Regatta Formation X-LT 2011

The Regatta Formation X-LT weighs 1044g (pair, size 11); Isotex waterproof lining; suede and mesh upper; stiff, supportive heel cup and toe box; rand on toe for durability; outsole has widely spaced lugs for grip in mud without clogging. But sole is bendy so not ideal on rockier ground; a more pronounced heel breast would improve braking; Isotex less breathable than pricier options.

The Regatta Formation X-LT is a good general-purpose shoe that’s fine for valley walks.
