OUTDOOR TEST 2023: FRENEY EVO MID LTH GV
Freney Evo Mid LTH GV was recognized as “Outstanding” and won the Outdoor Test Edition 08/23 for Mountain boots by the Outdoor Magazin.
Every year Outdoor Magazin, the reference magazine for the German and international outdoor world, assigns scores to shoes and boots from different categories and votes the test winner.
The verdict on the Freney Evo Mid LTH GV:
“Asolo hits the bull's eye with the Freney Evo Mid LTH GV. It combines the first-class comfort of a hiking boot with impressive performance on rock and ice. The not-quite high-cut upper is made of thick, but nicely supple leather. It offers ankle support, but the low-to-the-ground stance and good midfoot support still make you feel safe even in wild terrain. Another strong point is the smooth lacing.”
The Freney Evo Mid LTH GV scored full points in almost all test categories and was selected among other mountain boots: it can even keep up with the most comfortable hiking boots in the test and clearly trumps them on the rock - a unique combination.
Freney Evo Mid LTH GV is one of the mid-cut models of the Mountaineering category in Asolo international collection and it is specifically developed for alpine hiking, via ferrata and demanding treks with heavy packs.
