Scarpa’s got a great reputation for touring and telemark boots. And testers have long admired the more traditional support and skiability of the Freedom series. But as AT/alpine hybrids go, it’s still more AT than alpine. On the descent, it’s the most powerful and quickest to edge of any Scarpa women’s boot, but testers said the best-in-category touring performance is still where the Freedom shines. “Great hike mode with good range of motion,” said Tischendorf. “Nice grippy soles, secure on any surface.”
