Regatta Ghyllbeck

Okay for most general walking. They’re never going to set the world alight, but if you’re planning on mostly walking at lower levels then they will be fine. The midsole offers enough flex for them to be comfortable on harder ground, but will lead to fatigue if walking on rough ground for long periods. There is quite a bit of space all round inside the shoe with quite a wide heel fit. There is quite a bit of padding in and around the ankle section, but that soon packs down after a few miles – be aware of this when trying on instore. Grip is fair enough for general walking, with a low ride height helping with ground feedback. However, when things get a bit slippery, the rather shallow lugs of the outsole can be found wanting a little.
