Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

Altra Escalante Review for Forefoot Running

I love that the Escalante’s outsole feels plush and bouncy and gives impressive motion return, making your stride feel pretty spring-loaded.

Relatively light weight and low-to-the ground, the Altra Escalante running shoe has almost full throttle flexibility with generous underfoot protection, making the shoe a safe and viable cruiser for long runs on the road.

"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.
