use the next size cowling when you have a half size (i.e. a size 7 Bauer cowling does NOT work with a size 7.5 Vaughn skate in my experience).

Thank you

Thank you to the above review, I went to a local shop and before going to buy these skates I read the reviews. I saw that he had some issues with the curve of the blade, that only his toe and heel were touching the ice. Before payment and sharpening I asked the skate guy to check the skate blade, just to be on the safe side. when he looked at it he saw that it was in fact the same as the other one. I was able to avoid a mess and my skates are perfect. and they fit amazing!!!!

Great skate

I have tried on almost every current skate on the market. I wanted a softer boot that will still offer enough support for my style of play. I generally wear a size 11 shoe and I fit well into a size 9 skate. I was pleasantly surprised as I never thought I would like Vaughn skates, but these are the right boot for me!

Comfy skate

Coming from Roller Hockey and now playing Ice a few times a month, these skates are an easy transition. The weight feels the same from what I'm used to from playing Roller. I ordered them blind offline because I truly love Vaughn products and they are the best. I had them baked at my LHS and sharpened them to 5/8" which is perfect for my beer league.

Underwhelmed

I bought these to replace my 15 year-old Grafs. While shopping, I tried Bauer and they were very comfortable, but I was a bit concerned about the higher blade and how long it might take to get used to that. I found the newer Graf skates too heavy, and CCM & Reebok were not comfortable.

I take size 9 to 9½ shoes and ended up with size 7 in the Vaughn GX1. Very comfortable in the store, but couldn't duplicate the same feel on the ice. The advertising makes it seem like the boot is going to fit like a glove, but it doesn't. That was not the worst thing though. I felt like I was wearing speed skates ... I was stumbling all over.

I ended up taking them to Tydan Blades in Dundas Ontario, and the shop owner put up a 30' profile template against my blade. It was actually concave! We were both shocked -- he said I would have only had the toe and heel touching the ice. Now it made sense, but nonetheless I had to spend more money to get the blades profiled. Ridiculous. These were brand new skates.

I have now played about a dozen times since the profiling and they are much better. Still, they offer no improvement over my Grafs (which I would have kept, but the blade was down so low I was practically skating on plastic.) I expected to be wowed, but as I said in the title, I was underwhelmed. Considering trying to sell them and opting for Bauer.
