Customer Questions & Answers for
Easton Mako Ice Skate

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 bodys 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 it spring pushing your foot back into place before each stride. Youll 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 all new 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. Youll be positioned in the ready stance at all times with more weight over the front of the skate.The bottom line is the Makos 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.

Do you HAVE to bake these?

You can naturally break them in, but baking them is highly recommended. The materials are designed to bake and they can do that for you in the store. Only takes a few minutes and the results are amazing. If you try to just wear them to break them in, you will find that it will take much longer and will not really form to your foot as well.

For sure, though I would not. Easton has consciously designed the blade/holder combination with a radical forward lean and it works. I would urge you to try it for a while before you automatically go back to the Tuuk.

Yes, you can change the holders. Depending on the manufacturer you decide to go with you may have an extra visible rivet hole in the bottom of the skate, but this will not affect the integrity or performance of the skate.

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.)

You would be able to put the holders on the Mako's. The only issue you will run into is that the holes would NOT line up and you would be forced to drill new ones.

Question
I have achilles tendonosis.....
Essentially I have a bulge in my achilles tendon about 4 inches up from the bottom of my foot. The tears in the tendon fill with hard scar tissue and it can be painful at times. My Bauer Vapors cause me a great deal of pain. Due to the baking process of the Easton Mako, do they sound like a good skate choice?

I have Haglund's deformity of the right heel. It's commonly called a "Bauer Bump" and is basically bursitis (swelling/bruising) where the Achilles tendon attaches to the heal. I have gone through a lot of pain from it while wearing Bauer NXG skates. (Loved the skates. They just killed my heel.) Wearing a Bunga gel pad on my heel helped. But, I don't even need to wear it in my Mako skates. My only regret is that I didn't switch to these skates sooner.

If the Vapors were causing some degree of pain the Mako's are built along the same lines. The Mako's are the most narrow skate out there from the fore foot to the mid foot. The heel is were you will get a little room to breathe as the boot at the heel is a "regular" fit. Always tough to make the call unless you can get your foot in them. Even with baking the skates they will still require a significant time period to break them in.

Typically if you wear a wider running show you will be the same in an ice skate. The difference between D and EE is roughly a 1/4-inch.

Hoping to get sizing right on the first try.
I wear a US 10D in the Supreme one.9 that I own now and typically a 10.5 in Vapors, but they're absolutely riddling my feet with bone spurs. Was really interested in these skates. What size would be the best? I wear a 12 - 12.5 shoe.

Real tough to say without getting your foot in them, but I can say the Mako's are the tightest fitting skate on the market today. A lot of people who wore size "D" in other skates have moved up to the "EE" in these skates. I would suggest you looking at a variety of sizes including 10.5 D,10.5 EE, 11, 11. D, 11.5 EE are most likely your best bets.

Question
Holder pitch?
I'm using Vapors right now and I'm wondering if the steeper pitch on the holder will mess up my stride. Anyone switch from Vapors to Makos?

Have not heard of many people making that switch. I can tell you that if you want a super narrow heel to toe fit the Mako's are ready for you. The standard fit in the toe box and narrow V-fit in the heel/ankle of the Vapor's is nothing compared to the Mako feel. The steeper pitch of the Mako's does take a bit to get use to and can create some stride miscommunication.
