Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

Even though the stack height of the Altra Escalante is a bit high (25-mm) for my liking, the outsole is still incredibly road-worthy and is a better alternative to stiff, unresponsive traditional running shoes.

The Altra Escalante has more cushioning than a racing flat, but has foot strengthening-boasting features that will definitely help revive your feet to levels not often experienced in traditional running shoes.

"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.
