Alexander Ovechkin’s Sochi 2014 Olympic Hockey Gear

Alex Ovechkin shared a picture of his custom Sochi 2014 Bauer APX 2 skates via Twitter earlier this week. The skates, seen below, feature white/blue/red stripes, much like the Russian flag. He’s also using black felt tongues instead of the stock white, and of course yellow laces.

One of the biggest questions surrounding Ovechkin’s skates, is why they are not the OD1N skates which were previously featured. He was expected to be wearing them along with a few other Bauer athletes, but no one has seen them in Sochi yet.

In the other two pictures below, you can see Ovechkin is using a pair of brand new Bauer Vapor APX 2 gloves, colored nicely to match the teams jerseys. He’s also using a Bauer Total One NXG stick featuring custom graphics for the 2014 Olympics.

  1. Personally I think the skates look a little off. The classic, shiny black skates (APX 2) are by far one of the hottest looking skates around. Really disappointed that there has been no sightings/use of the new OD1N’s though.

    The stick however looks cheap. It reminds me of a almost Warrior Bentley like stick with intricate graphics than can not be seen unless looked closely upon. The best sticks I have personally seen are the individual country’s sticks for the Easton V9 and V9E. Those are a prime example of good custom (and ingenuity) of a custom stick (for one’s individual country).

    • Couldn’t agree more. Although I do think the best looking skate that will be released will either be the CCM Tacks skates or the Mako 2, just my opinion.

      And the stick does look a little cheesy I may add.

      • The skates and stick do look a little cheesy but what are ya gonna do, it’s not like they’re selling them and I can’t see how they coulda done it better. Personally I think the nicest looking skates have to be the reebok 20k’s white version.

        • Thats the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. The best skates you have seen are white Reebok 20K’s? Number one they are hideous and I automatically know that you are bad and know nothing about the game by saying that. And number two Reebok is straight up garbage, those skates are terrible. Any of the Bauer skates or even the RBZ and Tack skate are 50 times better looking and better made skates than that.

  2. Are his tongues pro stock made custom for him or are they retail Apx 2 tongues with black felt? because i notice when he was using the original Apx skates, his tongues were slightly longer then the retail Apx tongues.
