The materialistic elements of the underfoot inside the Escalante’s is formulated to replicate the feel of being barefoot which may help you leverage a more effective forefoot strike that’s more easily sustained during running.

If you’re looking to excel at your next half marathon or full marathon, the Altra Escalate can deliver the results you need. Even though the Escalantes is thickly cushioned, it feels like an aggressive road flat that’s lightweight and fast AND its the perfect utility to help you sustain responsive mechanical effectiveness, which in large part, is where economical sufficiency comes from.

"I believe the forefoot strike is the engine of endurance running..."

BSc Neurobiology; MSc Biomechanics candidate, ultra minimalist runner & founder of RunForefoot. I was a heel striker, always injured. I was inspired by the great Tirunesh Dibaba to try forefoot running. Now, I'm injury free. This is why I launched Run Forefoot, to advocate the health & performance benefits of forefoot running and to raise awareness on the dangers of heel striking, because the world needs to know.
