Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

Even though the Escalante’s outsole is smooth and tractionless, slap a pair of DueNorth wearable spikes on and you get reliable traction without compromising comfort or weight of the shoe!

The Altra Escalantes can be transformed into an excellent snow running shoe with DueNorth ice spikes which are lightweight, feels fast and delivers solid, aggressive traction, helping you roll over the snow like a tank.

"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.
