The Art Of Speed.

This is the core design principle powering the Makos. The entire skate has been engineered to seamlessly bridge the gap between a design idea and the body's natural movement. This is a principle that states that the more closely a skate can match the body’s natural shape and movements, the more speed, the more agility will be produced.

One of the first elements to embody this philosophy is the actual shape of each boot. No longer is one a carbon copy of the other. When viewed from the back, the inner side of each ankle is cut lower than its outer counterpart. This patent-pending asymmetrical pattern allows each skate to better fall in line with the direction of travel.

When cornering or exploding down the wing, the asymmetrical design allows for a more aggressive skating angle. Changing the angle at which your leg/ankle extends from the boot, allows you a more powerful stance and keeps the boot in line with your natural movement – leading to more speed and powerful cornering.

The newly redesigned Extendon™ Guard is now a functional part of the boot. With each stride, the guard flexes with your lower calf and quickly returns to its original position. This promotes a fuller stroke and quicker foot recovery – think of it like having a built-in spring pushing your foot back into place before each stride. You’ll notice a faster stride frequency with less energy used.

As a hockey player, being in the ready position at all times is an absolute must - this is especially true in areas where the initial split-second burst of speed is all the difference between making the play and watching it go by. The CXN Holders help you do just that.

The heel of the holder is pitched higher than normal holders, keeping your heel raised so that you lean forward on your toes. This puts you in the aggressive forward stance for explosive first strides. You’ll be positioned in the ready stance at all times with more weight over the front of the skate.

The bottom line is the Mako’s embody speed. They are a great looking piece of equipment, extremely comfortable, and feature design innovations that set them apart from the pack. Aggressiveness is the name of the game out on the ice and no skate is more ready than the Mako Ice Skates by Easton.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good I bought these skates after the Bauer x 80s. They are the most comfortable skates I have ever had. I have heard about all of the new features of these skates and I really like all of them. Sometimes you have to tighten the bolts on the extendon guard and holder but overall great pair of skates

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely unlike any other skate I purchased a pair coming from Bauer Vapor X20s and then my most recent pair Bauer Nexus 800s. I purchased the Bauer Nexus skates a year ago, and although I liked them, I felt too much negative space. The Makos run very narrow and a 1/2 size up from Bauers. I would stick with the same width as the Bauers if you switch brands. I would completely agree with the last review. These skates are revolutionary. Completely different feel. Literally no break in and zero negative space. I can't say how durable they are, but there's no comparison in terms of comfort and feel on the ice. The only complaint I would have is that the upper part of my ankles had abrasions the one time I wore low socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unreal Skates Like many, I heard all of the "hype" surrounding these skates when they first came out. I wanted to mostly write it off. But, I admit it, I was intrigued. At that time, however, I was already in a pair of Bauer Supreme TotalONE NXGs that I was pretty happy with. With the recent price drop of the Mako skates (due to the pending Mako II skate release), I decided to go ahead and pick up a pair. I have only skated in them for a few hours. So, I can't speak to their long-term durability, for example. But, what I can say is that I have NEVER owned a more comfortable pair of skates (once baked). I have a Haglund's deformity (a heel spur causing bursitis at the base of the Achilles tendon) of my right heel which is quite painful and I have found that I do not even need to wear my Bunga Achilles heel pad when wearing the Mako skates. (Wearing my NXGs without the Bunga had become agony.) Beyond the unreal comfort, Mako skates also provide unreal mobility. My crossovers are much stronger and I skate with a deeper knee bend even with the Mako skates laced all the way up to the top eyelet. (I would skip the top eyelet on my CCM CLs and NXGs due to their "work boot" like height and stiffness.) I must say that I have also never been able to tight turn in any other skate as well as these. I believe the main reason, for me, is the slightly more forward pitch (compared to stock Bauer, CCM/Reebok) of the boot/holder/runner combo. I find that it allows me to really "sit" into my turns and be a bit more on my heels while turning aggressively than any other skate. (Except, possibly, Graf.) This is because there is no sensation that I may lose my balance backwards if I go just a little too far. Where I would sometimes have an untrustworthy outside edge on my lead skate, these bite into the ice so well with being able to really get down on them that I am probably going to go to a slightly less deep hollow the next time I sharpen. (90/75 rather than 100/50.) I could write even more, but it's still all just talk. At the end of the day, every hockey player owes it to themselves to simply try these at some point. Easton hit a homerun.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY I was so excited to buy the latest and greatest skates on the market at the time. I waited for the Mako's to come out and bought them. Took a few weeks to break in but were great. Best skates for the first month until the broke down. First the blade holder cracked and broke off after taking a mediocre slap shot off of it. It was replaced because of the warranty. Then after a couple months I noticed my left skate was a little wobbly and I could not push off effectively like before. After closer exam I saw a small crack in the inside bottom of the boot. No wonder I could not push off, the blade was wobbly because when I pushed off it would give a bit I called Easton warranty and they said if it is a boot issue it is only covered for 90 days. Wow for $800 you would think they would cover it for a year. I only had it for 5 months. DO not ever spend this much money on skates ever again. $200-$300 range would be better. Save yourself from heartache.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most innovative product in years No company has come close to revolutionizing skating like this. Provided you have the patience for a 15 minute heating session, this is the skate for you. Putting my foot in reminds me of the solid sound of a door closing on a high end car. Phenomenal fit and feel. Flexibility on the ice is unparalleled. I would never go back to my NXGs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2 months Been using this skate for two months, and two pairs have broken already. Love these skates, but this is ridiculous. On one pair my holder broke the first time I ever used them, and now after two months my other pair has a heel that has rotted out, causing my blade and holder to move when I turn, causing me to fall. I used Bauer all my life, thought I would try these, but I guess I should switch back now

