Malamute?

Tried these on in the shop and loved them but didnt have the cash at the time. Steep and cheap had them for fifty bucks cheaper and my size so bought them. Just did some more research and found out they are crazy stiff and im an beginner intermediate rider that just wants a freeride/allmountain setup did i screw myself damn it buyers remorse. Give it to me straight!

It's definitely a advanced free riders boot. If you are doing freestyle stuff, I think you won't like it. If it's just freeriding, give them a try. If you liked them in the shop, no reason you shouldn't like them from sac.

I liked them alot in the store and saw them on sac and thought ill get them. Then started looking around after i bought them and realized they are not really for my skill level. I will not be doing any freestyle at all. I was just worried they would be way to stiff for me to keep progressing.

this is my fourth season and i just picked up a pair of malamutes back in january. i think that while you're a beginner, they are still a good fit for what you want to do riding-wise, and your skill level should hopefully grow right into them. you never know, they could just take your riding to a new level. they are definitely a bit stiff, but they get a little better once they start breaking in. i would recommend getting a new footbed for them, though. it's all about the superfeet.
