Easton Hockey will be quickly following up on their Easton Mako skates with the upcoming Easton Mako 2 skates. With an expected release in the Spring of 2014, the Easton Mako 2 skates will bring mild improvements and a new look to the skates.
As you can see below, one of the most prominent changes on the Mako 2 skates will be the outside appearance. Gone are the silver heels, silver accents, and orange accents as well. Some orange will remain on the boot, most notably on the Easton logos. The darker and meaner look on the Mako 2 skates appears to be a positive change for the Easton skates.
Many of the features from the original Mako, such as the CXN holder, asymmetrical design, and active tendon guard will all remain on the Mako 2 skates. However, Easton fans will at least get a new tongue on the Mako 2. While the changes might not be too drastic, the tongue is said to be more responsive, and will also come in white felt instead of black.
As you can see below, there are additional design enhancements throughout the skate. There will be upgraded ankle padding inside the boot, and Easton has also introduced a new moisture management footbed in the Mako 2 skates.