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Feel As soon as i put these skates on my feet they felt great. Walking around in them also felt great. I ran into problems when stepping on the ice. I felt like i was on my tip toes the whole time and my accleration wasnt the greatest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Skates Ever When I first saw these skates I thought they were disgusting then when Easton invited me to try them I bought them the very next day. feels like Im just wearing sneakers they are so comfortable.

I am coming from Easton EQ 50 / size 9.5 D in what I feel absolutely comfortable. What size should I order if I am switching to Mako's.
Asked by: Heipfam
There is a size chart on the item page that you can use for a reference. We usually suggest going down a size and a half from your shoes size (ie Size 10.0 US shoe would be a 8.5 skate).

Are these skates stable for an old timer

I haven't skated in 25 years my last pair of skates were CCM Tacs that I bought in 1972. Are these a stable platform that will give me support but comparable or maneuverable like the old leather skates?
Asked by: Flash
If you were in some Tacks the Mako will have a completely different fit and feel. Probably the most narrow skate out there today, the fit is very streamlined and the break in time will be significant to get them feeling like "old leather skates".

What size should I get?

I'm a goalie who plans on converting these to goal skates and currently am wearing the old Bauer supreme one80 skates in an 8D. Thanks in advance.
Asked by: Heipfam
These Mako's are running a little tighter than most. I would suggest you would be a 8EE or and 8.5D.

Width for Usual Bauer Wearer

I am a 9.5 regular and bauer and I am wondering if I will need to get the 9.5EE in these makos? I tried then 9.5D on in a store and they were a little tight..
Asked by: Anonymous
Depending on what line of Bauer skates you are coming from you may need to bump up to EE width. We have found in most cases people that have been primarily in a D width in other brands have found the EE in the Mako's fit more comfortably.

Do these expand at all when baking?

I tried these on in a store and they fit a littel tight width wise...will they expand at all when baking? they only had a 9.5 and the length was perfect..but i am just wondering if the width will expand just a little bit?
Asked by: Anonymous
The will not expand with the initial baking process but they will conform to your foot after several wears. They are a very narrow skate and we have noticed a lot of people that are normally a D width bumping up to EE in the Mako's.

What are the special baking instructions for the Makos?

I know how to bake my skates and normally it's a similar process but I've read that there are special time/temp instructions for these.
Asked by: Heipfam
Yes for the Mako's the time in oven and time on your feet are increased. Instead of 8-10 minutes in the oven Mako's should be in there for 15-18 mins. Sit with your Mako skates flat on the floor for 15 minutes.

are these good for low arches (flat feet)?

Asked by: Heipfam
Real tough to say as skates fit and feel is based off personal preference. i can tell you the Mako's run extremely tight to the foot and lot of people who have been in a D in another skate have opted for EE in the Mako's.

Will the Bauer Tuuk LightSpeed Edge Holder fit these skates?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. The rivet pattern between the Tuuk LS Edge and CXN holders is identical. In fact, the overall length/width/shape of the tops of the front and rear towers of both holders are almost the same as well. (No interference issues.)
