Easton made waves with the release of their original Mako skate. With the help of Olympic speed skater Dave Cruikshank, Easton brought us a boot with a unique fit and feel unlike anything we had seen before. The Mako II remains true to the concept that natural movement equates to speed on the ice. With a lower cut and an asymmetrical boot design, the new Mako II allows for an incredible, uninhibited feel with maximum range of motion, all while featuring a few welcomed improvements.
The Reinforced Carbon Composite Bootform is ultra-lightweight and provides pro-level stiffness and support while allowing the boot’s upper to consist of a relatively soft, Polyurethane Casting; the result is a fit and feel unlike any other boot on the market and a skate that doesn’t inhibit a player’s natural stride. The Asymmetrical design of the Mako II features an inner quarter package that rises 5mm higher than the outer, providing added support in tight turns and cornering. Easton’s patent pending Extendon™ tendon guard provides just the right amount of support while not becoming overbearing or restrictive.
Easton also focused on offering a boot with unmatched comfort. By beefing up the padding along the high ankle area on the Mako II, Easton was able to alleviate the irritation experienced by some with the original Mako boot. A new, woven, hydrophobic liner with microfiber feels smooth to the touch and performs well at wicking away moisture – keeping both your skates and feet dry. A new, upgraded tongue, comprised of felt and HD foam, features additional injected metatarsal protection. This metatarsal injection helps protect against both lace bite as well as oncoming pucks. Lastly, a Tri-Density Ortholite footbed with Moisture Wicking Topcloth is added for a true 360° fit.
The Mako II sits atop Easton’s CXN holder. With an aggressive blade pitch that allows the player to get over the front of the skate and drive more force into the ice, the CXN keeps you on your toes and on the attack. Easton’s ES4 runners come standard with a nine foot radius and consist of the highest quality, stainless steel for long life and great edge retention.
In a market where stiffer seems to always equate to better, Easton is pioneering a new path. If you’re looking for a skate that will work with your natural skating stride, rather than against it, check out the Easton Mako II today!

These things were pretty hard to get on first time, had to unlace fully to get my foot inside and twist a bit. But as soon as they came out the oven and got tightened these things fit better than my old skates I'd been wearing for the past 8 years. They moulded to my feet instantly after baking and after the first skate I knew I had made the right choice. Rocker/Angle took a couple of skates to get used too as I play D and skate backwards alot, but so far the early impressions are good ones.Review by Russ (Posted on 10/4/2016)
I received these skates as a warranty replacement of last season's Makos. They feel and fit exactly the same. They have the same great technology which makes them incredibly comfortable and awesome to skate in.Review by Gary (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I only have concerns because the previous Mako's disintegrated after only 6 months. I know that this was a common problem with the skates and am hopeful that Easton has rectified the issues with the durability.
I started working in a pro shop a year ago, at which point I didn't have very good knowledge on the market of skates so naturally - being part of my job - I started researching. From an exterior point of view, there was once a time where I wouldn't be caught dead in the bizarre skates that were the original Mako's. But once I did some research I was intrigued by the concept of such an out of the ordinary skate. So I asked my boss if I could take a pair out for a rip and by the end of the skate, I loathed the fact that I had been obligated to purchase a pair of Ribcor's that had been ordered for me. After I fell in love with them, they're all I wanted to sell. I pumped out about 20 pairs in 3 months and for a small shop in Perth, Australia that's not a bad achievement.Review by Reynexxx (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Don't get me wrong, the Ribcor was a great skate, it served me well this past season where I was playing/training 6 times a week. But I still couldn't wait to get my hands on these.
So, the new Mako 2's arrived in my store 2 days ago.
They feel just like the originals, and I have seen that Easton have tweaked and fixed a lot of the errors in weak spots and defects that affected the original generation. I've only skated in them twice, haven't head molded them and they already feel like a dream. Turns are sharper, my stance is more aggressive, stride is longer and more powerful. Once you've adapted to the aggressive pitch on the skate you'll never go back. Being brand new I can't say much for durability yet, but summer league starts up in a few weeks so they'll soon be put to the test.
Don't be as reluctant as I was, AT LEAST try a pair on the next time you're in a shop. You'll soon see why there's so many people raving about these.
Let me preface this with saying I have NOT yet skated in them. I'll provide an updated review later once I haveReview by z1ggy (Posted on 7/24/2016)
These are hands down the best fitting skates I've ever tried on. There's literally no negative space, with exception to a bit in my upper ankle area, due to my skinny/boney ankle. This can be fixed by using a heat gun and pressing in that area. These skates are extremely heat moldable so they can fit any shape or type of foot.
I'm very excited to get these on the ice.
I've had 4 skates in these, 5th tonight. These skates are such a step up from my Vapor XXV's. The steel is much better, and holds an edge longer. The skates are also very comfortable, but are a true D width if you get them in that size. I had to punch these out a bit because of a protruding foot bone on the outside of my foot.Review by z1ggy (Posted on 7/24/2016)
The only con I have so far is the runner seems to come a bit loose and I get that famous "clicking" noise when walking on them. A quick tighten with the provided screw drivers fixes this problem, but it seems to come back. May be worth removing the screws and putting some lock-tight on them and retightening.
Will provide a long term review in the future. Amazing skate. Do not buy another skate before you at least try these on.
I've only had these skates for a week and a half and I've skated in them for about 2 to 3 games and straight away I found out what all the talk was all about. It was a pretty difficult task on putting them on because of the shape of the boot, but after a while you will get use to it. I was absolutely blown away with how well the fit was, it was almost close to perfect. I would recommend playing around with the lace tying a little bit however to adjust the tightness of the skates. (After dealing with slight compression in the tounge area). Skating around in the makos is such an amazing experience. I've never felt so sharp yet so easy flowing. Using the edges is an absolute wonder, doing nothing else but gripping and gripping. Also I would like to point out that the Makos are fast.... very fast. I would recommend these skates to anyone, but not everyone. These skates are narrow and the feel is incredibly weird. But I'm so glad I made the choice to wear these after living with bauers for over 2 years reffing hockey games up to four times a weekend. WAY TO GO EASTON!!Review by Adam (Posted on 7/24/2016)
