Easton Mako Hockey Skates by Will Keegan

These ‘Lightweight, thermo moldable high end, Easton  hockey skates ‘ by Will Keegan have been beautifully designed & executed –

‘The Easton Mako was designed with an all new approach to hockey skating with a more natural athletic position in mind and a concentration on moldable fit. 

Design cues all center around enhancing and communicating these principles through aesthetic and performance problem solving with an expert olympic medalist skating coach and an engineering team providing development support. ‘ – Will
