Yep. Do it.
My boyfriend just got these after rocking c02s for years and years and years (one highback was literally held together by a bandana I donated to the cause one day) according to him, the Malavitas are almost as good as brand new c02s. Spends most time in the park, but also shreads down groomers, and not so groomed mtn runs.
Soft baseplate cover means squishy (in a good way) heel comfort, and rigid construction means ultimate control elsewhere.
Once they showed up on Whiskey, prices all over the internet plummeted. Dog Funk now has them for $155 + shipping which is a great price.
5 of 5 stars, can't find anything better on the market these days.
