Last year Easton debuted a brand new product line with their Mako skate. The focus of this skate was on pure speed and a maximum range of motion. This year, they have made advancements on that skate and are introducing the Mako M8! The M8 is second to only the Mako II in Easton's skate lineup allowing you to get top-level feel and features, without the top-of-the-line price! Like the Mako II, the quarter package is unique on the M8. It features an inside edge that is 5mm taller to provide extra support when cutting or cornering. The outside edge, being 5mm shorter, provides full extension and increased stride length. The pivoting 'Extendon' Tendon Guard allows the player to get the maximum amount of power out of every stride by allowing a full range of motion. When it comes to heat molding, there isn't a more responsive boot out there. These skates need more than DOUBLE the time of a standard skate baking, but it's worth it! In regard to the bottom portion of the skate, the CXN holders sit taller than a traditional holder, giving you more power out of every turn and stride, just like it's predecessor, the original Mako.

RATINGS & REVIEWS
Rated 5 out of
I bought these for my girls for next season. My 11 year old was skating in Easton EQ40's and said these were a big improvement. Not as bulky and we're pretty easy to get used to. I did end up getting her superfeet inserts and that cured the little bit of pain she was getting. My 8 year old was skating in Reebok 12k's. She took to them right away. She was much faster, her crossovers and high speed turns were vastly improved. I didn't think skates would make as much of a difference but these really did. She says they are even more comfortable then her shoes. In fact the first time she skated with them she did a 2 hour camp then wanted to stay for free skate after. She ended up skating for 3 hours that day and loved it. When she found out they might not be made anymore she asked for the next size up. Highly recommend these skates.

Too bad they're discontinued
Got these at a discounted price. My 10 year son loves them, but upset they're no longer making them. My son has wide feet and got him EE; they didn't need baking and according to my son, super comfortable.

PRODUCT Q & A
Do skates have to be baked? I'm guessing this gives a custom fit but is it a good idea for junior skaters who are still growing?
Skates do not have to be baked. The goal of baking skates is to get a more custom fit. Typically, junior skaters will still bake their skates to get the best fit. Skates can always be re-baked if necessary.
