Comments: got these in may and all that you read about is true. These are phenomenal! Took about two months of playing to get completely used too but necessary. The boots comfort is perfect, you may need to heat gun some spots, but no big deal. The cornering and transitions in these are intense. The forward pitch is great too. The product delivers comfort, execution of natural movement, and quality(4months in and no wear).

Comments: I've had these skates for about 4 months and they are like no other skate I've used. These skates MUST be baked. Once they are, they mold to your feet as if they were custom made. The aggressive boat allows for a better stride, at least it has for me, and better turning. The only drawback is the color scheme. Easton should really consider making a 'blacked-out' boot. Otherwise, I really like the Makos.
From: Seeks, Philadelphia, PA
Comments: Very good skate I just got them 2 weeks ago and I am already impressed with the comfort. Baking it for 16 mins really make them feel like socks. Takes a while to get used to them because they are pitched forward. Once you get used to them they offer great comfort, put you on your toes, full stride, and excellent mobility. A must buy for elite hockey players in my opinion.
